3 Comments for the Tooth Ache Home Remedy


I was in agony with sudden onset toothache on a friday evening of a bank holiday weekend :(
Got to the dentist 4 days later after dosing myself with as much pain relief as I could get my hands on (nothing really helped). He gave me a sheet with the following information:
Most toothaches are caused by inflammation of dead or dying inner tooth pulp. The following regime will relieve toothaches by reducing the inflammation as well as the pain.
400mg Neurofen Express, 3hrs later 500mg paracetamol, 3hrs later 400mg neurofen express.
Pain should be gone after 2 days.
May cause increase in stomach acid. DO NOT TAKE if you have a history of stomach ulcers/gastric problems. DO NOT use Neurofen Plus (contains codeine). DO NOT use if allergic to Neurofen or Paracetamol. DO NOT use if you are taking WARFARIN.

I used the soluble paracetamol (1000mg) which hit the spot quickly.
Incidentally, my tooth had decayed to the root and it was agonising. I had actually googled 'pulling out your own teeth'. This regime really helped me out. worth a try guys..
