I have had a toothache for a few days now and am waiting to see a dentist which I have to pay cash because I have no dental insurance. So I googled and found this site. I tried some of the remedies and they did not work for me. What did work for me was brushing my aching tooth really good then I gargled & swished with WARM SCOPE MOUTHWASH. Then I took a dose of TYLENOL AND IBUPROFIN. The combination worked well for me.
okey so this is a tempory remedy but sure to work for all. if its a cavity fill it with bread so air cant get to the nerve when you breath.and have sex yep you read it right SEX. the chemicals your brain release during sex,endorfins etc will soon make you forget the pain and if there's no girl/guy available pam and her five sisters will do fine. the longer you can go the longer you are pain free but the pain usually comes back not long after your done. so happy humping:)
Ok, some of you won't like this remedy but, I promise it will work for exposed nerves, gum pain and mouth ulcers at least until you can get to the dentist. However, getting this product will be limited to some people.
There is a product sold online and in adult stores called analese. No need for explanation for what it's supposed use.
This product has the EXACT same ingredients as orajel. However, the difference lies in the cocentration of pain killer. Analese contains almost twice of what's in orajel plus, it has a nice cherry flavor. Still doesn't taste great but, better.
I was at first skeptical but, after seeing a coworker use it and seeing many people come in the store to buy the product for toothpain alone, I had to try it on a mouth ulcer. WOW! pain gone in a couple of minutes.
So, if you have an adult store in your area (a nicely lit one, not a sleazy one)try it out for yourself.
I've tried the tea bag, mouthwash, basically any trick in the book. What I find is best to do while having a toothache is to take a slice of bread and put it on the tooth and bite down, the bread stops the air from hitting the nerve in the tooth which is where the sensitive area is.
OK,I have a tooth tht lost it's fillin' it sucked major bout 2-3 days ago a sharp pain accured come to find out the cavity the dr was supposed to have fixed is worse than ever nd has now infected the tooth nxt to it with just the tinest hole in my tooth.OOHH nd on top of all tht it's the front tooth on the left side right under my nose so when it swells it gives me a sinus headache.So when nobody could help I googled household products tht would help my tooth I found this site.
I tried everything the warm salt water,clove oil,vinlla etc...Anyways nothin wrkd so I tried the teabag thing tht helped some.
First,So I got irrataed a the pain I grabed a teabag turned the shower on as hot as I could stand.I put the teabag in my mouth for 10 mins with the hot water runnin' on my face.After tht I took the teabag out to spit nd rinse when I did blood came too.The throbing in my tooth had gonna down a bit,I switched to cold water but just let the cold run on my face and tooth for 5 mins.
Second,as soon as I was outta the shower nd stuff I rinsed my mouth with noniodized salt.I did this repeatedly for 20 mins.Then I rinsed my mouth out with Listerinefor 5 mins.
Third,I got tht hurricane medicine nd put it all around the area.
WIthin 10-15 mins my pain was gone.Tomorrow I get to spend most of the day callin dentists so i can make a appoinment.
Thank you all for your remedies, it's been a great help for me over the past month!
I'm submitting because I wanted others to know that for different variants of pain, different remedies worked for me. We all know how horrible tooth pain is, & I found at its worst, tea or cloves didnt work. Tea worked when it seemed annoyingly painful. But when past that point that felt like I was going to pass out from the pain, I found a clove oil and ibuprofen with codeine worked really well. The ibuprofen takes about 30mins to kick in, so the clove oil was good to slightly numb the area whilst your body digests the ibuprofen.
I can't see the dentist til this coming monday, so I have to stay on the drugs until then!
Thanks again everyone, I love websites like this! It's a massive help!

I have been bothered with tooth pain for the past month. Some days worse than others. Surprising, the endos doesn't see anything wrong with the tooth/teeth. Tapping, biting down, xrays, electricity, ice, heat ... no pain in the doctor's office. However, through the course of the day the pain comes and goes, radiating up the face, in the eye socket, and nose. This is making the endo think that it is really a sinus or nerve problem. My brother suggested I take Claritin-D just in case it was the sinus. I did take Sudafed, with some relief but today the pain was starting to act up. This pain actually radiates down the arm. Initially, I thought it was my heart because I read that if you're having problems in your mouth/teeth and no obvious problem it 'could' be a cardiovascular problem. My cardio doctor said no. Actually, I think my problem is a fracture that is not showing up on the xray in either the last or tooth in front.
I went to this site and read through all of the wonderful remedies and could read the desperation in the responses. Believe me, hurting teeth is the worse pain and I have had my share of pain.
What seems to be working for me ... the tea bag remedy. I wetted a tea bag and put it on the last two teeth ... also immediate release! I actually feel human again.
Right now I am trying to take it one minute at a time. Feels good so far and I should be able to get some sleep tonight. Tomorrow is another day ...
A few last words ... I am in more pain when I read that there are people out there who can't afford basic health care and are suffering because of it. My heart goes out to all of you.
Chew a stick of cinnamon gum, then 'pack' it around the sore area, or up on the gums above the toothache. It burns a bit, depending on sensetivity of your teeth, but it also numbs the tooth.
Dry tea bag. I totally swear by this. Tonight I was in pain every 5 minutes from a bad tooth ache. Too early to take more meds. The only thing that was working was gargling with mouthwash every 5 min. But the pain kept coming back. Then I remembered I read the home remedies for tooth ache mentioned tea bags. One said use a dry tea bag. I had previously tried a warm wet one. The dry one worked much better. A minute after I had placed it in my mouth and wrapped it around the tooth and gums that was hurting, the pain subsided. I kept it in for 15 minutes with NO PAIN. After I removed it, I had no pain either and it's going on a half hour. One thing I noticed, when I kept spitting out the wet tea, was a couple of tiny drops of blood. I believe the tea bag pulled that out. I was thinking why do tea bags work? It must draw out the infection I thought. I looked it up and sure enough, I found an article that said it does just that. You can use it on cold sores as well and other minor injuries. It's been four hours since I last took meds (advil and tylenol) and I am in no pain. This is a miracle!
