0 Comments for the Severe Tooth Ache Home Remedy


I have been struggling with severe tooth pain and toothaches for the last month or so. I lost a filling some time ago but only recently have the aches and pains manifested themselves. this site has been a great help for me ( and my irrational fear, or rational distaste for going to the dentist )

remedies i have tried:

IBUPROFEN & TYLENOL - (separately and together) basically no effect at all. I've had luck using the two for various aches and pains throughout my entire life but they just do not cut it for the tooth pain I've been experiencing. the times I've tried it in hopes of dulling the pain i just end up with stomach aches from taking as much as i do in hopes it will have some effect.

WHOLE CLOVES - i didn't have access to ground clove or clove extract so i took some whole cloves and set them near the affected area. after being softened by my saliva i was able to bite down on them and noticed a small reduction in pain. on a scale of 1 - 10 my pain went from a 8 to 5

SWISHING WITH HEAVILY SALTED WATER - actually used this before reading some of the remedies listed on this website (used as a child for canker sores and mouth wounds). seems mildly effective from my experience. probably brought the pain down from and 8 to a 6. i believe it is mostly good for clearing food debris and etc from mouth before moving on to stronger remedies.

SWISHING WITH PEPPERMINT EXTRACT - first off, WOW this stuff BURNS. if you think liquor is rough this stuff will shock you. it brought me to tears the first time i tried it (used more than i needed) but it works fantastic - immediate pain relief that lasts for up to a couple hours for me. brought my pain from an 8 to no more than a dull ache.

CLOVES SOAKED IN PEPPERMINT EXTRACT - one day i was having it particularly rough and even straight peppermint extract (swished and placed on tooth with soaked cotton ball) was not cutting it for more than an hour. put some cloves in a bit of peppermint extract and microwaved them to expedite the process. placed them onto the effected area and let them sit for an hour. dulled the pain relatively quick and in the end reduced my pain from a 9 to about a 3. seems equally effective as regular peppermint extract but longer lasting, especially if you deal with having soggy cloves sitting in your mouth

SALT WATER & PEPPERMINT EXTRACT - this is my go-to first line of defense. when i start feeling the dull ache coming on i go mix up some salt, hot water and a teaspoon of extract. this will often take care of my pain right away if it hasn't gotten too serious yet. even if the pain is severe i do this first to clear things out and. brings the pain from a 8 down to 4.

basically what I'm getting at is; peppermint extract. it works, try it.
