11 Comments for the Tooth with Exposed Nerve Home Remedy


After two nights and three full days of incredible pain from a broken tooth with an exposed nerve, I came upon this website. I had eaten enough ibuprofen that I thought the only answer was getting it pulled, but I have no money. Even nyquil didnt work. THANK GOD FOR THIS SITE!!! I took a huge garlic clove smashed it with a knife, ripped it in half then rubbed it all over the hole and left it in between my gum and tooth. In a matter of one minute, the pain was gone, like gone gone. I left the garlic in as long as I could take the sting, not from my tooth but the flesh on my cheek. Come to find out, garlic has alot of antibacterial cleaning powers and usually that is what causes the toothaches. Just to let you know, I was afraid to let anything near that hole, wish i had done it on the first damn night.

Just wanted to say thanks for posting this! I actually had a toothache that ended up being what I think was an infection. I was running a fever and the pain was excruciating. I removed the outer peel, smashed the garlic so i could make almost a cover for my tooth and then gently held it there in place for about 30 minutes. The pain went from a 10 to a 3 in the first 6 minutes as long as i didnt push my top teeth down to my bottom teeth, it was more like an extreme achey pressure sort of pain. I continued with the garlic treatment. I placed a new piece of garlic between the outer gum and cheek with the root of the garlic facing the gum. I held it there as long as I could (it really starts to sting after a bit) for about 20 minutes. Then I boiled some water in my tea kettle and poured hot water in a cup along with 4 or five small split pieces of garlic. I let it soak for a few hours and swished it around in my mouth, especially around the area where the hole in my tooth was. I repeated this process a second time later in the day. That was yesterday. Let me just say i slept great last night. The achey pressure was tolerable and I got a good night's rest. I had a lot less pain today except when I put pressure on my teeth. It was slightly better than yesterday though, so i repeated the process. Tonight I feel great. No real pain, a teeny bit of an ache but nothing I can't handle. I'd say my pain is now a 1. I'll continue with the same treatment tomorrow too.

If you're worried about it hurting more or you're just not sure if you should try it, please try it. I was worried and waited. I wish I hadnt. This really works, so give it a try.
