I use a product called oraljel, an over the counter dental pain relief, it's just like getting a needle from the dentist, it last for a few hours then you have to repeat rubbing it on your gums,,,,,,
Wow, where do I start. Well I am 20 years old and have been dealing with an abscesses tooth for about two years now. I originally went in for a root canal and as part of the step one process they drill the hole into your tooth and cap it until next visit. well, before the next visit, the filling had come out and my tooth cracked from being so decayed.. I experienced SEVERE pain, and I mean I have been though a lot of pain, extreme stomach pains, kidney stones, etc. But of all, this tooth pain was by FAR the wost EVER!!! my dentist did such a shitty job on my tooth I never went back to him and I take complete responsibility on never getting my tooth fixed the proper way. Also being I as well had bad insurance and so fourth. So on that part, my fault. Anyway I experienced up late night, chills, naseau, fever, swollen mouth. it was horrible.. eventually the pain went away and I havnt expiernced ANY pay from that tooth in over a year. Well a few days ago I went to work with excrutiating pain coming from my tooth. It wasn't even THAT bad until I got home, went to bed thinking it would go away, and woke up in the middle of the night hystericle.. The pain was truly unbareable. I constipated on going to the ER but decided to take some Pain Reliever and go from there. It definitely helped the pain fom a 10 to maybe a 5-6. Anyway, my gum right now if blown up and I can see the pus inside it, which is what right now is REALLY hurting. I literally tried everything. vanilla extract, salt water with warm warm mixed and swished inside my mouth. toothpaste on it, and even mouth wash. I literally had no answers and stated taking any medicine I possible could to reduce the pain (advil,ibuprofien) I am so desperate for help, One thing that has worked for me in the past hour is the tea bag. I used hot water in a cup and let the tea bag dissolve and colled out and put in my gum. I don't know if it just high hopes, but I definitely am not in as much pain. I really want the pus to pop overnight as I go to bed soon. I am going to a walk in clinic tomorrow for a true antibiotic and some answers until I can get an apt with a dentist.
Honestly, tooth pain is the absolute WORST and anyone who is reading this and has the same issue, I feel your pain truly. And we are some strong people to go through this. I appreciate everyone's input on this horrible condition and I hope you all get some relief!
I had an abscessed tooth a month ago and the pain was killing me. I immediately started doing all kinds of natural things to ease the pain. I used clove oil, which helped ease the pain. I took garlic tablets, colloidal minerals, vegetable based calcium, 50% Bee Propolis, Swanson vitamin C with rose hips, Dr. Schultz's Superfood in grape juice, diatomaceous earth mixed in with the Superfood, and swished in my mouth a tablespoon of water with an 1/8 tsp of comfrey root for 20 minutes then rinsed my mouth out thoroughly after swishing. At night I brushed my teeth with coconut oil. The pain was slowly going away so I put a paste of diatomaceous earth mixed with pure coconut oil and placed some on my sore gums and around the hurting teeth. I added some Superfood powder once in my mouth to help the taste. I slept with the paste in my mouth. By morning, the pain was gone although I could still feel it a little. I actually slept a little better too. That morning, I repeated everthing except the bee propolis and the paste at night. Things slowly improved so I wasn't sure what worked best until I had a relapse today, a month later. That is when I came across this board.
To make a long story short, the thing that has worked WONDERS is the paste! Once I put this paste back on my gums and left it for an hour or so, the pain starting going away. I know my diet plays a part as well. Stay away from starches and sugars until you are TOTALLY cured! I used this paste for three nights in a row and thought I was all better until this relapse. I will continue it this time. I am finally able to think a little better as I type. The best thing to do is to work on prevention before you get out of your head with pain! Hopefully, lesson learned.
Ok so i feel it is my duty to share the remedy that worked for me. i have an abcessed tooth in the very back top right of my mouth. it is soooooo painful. i have been trying to get this under wraps for days. i cannot afford a dentist rn and needed something to dull the throbbing pain.
i tried everything just short of my own urine (which is apparently an instant remedy)
i tried turmeric, garlic, vanilla extract, vanilla bean, salt,tea and on and on..
FINALLY. I rinsed with peroxide, used a BRAND NEW Insulin syringe and poked the head of the abcess.. i rinsed again woth peroxide and kind of let it sit over the puncture.
after that i opened up an advil iquigel and applied it directy to the affected area! Voila!! I may finally be able to sleep... its currently 4:05am
i hope anyone out there with toothpain finds the remedy they are looking for.
About three weeks ago, I experienced an abscess in my left gum. My cheek expanded, fever got pretty extent, chills. Took numerous showers. Ice pack for swelling, Garlic Oil Gels, then mixed Apple Cider Vinegar, some salt and warm water into a 3/4 of a cup...SWISHED....ice pack on face, woke up with abscess draining, yuckiest taste too. The other day, went to eat, tooth broke after falling on the ice, while chewing something(can't remember yet what it was.lol...Went to dentist today, they numbed me up..dentist squeezed my cheek some, injected three novacaines in. They came back to me about 10 minutes later, tried to extract tooth 4 times, then told me; you will need to go to an oral surgeon..you have an infected abscessed tooth, but I am putting you on 150 mg of clindamycin, and you will take it every 8 hours, until complete. Referral taken with xray film to oral surgeon. They are having me take the antibiotics and return for surgery Friday March 14, 2014 0930 am...this should do the trick, but will update when more is done then.
the other day i woke up with such a bad pain, i went to an emergency dentist appointment (Im from UK, free dental almost) Well i was given an anti-biotic (penicillin) but no pain relief, the pain was terrible.
every night i would almost be in tears with pain,
i tried some remedies like, fresh garlic on the tooth, warm salty water, mouth wash and a tea bag on the tooth, none worked for me as a pain relief or a solution, because the abscess was inside a temp filling i had recieved a few moths ago,.
the only thing I did was to stop pain was 1. Lay on the part of my face that hurt most (no idea why but it completely stopped any pain when i laid on it)
2. have an ice pack against your face, i constantly had an ice pack against my face as it helped, for a few days, then my tooth got sensitive so i stopped for a day then it was fine,.
3. having warm baths, i loved having baths even more, every time i went in it stopped the pain, until i got out...
4. occupy your mind, i hadd to write out a latter (by hand) to my friend in prison, the whole time i was writing the letter, the pain wasnt there, it was great!
i would not recommend using anything on this website for a long term solution, you need to get to the dentist to get an anti-biotic, its necessary! they take about 48 hours to work and when they have started to work, god damn you will feel a lot better, i did! I am now just waiting to make an appointment to have the tooth taken out, feeling scared, untill i remember the pain it caused me!
even if you cant afford the dentist, surely you can save? Im sure an abscess cant live forever, use some of these pain relief to help you get through the time until you have the money, If your reading this right now, remember, i felt your pain, i really do, feels like the worst pain imaginable? Hope you have it sorted out very soon, good luck!
To whomever mentioned cloves, thank you!
I had a list of things gathered from here that I was going to try (gargling warm salt water, though I had tried this earlier and it didn't help, the rubbing alcohol, ground cloves, and the garlic).
Well, as I was getting ready to try these, I remembered I had clove oil that I usually use for incense, but that is also 100% pure and natural. So before gathering the other items, I dabbed a few drops on a finger, and applied it to the gums around my the teeth in question. OMG, almost instant relief!
The left side of my head was cracking open in pain. I didn't expect it to actually help with that too, but it did!
I can't see the abscess, but know it's there, possibly beneath a tooth. I also had/have a sharp pain in my neck, on the same side of the head, and learned that it's most likely because my lymph node there has been draining the infection, and because of it, the infection has spread to my throat now too.
Okay, now that the pain is 95% gone, it's time to talk about treatment. The clove oil won't take the infection away, obviously. Tea bags were mentioned several times for drawing it out, but mine is hidden, so that won't help me.
I'd like to mention what I plan trying. The doc would give antibiotics, right? But synthetic antibiotics can be harmful to one's immune system, and I can't afford a doc anyways. So I plan on using natural antibiotics which, unlike their synthetic counterpart, won't attack your body. The 3 sources I've decided on using: honey, chamomile tea, and fresh, raw onions. I'll be drinking the tea with honey at least twice a day for a week. I'll also be taking at least an additional tablespoon of the honey via a spoon. The onions, I'll finely chop, and have at least one serving a day.
Thanks again for the clove tip!
America I have been in pain for about 3 days do to I have an abscessed tooth I mean hurting, no sleep, and I can bearly eat i dunn drop 10lbs I know but here's the best home remedy I have ever had and it came from this web site a teabag I didnt have no green, black or any other tea bags just my regular lipton tea bags I use to make my tea and it works thanks for the help GOD BLESS who ever cameup with that remedy pain has reduced 90%......
I sympathise fully with anyone reading this and experiencing this pain.
I am just out the other side so want to share what helped for me.
I had bad tooth pain for a week before it became unbearable. In this week things that helped were:
*COLD WATER held on the tooth - this was my Godsend even when the pain got beyond any level I thought possible
*Vodka (or any spirit) held in the mouth
*A cold can of juice out the fridge held on the cheek
*Paracetamol & ibuprofen
*Brushing with sendodyne toothpase
*Cloves (whole,powdered,oil whatever!)
*Cold teabags held on the area
*Crystals (a bit out there but worked for me)
On Friday my pain was so bad I had to get an emergency dental appointment. X-rays showed no obvious problem so I was put on Amoxicillin to try and localise any infection. The dentist was very sympathetic and gave me some numbing jags. WOW! A few hours relief.
Basically over the weekend I had a trip to hospital, a couple to emergency dentists and even solpadol and tramadol were not even touching the pain. I am a proud 28 year old but was screaming and crying on the floor in pain in front of my whole family. Very embarrassing.
Yesterday I had an appointment with my own dentist. The antibiotics had worked and one tooth was singled out. I had the option of root treatment but the tooth had a deep filling and by this point I just needed an end. My other option was an extraction which I was more than happy with.
So here I am more than a week after the first pangs looking like buzz lightyear. My face has broken out probably with the stress of the whole thing never mind lack of sleep and nutrition and I have lost an adult molar.
I care not a jot. Honest. If you are having this pain you cannot wait. I would have sold my soul to have the pain stop.
Kudos to anyone that is able to deal with this kind of pain longterm.
Sending you love and hoping you find a solution until a root treatment or extraction is available to you.
I just had to post my experience because it was so surprising.
For about 4 days an abscess had been forming and by yesterday it was pretty painful with a pretty big lump on my gum.
Last night around 5:00 PM I began using
home made colloidal silver
and today I can't even tell that there was a problem.
Initially I took a big swig from the bottle and swallowed it, but after than I just took a very small amount, a table spoon at most and swished it around in my mouth and spit it out, and did this occasionally through the evening hours. Maybe 6 to 10 times between 5:00 PM and 9:00 PM.
By 9:00 the abscess had almost totally disappeared. This morning when I got up it was even better.
I've continued the small swishing throughout the day today and will do so for a few more days to be sure, but as of now at 5:30 PM I can't eve tell that there was ever a problem.
A friend of mine gave me about a quart bottle of colloidal silver a few years ago and I'm glad I remembered I had it hidden in the dark corner of my closet.
My friend makes the colloidal silver using a kit purchased over the internet.
