please excuse my spelling but...I have had 8 abcesses so i speak from expriance , THE ONE AND ONLY CURE TO WORK 100 PERCENT ALL THE TIME IS BAKING SODA AND SALT MIX ON A DAMP BIT OF COTTON WOOL . CHANGE IT EVERY HALF HLOUR WITHIN A FEW HOURS NO ABCESS LEFT AND AFTER SAY HALF AN HOUR THE PAIN GOES . I DID THIS WITH ALL 8 OF THE ABCESSES I HAD AND TRUST ME I TRIED EVERTHING , FOR TEMP PAIN RELEIF USE LISTORINE MOUTH WASH PAIN STOPS FOR 5 MINS OR SO . GOOD LUCK FELLOW ABCESSERS LOL
seems like theres alot of things, so i ran to the food pantry and put the first thing i saw in my mouth, which happend to be a bottle of balsamic vinegar. swished it and swallowed, pain gone.
This site was a real relief when I found it today... my gum abcess has been brewing for several days & I was just using mouthwash & crossed-fingers to hope it went away - dreading the thought of trying to get a dentist appointment next week. After reading these pages, I had a look in my cupboard & tried a drink of (alcoholic) peppermint then back to the mouthwash.
Thought I'd also try the dry teabag method, only left it in half an hour, now, 2 two hours later, the abcess is no longer visible. Didn't feel it go, only had a slight nasty taste in my mouth but just now,after cleaning my teeth & using mouthwash I looked & prodded - nothing there! Wont' say I'm cured, see how I go but I feel fine now. Thanks to all of you.
OK.. My dentist prescribed me Amoxicillin and 7.5mg Vicodin..Until now I thought Vicodin would cure any pain!!! NO way!! Then called him back told him still in pain, then he told me to take 4 IB Profen at a time with the Vicodin. As long as you don't go over 3,200 MG of IBProfen its ok to take more then 2 at a time..If you go over the 3,200MG daily it can eat away your stomach lining and cause more problems. So take 4 of the IBprofen at a time I do that every 4-5 hours to make sure the pain does not come back before next dose kicks in, Then I tried the Vanilla extract that helps a lil bit but the best is any type of 'caine' Benzocaine, Lidociane, anything you can get with the work 'caine' because that will NUMB you good! Just use a q tip and apply all around and on tooth! I so feel better then I did. I had a tooth that was broken attempted to be fixed, however we are a week later and its obvious NOT fixed..Nor fixable. My tooth has since turned gray in color that means its DEAD! So why do I have pain yet beyond me!!??? I HATE tooth pain more then anything and I'm terrified of the dentist but happy I found a good one that is nice! I'm excited for the weekend to be over to get this tooth wiggled out! What a relief that will be!! Does tooth pain ever go away if you NEVER get teeth fixed? I wonder? My mother neglected to take care of my teeth as a child and I sure wish I knew better as I do know now buts its almost too late, Teeth NEVER heal, so now she left me with this mess..I only have 23 teeth..everyone should have 32..
I have a tooth i need a root canal on and i have been reading abou tall these remedies and found out that the extract on a q-tip works great especially if it is mint extract because its 90% alcohol with some tiger balm on the outer cheek.
In my search for Vanilla Extract as suggested I found only Immitation Vanilla but I did have Almond Extract.. So I thought well what the heck and OMG...
I put my finger to the mouth of the bottle and wet it with the Almond Extract.. Rubbed that on the tooth and instantly I felt relief.
I've been writhing in pain for the last couple of days with tooth pain. I've grown immune to benzocane in fact it almost seems to make it worse. I have been using Listerine antiseptic today for break through pain. This works GREAT!! I swish about half a mouthfull all over the affected area and get almost instant relief. but there is a downside... the pain comes back about every half hour for most of the day but has subsided this evening. Also taking acetomeniphen 1500mg about every 2-3 hours. Doesnt really seem to help all that much. but for INSTANT RELIEF I used the Listerine Antiseptic (the nasty tasteing stuff) feels like my mouth is on fire but it kills the pain fast!! just make sure its not cold when I put it on affected area. If its potentialy too cold i hold it in my mouth before swishing it.... hope this helps best of luck
I have a toothache like no other, my wisdom teeth are rotting and breaking into pieces and there are times when live nerves are exposed to the air. I have tried absolutely everything, and what I have found best for instant relief is to in a teapot boil whole cloves, fresh lemon (rind and all), and lemon juice, allow it to cool to room temperature and then swish it in your mouth around the tooth with pain. It is an instant pain re leaver when the pain is so extreme that it is unbearable. Also eating a lemon whole, rind and all will help to remove infection from your mouth.
I have been fighting 4 boils (2 very large and 2 small) for several days making ne VERY miserable (more miserable than recovering from the c-section I had a month ago.....no joke)I tried the Campho Phenique and a large bandage and they opened and drained in just a few hours. It does kind of sting as it begins to drain but gave me almost instant relief!!!!
i am from united kingdom (Edinburgh City) Scotland i am sitting here at 1o'clock in the morning with a cup of tea and whisky,i hate the dentist but pain ain't worth it.It's best we just goto the place and get it fixed i'd do anything to get to sleep so here's me drinking whisky :P but 2moro am going to get my tooth fixed.better than sitting with pain and no sleep.
