904 Home Remedies for Abscessed Tooth


Salt Water, Brushing Teeth and Midol.


I had a back tooth repaired a month ago and was told there may be some discomfort. There was but it subsided after about two weeks. After Christmas it flared up again and hasn't settled. I checked on this site and tried the numerous recommended remedies. I did take Ibuprofen, but it barely dulled the pain. I took paracetomol to no avail. I tried vanilla essence, peppermint essence, a wet black tea bag held against the tooth inside the cheek. I swished with vodka, sea salt water and, as I didn't have any oregano oil or flakes, I mixed some mixed herbs where the third ingredient was oregano in warm water and swished with that. I sprayed collodial silver, but I didn't have much left of that. I also rubbed some cayenne pepper directly onto the gum, but although it burnt quite a bit, it didn't seem to numb the pain. But, by 1 a.m. in the morning something must have worked as I did find relief from 1 a.m. until 7 a.m. before it started throbbing again.

My dentist said that I was likely to need a root canal treatment, but I have read there can be long term problems with that so would rather a natural cure. My dentist agreed that I could have a prescription for Amoxicyllin if I wanted, but I have put an order in for 3% food grade hydrogen peroxide and some more collodial silver. I have also bought some bee propolis which I have been told by an alternative practitioner works as well as an antibiotic without the side effects. In the meantime, my husband came home for the weekend and gave me two of his co-codamol which brought instant relief within five minutes and lasted for a full eight hours. One can apparently take co-codamol every four hours, but only for a maximum of three days. Probably because it could become addictive.

I have been onto YouTube and watched a video on how to make one's own clove oil, which is supposed to be good for numbing tooth pain. I had some cloves in and some olive oil, so set about making my own. Once I made it I used a Q-tip to put the oil on the affected gum area. I think it gave a small amount of relief, but I still think I will take my next co-codamol in a couple of hours to get me through the night. I will swish the bee propolis every two hours for the next week and see if its antibiotic properties make any difference.

I will also be taking Blockbuster Allclear every morning along with four serrapeptase capsules (as they are supposed to repair nerve damage). I will report back and let you all know how I have done.

So Co-Codamol was my immediate saviour from pain but not the natural cure I was looking for.

finally sleeping

I was crawled up in the corner with a toothache. I actually ran into this low beam in my basement to knock me out. Here's what I did, for those people who put heat on their tooth STOP DOING IT!!!! The heat spreads the bacteria and makes it worse. If you cant go to the dentist go to the er. They will you pain killers and antibiotics which will cost less then all these remedys. But if you cant go to the er get whole cloves they work better then any over the counter drugs. And try to look up discounted dentists I know how you feel


I had an 'abscessed tooth' (number 13 I think, on my left upper right?) - and a filling had fallen out some odd years ago.

Well, after awhile the pain just progressed worse and worse. I think it's safe to say, the pain resulting from pulp in a tooth is about the worse you an endure.

I tried the self filling at first, one bc I had no dental insurance, and two bc I suffer from dental anxiety.

FINALLY, I sought after professional help.

If you're in real pain, just get the help you need. No matter the cost, it's worth getting rid of the pain.


My tooth pain reliever that I made! This should be put in stores for tooth pain...

1.) Gargle with Warm Salt Water.

2.) Mix theses Ingredients together in a small bowl.

a. Vanilla Extract
b. Baking Soda
c. Ora jell -Server Tooth Formula
d. Crushed up Advil or Aspirin

3.) make a thick past and put it to the hurt tooth or the exposed nerves or gums in your mouth and it will numb it up right away!!!

I did this at 5:30Am today and i am STILL Numb at 9:40Am Its a Miracle!!!
Just put the left over mix in your refrigerator so you can apply more when needed.

I just thought I would share this info with you guys. because if anyone is in as much pain as I was last night. I feel for you and I would never wish that type of pain on my worst enemy! I was a Grown woman in TEARS last night pacing my house all night long!


Honestly right now at this moment hard alcohol and liqour seriously and no joke and b.s intended or distespect

the e and j and coke I'm sipping on has worked better than the tube lf maximum strength oragel and most of what is suggested on this page in tbe past I have tried

I have had severe tooth ache painin the past from abesses cavities and etc

and am suffering now i have had this one almost nonstop to the point I can't sleep and walk the floor I've tried brushing rinseing. Tubes of maximum strength orgel

praying crying begging paceing the floor in painand

If you don't mind being doped up I s

vikodin .since I hate taking pills and don't have acess to.them anyway that and none of these remides seem to be working

Not even ....rinseing my mouth in hot water salt and proxide because it kills the infection thus reducing the pressure swelling and ending the pain

Doinv that and then brushing lightly with an sterlized and clean toothbrush with toothpaste with baking soda and proxide then following by rinsing with luke warm water usually helps ..

And in the end whst lol un deniably works is prescribed meds and antabotics

obviously the best temidey for toothachesand sufferz because it attacks and kills the bacteria and infection...but you usually have to see an dentist or take an quick trip to an emergency room and pharmacy to get those.


Abscessed tooth:
I had an abscessed tooth for a day or two before I actually started looking at home remedies, before this I was just popping painkillers (which didn't work) and crying.

Nurofen plus are the best pain relief I could have asked for, the ibruprofen stops most of the pain, and the codeine makes you relax.
Salt water, as much and as often as you can handle it, best antibacterial you can use.
Difflam numbing gel, or anything like this, it numbs your gums and really reduces the swelling.
Dry black teabag at night time or even during the day, for an hour or as long as you can handle.

I was in agony for days, then these four things helped me keep my sanity.
My abscess has come to a head, and can be drained with clean cotton buds. Even though I have zero pain anymore, and I'm not on any pain relief anymore, I still brush my teeth, rinse with salt water, THEN antibacterial mouthwash and then water everytime I eat, smoke, anything.
I hope this helps.
I can't stress how much the salt water helps.


Its super easy :
take salt put little in the palm of your hand then lick a tiny bit with your tongue swush it aroud then spit
Repeat more than 6 times


Vicoden, Crown Royal, and Mushrooms!!! Doesnt heal the mouth ulcers, but makes u forget that u have them!!! Lol


i have done the pain pill thing quite a bit and even vicodin hasn't helped much. glyoxide takes the edge off. it's like peroxide but thicker and more concentrated. you can find it in the dental care aisle. it will pull out debris and numb the area a bit.

oragel hasn't worked, pain pills haven't worked. i tried the warm salt water thing and my mouth exploded with pain. exploded. i went back to the glyoxide and now i'm curled up with an ice pack on my cheek. not practical for long term care but it will do until i can get to a dentist.
