My boyfriend was in so much pain from a toothache he was literally ready to take some pliers and pull the tooth out himself. I then started looking up ideas on how to help him. I came across this site and started reading. What helped him the best was to suck on cough drops on the side that hurt. It really worked! Hope this helps someone else.
I have a horrible toothache and i've tried just about anything, Warm salt water does nothing, I have chewed on garlic and onions at 3 o'clock in the morning and that has done nothing for me. I have just tried cloves and this has done wonders for me.Put cloves in a zip lock bag and crush. when the cloves are crushed fill your cavity with the crushed cloves. This will numb your tooth. This has worked extremely well , I hope it does wonders for you also.
BEEN FIGHTING 2 BAD TEETH THAT NEED ROOT CANALS FOR LAST 4 WEEKS. TONIGHT PAIN IS WORSE THAN EVER , ID GO A 8 OUT OF 10. GOT ON THIS SITE AND SAW THE GARLIC TRICK.....HAD A WHOLE ONE IN THE PANTRY, CUT A PIECE OFF AND HOPED FOR THE BEST....BIT DOWN ON IT FOR 5 MINUTES AND NO DIFFERENT...THEN SPIT IT OUT AND RINSED WITH PLAIN WARM WATER A FEW TIMES, THAT DID THE TRICK!! IM DOWN TO ABOUT A 2-3 NOW...WAY MORE BEARABLE, HAD TO POST THIS ....
i once had an exposed nerve,could'nt drink hot or cold,so no medecines or mouthwash etc,i tried lots of different suggestions,but the pain was too much,so as a last resort i covered the tooth with superglue until the dentist had an apppointment for me,it worked well,and made the dentist laugh with my solution to pain
I've had tooth pain for ages and have gone to the dentist and they gave me antibiotics which worked until they ran out, the dentist are useless as I wanted it pulled but they seem to think that there was nothing wrong, so for ages and ages I've live with this pain, sensitive toothpaste helps but it only comes but after a while then I found the solution milk, a glass of cold milk at least a pint a day works wonders I don't feel any pain anymore it's amazing but I have to keep drinking milk everyday.
So I always come on these sites looking for something new that will help this agonizing pain. Sometimes just taking some aspirin and reading the posts help but tonight nothing was working so I tried warm salt water and lightly chewing on fresh garlic. It immediately helped. I don't know exactly what's causing my pain just that it's my molar on top and I'm a poor college student who can't afford to go to the dentist. Hope this helps someone.
It is 4:40. I have been up for 3 hours now with terrible pain. I am terribly afraid of the dentist and don't want to go. I have tried flossing, salt water, brushing, mouthwash, lots and lots of ibuprofen, coconut oil, and just dealing with the pain. I have had this pain for about 3 days now.Nothing worked. I came here and read about all the more common stuff. What worked for me is just sucking on a cough drop (I'm sucking on a Kroger brand honey lemon flavored). I am already seeing such amazing results. This is the one thing that has really helped. I would recommend brushing your teeth first, swishing warm salt water(to disinfect), and then swishing mouthwash after that(to get that odd taste out of your mouth). Then suck on the cough drop on the sore side of your mouth. In going to bed now :) Another thing is ask the LORD for help if you are a child of Christ. He sure knows how to make yah feel better :)
dont know exactly which helped so ill write both. i used oral gel and it did not work.
i brewed chamomile tea and added 2 shots of brandy. my pain started going away. then i read this page and got the garlic idea. i took a whole clove crushed it up grabbed a piece and shoved it on my tooth. pain gone.
and i was literally in tears before doing this.
tooth ache on an old tooth canal tooth. the crown came off about 3 years ago but a tooth 'shaped' filling was left behind. it started bothering me today and i put ground cloves from my spice cabinet in some vanilla extract and applied it with a cotton swab. its helping alot. i also took 4 2oomg advils but that only brought the pain down a little. i will reapply the ccloves vanilla mix again and rinse with it too later. seems to work pretty good.
Use plain Red Wine Vinegar on your tooth,will hurt but kills the pain asap
