2 Comments for the Tooth Nerve Pain Home Remedy


I have a tooth with nerve pain. No damage to the tooth, just hurting for no apparent reason. I've had another tooth several years ago with the same pain and it turns out the nerve was dying. Reading about covering the tooth with dental wax gave me an idea. I chewed two pieces of sugarless gum and used my tongue to press it over the hurt tooth and surrounding teeth. It's working out well! Clearly not a permanent fix but since its the Christmas holiday weekend, I'm pretty much sans dentist until well after the new year. Plus I'd keep gum on my tooth forever to keep that horrible pain away.

Yes that is what is helping me until I can get to the dentist Monday!


I was in excruciating pain from a broken tooth. I have tried Orajel mouth wash that has pain reliever, regular mouth wash, chloraseptic spray and OTC pain relievers. All helped temporarily, literally maybe a minute. But I bought some mint gum and its done the trick. I can't get into the dentist until Monday morning so I've kept my tooth packed with gum.
