Chipped my tooth on a piece of bone aeting a chop at a bbq, it hurt a bit at the time but after a day or 2 it had settled down.
Well the pain would come and go over the next month but after a couple of asprin/ibuprofen it would go away again.
Until 1 horrible morning a woke up with a massive pain and swelling under said tooth.I took a heap of painkillers and made it through the day,the next day I had lost feeling in my chin and bottom lip felt dead to the touch and the pain and swelling was worse.I tried these home remedies clove oil(vile),salt water,heat packs,cold packs booze etc etc
I could not eat or sleep for 2 days and every time my heart beat I could feel it in my jaw(I have been stabbed twice and been in car wrecks breaking bones)this pain was THE WORST I have ever had.
After the 3rd night of no solid food and little to no sleep I looked and felt like a zombie.My girlfriend forced me to go to the dentist.
The x ray showed a small abscess on chipped tooth but because I left it pissing around with these remedies a huge abscess was on the next tooth over.He numbed me and drilled through my good tooth to the large pile of pus, it erupted like a volcano he washed it out then capped it,he removed the chipped tooth(to far gone)and again it sprang forth a river of pus,after more rinsing ,draining
I was sent on my way with a prescription for heavy antibiotics and a steroid dexamethasone.The feeling came back to my chin and lip about a week later.
The pain I felt was unbearable and a result of the infection pressing directly on the nerve no amount of clove oil will fix this or the reason for the infection(ie chipped tooth)I never want to go through this again nor would I wish it on anyone.
See a DOCTOR or DENTIST or you too will be here warning others of 3 days and nights of torture and sleep deprivation.
I was also told that I got it done just in time as the nerve damage could have been permanent and the infection can kill if it gets into the blood.

I was literally in TEARS! I took two Tylenol Pm's with Three regular strength Advil... that didn't even TOUCH my pain. I also have bad teeth due to medications and my thyroid removed. Here is my remedy. Take a tablespoon of garlic powder. A tablespoon of onion powder. And finally take a tablespoon of Sea Salt and blend all that together with about 8oz. or so of very warm water. That will knock it out in no time! I'm feeling so much better and I see my dentist tomorrow morning.
Being a music teacher/guitar teacher i have had to take some test on emergency situations and also i have gone through one root canal and when it comes to tooth aches and tooth pain, some great pain relievers are pure vodka(don't drink, just use as mouth wash), Honey( honey will sooth the throat which can sooth the nerves also), Another is prescribed medication and antibiotics from your dentist or endodontist, and hot black tea with some lemon in it
I have had a problem with abcess trying to start. I have been using Listerine a few times a day along with taking Echinacea to try to build up immunity and stop the abcess. I have been doing this for 2 weeks.
I also started using antioxidant formula with vitamin A,C and E to help with immunity to fight the infection.
The abcess was trying to get worse. I swished with olive oil for 20 minutes (oil pulling). Also ate a garlic clove. Hours later, the abcess is nearly gone.
I am not sure if it was the garlic or the oil pulling or a combination that helped the abcess go away.
I'm trying to keep the abcess from getting out of control until I can see a dentist.
Ohhh yeses my tooth has been killing me and I just read everything on here and I don't have fresh garlic but I had garlic powder and goodies and salt.... So I mixed a lot of garlic powder and salt in a glass of Luke warm water cuz hot spreads the infection and rinsed then let it sit on my tooth may feel hot but it helped my pain so far so wish me luck I know I wish u luck.... Then take the goodies powder added some water in my mouth n swoooshed hope that helps if it comes back
I just got on this website and I had a toothache so bad I was in tears on a scale 1-10 I would say a nine the remedy that helped me the most was mouthwash I cant feel a thing and now im going to have a nice sleep try this I it will work I promise

I don't have a remedy of my own... I was goin they to find something to help me with my pain....my back tooth had a filling that came out and exposed the nerves and it hurts bad I want to rip my head off....I read about putting the hot tea bag on it and to my surprise it works...it really works
Over Christmas holiday, husband had severe tooth pain (root gone bad). To help him until the pain medication kicked in, he sprayed Chloraseptic Throat Spray in his mouth - and on the tooth (enough of it to swish around). Helped him greatly.
I have been putting off going to dentist. got a tooth w a hole in it, filling popped out. I was eating a porkchop and broke a piece off. Been getting crazy pains thru my jaw n down my neck, feels inflamed n kinda pressurized in lymph node. even to my adam's apple n behind my ear. I know ICE is good for inflammation, and it helps my neck. Naproxen Sodium is a good anti-inflammatory. Ibuprofen, aspirin can also help. Stuffed some baby oragel teething gunk in my tooth hole and it calms it from shooting into my jaw. Wish I had regular oragel but my gf told me to try it.. its like a cherry paste which actually packs better into the tooth n stays there cause its gritty. its like the cherry grit they clean your teeth with at the dentist with a lil numbing action. Milk helps. water, anything not acidic. Keep the tooth happy, and your neck n jaw wont hurt. Hot coffee is no good, made it hurt every sip .. They say warm salt water helps, but heat isn't good for inflammation. I find cooling it helps. Need to goto dentist but its Christmas. lol Merry Christmas good luck!
