Cayenne Pepper and Apple Cider Vinegar the perfect marriage of pain management.
I had a toothache from hell after Christmas and nothing was working except multiple ibuprofen doses. I would take 4 pills (2 liquid and 2 coated--that formula worked wonders but only for 4 hours). I didn't want to overdose from the pills because I get stomach bleeding and ulcers. I don't have dental insurance and I have always prefered natural cures...I went on every home remedy site and tried everything. Most things would work work for a little bit and then never again after (garlic, tea bags, mouthwash, ice packs, clove oil, almond extract, cinnamon and honey paste). The last on my list to try was cayenne pepper and Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV). Here's my magical cure: First I brushed my teeth really good with a sensitive toothpaste. Next I swished the ACV around in my mouth as a mouthwash for a good minute and spit out. The pain immediately lessed greatly with just the ACV!! But I wanted to step it up a notch... I then took a cotton swab dipped it in acv and then dipped it in the cayenne pepper. I probed the cotton swab full of cayenne pepper in the hole in my tooth. Next I would redip it in the ACV and remove the tip of the cotton swap and pack it into the hole in my tooth. So basically my tooth's hole was filled with cayenne pepper then on top of that was the residual cayenne pepper and ACV that was left on the cotton swap. I did this procedure 2-3 times a day and still supplimented with the ibuprofen (but I only had to take it twice a day after my first application instead of 6 times a day). I would always leave the cotton swab tip in the hole until my next application....this enabled me to eat and drink without worrying about something getting down in the hole. It's now 2 days later and my mouth and jaw are no longer sore and no pain at all!! I haven't had to take Ibuprofen in 48 hours!! Trust me when I say I have tried everything listed here and other websites before and this is the only thing that has stopped the pain. I really hope this helps someone else.
