3 Comments for the Tooth Ache Pain Home Remedy


I have an extreme fear of dentists and have had a lot of dental work done in the past. Starting two days ago, I've had the most severe pain in my teeth, ear, and jaw. I know, I know, I need to get to a dentist, but until I can gain the courage, I've been resorting to home remedies.

After reading hundreds of posts, these are the options that helped me subdue the pain and swelling (some used as a combination):
- Fresh garlic clove coated with salt (BEST)
- Minced garlic/Soy Sauce on a cotton ball
- Warm salt water mix
- A heavy dose of mouthwash held on area
- 2 Ibuprofen with a mouth full of liquid Motrin
- An ice cold water bottle on the swelling

I was able to get some sleep after some and the garlic worked for many days after!

I just wanted to comment to add that I've been doing the fresh garlic clove and salt for two days now. It burns like CRAZY and is still a bit swollen currently, but it brought the pain from a 9 to a 3 and swelling from an 8 to 5. I do a warm salt water rinse right after. It helps me get through the work day and some much needed sleep.


Thank you !! Def going to try this !!


Do u chew the garlic clove on the side with the bad tooth? Or do u leave it there?
