i have known about clove oil for a long time (anyone remember the movie MARATHON MAN ?). Another quick fix is to moisten a tea bag, place it in your mouth over/under the socket and bite down gently. Tastes less offensive than clove oil and works just as well.
Like many others I have TERRIBILE toothe pain in my lower right molar caused by infection at the root. The pain is much bigger than the relief provided by Tylenol with codiene that I am eating like candy. The pain extends all the way to my temple, gets worse with hot or cold substances and air temperatures, and sometimes spikes into the left side of my tongue. I can't go to the dentist because I just returned from the dentist two days ago having a molar surgically removed from the left side. I gotta have at least one side to chew on cause room temperature mashed potates and applesauce have gotten really old. Until the left side heals up completely, I am forced to suffer through. So, I find myself on this website.
In complete desperation I combined several remedies cause I needed immediate relief.
From my pantry I used 2 shakes of garlic powder, 1 shake of sea salt, 4 whole cloves, about 5 drops of olive oil, and a dash of cayenne pepper. smashed the cloves to powder mixed everything together to make a paste. Applied the paste librally to the affected toothe, making sure to get it into the space where the pain was greatest, but also making sure to NOT get it into my open surgical wound. Allowed it to sit about 5 min. I wiped away the excess, but did not rinse my mouth.
Yes, there was much burning for the first 30 seconds and all I could think was 'burn baby burn'. But, the burning was nothing compared to the pain I had.
After about 2 min maybe less, my pain started to subside, and after 5 min, it was completely GONE. 8 hours later, I am still pain free, although I have the previously prepared paste on standby.
Hope this helps.
garlic is the best; just try it now it amazing how it worked my toothache is gone thank you, and thanks god for garlic.
tea bags I swear they work I had the most umber-able pain. I tried mouthwash @ aspirin with salt to make a paste I then decided to try the tea bag i put it in a cup with hot water dipped it in just to get it wet then wrapped it around my tooth and 3 days later no more pain thank god i am also taking antibiotics now.
I have an old filling that fell out of my back right upper teeth a few months ago. My family has long struggled with tooth problems, and I've been waiting for the first of the year (for my FSA cash to kick back in) to go to the dentist.
Tonight, while sitting in my mancave downstairs, a raging toothache hit me out of nowhere. In a manner of 10 minutes, I was doubled over on my couch. I did some searching and found this site.
Thirty minutes ago, I went upstairs and mixed garlic power with a little bit of salt and pepper in warm water (not hot). I swished it around my mouth for as long as I could stand, spit it out, then swished around some more. I probably had a 12 oz. cup of the mixture, and I poured out the final three or four ounces.
It still hurt for about 15 minutes after, but I could feel the pain subsiding. Now I'm pain free. I'll definitely be calling my dentist in the morning (FSA money be damned), but for now I can function and feel OK ... even if my breath smells like pizza :-).
well my home remedies is everything i basically know done all the same time
first i will get a hot tea bag and place it on my tooth , then after 2 mins i will swish my mouth with liquior hard liq like vodka so it can help the tooth then after i will get a piece of garlic and A glass with warm water and salt bring it into the bathroom because that's where you will take a shower and when you're in the shower you will brusouh your teeth then rinse it with mouth wash then wash it out with the salt water then on the side of the hurting tooth u will chomp down on the raw garlic it might burn , then after leave it so it can work then get a ice pack or a cloth with ice and place it on the side with the huritng tooth then lay down and relax , hope it works for u because it works for me .
Hi you poor souls my husband has a very high pain tolarance but this time round the pain won. After not knowing what to do to help him I started to read what you all had written.

It's almost 3.30 in the morning After 5.30 hrs of pain, we can both go to sleep Please listen mix salt garlic powder and cyane pepper with half cup water and gurgle no more pain and now l too can go to bed thanx all
I have used garlic capsules many times instead of drug based anti biotics when I have infections. Garlic has anacilin in it which is a natural form of anti biotic, you wouldn't want to eat raw garlic as it would stink. You can buy the capsules from Asda, Tesco, Walmart or anywhere and I normally take 2-3 capsules two to three times a day for 3 days then down to 3 a day for 7 and its completely better. Good luck with it :)
#1 remedy GO TO THE DENTIST! I know it's expensive, I don't have insurance but you could die from the infection. If it is bad and you really can't afford it go to the emergency room, they can't turn you away. At least they can give you a prescription for antibiotics to kill the bacteria
make a cup of hot Tea (the stronger the better 2 bags of lipton or black tea worked for me)
in the tea make it as hot as possible and add 5-6 full cloves and a teaspoon of vanilla extract
drink it slow and move it around in the bad tooth area. you should start feeling less pain in under 5 minutes.
Problem is this takes the pain away but your awake from the tea. If you need relief to sleep don't use this. If you just want pain relief this worked for me.
