After trying several remidies on the board here, I found several that helped, but when I tried to lay down to sleep the pain would return. So my addition to my fellow Pain driven insomniacs is.... get the pain under control and then find a comfy chair and sleep sitting up, I did that last night and had more sleep than I have in the past week.
My whole left side of my mouth felt like it was broken from a toothache I had. Like most, I found this site in the middle of the night desperately searching for a remedy just to get to sleep. After trying tea bags, salt water, and vanilla and not getting any relief, I tried putting icy hot outside on my cheek where it hurt. This got me to sleep for about an hour, which I was VERY grateful for. The next day I went to Walgreens and got the Red Cross toothache relief and the toothache gum. The red cross soothed it for about a minute, but the gum was a gift from God. Thank you for the help.
I saw that most of the people posting in this were people without dental coverage. I was at my wits end with the toothache as it kept coming back. I don't have dental either, but I called 800 dentist and found a dentist willing to take payments. Definitely worth it.
Tooth pain seems to come only on the weekends! Had severe pain starting on Sat.; by Sun. afternoon desperately searching for relief. Read about using tea bag on the abcess. Never heard of this but sounded harmless. Was amazed that within an hr. of doing this, the abcess had 'burst', drained and I was pain free! Maybe just a coincidence but I'm happy to be pain free. Used 'green' tea bag. My sympathy to all with mouth/tooth pain.
Okay so my tooth is completely cracked, broken to the gum line! So um yea it hurts like heck! I have tried vodka, vannila, ice, hand massage, ect. This is what works for me, almond extract applied with a q-tip directly on the site. Prior to the almond extract use a warm salt water swish, an entire cup. Follow that up with two tylenol and I have been pain free for the last two hours!! Hope this helps! Good luck!
If your tooth hurts go to the dentist.
until you can see him use ALIEVE not advil Alieve trust me it works in 8 min.
but don't think its fixed and eat because it will hurt all over again.
try it or your money back!
It is is a 3 strep process that has helped me significantly (with most of my tooth-ache 95% throughout the pain the past few days in my lower 2 molars that started when the nerve was exposed due to the two teeth partially breaking off and exposing the nerve partially:
1) Take a tablespoon of high alcohol content (80+ Proof, but cheap) bourbon, vodka or whiskey, gargle/swoosh that in and around the effected are for 1 minute, swoosh it through the areas infected (like molar and lower gum all same side) Then spit out.
2)Wait one minute
3) Take a small, finger-hut. Des-infect the finger-hut by wiping high grade alcohol (80 proof minimum!)
Create in that small finger-hut bowl a *paste*: consisting of:
small amount (1/2 teaspoon) of sensodyne (pro enamel),
2 parts coarse or fine sea salt,
1/2 part hot water,
1/2 part white Vinegar (I use rice wine vinegar.
Mix this up good and use a Qtip to get some of the paste out onto it.
Then take a liquid ibuprofec capsule, cut the tip off and sqeuuze some of the liquid ibuprofen on the q-tip tht is by now convered in the paste
4) Push that Qtip that is soaked in the paste and liquid ibuprofen and push it into the area of where the tooth is (rub along the gum, insert into hole/broken fillings, until is looks nice and packed.
5) Take some regular liqui-caps ibuprofen, swallow them with water, not not enough to wash the paste away tho!
6) For the last part, wet a small towel and stick it in the Microwave for 45sec to a min (depending on how high Wattage your nuke is)
7) Lie down, small, HOT towel between your pillow and the affected tooth area and give it a few minutes.
When you wake up, take immediately 2 IBUPROFEN and repeat the steps above and you will be good for at least the hole day
Ok this is no joke .... If you are in pain, follow me. I have always had problems with my teeth
since I was little.
I want you to know, what I did worked for me. First and foremost, there is a company that sells a
product called 'Hurricaine'. It is about 10 times better than Oragel. I bought about 5 jars;
they are $15 a jar. I found them on Amazon. They have many flavors but cherry is my favorite.
Ok, lets say you don't have the time to wait for shipping and all that you want is relief now. I
have killed the nerve on about 10 different teeth on 10 occasions, no lie. Kill the nerve and the
pain will end. GO TO YOUR LIQUOR STORE AND BUY Bacardi 151; IF DONE RIGHT IT WILL KILL THE NERVE.
A) SORE TOOTH ON THE BOTTOM OF YOUR MOUTH: You can do one of two things. 1) Fill a cup with some
Bacardi 151 and hold it on the problem tooth (OR SEE PART B regarding the eye dropper). Count as
long as you can stand (DONT DRINK ANY! IT WILL BURN YOUR THROAT AND CHEST BADLY!). Now spit and
repeat (this will dry your mouth and burn your tongue the first time). However, don't drink any
fluids (i.e. water, soda, etc.)! Just hold your head over a sink and wait. You will drool a lot.
As soon as you can, do it again. You will notice it's not that bad the second time around versus
the first. Try again--if done right, you will feel a small pop or hear a slight fizz and the pain
is gone. Once this happens, you will notice the pain is gone for good after the 151 wears off.
This can also be done just to aleviate pain as well, but it won't last a very long time.
B) SORE TOOTH ON TOP OF YOUR MOUTH: GO TO YOUR LIQUOR STORE AND BUY Bacardi 151. This can be done
if the tooth is on the top or bottom; however we are focusing on the top of your mouth. Go buy an
eye dropper. Lay on your couch or floor with a pillow for neck support. You have to try to
position your head upside down as though you were dripping onto the bottom tooth. Open mouth and
start dripping onto problem tooth. DON'T JUST DRIP ONE OR TWO DROPS. CONTINUE TO DRIP, allowing a
continuous flow of drops to hit in the exposed area. Think of it as a rainfall--steady drops of
rain no less than 1 second apart. After the dropper is empty, SPIT AND REFILL. Continue until you
kill the nerve.
I HOPE THIS HELPS YOU ALL. THERE IS NOTHING WORSE THAN A BAD TOOTH ACHE THAT JUST WON'T SHUT UP.
When you can SEEK DENTAL HELP, DO SO. THIS IS NOT A FIX FOR THE PROBLEM, JUST THE PAIN.

I just tried this and it is working. I put warm water on an mint herbal tea bag and then sprinkled salt on both sides. I put it next to the tooth and gums and it is very soothing.
It tingles a bit from the mint which actually feels good. Beats the pain. I wish you well, as this tooth pain is hell!
I have tried everything for a tooth ache garlic, liquer, temp. filling, warm salt water evrything nothing seem to work. Then one day a friend told me to take one of my wifes midol even though i was worried at first i did. I had been up for 3 days. Then after 30 minutes of taking the midol it was gone. It stayed gone for 3 days
