7 Comments for the Abscessed Tooth Home Remedy


I like many people have no dental insurance and no money for a dentist visit. My tooth hurts so bad that I just want to get drunk as hell, hit it with a hammer or rip it out with some pliers. I have not slept in a week and it is destroying my life. I tried everything listed on this page. EVERYTHING! Garlic,Tea,pain killers, clove oil etc. etc.

The only thing that works for a few seconds of peace is Puting ice on the tooth until it is numb and then drinking hot coffee with a straw. The combination of hot and cold does something for the pain just long enough for me to fall asleep for an hour or two before I wake up in agony. I also take 800mg of advil with 800mg of tylenol every 2 hours. If I am late on the dosing the hot/cold treatment does not work and I am back to being in a pain coma.

If you are reading this I feel for you and I am sorry you are going through this. It is the worst pain I have ever had and it disrupts your whole life.

I suggest trying everything until something works for you.
You can also order amoxicillin online as FISH-MOX. It is made for a fish tank anti bacterial but it is made pharmacy grade and It will work for humans. It takes a few days for it to kick in but it will kill the infection so you can go back to your normal life.

I agree,, I can't afford a dentist either. I hate them as they are greedy ruthless and have no compassion. They would let you writhe in pain rather than give you care. I love the Fish-Mox idea.. i can't find any but I hope they will have it at a feed store. Thanks for that information. Hope you have relief


My heart goes out to you. I am suffering with the same thing...It has been 4 days now that I have known it a toothache because befor it became that localized it was just this extreme pain on one side of my head.....I have given birth without a doctor and have had major abdominal surgery without anything for pain I know pain......and I can handle pain.....but this is beyond pain. No person should have to suffer like this when there is a solution...It is inhumane.....Unless you have experienced it you cannot imagine it.....Dental health must be recognized as general health care and not a luxury.....


It is dentists attitudes that are allowing obmamcare and I am starting to like the idea.As conservative I am, I have no patience for dentists and they are all the same.takes weeks to get in and they want thier damn money now. One asked me to pay him as he was injecting novacain. Well the receptionist. It is inhumane that a Doctor allows people to suffer. Anyways I am reposting to thank you for sharing about FISH-MOX I got some today and it is starting to work already, Cipro don't work, But the amoxicillan is a God send. Thanks again it really is working.

You should NEVER take that much Tylenol (800mg every 2 hours). More than 4,000 mg (4Grams) of tylenol (acetaminophen)in a 24 hour period can be severely toxic and put you into liver failure and potentially kill you.


Hey there,I know I am late to the game here, but this is the first time I have tried to find a solution on the web. I am in the situation you are...I have tried everything on this site. I was expecting a miracle with the tea bag thing as it was working wonderfully with so many sufferers...nope..not for me. I don't know if anyone has mentioned it on here, but I had some Advil liquid gels and I decided to cut the tip off a couple of them and squeeze the medicine in a bowl. I then dipped a q-tip in the bowl and put it directly on my tooth. The problem is it tastes god awful and its very hard not to get it on your tongue or anywhere else in your mouth as it burns. I will say though, it does offer some relief. On a final note, I fully agree with you that this is the worse pain on the planet! I have major painkillers for an arthritis condition and they didn't even touch this pain. People who have never experienced this have little sympathy but I wouldn't wish this pain on anyone! I also agree with the dentist-money thing, it is brutal. Well, maybe I would wish this pain on all dentists, if just for a little while so they know what their patients suffer through !! Best of luck to you!


I'm pregnant now and willing to deliver this baby without any sort of pain drugs than to continue going thru the agony I am in from tooth pain, it's almost 3 am and I have been up for over an hr now with so much pain in my gums that its leading to my face, my ear and even my arm!!!! I read all different posts on this site, I tried the ice, the tea bags, hot water , salt water gargle but none of that did It for me. I finally decided to be my own 'dr' and took sea salt, pepper, and garlic powder with a spoon of olive oil , made a paste out of it and put it directly on the affected tooth for 5 minutes. Which in my case it's two teeth hurting right now!!!! I then gargled my mouth with warm water and I can honestly say I am about 95% pain free, hopefully I'll get some sleep now! It didn't take the pain away 100% but I was in sooooo much agony that even this has calmed me down and might let me get some shut eye. Good luck to anyone whose suffering teeth pain, it's definitely one of the worst pains a person can experience!
