Tooth with Exposed Nerve Home Remedy Comments

2 Comments for the Tooth with Exposed Nerve Home Remedy


I have a couple of teeth (top/bottom...right side) where fillings came out of cavities. the tooth on top has the nerve exposed. last night, around 3 am, I started having bad pain from both teeth at once. I took 3 ibuprofen, and an hour later, the pain had not subsided, and I was searching for some kind of relief on this site. First, I tried some of what was listed here.....peroxide, warm salt water (which actually soothed the pain while I swooshed the water in my mouth) a heating pad on the side of my face, but NOTHING was getting rid of the pain. I went to the er, (and I don't recommend going unless u think u have an infection), and I asked the dr what could possibly help. He explained that when a filling falls out, it exposes the nerve. he suggested dental wax, tylenol, and ibuprofen. Well, I went and purchased a mint-flavored dental wax (ie....this is the same wax ppl can put on braces.) The monment I put the wax where the filling was, I immediately felt relief. the wax prevents air from hitting the nerve, and the mint is soothing. the dr also recommended to not drink anything of extreme temperatures....nothing too hot, or freezing. I have taken 3 tylenol, and 2 ibuprofen. Anyway, I am going to be able to sleep, and the wax will help til I can get to the dentist. I hope this helps you. God bless you, and I hope you can find relief.
