i have had really bad teeth for a long time. my problem is hereditary. my teeth are so bad they r broken alot of them down to my gums and i dont have insurance or money to get them pulled. my only hope when i get a toothache is if it causes a puss bubble to form beside the tooth. then i just stab it with a sharp knife and use a qtip to apply pressure to get the infection out. after that i feel wonderful because i gave the infection somewhere to go besides pushing up on my tooth causing me pain. i hope this helps. it may b painfull to stab the bubble but it helps alot
Too Abcesses are very dangerous. If it has gotten to the point you cannot sleep because the pain is so bad every time you lay down its all you can think about, stop fooling yourself. You need to seek medical help immediately. Your bodies Immune system will fight off infection as best as it can but if you cannot sleep that will compromise your immune system and bring even worse problems into your body.
I have read people suggesting lancing and draining techniques. Let me caution you, from the very mouth of my own dentist when I asked her about the practice. DO NOT DO IT. An infection is dangerous as it is, it gets even more dangerous once it enters the blood stream. If you are not a medical professional do not try lancing an abcess. If the infection gets into your blood stream you will become septic and can die.
I had no insurance but my back tooth was killing me(not a figure of speech) I ended up getting a loan using my car title to go see the dentist, they gave me antibiotics, a powerful painkiller and two weeks later extracted three of my rear teeth, two of which had been permanently damaged by the infected one. If you are in that much pain as i was in what ever material possessions you have that can be sold i suggest selling them to go to the dentist, they can be replaced, your teeth can be replaced, your life cannot.

Like others have mentioned previously, it can be a number of things that is causing your tooth to ache. However, infection and bacteria is the most common reasons that causes a tooth to ache, and continue to ache! While there are many remedies that will temporarily relieve the pain, or lessen it's intensity, it is important to seek medical attention as soon as you possibly can. Infection, or bacteria that causes 90% of tooth aches can cause serious infections to enter your blood stream and travel throughout your entire body. Try taking some warm water and mixing it with apple cider vinegar, and a table spoon of salt, and swish it in your mouth vigorously concentrating on the are of your teeth that is in pain. Vinegar is a great product that can kill a lot of infection and bacteria instantly, relieving the intensity of the pain very quickly. Do this several times until you began to fill some relief. Remember that as well as this can work, it is only temporary until you can see a Dentist who can fix the underlying problem properly. Advil and ibuprofen work better than tylenol and asprin because they are anti flammatory which helps with the inflamation that could also be causing some of the pain as well!
Mouthwash with hydrogen peroxide gives immediate temporary relief.
Then get to the dentist as quickly as possible, and tell the greedy bastard to just pull it. Who can afford to save the tooth anymore?
We're all taking ibuprofen but while you wait for that to kick in and you don't have orajel, here's an option. Take an ice cube and hold it on the web between thumb and index finger on the same side as the tooth ache. (left side of your mouth hold ice on.left hand. I know it sounds crazy but I guess the nerves in your hand and jaw are connected. It'll work long enough for the pain pills to kick in. Right now I have no ibuprofen or orajel so I'm gonna try the cloves & tea bag. Hope Earl Grey works. My hand is frozen already but it knocked the pain back to a dull roar.
My fiance was experieincing a painful tooth ache. We were driving home from a weekend trip and he couldn.t stand the pain. He took so much pain medication and nothing helped. We tried choliseptic and that didnt help niehter did the oajel and that just made him MAD. When we got home I went to the store and picked up peperment tea bags, clove oil and ibuprophen. He took the medicen and then I dampended the tea bag with warm water and put a few drops of the clove oil on it. He put in on the tooth for about twenty minutes and whala it as like magic. The pain was gone.Oh after he took the tea bag out I put several drops of the oil on a cotter swab and made him put it on the infected area and NO pain. He said all the other stuff was not helping and now he can eat. Thank you for all of the advice>>>>it worked
brush your teeth gently with crest baking soda (whitening) . then crack open a tylenol pm *gel fast relief* or ibprofen and let saliva break the pill over yur tooth with pain then gargle!
My home remedy if for tooth aches. I have a bridge in the front of my mouth and one of the tooth on the bridge is starting to hurt because I have some swelling of the gum which seem to be an abcess with some infection around the tooth and gum. I would press down on it and it hurt really bad. So I was in pain and a thought came to me to get my apple cider vinegar and baking soda and a cotton swab(the small soft ball kind). I poured a small about of cider in a saucer then added a pinch of baking soda enough to make a paste. It will bubble up like peroxide but don't worry. Rub the cotton ball in the solution and put the pasty cotton ball under your gum where the tooth ache is between the gum and tooth. IT REALLY WORKS!!! it takes the sorness out too. Gud Luck try it till you can get to the dentist. God Bless
This has worked well for me, in spite of the fact that I was experiencing a huge amount of pain and swelling.
Use all of the below:
4 Ibuprofin tablets every 4 hours. Dosage is the equivelant of 2 perscription strength capsules. Use ibuprofin because it helps to relieve pain and it also reduces inflamation. Do not let it wear off, take every 4 hours.
2 childrens chewable tylenol tablets. Place these on the abcess and let them dissolve. The pain reliever is released directly to the site of the pain. You can do this up to 12 times in 4 hours.
3. 4 echinacea and 2 garlic tablets every 2 hours for the first 24 hours (both are 500 mg pills, so this is 2,000 mg's of the echinacea and 1,000 of the garlic). These are both natural antibiotics but you have to take a huge dose for the first day. Once you notice the actual infection starting to decrease cut back to 2 echinacea and 2 garlic every 2 hours. Then to every 4 hours after the third day, if you are still improving.
Brush a lot and then rinse with an antiseptic moutwash throughout this treatment.
The herbs and pain medicine may upset your stomach so take with some type of food. Yogurt is both helpful in relieving stomach upset and is easy to eat when you are in pain.
