Toothaches! Most of us have had them. Most of us have had no idea what to do... I've tried a ton of things. I've got a severe toothache now (that's lasted for 19 hours straight). I've tried everything yet again. Here's what I've discovered. You may have seen it before.

1. Do a salt-water rinse repeatedly for about 10 minutes. If you prefer to do it longer, go ahead.

2. Rinse your mouth out with warm water (not cold... especially if your teeth are sensitive) and then apply Sensodyne tooth paste onto your gums and teeth that hurt (use your finger or a Q-tip to apply) and leave it on for anywhere from 10-20 minutes. Your choice.

3. Rinse mouth out with warm water again and spit everything out. Next, swish with mouthwash. I have very strong mouthwash so its instantly very cold and very numbing. Do it for a few minutes, then spit that out and rinse out your mouth slightly again.

4. Now if your pain is still present, you can always take painkillers like ibuprofen, aleve, motrin or tylenol. If you're lucky enough to get something like codeine or some other prescription, highly-effective painkiller, awesome. I'd suggest trying to lay down and get some rest at this point. You'll need as much rest as you can get, because you never know when you'll wake up in the middle of the night with a toothache that won't go away for, oh I don't know.. 19 hours -.-

Other Options

-Rub alcohol (like whiskey or vodka) on your gums and gently around your tooth where it hurts. Dab a lot cuz a little bit doesn't do much.
-Use clove oil (I've never tried this)
-Use Orajel
-Use Orajel and then hold an ice pack up to your face where the pain is in your teeth
-People don't suggest using heat, but personally, it relaxes me and stops the pain enough to sleep for 15-30 minutes.
-Peppermint extract! It numbs your gums almost instantly. Pretty much anything with mint helps.
-Instead of a plain ol' salt water rinse, go ahead and minse some garlic and throw that in the glass, too. Mix it up well, then take a big swig and swish around, hold it on the area of where your pain is, and repeat. This could also work for getting rid of abscesses, if done repeatedly for a few days. Take anti-biotics, too.


And last but not least... Please, try to get to a dentist asap. I have a huuuge fear of dentists, yet I'm still going on Monday, most likely.

Good luck. <3
