As i am reading all these remedies i have peanut butter in my hand well its off my finger right now, lol ,but i put a big chunk on my tooth and right now i am able to write and think , its still throbbing but not as bad, maybe later it will go away but if you want to sleep or at least calm down a little use peanut butter , it also tastes good :-)
Whoever in this remedy thread said to put Icy Hot on your cheek where the ache was, THANK YOU SO MUCH.
I have been in so much pain for the past three days and have tried nearly every suggestion that this thread had to offer to no avail. I tried the Icy Hot as a last-ditch effort before sticking to my ineffective Listerine and Anbesol cocktail, and it works. It actually freaking works. As long as the Icy Hot is there and fairly fresh, my tooth hardly bothers me. Thank you!
I have had a tooth ache for 3 days now and finally broke down and went to the dentist.....he gave me some antibiotics but of course cant get me in to pull it till 2 months from now......stupid me i took the pills and was just going to try and wait it out.....i lasted mayeb 6 hrs after taking the pill and decided i needed to try something....warm cloth (doesnt work). ice pack (doesnt work). salt water (doesnt work). ice cream (doesnt work). cold cloth (doesnt work). ambesol (doesnt work). tylenol (doesnt work) crying (doesnt work) .........anyways nothing worked for me and thats when i started crying hahaha until my mom who was there for most of the pain finally pipes up and says why dont you try aspirin. IT WORKS all you have to do is take an aspirin (i used bayer) and put it between the ouchy tooth and gum and let it disolve.......dont talk cause it just spreads it around ( i almost puked ) after it had disolved completely i rinsed my mouth out with warm water and it was still hurting a bit so i did it again and now im writing this and not feeling a thing
Half salt half baking powder just enough water to turn to paste. Dip in cotton wool bud and place between tooth and cheek. I swear within 10 mins I could hear the abscess draining. Pure relief. Please spit out the fluid to stop more infection and see a dentist. Good luck.
Had a crown done which went into a screamingly painful abscess... didn't want to go back to the dentist for him to poke around, was in such pain. A friend of mine has a homeopathic dentist who gave her a course of Hepa Sulph pillues to take.... they got rid of her abscess completely so I tried it and within 2 days mine has nearly gone.. going to keep taking them till it goes then go back to dentist for proper crown to go on...... really took all the pain pus and infection away.
My husband has had an abscessed tooth for a week now. His dentist appointment isn't til next week. He has been in so much pain, we have tried everything from peroxide to vanilla extract. The tea bag worked for a while, but the pain has gotten worse. We finally found a remedy that has worked and he has been pain free for a day already -- place two baby aspirin between the tooth and gum and let it dissolve. He got INSTANT relief. Tooth pain is the worst and I hate seeing him in so much pain. I hope it works for everyone else. Take care!
This tastes bad, but the combo works. I haven't been brave enough to try it with oil extracts, but dried ingredients seem to work. In a thin-as-you-can-get coffee filter, combine dried crushed garlic, mint, cloves. Make small packets and tie them off with thread. Put as close to infected tooth as possible and hold it against infected area with cheek and tongue. It takes a while, but garlic is a natural antibiotic, mint a mild painkiller, and cloves just really seem to help with nerve sensitivity. After two hours, switch out for fresh packet. Unless your stomach is iron, do not swallow juices. It took two days for me, but the abscess was drawn out and the dentist flat told me it was the antibiotics. I showed him the full bottle and he shut up. It takes an hour sometimes more to start taking the pain down, but it works. If you are brave, try it with oil extracts of these ingredients, but don't swallow the juices. makes you queasy.
Take a square of coffee filter, tea bage paper or something like that.
Add crushed clove and roll like a very short cig then tuck between cheek and gum.
Repeat as needed for pain control. Soon it will start to drain the abcess. Maybe after a day.
Tried and Proven: I always use the orange chewable baby aspirins(and you can use up to 8 every 4-6hrs) Just put 2 or 3 to start around/on the affected area and the disolve quickly and taste ok too! You can also use 1 regulare aspirin(like Bayer) if you can stand the taste of it and again let it disolve on/around the bad tooth. Pain will be reduced 50-95%.
Warning: This should only be used in the event you can't get to a dentist because aspirin overtime can be bad for your gums.
ALSO: I always keep a couple miniture flavored vodkasin thr refridgerator (or I guess any booze would do). Just squish around or bend your head to one side(where the pain is)and hold as long as possible. It may burn your tongue a bit but it will take away the pain!
oil of cloves thtas all i need say available in any health shop. simply place on ear and rub around gum relives pain on contact
