43 Comments for the Tooth Ache Pain Home Remedy


I was in such agony last night from my back wisdom tooth, I couldn't sit still! I came online to look up ANYTHING to help me. I saw a couple of entries for Vanilla Extract, so thought what the hell! I ran to cupboard, scrambled to find it and I first poured a capful and swished it around my back tooth. Then I swabbed it with the extract to make sure it was ON tooth. All I can say is WOW. It cut my pain down about 80%! I took 3 ibuprofen too, and I was finally able to go to sleep and feel like I was in control again.
Thank you to those who write these remedies down. This was a life saver for me.

This did nothing at all for me :(. Like someone else said - it did infact just add throbbing pain to the mix of things.


I think the really strong, warm salt water is the first choice, because it is actually fixing something, while the vanilla is just numbing. The strong saline solution helps kill the bacteria, but you have to keep doing it until your mouth feels raw. DON'T make my mistake and use cold water - it should just be room temp.


all i can say is thanks and good night


Thank you it worked for 10 minutes,but 10 minutes is better than nothing.


OMG THANK YOU!!! I've had the same tooth ache for months and due to money crisis i have not been able to fix it, so i decided to hide it from my family to keep the drama down, and recently its gotten worse. You are the BeST SAINT EVER for this. I swished just a tad and the pain was gone in seconds THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU etc.




i totally just tried this, i was desperate for ANYTHING! i wanted to pull all of my hair out of my head bc this damn wisdom tooth hurt so bad, and the vanilla extract actually relieved it for now.


I was worried, when I looked in my cupboard, I only had imitation vanilla extract, but to my great relief, even that worked wonders!!! Thank you so much!!!


I'm thinking I can get to sleep now...It's only 2 am!! I thought I had heard this tip somewhere else before but wasnt sure...I guess I should have known though, seeing as how I used to be a dental assistant at one point LOL!


I am waiting for a root canal on a molar which is scheduled in 3 days. After eating something really cold tonite my entire jaw line was throbbing so badly that it hurt all the way to my ear. I took some ibuprofen, and came to this site. After swishing with the vanilla extract I can really tell a difference. Thanks for the suggestion!
