4 Comments for the Tooth Ache Home Remedy


I've been suffering with this toothache for about a week, and the pain finally climaxed on Saturday. It was so bad, I felt like someone was driving a railroad spike into my molar. My dog would just lay next to me licking my hand because he KNEW what kind of pain I was in. I scoured the internet till I found this site, but eventually found my OWN solution to the pain that lasts all day pretty much.

For startersl, almost none of these home remedies has worked for me- the vanilla extract did nothing but burn and taste horrible, the salt took the pain from about a 10 to a 9. Ibuprofen only worked on the first day for an hour. Brushing vigorously for about two minutes actually cut the pain in half, but it came back about 15 minutes later. Orajel is a joke. I haven't tried the cloves though, but now I don't need to.

Here's what I DID discover that works for me personally:

First of all, invest the 5 dollars in Temparin Max- it's like a dental 'cement' that will at least cover the cavity and keep it from being exposed while you decide what you need to do to get it fixed. In the mornings I take two extra strength excedrin and 20mgs of adderall (yup, ADD medicine), then I go running. As soon as all those meds are coursing through my blood stream, the pain completely disappears for pretty much 10+ hours. When I get home from work and start relaxing, the pain starts to come back, but right before bed I take a shot of gin and follow it with 1 and a quarter times the suggest dosage of NyQuil or any similar cold flu syrup. It dulls the pain down to about a 1; enough to fall asleep. As soon as I wake up the next day, the pain is back, but not as bad as it used to be. Where it used to be a 15 on a scale of 1-10, in the morning it only reaches about a 4 now, then I repeat my relief process all over again.

CUT back on the sugar, drink pretty much NOTHING but water, stay active and get to a dentist if at all possible. It will be expensive, but they offer payment plans. I'm lucking out in this case though- I have to go to Sweden for work and the company I'm doing work for there says that I can get my dental work done for free since they have nationalized healthcare~ That's where I went to the doctor last year where it would have cost so many hundreds of dollars here in the USA.

I think this is a dangerous suggestion to take prescription medicine that is for ADD. Do not follow this suggestion unless under a doctor's supervision.

The amphitemene in the Adderal is probably what killed the pain...not a good idea to mix with the NyQuil.


Taking more than the suggested amount of Nyquil can cause respiratory failure from an overdose of Dextromethorphan; in which case you won't have to worry about the tooth ache anymore.


I think you need to go talk to a doctor about what you take... it sounds like your relying way to much on stuff you shouldn't! Thanks for trying to help... but NO ONE SHOULD FOLLOW THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
