3 Comments for the Tooth Ache Pain Home Remedy


I was up at 3 am in tears from pain. I had a mild toothache yesterday and before I went to be I took 2 ibuprofen which usually helps. When I was woken at 3am from pain, nothing that usually works was working. I had read remedies before for my brother(thankfully his are being fixed this week) and remembered seeing something about a tea bag on the tooth.

I was hesitant. I gag easily and was afraid it would taste horribly and the only tea bags I have in the house are big ones. After taking 3 more ibuprofen and reading through the other remedies to see if there's one I had supplies for that I havent tried with little to no relief I went in search of my tea bags.

I cant believe that it actually worked. I have to say I also did the pressure point between the left forefinger and thumb and I have spearmint numbing spray(was a gag gift, marketed for bedroom fun but came in handy here)and both helped some but the tea bag is what allowed me to get back to sleepy rather than weepy. I fell asleep maybe 15 minutes after putting it in my mouth. The taste wasnt bad either. Made a nice little saliva brew in my mouth but I kept a bowl close to spit in every few minutes.

Its been hours and there is no pain so far. I have taken 2 more ibuprofen just to stay ahead of it and I have a fresh tea bag in my pocket. I dont care how ridiculous it looks, it will be in my mouth if the pain returns. I will also be purchasing the red cross toothache kit today when I get a chance. Thank you so much to the people who suggested these things.

Also, previous experience- be careful with the meds. I accidentally overdosed last winter. In the midst of the pain, I wasnt keeping track of how much I took and was just taking to get rid of the pain enough to get a few minutes of sleep here and there. Went on for about a week and on the 5th and 6th days I had finished an entire bottle and my liver tried to shut down. I spent 3 days in the ICU hooked to a poo load of machines. It really wasnt fun and they treat you like youre some junkie. The worst part- they have to detox you for 24hrs so you dont get any pain meds during that and they cant treat you for the tooth until youve detoxed. Worst 24hrs of my life and Ive recovered from a c-section with no meds at all afterward.

I was told by the doctor there that up to 800mg ibuprofen and 1 tylenol will do the same as a strong pain pill(vicodin is what they compared it to). That is the combo I usually use when it gets bad. Works most of the time.

nimuslide is the best alternative but clove oil is the best but heals slowly best way is to take out the tooth or do a root canal treatment the later cost a fortune and a reapeated visit to doctor and weeks of medicine plus care to the tooth, and extraction would result a tooth less and a temporary injury get a month or more to heal some time more I had once installed a silver in the tooth without the rtc but then the silver expanded and the pain was back the only relief was rtc though if your tooth is in bad shape that is broken or something they would advice to take out. also the rtc always donot sucsess in case of failure you have to take the tooth out any way
raju mukherjee, had i tooth out and 2 rtc and 3rd is on the ride


You should not use things like Ibuprofen or Tylenol, as taking too much will affect your liver.

If anything, you can take magnesium, which is what is in aspirin that takes the pain away.

The more natural you go with this, the better. Take a good oil of oregano, if you think you have an infection. Oregamax is a good one, but it's expensive, though you can find it on a site called Vitacost for about half the price, but it will take a few days to get here.

The clove oil is an excellent idea, or you can get whole cloves and some sage and make a tea. Both clove and sage are good for toothaches.

Also, homeopathic remedies, like Hypericum, if it is in the nerve, and Belladonna if it seems to go to your ear. Homeopathic remedies are very safe and you can never overdose on them. Also, remember magnesium is the ingredient in aspirin which takes the pain away. I would never, ever use Ibuprofen or Tylenol.

The tea bag idea is a new one and I will try that on my son who has bad teeth and has problems with tooth pain.

Cheri needs some Leather Straps!

so, do i get this stuff at a pharmacy, or a health food place? I've always dealt with the dentist and this time he will want to take out several teeth (which does;'t work for me til after holiday - i work in retail - time is of the essence. I've taken Naproxen and Ibuprofen every two hours and just tested the black teabag thing - that has given some pretty immediate relief. oh yeah, a sleeping pill...maybe i will sleep tonight.
