Hey guys! Just wanted to add my 2 cents. After spending all day in excruciating pain, I found this website. I read through and saw all of the remedies, and I tried most. I tried gargling vanilla extract - didn't work. I tried ice cold water - it worked for literally 3 seconds and the pain came back worse than ever. I got no sleep at all, which was the worst part, because I LOVE my sleep. So, after being curled in a fetal position, I finally decided to go to the dentist first thing this morning. This was no easy decision, because I am a self-employed web designer with no insurance and I knew that going to the dentist was going to be quite expensive. I ended up going and they took x-rays and it was discovered that my wisdom tooth is coming in, but it was broken and infected - YUCK! So, no amount of remedies would have helped me out in that situation. The whole left side of my face and neck was swollen and the pain was unbearable. The dentist prescribed antibiotics, pain meds, and steroids to reduce the swelling. I'm on my second dose for the day and I must say - I feel so much better! The best part is that I explained my situation to the dentist and he saw me at a reduced cost. I said all of that to say, if anyone out there is in that type of pain, it can't hurt to at least try to talk to your dentist and see what they can do for you - it worked for me.
OK your reading this as your very desperate and in extreme agony, first thing let me tell you I know what it feels like, its the worst pain you're likely to ever have. OK so here is what works for me, First if you can brush your teeth with sensodyne swill mouth. with saltwater at body temp then get some TCP anti septic liquid and mix it 50/50 with warm water try to get the water at body temp so as not to create a nasty shock in your mouth. then gargle TCP mixture round mouth try holding it over bad tooth for 5 mins or longer taste like**** . Next get a clove of garlic peeled then take a knife and score ONE side of garlic lenthways so as to release the oils place the garlic in mouth with scored side touching offending gum/tooth. The other side will be touching lip mouth and is not scored so won't burn mouth but may burn gum. don't worry as burning is not so bad and is a good sign its working its magic. Leave for as long as possible wedged between gum and mouth. as your doing this take another 2 garlic cloves and crush/mash with salt, aspirin, sensodyne tooth paste, make into a rough paste next apply paste mix to small cotton swab with a good thick layer, then apply or if you can fill hole with some of the garlic mix, then place swab with mixture over bad area or wedge between gum and mouth try and leave in place for 30 mins or longer.
Also try to fill ALL gaps in between and in offending tooth with cotton wool soaked in clove oil.
This worked for me it took my pain from 10 to 2
Painkillers do NOT work at any strenth the pain is too severe Best and only cure is dentist teeth are NOT self healing they 100% get worse. hope this works for you good luck.
Was literally crying from tooth pain while working at the hospital. ER placed a nerve block and gave me hydrocodone. Still crying with pain. Picked up some of the Red Cross toothache medicine, oragel, and sensodyne. Using all three of these with warm salt water rinses every few hours seems to be helping.
tried gargling with warm water and salt but it just made the pain worse so I startes chewing fresh garlic clove from the kitch and it worked!! you should try this guys.
TOOTHACHES ARE THE WORST
y vet put me onto this. chlorophyl,liquid, from the health food store, I put my gum in it and kept chewin, or diip your toothbrush in it. Or any method to get it into your mouth. tastes like lettuce. No drugs, just who knows what, but it works. It will stain, very green.Keep treating. Pretty soon pain free. Love it.
Disolve ibuprofen on a bowl then get your finger and get some of the desolved ibuprofen on it and then rub on the affected area it should get ride of the pain but even if the pain stops i recomend for you to go see a dentist
Salt water always wrks for me bt if u get a damp rag and put it in the microwave for two mins n immediately put it on where it hurts.....once or twice should do it...hours of relief....
i take bobby pin a remove any thing i see that might be the prob. and then i take some vanilla extract and put it on my tooth and all the pain goes away
York peppermint patties work for me every time I have a toothache. No joke. Very fast relief.
Try finger nail polish for a tooth acke dry your tooth and dab a little on your tooth where you feel the pain from let it dry as much as you can it only last on your tooth maybe a few hours but it will help with the pain some
