I have had intense tooth ache problems for a couple of months now - no dental insurance. I have tried Advil, Aleve, Tylenol, aspirin, and even some strong prescription pain relievers that did very little - only dulled the pain. I also tried my WaterPic, hydrogen peroxide and Orajel with no success. Purely by accident, I found that by swishing about 1 tsp of Robitussin DM -yes cough medicine -(I actually use WalMart's Equate brand 'Tussin DM' - much cheaper)in the area causing the pain, it diminishes the pain immediately, and the pain is gone within a couple more minutes. I do not know how or why it works but it does. The relief lasts 2 to 3+ hours. It is not a long-term solution but it will at least get you to a point where you are able to function.
I HAD SEVERE TOOTH PAIN ON THE LEFT TOP SIDE AND ALSO THE BOTTOM I COULD NOT STAND THE PAIN OUT OF DESPERATION I FLOSSED AND BRUSHED MY TEETH THEN I
TOOK 5 ALFALFA TABLETS THAT I BOUGHT AT WALMART AND I ALSO TOOK 5 ECHINACEA CAPSULES THAT I ALSO BOUGHT AT WALMART ALONG WITH A LARGE GLASS OF WATER. I WAITED 15 MINUTES AND TOOK A GLASS A WATER AND I SQUEEZED THE JUICE OF ONE LEMON AND I ADDED A TINY BIT OF BAKING SODA 1/4 OF A TEASPOON STIRED IT AND DRANKED IT. IN A MATTER OF MINUTES THE PAIN DISAPEARED. I DO THIS EVERY TIME I START FEELING PAIN COMMING ON. THIS IS A REALLY GREAT REMEDY I RECOMMEND IT TO ALL THOSE PEOPLE LIKE ME WHO HAVE NO DENTAL INSURANCE AND SUFFER TOOTH PAIN. ALSO RESEARCH ON THE COMPUTER.... WHO TO HEAL CAVITYS NATURALLY. HOPE THIS WORKS FOR MANY DENTAL SUFFERERS OUTTHERE.
For an annoying cavity before I could get to a dentist the following things worked.
1. Use a pin to poke a hole in a liquid neproxin capsule...use a toothpick to apply locally.
2. also, use an anti canker sore type medicine...blistek has one based on benzocain...
Hello everyone! I have a lot of bad broKen teeth a lot of missing fillings,I heard about oil pulling and was afraid to try it because of all the holes and broken teeth but I had a.severe toothache it hurt so bad yes worse than my 4 childbirths so I was desperate and tried oil pulling with organic coconut oil, if you look up oil pulling you will find more info on how it works! After I swished the oil around for 20 min I rinsed with salt water and then brushed my teeth and the pain was gone until I ate anything or if anything came in contact with the tooth so I bought some orbit gum peppermint it is sugar free and is made to help keep your teeth clean so I chewed it first on the side that didn't hurt then pushed it against my gums by the teeth that were hurting then finally pushed it into the holes with my tongue and just left it there and no pain at all. After I took it out it didn't hurt anymore for days I do oil pulling every morning and if I get any pain I use the orbit gum and it's amazing how well it works and it works every time. If the pain does not stop instantly from the gum just tilt forward and rub the side of your jaw for a few min. give it some time to work it had worked perfectly for me every time!!! Good luck!
I have a broken wisdom tooth that get s really nasty when I'm run down... and until I can wrangle enough cash to get it fixed, it's just damage control when it flares up. My usual arsenal of brushing whatever's ticking it off, followed by oil-pulling with coconut oil wasn't even making a dent--pain right in the jaw (which means I need to get it sorted sooner rather than later, I know!). So plan C. Cotton ball with straight clove oil jammed along the joint and gum line... 10 minutes and my whole freekin' cheek is numb--but at least it's not screaming anymore! Hope this helps if some you have clove oil around (it's like the stuff the dentist puts on your gum before giving you a needle)... it also has killed my sore throat (which is probably what's running me down!).
my own home made toothpaste (mostly bakingsoda and coconut oil)
I've had really bad tooth pain for the past two days now going into the third day. I took motrin 800 and it helped for the first day bit hardly touched the pain. I found that warm salt water rinses along with peroxide helped. I also used a tea bag on the area for about 15 mins and held the warm mug of tea to my face. It brought the pain down a bit and it's lost that pulsating feeling. I tried a garlic clove, rubbing alcohol on a q tip, sensitive tooth paste on the tooth and nothing really helped except what I mentioned. Hopefully I can see the dentist soon when his office is open in a couple of days.
lost a filling in rear mouler after a month or so it became so painful even trying to drink tap water the pain would travel right through my head and scull.
best result I found was cepacaine oral solution you get it from the chemist approx. $17 bottle 200ml its bright green liquid. its for mouth and throat and is an instant anaesthetic don't swallow it just have a sip an swirl it on your tooth for 30 secs and spit it out don't rinse your mouth with water that just washes it off. then take a couple of nurofen plus that you can only get at the chemist. trust me the cepacaine works very well but you will feel a bit numb in mouth on your tongue etc has a nice mint taste.
don't confuse cepacol with cepacaine
not the same thing but look similar cepecol is just a mouth gargle was dose'nt have the anaesthetic.
I have tried pretty much everything posted on here already and nothing on here works for more then 30 minutes if you are lucky. But I did find 1 thing that works and it give instant relief CLOVE OIL I have 2 teeth that cracked and this happened last week. I went to the er and was given morphine then then doctor told me to go to the health food store and get clove oil and put 1 drop on the tooth with a q tip do I did and here I am 3 days layer with ZERO PAIN.
OK internet full of 'FRENCH MODELS'-but 1st time in a week that PAIN was MANAGEABLE - Garlic for a full hour now - WORKING - cant get to Dentist til Monday - problem started previous Sunday - got some hiccups - and smell a LOT like GARLIC - but so far - ITS WORKING - will post again later to update
Ive had this really bad toothache for a while now. Ive tried red cross, peroxide, and salt water...nothing worked. I came on this site to see if there were any more remedies that might work and i decided to try salt. Just pack a little bit of salt on or in your tooth....instant relief...i also just took a tylenol (just in case)
