A good solid rinse with either OTC hydrogen peroxide (or, even better, there is an excellent oral rinse that I cannot remember the name of but it is in the dental aisle in a white bottle w/blue lettering, specially made for mouth ulcers, canker sores, denture tenderness, etc.) After the good swishing for at least 60 seconds, spit it out (try not to swallow it). It should not sting but you may feel the tingle of the bubbling action. Afterward, gently squirt undiluted clove oil into the affected, tender area with a small (perhaps a baby syringe). It may not taste great but it will help relieve the pain until you can get in to the dentist to make sure the infection is dealt with.

I believe what your referring to is called Biotene. I found it today in my local grocery store for about $5 a bottle.


Glyoxide also works well.


i think your thinking of peroxyl by colgate


I have used glyoxide a few times and it is great. I think I paid $5 for it at walmart.


Orajel now makes an orajel antiseptic mouth sore rinse for the same things you mentioned. It is around 5 or 6 dollars but worth the money.
