I've come across many posts about nerve pain, but including gum and overall tooth pain, both of which I don't have. I have an exposed nerve in the bowl of my tooth that shocks me every 8 minutes. This shock is unexplainable, but the anxiety I get when the next one comes, adds even more stress. I read about clove oil but for toothache pain, not these nerve shocks. Swishing with Listerine helps for about 20 minutes, ora-gel only numbed the side of my mouth, but when the jolts attempted to return, I could still feel a good 50\\% of it. Sensodyne helped for a bit of time, but ultimately, I would say swish the Listerine, then chew sugar free gum. Once the gum has completely softened, place the gum directly into the bowl of the tooth and let it sit there. I can still feel attempted jolts but only at about 10\\%. It's Memorial Day Weekend and emergency dentists are difficult to find, plus I have no money. Mind you, I've been replacing new gum every 8 hours, but I can successfully sleep for a long duration now. I know it won't work for everyone, but my post specifically targets nerve pain only within the tooth, nothing around the gum line or base.
OMG. I've been in CRAZY pain for months now. I have not 1 but TWO, yes TWO exposed nerves on both sides of my mouth, I've lost tons of weight because I cant eat, and if something gets lodged into the hole, omg, it shoots this shocking electric SEVERE pain from the tooth up to my ears, down my neck, I've had 2 kids and I will tell you its WORSE than childbirth. I've been pretty much overdosing on ibuprofin and tylenol, i take 800 mg worth of ibuprofin 200mg and 3 tylenol xtra strength and it dulls the pain but my body so immune to the meds now, it barely works. I've been swishing with room temp water which kinda helps. I cant shove anything in the hole or it pushes on the nerve and makes the pain 100x worse. So packing it is out of the question. I was told to buy a pack of cinnamon gum but anything with sugar kills my mouth so idk how this is gonna work...
Alright guys. I have the answer you need. We all know ours bodies respond differently to things. But after trying everyone elses remedy on this forum I found the one that works for me. My tooth is broken and Im am in such pain narcotics dont even work anymore. I was swish ice cold water every 2 mins literally. I bought honey vanilla cinnamon and tried that paste and stuck it in tooth and it didnt work. Tried milk didnt work. So i decided to swish with straight vanilla. OMG!!!!!!!! It burned and continue to hurt for good little while then viola!! The pain subsided. I can still feel the nerve twitching every now and then but its been 20 mins now and I feel great. Try it.
Exposed nerve D.I.Y pain remedy
So i was in a lot of pain for the past 72 horrid hours of my life. I have a broken upper molar with exposed nerve. Tried everything i could think of. From clove oil to cinnamon to chamomile tea to green tea. Nearly overdose on Paracetamol and nothing is working then i hit jackpot. I found my kids ibuprofen. Took cotton dab with ibuprofen and shoved it into the hole. Kills the bloody nerve pain from a 10 seismic equivalent earthquake pain to a 2 minor richter scale quake. And now to a ZERO pain. I am insane in the membrane from pain that i decide even if i need to go to hell and back i need to try find something that works. And WALLA ! It worked and i should have done it sooner pfft !! Cause of this hour as i am typing. I am pain free
I tried panadol, aspirin, mouthwash, salt water, couldn't sleep all night. Girls at work said use Bonjela, the baby's relief for sore gums when teething. Put it in the tooth, around the gums with cotton bud. Worked immediately.
YES,the sensodyne remedy is working for me right now.Thank God!
Omg I have 2 exposed roots on the left side..I'm saving $$$ as I have dental insurance but I need a few things done. I've been in so much pain over the last couple of days and have hardly slept. Been popping motrin 600 like candy to no avail. Just was reading the comments on here and just rubbed some of my Crest sensitive directly on the exposed nerves and the pain is GONE!!!! THANKS
I had dental surgery about two weeks ago and was suffering from severe nerve pain throughout the upper and lower gum area on one side of my face. I was taking 1-2 vicodin every 4-6 hours just to get by, until I read a post that suggested using a topical creme. I rubbed Aspercreme along the jawline of my left cheek and am now in NO PAIN. It is nothing short of miracle--do give it a try!!!
I really just took some pain killers but that did not help so I do not recomend that. When I am like going to sleep I will put something inbetween the gums and the tooth that hurt.
I somehow chipped my front left tooth. I went to the dentist hoping that they could fix it. They told me that I could have it pulled out but I didn't want to do that because it is a front tooth. I felt so embarrassed, but they told me that It needed a root canal. but my insurance did not cover it. So I went home and researched it and came across this site that under this program called the health safety net where they do services that insurance don't cover. So the hsn. will do the root canal free to me under this program. I was able to find a dentist close to me that would do it. So I made an appointment to have my tooth looked at and then they scheduled the appointment for a month later. So April 27th I will have it fixed. But 3 days ago I started to feel severe pain in my broken tooth. It's a sharp, sensitive piercing feeling. It's very painful. So the tooth must of chipped more an now the nerve is exposed. I called the dentist to try get a sooner appointment but said the dentist doing the procedure is coming in on that day. So they just sent two prescriptions to the pharmacy. One is amoxicillin for antibiotic in the second is ibuprofen. I was a lil mad cus I been taking ibuprofen already an its not working. They said to take it every four hours. I kind of wanted a couple Percocet for the pain. I still have about 12 more days to go. I don't kno if taking the ibuprofen more often will help. I kno the antibiotic will, but this pain is unbearable and kills. I didn't see anything in the home remedy that I would try. Just one that there's an oral kit at Walgreen's but don't kno if it'll help my broken front tooth. I heard that the air hitting the nerve makes it so painful. I believe that's very true. I'm hoping I can get pain meds ASAP! I'm going to go to Walgreen's tomorrow to see if I can find anything that will help???
