Ok this may not be for everyone but it certainly worked for me. I have been having problems with one tooth in particular, a molar, and it has abscessed three times now and well this last time I was in so much pain that I did something I did not think I could bring myself to do. First you can go and get a syringe from a Feed store they come in those plastic packs that people use to give their dogs shots. Take that syringe and feel where it is the softest yet pallable spot and possibly throbbing on the gum line next to the tooth, insert the needle and aspirate. You may have to do it more than once but you'll get rid of the infection and you'll get instant relief like I did. I had my abscess for five straight days of agony and was on Azythromycin and that stuff is awful and I couldn't complete the prescription. Now I'm medicating with Garlicin and Vitamin C. I hope this helps someone.
i couldent eat couldent sleep nothing was working,the detist gave my liquid lydocainto ease the pain till they pulled all my teeth,3 days away from the operation the pain was so bad i thought i would die i read these home remidies and that night i hade the best sleep i dabbed PEANUT BUTTER on my gums and fell asleep with a hot water bottle on the side of my face wow it was amazing
I had a toothache and no insurance and the earliest I could get an appointment to the clinic was in one month. I was in tears and couldn't sleep. Here is what works:
Oregano Oil is the best with less mess than the flakes. Just put one or two drops on a Q-tip and rub it over the infected gum or tooth. Works wonders.
I have also been taking Activated Charcoal capsules which draws out the toxins in your body. As well as packing my tooth in an activated charcoal poulstice wrapped in gauze or cheesecloth and sleep with it overnight.
I mixed Activated charcoal (break open a few capsules), Oil of Oregano (1-2 drops), liquid bentonite clay-mix together to make a thick paste and scoop into a gauze or piece of cheesecloth and stick it up in the gum where it is infected.
Hope this helps many as much as it did me.
So my toothache started Thursday morning...I took 4 ibuprofen and the pain was gone for most of the day. However, by 10pm that night I was in tears due to the amount of pain. I saw my general practitioner on Friday, she gave me darvocet and Z-pac antibiotic. I added a few ibuprofen to this and the pain went away for a good 30 minutes. I didn'y sleep again on FRiday night so I called my GP and asked what else I could do for the pain. She then prescribed Norco. It helps to some extent but really it just makes me groggy. I've tried icing, heating, clove oil, orajel, I even lanced an abcess white head that formed around my abcessed crown. I've been in a ton of pain. Here's the miracle remedy for me, and it does not take the pain clear away, but it dulls it enough so that it is bearable. Peppermint tea, I steeped it for a minute in a cup of hot water. I used the tea to swish around in my mouth and then put the tea bag in between my gumline and my cheek. The pain went from a 10 to about a 3. I'm going to take some more ibuprofen and try to get a little more sleep. Hope this helps someone else!
Alright, Well i was suffering from major pain, I have a wisdom tooth that has been broken in half for about a year now.... It hasnt bothered me before until last night.... I found this website, I tried a few on here... None of them worked for me. So I got to thinking, Oregano oil and leaf has numbing properties and baking soda has numbing and cleaning properties.. So I kind of made my own.. warm water, thick coating of baking soda and about a dropper full of oregano oil or you can use the lead if you would like. Swish in your mouth... The pain should go away right away and stay gone for a good 3 hours, it does taste horrible but at least it takes the pain completely away for a short time..
Take little pieces of bread soked in warm milk put one piece on side by the gum and one on top of the tooth hold there for like 2 min or so and repeat till the whole peice of bread is gone this takes the infection out and stops the throbbing and pain I am doing it as we speek works wonders.
cream of tarter works good and fast. just put on toothbrush.and brush away.
I just wanted to warned women who are pregnant not to full around with a abcessed tooth of any kind get medical care A.S.P. It can kill the unborn child.
I have had several abscessed teeth I have dealt with and had the doctor pull 2 of them. Since i am running out of teeth :( I opted to hold onto the others till the bitter end. I used the Garlic and tea bag treatment and it REALLY works. When you finally get the infection gone, I have came up with a regimen that has kept my remaining teeth in great shape as well as my gums. I had a couple of deep fillings that would abscess often so I came across TEA TREE OIL! The stuff is heals about everything and is a must have for anyone. It penetrates easily though the gums and down to the roots of your teeth and is a strong natural antibiotic. After I got rid of the infection on the teeth initially, I religiously floss then brush my teeth and gums thoroughly with straight tea tree oil then hold the remains in my mouth for a bit and swishit around. It tastes pretty strong but I have come to love the sanitized feeling I have after. After my teeth felt really good for a while...of course I slacked off and stopped my tea tree oil and flossing and a couple weeks later, the lovely abscess was back and so I got back into the regimen and all has been well for several years! The tea tree oil will also cure impetigo, ringworm, acne, and all sorts of stuff. the closest thing to a cure-all as I have found. Wonderful stuff!
My brother and i have had very bad abcessed teeth before. My brothers was swollen for about 3 days. we tried swishing listerine and peroxide. but then i noticed what lookd like a vein leading to my brothers eye. The abcess got so bad in those 3 days it was trying to infect his right eye and we got an earbeating from the dentist who told us we made it just in time. So please be careful. Do yr best to make it to a dentist. And do what you can for the unbearable pain.
