135 Home Remedies for Tooth with Exposed Nerve


i've tried everything, literally. but only one thing worked, and i wanted to share my story.

last night, i went to bed around midnight and at 1:08am [weird how you remember the exact time when it's something like this that wakes you up, right?] and i felt a pain like i've never had before. the dreaded toothache. i am not a hillbilly or poor person, bum, you name it - but my tooth all the way in the back cracked several months ago and to be honest, it's not given me issues so i just let it sit. there's a huge hole on the top of my tooth, to the point where almost the entire top of my tooth is gone, exposing what i am guessing is the 'pulp' of the tooth as well as nerves. anyway, on to the good stuff.

i tried everything that this site said as well as what other sites said to do, and nothing worked. then i came across someone's post where they said to eat something ON THE SIDE OF THE HURTING TOOTH [screech] and cover the hole up with the food. i did this, but it STILL hurt. in fact, it hurt so much more worse that i sucked hard instead of getting something to get the food out with and guess what? IT DID THE TRICK. sucking that hard sent a SHOCK through my entire body just about but immediately after that, the pain was gone. there was a little bleeding but nothing bad, only lasted a literal second or two. i'm assuming it was a clot or blood built up that needed to get 'let out' for the relief i was looking for.

now, i need to try and sleep. but please let me know if this worked for any of you.


thought i would throw this one out there..I have a broken molar with exposed nerve..tried all home remedies and I was about to beat my head against the wall,then it dawned on me..we have teething tablets for our infant.and liquid Motrin as well. dissolved one tablet on the tooth,followed by a drop or 2 of Motrin..first honest releif I had..hope this helps someone in need.(teething tablets I buy at any major Grocery store.sometimes found in the natural section.)


OMG! THANK YOU to whoever wrote about peanut butter! I haven't had a toothache as bad as this before being that I woke up at 3:30AM with this horrible toothache with no car due to a car accident two weeks ago, I had to use what I had at home! I went to the doctor for back pain (from car accident) and was prescribed ibuprofen 600mg. I took one after I rinsed my mouth with mouthwash. Then I decided that since both the pill and mouthwash didn't work nor did the ice cube I placed on the gum I had no other option but to try this peanut butter stuff. I placed it on the gum around the tooth that was in pain which was my right lower molar. And tah daaaa! Just like magic the PEANUT BUTTER worked! YAY! I swear by it! :) hope this helps someone else even if it's just one individual! Goodluck to all in pain.


I've. Had 4 now severe tooth.ache, where I was hospitalized for last week. The pain was so severe in shooting down my neck into my chest I thought I was having a heart attack..i just turned 30 but apparently the tooth they chipped from having my open heart surgery broke more and the nerve iS exposed. To.get to the point. The only thing that had work was large does of vicoden til that's no longer working, so I tried few from here. SALT WATER RINCE, VODKA SWISHED IN YOUR MOUTH, I SPIT IT OUT, SINCE I DON'T DRINK, BUT OMG THIS WORKED WONDERS THEN FOLLOWED IT WITH SOME VICKS RUB ON THE OUTSIDE OF MY JAW WHERE THE PAIN WAS AT AND IT'S SOOTHING. IT'S NOT 100% GONE..BUT BARELY THERE NOW DOWN TO A 2 AND I WAS AT A 10 IF THAT'S AS HIGH AS U CAN GO ON PAIN SCALE BUT I DON'T FEEL LIKE I WANT TO RAM MY HEAD INTO AN ONCOMING SEMI TO GET KNOCKED OUT FROM THE PAIN LOL.. ALSO.DOC GAVE ME KEFLEX AN ANTIBIOTICS, SUGGEGST GETTING ONE. I ALSO HAVE NO INSURANCE NO ONE WILL INSURE ME DUE TO MY HEART CONTITION. SO THE $3000 FOR THE ROOT CANAL IS OUT OF THE QUESTION..GOOD LUCK WITH EVERYRHING. I LOVED ALL YOUR REMEBIES SO FAR SOME R WORKING THANK U..


I find that using 2 crushed co-codamol in warm milk works perfectly well add chocolate powder for a better taste. Its working better than anything ive tryed. An as for people trying hot water bottle's or owt like that on there bad teeth i was told its the worst thing to do because it make's things worse after a short time it will bring swelling up rather than keep swelling down makin the pain worse


I had this horrible tooth pain that woke up at like 12am. It was so bad I was crying because it felt like someone was stabbing me on my right side of my jaw and the pain Was radiating to my ear and felt like someone was kicking me in my temple. I took ibuprofen and it did nothing finally the pain was so bad I went to the er where they gave me more ibuprofen and told me to cone back in the morning. I was in so much pain that I was hysterical! I saw the dentist n they said I had a very bad infection that had to be treated in order to take out my wisdom tooth that ha broken in half. In the end nothing not even meds from the doctor worked. My mother gave me a hot green tea bag and told me to hold it against my gums where the tooth hurt. At first it hurt so much!! But I delt with the pain and bit down on the teabag like my mom told me and after like 10 mins the pain had calmed down soooo much! I was able to finally fall asleep. Oh ane after u do the teabag thing take an exedrine migraine. Trust me it stopped the radiating pain. Good luck!


Desperation this morning:

removed last bit of temporary filling stuff
aspirin and oragel packet
Looking on this website
salt water rinse
tea bag - felt the tiniest bit better for a few minutes
aspirin and oragel paste directly applied

At which point I was still dying.

orange extract on cotton ball - this is 80% alcohol. Keep tongue away. I did this three times in succession which was probably not necessary if you use enough on a big enough cotton ball. I felt marginally better, but hopeful.

I did cover it back up with the temporary filling stuff you get over the counter.

10 minutes later - MUCH better.
30 minutes later - as good as new.


I know this sounds strange but after loosing a filling while on vacation I tried this and it worked.
1. Swish with warm water
2. Dab with rubbing alchole
3. Put a few drops super glue gel
4. Put small square toilet paper over glue


ok so after being up almost all night and reading through all the remedies i have opted for using salt water icy hot and benedryl and a wet towel heated in the microwave for 5 mins and wrapped in another towel so it doesnt burn your skin stays hotter longer this way my mouth has stopped throbbing and the benedryl is slowing putting me to sleep as i type this if all goes well i will finally sleep will be posting again in the morning to state if the remedy worked or not thanks to everyone's ideas and good luck to everyone else it totally sucks not to have health insurance...
rub the icy hot on the side of face where the pain is then swoosh the warm salt water in your mouth a couple times then take benedryl i took two and then heat up your wet towel in the microwave for 5 mins and wrap with another dry towel to keep heat in and most definitley sleep sitting up i am in a recliner with feet up and head up and hot towel on my face hope this works


After days of pain and doing almost everything here I tried VODKA. 13 hours later still no pain. I slept like a baby after I did it.. Simply take about a cap full and swish it around the infected tooth. now this will burn and hurt but I left it in for about a min or so and like i said 13 hours later no pain...
