I have 2 remedies. The first is IF cold water works for you, Keep sipping and swishing etc for about an hour to an hour and a half but don't drink it. I done this and ended up poisoning myself, drinking too much water! Anyway, so do it for an hour then STOP completely. You're going to want to keep swishing but please don't. It will be painful, I won't lie, for up to 20 minutes. It'll be so painful you might even cry. But within 30 minutes, usually about 15-20, it'll be bearable or even gone completely. I was sipping water for about 5 hours, no lie until I stumbled upon that tip and I was so skeptical and crying in pain for 20 minutes but it disappeared. I'm not guaranteeing it'll work but usually for people who the cold water helps, it does work. The second tip is the accupressure that also worked the first time on me.


Position the tip of a finger in front of your ear hole. Open your jaw and and feel for a gap that forms. Press the point inside that gap. Do this carefully. You will feel a tingling sensation in your jaw. This partially paralyzes the nerves causing you so much pain from your toothache.


Reposition your finger directly under your ear where it meets your head. It should be in the gap behind your ear lobe. When you open your jaw the gap will get bigger. Press the point inside the gap. You will feel a numbing sensation in your ear and side of your head.


Trace a line down and around your jaw bone. Stop when you are directly under the outside corner of your eye. Press the point on the inside edge of your jaw bone. Press upward and outward toward your jaw bone. This will make much of your mouth go numb.


Move your finger up to your cheek bone. Feel along the underside of the cheek bone until you reach a point directly under your eye ball when it is looking forward. Press the point upward and inward toward your cheek bone. Much of your face will go numb including your upper jaw.


Leave your head completely and find your Achilles tendon. It is the ridge that connects your calf and heel. Press the points on both side of the middle of your Achilles tendon. Do this in the indention between the ridge and the bone that sticks out in your ankle. This pressure point forces your body to divert attention away from your toothache.
After doing that, if the above hasn't worked or worked a little and you want more relief, rub an ice cube on the join between the first finger and thumb. I didn't have any ice so I run a cold tap and held my hand under it for a while, about 6 inches from tap and it worked. I done all of the above in one night because even though stopping the cold water helped, it was still unbearable. Like I said, I'm not guaranteeing it will work but it can't help to try surely.

Thank you! Thank You! Thank You! I am a grown man at 45 and have broken bones and walked on them as if nothing. The pain had me shaking and thinking if i had a gun i would of been tempted. I was over it and the ice cold water was the only thing that kept pain at bay. Unlike you i knew better than to drink, so i just kept spitting out for four hours. I knew when you said to just quit and bear it, that it was gonna be rough. I did just that and the pain was excruciating, but it worked. After about ten minutes i could feel it subsiding and within 30 minutes i was asleep, after being unable to sleep for two days. When the pain was at its worst i just prayed and said lord get me thru this and it worked. It was not easy but so worth it! Thx. again Philip
