I have been suffering with extreme toothache pain for the past two weeks or more and nothing was working for me not even the strongest of pain medications, well last night i tried something that a friend of mine suggested and boy did it ever work and i was able to have a decent night sleep. Last night i was in agony from a bad tooth i have and my friend told me to try massaging my hand in the area of where my thumb and first finger form form a v shape so i did and i was amazed after massaging that area on the side of where the toothache pain was ... i massaged it for about 2 minutes and it took the pain away and it lasted for hours, i tried it again this morning when i awoke and the same thing, no more pain the whole morning. Thanks to my friends advice i am suffering from no more toothache but i still have my dentist appointment booked in 2 weeks time. The massing of that area has something to do with a pressure point and nerve endings ... i hope this is of some help to anyone who has a toothache although because it worked for me doesn't mean it will work for everyone.
I have had a toothache for over two months now. If one side of my mouth did not hurt, the other side did. Sometimes, both sides hurt at once. I went to my doctor (becuase I couldn't afford to go to the dentist), and he prescribed me 800mg of Ibuprofen and 875mg of Amoxicillin. That didn't work. I went back two days later, and was prescribed 325mg of Oxycodene and 500mg of Naproxen. That helped a little. Then one night, I was in agony so bad that I got on the net and found this site. I tried the vanilla extract and a cold icepack. That put me to sleep for the night. Then the next day, I tried clove leaves, brushed my teeth with Sensodine toothpaste, rinsed with Listerine, and washed my mouth out with salt water. That seemed to work too. Then I decided to try one more thing. I went to Rite-Aid and picked up a product called Red Cross. I must say, I felt relief in an instant. It is very inexpensive, and it is a good investment.
So, for all of you who are afraid of the dentist, cant make it to one anytime soon, or who can not afford to go, please, please, please go to your nearest pharmacy and pick up some Red Cross. You will be glad that you did, I know I am!
For instant relief from Tooth ache, take fresh guava leaves and boil it with water. Then it becomes slightly cool gargle this water for 3 times. This works perfect for tooth aches.
If you have a massive toothache, get some liquid tylenol and swish it around your pain then swallow it. it takes the initial pain away, but for a short period of time, do not continue doing it. just do it to take the pain away, then see a dentist.
Use regular mouthwash like Listerine for about 2-3 mins. It numbs the pain for a short while. It works on dull or aching teeth but maybe not for moderate to severe pain.
I want to thank all of you for your help in the remidies. Well, I have a strong fobia of Dentist and have no insurance to see one if I wanted to. Well, I tried the swishing with warm salt water it comes it down quite a bit. I have the red cross and it does work wonders. You can get it by the way from Walgreens and from a store here called Freds. Also, be carefull with the BC because it can cause lots of problems with your gums. I tried denta filling in the tooth and it works for 3-5 weeks. You can get that at Krogers or Walgreens. It comes in a dental kit with something like Red Cross. I have been having this for months and it has calmed it down a great deal. Hopefully I can get the nerve to go to a dentist but now, I have no insurance and no nerve. Good Luck to all and God bless. Sweet dreams
This may sound crazy but it works for me especialy if you have a lot of tooth decay or have cracking in your teeth. I have tryed everything from ibuprophen to tyanol to canka. I am now using liquid origel maximum streangh and instead of using a Q-tip i use a flosser and I put a little on my finger and massage it into the flosser so i can get in between my teeth because I do not have the finances to see a dentist. Also using vanilla extract in this manner works as well. I also drink tea to get the pain to ease up too
I have used everything I also have gum disease but I find at night if you use a hot wet cloth and put it to your cheeks whichever side the pain is on then the pain does go away. I also bought a neck heating bag and you warm it up in the microwave for 2 minutes and lay on it while you are sleeping the pain subsided and I was able to go to sleep which helps with having a 3 year daughter
TAKE A Q-TIP AND SOME PURE VANILLA EXSTRACT AND APPLY TO THE AREA OFPAIN AND JUST RUB IT ON THE SPOT.
ok so I've been dying with tooth pain-- seriously no joke. I was ready to take pliers and pull the tooth out.
I tried the clove oil and it didn't really help and it tasted GROSS. however, vanilla seems to be working fine. Now I don't know if it's the vanilla in conjunction with the tylonel but it's helping, i think.
Just dip a q-tip in vanilla and place the q-tip on top of the tooth that's hurting and just keep it there...
