904 Home Remedies for Abscessed Tooth


Hi guys. Last Saterday, I got my teeth tightened(I have braces) and all my teeth got sore and such after that. So after all that pain went away and I could CHEW food, a few days after THAT, one of my teeth started to hurt.
Like HURT. It felt like it always did when it got sensitive when I breath in cold air around this tooth. This tooth was the only one thats sensitive like this in my mouth. But not it feels sensitive 24/7! Like I'm continuously breathing in cold air around it D:
Lately I would go to sleep and wake up an 1hour later because of the pain and get annoyed by it. It hurts, like in the inside. Using stuff like oralgel made the outside of my gum numb, but I could still feel the pain so I assumed it was withen my root.

Im not sure if it's an abcessed tooth though, it just happened all of the sudden. Maybe it might be my braces. Oh! A few years back, I've also had two fillings done on the same tooth, one of the side(with a bracket RIGHT ON IT) and one on the inside. Oh! And earliar that day, I was drinking juice like no tomorrow(like kool-aid and sunny d). I think that may have been the cause. Nothing is swollon, It only hurts inside the tooth where I cant reach it. Heeelllppppp plleeaaseee D:

I've only used simple 2 minute relieve things D: A few years back, I was suppose to get a root canal(for reasons unknown to me) but they canceled it because of my responses when they were seeing if I needed it. in to make it temp. Like using more pain to make it stop hurting. As in water and swish around infected area, hydro...something...eww okay that taste icky. I didn't taste it at first but...yea eww. if anyone could help me please, it hurts and I'll have to wait a week before I can see my dentist cause I need an overdued checkup >.> and it distracts me from studying .-.


I noticed an abscess starting the other day.I have had one before probably 8 years ago. Both times i've use the same remedy and ITS WORKED EACH TIME.
I feel your pain and know what your going through. Last night was night #2 and the pressure was unbearable.
The next morning i woke up at 630 and went to the local cvs
-green tea bags
-baking soda
take the advil first and put the dry tea bag right on the abscess. it will shrink it considerably in 15 minutes and form a head(white weak spot)
use a little peroxide and clean a pin/needle.. pop the head of the abcsess and push out the puss. --INSTANTLY RELIEVING THE PAIN--

next wet a cotton swab or something similar,(new advil bottle will have one inside) add peroxide and a half teaspoon of baking soda. and place it directly on the abscess. 10 or so minutes later rinse you mouth out with a mixture of table salt/grounded ginger(acts as an antibiotic((don't believe me look it up))/and warm water about 2or3 times a day and it won't even feel like you had one.

it will be completely deflated and NO PAIN! i literally did this hours ago.
Best of luck to you all.


I had a very bad abcess and my friend suggested using coconut oil. Heat it up (On a Stove) and swish it around your mouth. It really does work and you can get it at walmart. Do it for about 15 minutes. It pulls out infection and takes the pain away.

Try it! I hope everyone feels better. This is worse than labor, I know!!

Tooth Ache

I have found that you can take out a lot of pain using the Temp-a-dent or Dentemp. They're sold at any drug store. Basically what it does is it works as a temporary filling and if you get it in there correctly it'll keep everything out and kill the pain. I've also found that the new 'long lasting formula' from Orajel works great for teeth that cant be filled and it stays on there for hours.


I had a severe abcessed tooth and my home remedy was a gauz saturated with honey, and a ice pack on the affected cheek. The honey draws the moisture and the bacteria out of the tooth and the ice pack reduces the swelling. Swelling gums will cause other teeth aroung the affected abcess tooth to join in on the pain party, hence double trouble. Honey gauz pad and ice was more effective than the two 800 mg of ibuprofen.


so ive tried pretty much every remedy on this page besides the red cross kit! i was thinking about getting it last night but today i feel a little better, might not need it. these remedies helped me most.

1. IBPROFEN - there is no substitute, i was taking norco, tylenol, soma, asprin. nothing took the pain away but the ibprofen, somone posted take 4 200mg pills every 4 hours, worked really well for me. pills can take up to an hour to kick in if you have a full stomach, so dont miss doses and have the pain come back!!

2. rinse mouth out with hydrogen peroxide. i gargled this on my tooth for about 30 sec - 1 min intervals cause it really felt like it was stinging or drying out my gums. but i would rinse my mouth out with mouth wash, water, salt water, water, EVERYTHING but when i let the peroxide sit on the tooth and bubble in there, it pulled out some black crap!! pretty sure it worked out whatever was in my tooth causing the infection. i would suggest rinsing every hour if you can. or as often as you can..

3. warm salt water rinses felt good, but didnt last long. kills many germs in mouth

4. crushed cloves on my tooth, kept them in my mouth a little while to get them soft, bit on them with good teeth a little to soften them too, then crushed them on infected tooth and let it sit on it for about 20 mins.

5. the tea bag trick worked for me, but only once.. i tried it again and idk it wouldnt stop the pain. but it worked really well the first time around

6. EAT AND DRINK HEALTHY! dont be drinking soda and eating sweets while your tooth is infected. this isnt helping your body fight the infection. drink lots of water.

and just make sure you get rest, if youre not sleeping then your body prob isnt doing a good job healing. also i wouldnt smoke either. i know its hard, but this helps.

good luck guys. my heart goes out to all of you!


I have had severe tooth pain for months waiting to get into an apt with the dentist. Here is a list of things that worked the best for me. First of all the more you can relax, the less pain you will have. Second, pop an excedrin migraine or equate headache relief which is the genaric brand, followed by 400 mg of ibprophen, add an alive, and make sure you take with something carbonated. Third, gentley brush your teeth with a non whitening toothpaste. Fourth rinse mouth with a mix of peroxide and water, which I warn you tastes gross, but helps. Finally pop into a nice relaxing bath or shower. Within 20 to thirty mins you will be pain free for about 6 to eight hours.


garlic stuffed in hole of tooth will kill infection and fill tooth , chage 3 times a day and this will stop pain in 1 or 2 days and kill infection in about a week. Brush teeth well then chop garlic a tiny bit bigger than the hole and stuff it in good and proper. Good luck.


I take after my father with bad teeth. Ive got cavities and most of my teeth have been cracked. Runs in the family. But when one tooth hurts, its my whole mouth hurting. Here is what i've tried.
Dent tooth aache gum, it works good, but it doesnt last.
Tooth ache gel, doesnt works, just makes the pain worse.
Vanella abstract, donesnt work.
Loratabs, don't work.
So you can imagine how bad my tooth aches are, because NOTHING works,
the ONLY thing that works for me, is takin tylonol and putting rice in a sock, yes i know strange, tieing the sock and heating it up in the microwave.
Tooth ache is gone in less then ten minutes.
So if NOTHING seems to be working for you, try what i do.


aspirin, crush it, put in on your tooth. the only short relief i've felt in hours of throbbing, sobbing pain.
