I had started to get tooth pain early am (3ish) yesterday i took 3 ibuprofen woke up the pain was worse but not horrible. Then tried to eat (huge mistake) just irritated it more. But still wasn't as bad as previous abscesses (just got over a horrible one top right) i go into work at 5 i notice it getting more irritating. By 9 o'clock came i wanted to bust my head through a wall! Went straight home and tried the garlic remedy I've heard good things. Well it didn't help one bit made me sick to my stomach from the taste as well.Next took 4 ibuprofen (which has never failed) didn't help for even 5 minutes! I toss and turn in my bed for hours then jump on here. 1st brushed teeth well. Gargled with listerine. Nothing. Gargled again about hr or 2 later nothing. Gargle with salt water a bit if relief for about 15 mins. Smoked a cig helped me get my mind off but still hurt like a sob! I lay in bed exhausted and in horrible pain tossing and turning. It is now 5:00am then i remember the last abscess i had (which was a week ago) i had tried the teabag remedy and felt it had helped a bit so i went to the cupboard got the last one it was french vanilla black. Put it in between my tooth and gum. Fell in and out of sleep until 6:30 my alarm goes off i go to the bathroom and take it out. The whole side of my mouth is swollen however, there was a head on the abscess huge and ready to pop. I already felt relief just from it coming to a head but i sterilized the needle. Brushed and gargled. And it popped so easy didn't hurt a bit! Drained and stuck gauze. Going to keep pushing on it from time to time make sure all that gook is out . Thank you teabags :)
First off, I would like to thank all of you guys! You really helped me out!
I have a cracked tooth, half of it is gone and the other half is still in. Randomly I get painful toothaches. I read the comments on here and I tried chewing/sucking on limes, putting peanut butter on the area that hurts, vanilla extract, and a wet tea bag. I finally came across rinsing the affected area with LISTERINE mouth wash. That worked! It became a dull throbbing but it was way better than the pain I was experiencing before. Before that, I washed my mouth with warm salt water. Helped for a few minutes. Then, after the mouth wash, I heated up a washcloth for 30 seconds and put it on my cheek. It felt soo soothing and took my mind off the pain. While that was happening, I massaged the little webby part between my index finger and my thumb, it took the pain away in about a minute, came back randomly though. But all in all, the pain I have now is way way less than the pain I had before. I can actually function. Before, I was about to pull out my hair. And now, I can actually lay and watch tv and write this. Don't get me wrong though, pain is still there. And I HATE the dentist with a passion. Thank you again to everyone for the ideas! I hope all of you never have to go through a toothache again.

Silica is known as 'nature's surgeon' and I have used it to completely get rid of an abcess and avoid a root canal. You buy it in a small tube and take 3-5 pellets of it by dissolving in your mouth near or on the tooth every couple of hours for the first day. Mouth will actually get more painful, but because abcess is being pulled up and out. Keep doing it until you get what feels like a bump on your gum and then pop it with your finger. Then follow up treatment with vitamin c and keep taking silica until you feel you are healed. Initially abcess should come up in 1-2 days, but as with any healing, your immune system needs time, anywhere from a couple of weeks to months to heal the open area. I keep a bottle of gum cleaner on hand in case I feel that area is subjected to too many sweets, colas, etc. It has been 6 years since the dentist said I needed emergency root canal. Just keep your teeth clean and build immune system and body tries to heal itself.
I had severe pain in my molar am scared to death of dentist so been putting it off was so bad in tears ear hurt pain running done my leg my face was numb I found a miracle cure called DenTek Eugeno it's a little bottle of cloves put in on and around tooth and it stopped hurting used it one more time and pain was gone slept all night woke up and still no pain try it it really works
You can also use Red cross tooth ache kit. The eugenol in that will numb even the worst mouth. another way to get a good sourse of Eugenol is using clove oil. Clove oil works wonders for mouth pains but is hard to come by.
Small acute toothache tonight; Ibuprofen not helping, and didn't feel like making late night trip for expensive Oragel. Happened to have some dried Sage, which I placed in the pocket of my cheek by the tooth. Mostly seemed like gum inflamation. Inany case, seems to have worked with no burning, and the taste is actually quite good. Garlic will be next, then Cayenne. Don't give the drug companies your hard-earned money if you don't have to! Good luck!
ive got a hole in my top back tooth and the pain was unberable i usualy use cloves of garlic but it didnt work this time so instead i used orajel and peppermint extract just dabbing it on around the tooth and now the pain is almost gone .
I been in severe pain with a tooth ache for the past 4days. Went to the ER bout 2 days ago n was given an antibiotic n 2 different types of pain killer. After reading a couple of remedies I decided to try the tea bag. Omg dis was the absolute best remedy ever. Tried it a couple hours ago with a 800mg ibprofin and haven't had any pain yet. Here it is almost 2am n still no pain. ;);););)
Well let me just say I have had my fair share of toothaches but this one has definitely been the worst. Lower left back tooth is completely gone and the whole left side of my face was in agonizing pain with an extreme earache. I tried dr. tichenors mouthwash and after 2-3 rinses I saw great improvement because it's an antiseptic. Took about 3 advil pm's and alas I was able to sleep for a few hours. Antibiotics are definitely what you need but until then.. This helped me out tons!!!
