Tea bag!!! Really did help. I have been in pain for 5 days now. I have tried Ibuprofen, Orajel, Anbesol, Hydrocodone, Vanilla Extract, Mouthwash, Warm compresses, and placing this tea bag between my cheek and tooth has relieved my pain from a 10 to a 1. It's easy too. I ran out of Lipton but i had Jasmine tea bags and it seemes to be working great, but it is only temporary. I am still surfing the web for the best solution aside from going to the Dentist which is what I should have done already but with 4 growing children I have to wait. Try it though. I have had this tea bag in my mouth for an hour now and it is still working.

I don't have the money to get to a dentist right now and I'm starting to get an abscess on one of my left side molars. I put a green tea bag in between my tooth and my cheek and the pain has gone from a 8 to a 1! I just hope it draws out the infection so I don't have to deal with this anymore!

5 hours before I'm supposed to get on a plane and the lump and pain in my gum is pretty intense. Saw an emergency dentist yesterday who gave me strong antibiotics. Swished mouth out last night with rock salt hot water and now 4am and I wake up with this lump on gum. Normal teabag been in 5 minutes . So here's hoping it draws the crap out. Cancelled flight though 😢


Trying it Now!


So i looked and looked and there were so many options i decided to try a littke experiment. So many had successes and failures with one method or another .. So i combined several. I took minced garlic garlic powder parsley flakes oregano leaves basil leaves ground clove ground cumin and the insides of a used tea bag along with a few drops of homey just to hold it all together i cut the top off a tea bag and emptied it.. Cut the string in half tied off one end and filled it tied offnthe other end and applied it to the abscess and nearly instant realief.. I checked it a few minutes later and a small head had formed its already starting to drain .. Slowly so far but the pressure is already reduced bt 1/3 in minutes


My jaw was swollen to the size of a golfball, i couldnt see a dentist for two weeks. My sister( who is a dental assistant) told me to use a black tea bag. I left it in for 30 minutes and my swelling was completely gone. Thank god! No pain and no swelling!


I have been using a teabag against my tooth now for almost 24 hours and the pain is just getting worse and worse. At first it got better but then I woke up at 3am in extreme pain when before I used the teabag it was only an annoying kind of pain. What should I do?? Is it hurting because im pissing it off or is it hurting because its working?? Please help. Thanks.

Main pain was gone in 20/30 minutes and was feeling much better after 90 minutes with tea bag in place. The pain is gone but my gum is sore. That I can deal with. All is well in just under 2 hours and I'm enjoying a movie, just started. I might fall asleep in the chair before it ends. Feeling much better.


I'm super stressed its my 2nd day with an abscess forming my matric dance is on the 8th I get back in the country on the 7th of April. I can't afford for this to go bad for me trying it tomorrow will keep you updated


My sister wants to know if you get it wet first?


Well I have an infected tooth. And my jaw has swollen because of this. I am in a lot of pain and the swelling is bothering me. I have tried the salt water trick. And I have put two tea bags on the tooth for a half hour at a time. And so far, nothing. I keep hearing the tea bag does wonders but it has been swollen for a few days now and still nothing. I just tried the tea bag trick earlier.
