448 Home Remedies for Tooth Ache


I have 2 remedies. The first is IF cold water works for you, Keep sipping and swishing etc for about an hour to an hour and a half but don't drink it. I done this and ended up poisoning myself, drinking too much water! Anyway, so do it for an hour then STOP completely. You're going to want to keep swishing but please don't. It will be painful, I won't lie, for up to 20 minutes. It'll be so painful you might even cry. But within 30 minutes, usually about 15-20, it'll be bearable or even gone completely. I was sipping water for about 5 hours, no lie until I stumbled upon that tip and I was so skeptical and crying in pain for 20 minutes but it disappeared. I'm not guaranteeing it'll work but usually for people who the cold water helps, it does work. The second tip is the accupressure that also worked the first time on me.


Position the tip of a finger in front of your ear hole. Open your jaw and and feel for a gap that forms. Press the point inside that gap. Do this carefully. You will feel a tingling sensation in your jaw. This partially paralyzes the nerves causing you so much pain from your toothache.


Reposition your finger directly under your ear where it meets your head. It should be in the gap behind your ear lobe. When you open your jaw the gap will get bigger. Press the point inside the gap. You will feel a numbing sensation in your ear and side of your head.


Trace a line down and around your jaw bone. Stop when you are directly under the outside corner of your eye. Press the point on the inside edge of your jaw bone. Press upward and outward toward your jaw bone. This will make much of your mouth go numb.


Move your finger up to your cheek bone. Feel along the underside of the cheek bone until you reach a point directly under your eye ball when it is looking forward. Press the point upward and inward toward your cheek bone. Much of your face will go numb including your upper jaw.


Leave your head completely and find your Achilles tendon. It is the ridge that connects your calf and heel. Press the points on both side of the middle of your Achilles tendon. Do this in the indention between the ridge and the bone that sticks out in your ankle. This pressure point forces your body to divert attention away from your toothache.
After doing that, if the above hasn't worked or worked a little and you want more relief, rub an ice cube on the join between the first finger and thumb. I didn't have any ice so I run a cold tap and held my hand under it for a while, about 6 inches from tap and it worked. I done all of the above in one night because even though stopping the cold water helped, it was still unbearable. Like I said, I'm not guaranteeing it will work but it can't help to try surely.


Pure lemon extract... Burns like hell but the pain is gone

Very cold water.
When I had a sensitive tooth ache, I swished very cold water on it, this increased the toothache and my aim was to increase it till the pain was really unbearable. I then kept the ice water there for as long as possible till I couldn't stand the pain no more.
This got rid of the toothache.
Why this would be I don't to now for sure. Maybe it overloads the nerve with pain.


Was here about yr ago. Due to a massive pain on one of my cavs, which the filling has fallen out. Anyways none of the remedies here seem to work, but for some reason, tried washing out with ice cold water and with natural lime and that worked for short period. Thought I'd come back and post that.

Btw I went back to the UK to visit my family for the holis. And saw my familys doc to get the tooth fixed and was told by the doc that when a cavity/tooth is in pain it mostly has to do with an infection.
Sadly, I was given Amoxicillin pills since he wouldn't work on the cavity when I was in pain due to making the infection worse. (I say sadly because I had to leave before I could get it fixed there,they don't charge for doc services.)

Anyways hope this helps someone out there.


1- Rinse with warm salt water.
2-Dip a q-tip in rubbing alcohol then rub around bad tooth and spit out.
3-Dip a new q-tip in 100% pure vanilla extract then rub around bad tooth and spit out.
The pain went away instantly for me for sometimes 24 hours.
Also can rub Vick's Vapor Rub on jaw/face that covers bad tooth.
I swear by this home remedy for toothaches. I get calls from friends for this remedy when they or their family or friends have a toothache. It works for them as well! =o}

After trying everything from painkillers to drinking alcohol to numb the pain I came on here and read some remedies, so I tried the warm water with salt remedy, use it as a mouth wash and then spit out, it works great, I still feel the throbbing but the pain went from a 10 to a 3!! Thanks guys hope yous all find awa to get rid of the pain because I feel your pain! Toothache is the worse


I had a bad tooth in my mouth for a while but it only hurts sometimes. When it does I swish with saltwater hot as I can stand on the affected tooth. Then I put a teabag folded in half on the abcessed tooth until it drains... going to the dentist soon


I was up with a toothache last night all night. Horrible, throbbing, crying type pain. Nothing worked, I tried everything on here that I was able too. (I made a dentist apt for tmw morning) I just went to the dollar store and got some extra strength tylenol and Colgate mouthwash. I kid you not a few minutes after swishing the mouthwash the pain was almost gone, and now an hour later it's basically all gone. I've used salt in the past and it worked for mild pain, but this was sooooo much worse and the salt had no effect this run around. I don't know if this will work for everyone, but it worked for me. Hope this helps someone.


i used vanilla extract and it works instantly!!!! :)


One remedy that works best for me is mixing salt and toothpaste together then getting a q-tip and applying it on the painful tooth. I would also insert a cotton ball, so I could close my mouth. It's optional and it may or may not work for some of you but it's definitely a good home remedy for me!
