135 Home Remedies for Tooth with Exposed Nerve


After having many sleepless nights & days off of work & stumbling across this site at 3.20am I read through pages & pages of things but I'm not the sort of person to keep things like whole cloves, garlic powder, vanilla extract etc in the house, or alcohol as I don't drink so I decided after taking as many pain killers as I can & nothing working I tried Bonjela (a teething gel, but they also do one for adults which I am using) just put a small amount on a clean finger & rub around affected tooth & gum. Also a cup of warm water with lots of salt & lots of vinegar & swish round your mouth for as long as you can, vinegar on its own is really good too....just don't swallow it as it isn't very nice! This really really works for me & gives me relief for hours on end.

Like many of you hear, I can't afford dentist fees & this pain comes usually twice a year, my tooth has been breaking off over the years & is basically nothing now but the nerve is exposed which is no fun!

Each & every home remedy on here will work for for one person but not the next 5 so its always good to give everything a go before going to the dreaded dentist!

Good luck all of you! :)


take just a small cheekfull of liqour, hold it on effected area until you feel yur gums tingle. Swish it then spit. ;) Im happy as a clam

i've been up for the past 2 nights with an excsruciating toothache. after trying the tea bag method and cloves i found that it worked but for a short amount of time. i used red cross tooth drops and it helped but made my mouth raw. i used an ice pack it helped some as well. i took tylenol pm to try to sleep. it did nothing for the pain or to help me sleep. i read where using sensodyne toothpaste would alleviate the pain. at this point i would try anything. i was rocking back and forth in agony. i used the sensodyne and the pain instanly went away. thank you so very much to the person who submitted the remedy of sensodyne toothpaste. it honestly worked better than anything else i tried. the pain has not returned yet. thanks again for the advice. seriously use sensodyne toothpaste 1st brush your teeth with it . then put a dab directly on the tooth . leave it for 10 min or so then rinse. i slept like a baby all night.


OMG THANK YOU so very much... As you all know why I am here... My tooth has been KILLING me for 3 weeks.. I have gone to er gotten antibiotics pain pills ive used clove oil,ice water hot water, heating bottles, orajel, toothpaste, hospital brand topical anesthetic from er nothing has worked until I got on here and someone posted about the pure vanilla... So i ran into my kitchen stuck a qtip in the bottle for a quick 10 seconds put it right on my upper tooth bite down gritted my teeth on it and thank god POOF the pain was gone... Now 30 mins later im able to sit here with dry eyes and no pain and now go to sleep..the pain was instantly gone I cant even tell the nerve was so painful. I can bite down without excruciating pain now.. May god bless you whomever posted about the vanilla ... Goodnight..

P.s. Now it will be added to my purse medicine bag for any tooth pain relieve...


A lot of salt in warm water, swish as you see fit or untill the tooth goes numb (if tooth does not go numb just untill all major pain is gone. Then get some Ice cold water and let it sit on the tooth untill it turns warm. repeat. The nerve goes a good bit numb after a while. hurts And stings while your ACTUALLY doing it but MUCH better in the long run. I have used this method for Ages and always works. **A LITTLE PAIN TOLERANCE IS NEEDED FOR THE COLD WATER PART**
