I searched internet for home remedy for tooth abscess and came upon this site. What a relief! Several posts mentioned good ole peroxide which is a staple in my home. So here's my two cents. Swish mouthful (normal amount used for mouthwash) full strength generic hydrogen peroxide for ten minutes 3 times did the trick for me! First 10 mins. rinse I noticed pain relief. Second 10 mins. rinse, swelling relief. Third 10 mins. rinse, I was completely relieved of pain and swelling AND SENSE OF TASTE temporarily. A bit extreme to say the least, but worth getting rid of mind numbing pain and chipmunk cheek. This method kept misery at bay until my dentist appointment four days later. I hope this helps you too.
