901 Home Remedies for Abscessed Tooth


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.

I cracked my molar when my silver filling fell out a couple of months ago. Since then, I've been putting off the dentist, like normal people do, except my tooth pain began to get progressively worse. I was crying, had an earache, a headache and my body was sensitive. It was clear the bacteria were proliferating. So until I could make an emergency visit to have the tooth removed, I crawled around the kitchen and got some garlic powder and salt. (I already had 100% pure clove bud oil.) I swished about a tablespoon of garlic, a tablespoon of salt and 2 cups warm water around for about 20 minutes. Finally the pain subsided a little.. So then i dabbed some clove oil on a cotton swab and applied inside the cracked tooth and around the gums and I'm finally able to function and think clearly. The pain is still there but it pales In comparison to what I was just going through.


hello had my molar cracked a month ago. maybe because bacterias sneaked in the old filling underneath. Then a slow pain emerged later on I try to flush with hydroperoxide but it made everything worse. Maybe it finally broke through my root canal. Excruciating pain and i went to the kitchen took a skinned garlic clove chewed on it. My whole mouth was on fire so much i didnt feel the pain anymore. There is some garlic left in my molar maybe thats the trick. Anyway this happened ten minutes ago see whats happening later on.


THIS WORKED WONDERS FOR ME!!! I recently had an abscessed lower wisdom tooth and with no insurance I relied on what I could find in the way of home remedies. I combined a few different remedies I have found on different websites and the regimen below worked miracles!!! (note: you will still eventually need to see a dentist or oral surgeon but the regimen below should reduce the pain and infection DRASTICALLY!):

You will need:
Sensodine tooth paste
Very soft toothbrush
Salt (sea salt or table salt)
Black Tea tea-bags
spit cup

1. Brush your teeth with Sensodine with the softest toothbrush you can find and very gently concentrate on the affected area.
2. Swish with Listerine, again try to concentrate on the affected area - swish for as long as is comfortable but try to keep the Listerine in your mouth for at least 30 seconds to a minute.
3. Fill a 6 - 8 oz. Glass with warm water and a tablespoon or so of salt (sea salt is best but table salt will do in a pinch). Swish with a mouthful of the salt water for as long as you can stand it (again at least 30 seconds to a minute), continue this process until you have finished the glass of salt water (hint: keep chapstick handy as this process can really dry out your lips!)
4. Dab some extra strength Oragel on the affected area and surrounding gumline with a Q-Tip - be sure pull your cheek and tongue away from the area as the Oragel soaks in to avoid any unwanted numbness.
5. As the Oragel takes affect cut open a tea bag of plain black tea any brand, but try to steer clear of any black teas that have fruit flavor added. Empty out the tea and cut a small oblong piece of the tea bag, fill this with some of the tea and roll it up as if you were rolling a very small burrito, being sure to tuck in the ends so that the tea stays in. Next place one end of the little “tea tube” you’ve made over the top of the affected tooth and then tuck the rest of the tube between your gums and cheek. VERY VERY gently bite down JUST ENOUGH TO KEEP THE TEA TUBE IN PLACE - this will be quite uncomfortable at first (hence the Oragel) soon the pain will subside and the tea tube will become softer as it gets wet (note: do not wet the tea tube before putting it in, the dryness of the tea tube will help draw out the infectious fluid much quicker). You may find better placement for the tea tube depending on where the affected tooth and gums are located in your mouth - my method was for a lower wisdom tooth. Leave the tea tube in place for at least two hours - keep a spit cup handy and try not to swallow any of your saliva or the tea “juice” to avoid ingesting any of the infectious fluid being pulled out by the tea tube. If you can leave it in for longer than 2 hours go for it!
6. Finally, remove the tea tube and swish again with either Listerine or more warm salt water (I am sure you will find that you much prefer the Listerine to the salt water). After rinsing be sure to carefully inspect the tooth and gumline area to make sure you have rinsed out any remaining tea. (I keep a small LED flashlight in my bathroom for this). Then dab on some more Oragel.

At this time your mouth will still be a bit sore due to all the activity near the inflamed tooth and gums but TRUST ME YOU WILL FEEL A MILLION TIMES BETTER! After using this regimen just once almost ALL my swelling went away by the next morning (I did the regimen before bed) and the pain had gone from a 9 to a 2! I completed the entire regiment a few more times over the next week and each time I felt better and better! Once you feel better don’t slack off on the brushing and Listerine!!! Until you are able to see a dentist follow the tips below:

A few extra tips for throughout the day:
1. Gently brush at least 3 times a day (especially after every time you eat anything - yes, that means even after you eat a handful of chips or any other small snack)
2. Steer clear of ALL sweets, even flavored coffee creamer...(all coffee drinkers groan in unison...) I know, I know, that part sucks but you’ll have to tough it out!
3. Carry a travel bottle of Listerine with you at all times and swish often.
4. Drink LOTS of water (the closer to room temperature the better).
5. Stay away from food or drink that is very hot or very cold.

I hope this helps! Best of luck to all of you!!! And believe me when I say I FEEL YOUR PAIN!!!
