5 Comments for the Tooth Ache Home Remedy

Mwai Kibaki

I had a terrible throbbing toothache that kept me awake for two days. I unsuccessfully tried acetaminophen, ibuprofen and Hydrocodone/APAP. The latter made me go high without stopping the pain. To my surprise cold H2O was able to stop the pain and throbbing in about 5 seconds. However, the pain recurred in about 5 minutes – most likely due to saliva or air or heat generated spontaneously in the closed mouth. I had not slept for more than 60 hours and started to worry that I’d go nuts and start breaking things. Through my creative faculty of imagination I figured out that I needed to bring my bed near a cold water faucet and connect a flexible pipe to my mouth in a sleeping position. I connected another pipe from the mouth to the drain and used some clips to keep the lips shut and pipes in secure position. Even though this contraption was able to kill pain it did not take me long to realize that I needed to stay awake all the time lest I chock with water and die! With this frustration and increasing feeling of going nuts due to sleep deprivation it behooved to seek the sage advice of home remedy experts online. That’s how I landed here. I tried a thing after a thing as I read through the blog thread until nothing seemed to work. Finally I made up my own concoction based on ingredients discretely described in this thread: Put 4 tea bags (black tea) in ½ cup of H2O, microwave to a boil to get a thick black tea extract, prepare ½ cup of baking soda [Sodium Hydrogen Carbonate or Sodium bicarbonate or NaHCO3] – dissolve to saturation, add mixed both reagents [tea + baking soda] to homogeneity, take a mouthful of the concoction and let it flood the area with the ruthless tooth for 10=15 minutes – absolutely do not swallow the stuff, spit the stuff out and rinse your mouth 2 – 3 times with cold water, wait to confirm that the pain won’t come back! I need to warn though that the concoction tasted worse than anything I know including elephant pee. Good luck!

You've tasted elephant pee?

Did elephant do anything for your toothache?


sweetheart I'm sorry you did all that and tried to become your own scientist but all you really had to do was chop up an onion and put it in a salad. Onions naturally kill the bacteria that's causing you the pain. I did this and my tooth hasn't bothered me in two years. Of course I like onions and I eat them in a salad or in one of my meals every day. This was the best advise I'd ever gotten from a remedies site and I hope it works for you as well as others.


I feel so bad for anyone with a toothache, I would rather give birth at least that pain go's away, and yes I have ten children.

Yep, It has been 1 month my toothache vanished. I think whatever happened after using that concoction is like a root canal.

By the way, I used the term 'elephant pee' in my posting to figuratively mean 'awful tasting'. I have to admit to the few curious of you that I have got no idea how real elephant pee tastes like
