Hi everyone. I have an abscessed tooth, and I was browsing the net trying desperately to find something to take the pain away. My dentist gave me Vicodin, but that just makes me goofy! I've heard plenty of things; coffee beans, tea bags, garlic, onion, and more. Just like all of you, I'm sure, I don't want to try anything that will harm my teeth. I sucked on a coffee bean, and that helped a little bit. I didn't have any garlic cloves, so I rubbed garlic powder on my gums. It irritated it ( As expected =P ) but it helped.. While it was on, at least. Red wine vinegar helped me a lot. But the thing that works best for me is drinking ICE COLD water, holding it my mouth for a few seconds before swallowing. It numbs me for about a minute and a half if I don't speak. Not much help, sorry! I wish you all good luck!!
