800MG Motrin is the best thing for pain,obviousley you will need a antibiotic to get rid of infection but at times i have taken 1 800mg Motrin and within 25-30 minutes very minimal pain.
if yo havea broken tooth do this
1.)goto walgrens bu dentemp os or the toothache gum.
2.)go gome, brush well, i know it hurts but you need to clean ir out first.
now use a qtip to dry the broken area of the tooth.
3.)here comes the pain, but its worth it in the end.pack your broken tooth with the dentemp os or tooth ache gum
4.)now it really hurts, i know that made it worse at least for now.
5.)use some clove oil and vanilla extact and oragel on your tooth until the nerve stops freaking out, also taking some ibuprofin will help along with excedrin back and body, because its an nsaid.
6.)in an hour or so you will notice you have to put less and less ora gel and clove oil to keep it from hurting.
this is because you filled the hole and the air and suction that were pissing ff your tooth's nerve now cannot.
just remember, dont go eating anything or it will hurt like hell since the dentemp os is now sitting onto of he nerve.but at least its not exposed!
next step call a damn dentist!
I forgot to add that you shouldnt forget to swallow the alachol as the more you drink the less you feel LOL. But Anyhing you can put in there (after making sure the germs are gone ) that resricts the amount of air flow to the tooth should ease the pain in a trumendous amount
I went searching for the alachol, tryed mouthwash and got short relief. The cavity i have is humongous and hurts worse than having a kid. So Theres this new alachol they have i usualy have a little voldka but Its called 99 bananas. it is 99 proof and i dont know what it is butit hurt for a seccond, but all pain is gone and i know its absecced. it tasts lie banana too:) In desperation i also cut off a peice of an old 'wife beater' shirt and soaked it in there and put it in there. now i may sleep and not cry like a baby.
This is sure to alleviate severe infections.
No sugar - this aids cellular respiration and promotes bacterial growth.
Dry brushing - Brush until the gum around the infected tooth bleeds. This can be painful but this is the body's way of draining the infection.
Salt water rinse - Salt causes osmosis in the bacterium and the loss of fluid stops the growth of bacteria and reproduction.
Ice pack - This is the key, keep it cool. This will keep the swelling down and the swelling is what causes the massive pressure against the tooth and the excruciating pain.
And sleep or rest upright - This slows the blood flow and reduces the blood pressure around the tooth and minimises the throbbing sensation.
Hope this can be helpful to someone.
This really really works. Get powdered activated charcoal capsules at any drug store. About $4 a box. They are usually sold in the stomach remedy section.
Split open 2 capsule in a small bowl. Becareful black powder can get everywhere. Add a bit of water until it's like tooth paste. Coat it all over the tooth and gums that hurt. Charcoal will pull out the toxins and bacteria that are making it throb and you'll be able to rest and sleep because the pain goes away. You still need to get to an endodontist though...because the it can't cure the root.
Try oxy continin dissolved in water than use cotton swab and put on teeth. Works great remedy
History of the Abcess first: Under a bridge. starts aching a little about 6 days ago. You always hope it will go away. It never does. By Sunday I'm at work and I know I am doomed. Only have Tylenol. Take i every 6 hours. Then 2 every 4 hours, 500 mg each. Helps at first, but by Monday afternoon it is not even TOUCHING the pain. Can't see dentist until Tuesday. (Note to self: start petition requiring all aspiring dentists must have suffered at least one abcessed tooth before getting a degree.) Pain is unbearable by 1:30. Find an overlooked tylenol with codein tab and take it. No relief an hour later, so open the notebook and start looking for home remedies. I first tried white tea bag between gun and bridge for 15 minutes. Didn't draw out the abcess. Applied heating pad, mild relief. Still head banging pain. Now even my dogs look worried. Next I tried rinsing mouth with Toms mouth wash..has witch hael and aloe. Surprisingly, area felt marginally better. Found some oil of clove from Hippy store and squirted on the gum. Wow. Instant relief, too bad didn't last. Encouraged, I soaked a green tea bag with vanilla extract and clove oil. I'm not jumping for joy here but one of those things or all are helping a little. I think the clove oil by itself directly on the gum felt the best at least for a few seconds. I know nothing will work permanently except to pull the damn thing...it already had a root canal but I think Someone who never had an abcess missed a root a few years ago!!
i just tried childrens tylonal the liquid kind and so far it seems to be helping out of everything ive tried so far this is the best everyting els is just temp relieve ive taken tylonal ibuprofin and nothings helped ive been putting cold watter in my mouth all day and i work in a gas station so the cant really be an option this does seem to help tho just heldit in my mouth for a couple of minutes
I have an abscessed tooth and cant afford dentist right now. I avoid acidic foods and am careful what I eat. I have trouble falling asleep often. I have to raise my head enough to relieve pressure on the tooth but it works. Mouth wash actually works. For some reason after I rinse the pain slowly goes away for about 15-20 minutes, sometimes just enough to fall asleep. Numb the webbed area between index and thumb with ice, the nerves there affect the face and mouth which helps relieve pain. Oragel makes it worse because its too strong but the mouth sore brand kinda works. Exercise...sounds stupid but works. So when I cant sleep I go for a run, it tires me and working out releases endorphins.
