899 Home Remedies for Abscessed Tooth


Hello fellow sufferers! I need 3 more extractions (2 lower wisdom teeth and shattered right lower molar), 4 root canals, 3 crowns, and countless fillings. The pain has been unbearable for some time and I am no longer able to sleep..

Here's what works for me (a little):

Strong drinking alcohol, swished.
Strong drinking alcohol, mixed with vanilla extract (real), applied directly to tooth.
Benzocaine, look for cough drops, they work better than sprays/liquids. Too much use increases pain.

I will be trying raw garlic cloves, raw onion, clove oil, tea tree oil, and green tea bags thanks to this site.

The pain is incredible. Vicodin works okay, oxycodone/contin is better.. however I do not have a prescription. Also, like all opiates (and opiate analogs) these drugs just make you not care about the pain. It's still there.

I am ashamed to live in a country where it is legal for a doctor to reject patients for lack of insurance, yet illegal to purchase drugs to alleviate pain without a prescription from said doctor. I could walk down the street and buy heroin for 5 dollars (THAT would cure the pain all day long) but cannot go to a pharmacy and acquire SAFE painkillers. We can't even buy antibiotics without a 100 dollar doctors visit (the exception being those of you taking pet antibiotics, to whom I wish the best of luck but will never emulate.)

Alcohol in any form, wine, mouthwash, Nyquil, etc - who knew this old wives tale worked so well especially with nerve pain. It seems to anesthetize the area on contact. Next must go to dentist you can actually die from an abcessed tooth at very least have infected tooth pulled before it spreads to the rest of your teeth. See following excerpt... Untreated tooth abscess is very dangerous. If abscessed tooth left untreated, the tooth infection can spread and you can lose your tooth or have other health problems. Left untreated, tooth abscess may compromise the immune system and in some cases may become life-threatening. A tooth abscess complication includes tooth loss, jaw bone damage, neighboring tooth damage or loss, sinus problems, brain abscess, heart damage, hospitalization, coma, and even death.
Some more tooth abscess complications that have been very much explained already: Facial Disfigurement as it eats away the facial bones; teeth falling out as the tooth abscess destroys the jaw holding the tooth; the picture is pretty gruesome.


Unfortunately none of the remedies I found here worked for me and spent all night clutching the side of my face, wishing the pain away! There has only ever been one thing that works for me : Scotch or brandy! Take a moderate size sip and keep it on the tooth for as long as you can (eventually the burn goes away as your gums numb out). Spit it out when you think its been on long enough (should be no pain after a few minutes) and you'll be pain free for a good while after !! You dont have to swallow it, so wont be getting drunk off it! Only problem is the smell! You end up smelling like a liquor store, but eh, if it takes the pain away!!

Hope this helps! My next dentist appointment is friday - Double root canal and extraction... oh dear :(


Garlic ... im so amazed that it actually worked chopped whole clove in half pressed it against my tooth so the juice came out of it and bam.. instant releif! TYvm


Hurricane Spray Gel.
You can pick this up at most drug stores, i.e. CVS. It costs around $20-$30 per little bottle but! this will get rid of the pain in less than 1 second from spraying this onto your infected area. I've had this abscessed tooth for about a month now and only used Hurricane once, I think it may have completely killed the nerves or something because I have absolutely no pain. I went from wanting to rip it out with pliers to no pain.


Thanks to the person who selected Nyquil..I only had the kids version but it took the egde off of it (havent been to sleep in 32 hours)thanks and god bless


For Constipation, I recommend Runny scambled eggs made with olive oil and melted butter and also, drink warm water mixed with two tablespoons of ground flax seeds. This has many bennefits. It is very healthy and will not add to any candida problems if you are taking antibiotics. This has helped me very much and I hope you too. All the best.

One product was my life saver for my horrible pain. Cepachol maximum numbing sore throat & cough lozenges. They are 20% benzocaine and 10% (I think) menthol. The chloraseptic Max lozenges would probably work well also. I was miserable for days and had already used TWO whole tubes of Anbesol(oragel). I thought I had built up a tolerance to the benzocaine in that tooth area because it didn't seem to work anymore. However, I think I just couldn't keep it on the area long enough to let the medicine get down to the roots before it was washed away by saliva. The lonzenges last over an hour each and provide hours and hours of complete pain relief. I would keep one in for 10-15 minutes and take it out. My tooth never hurt bad ever again. Out of the 20 different things I tried the lozenges were the only thing that ever provide hours of relief instead of 10 minutes of relief. Good luck. I feel your pain.
