Ok...I tried everything...but my pain was caused by an infection under the tooth....stage two before capping my tooth. So finally I tried a couple of remedies - as a all in one cure. Take a tea back...I used peppermint first round and plain old lipton second....I pour oral jel, whiskey and valnilla on the teaback, rolled it up and stuck it between my jaw and teeth. At best it stopped the throbbing...can't wait until the drugstore opens in the morning to pick up the antibiotics that should do the trick....since the bottom line is an infection I am sure. For nowthe tea bag is a miracle worker.
If you are reading this, my heart goes out to because I'm in incredible pain too. I'm putting in my two cents for anybody in my situation. Young man, no money, cupboards dont have any of the items you most often read about here, being a young bachelor I dont often find a use for vanilla extract clove oil. But what I DO have is tooth paste, and rubbing some on the problem DID being some minor relief. Now I'm still in a fair amount of pain, but 10 minutes ago I was clutching my head, rolling on the floor, trying not cry. I would also like to say that I STRONGLY ADVISE AGAINST THE SALT WATER METHOD. That was one of, if not THE most intense pain I've ever felt. Whoever came up with that has probably shaken a baby or two....good luck, feel better.
Vanila extract I have been suffering since friday with severe pain on my bottom lower right.It's now monday night late. Due to a tooth snapping in half and the root left in with the remainder of filling bits sticking up i have now developed an absess and deep infection. Dentist are harder to get hold of on the weekend and to find out my dentist is away for two weeks i was left with little comfort. Apart from affording it. I was prepared to get a tweezers and try and dig it out The pain being off the rickter scale feels like I have all my bottom teeth on the right hand side infected. I now have antibotics but reduced to tears with an eardrum and lower face that feels like it's going to blow off I googled in desperation. I find often people who are experiencing the pain have solutions and this site is amazing thank you. The Vanilla extract immediately calm it down for 10minutes to a five rather than 12 early minutes I know. But, I have had 17 Nurofen plus today. I drinking the peppermint tea and then will place a tea bag on. At least hopefully I will get some sleep I love you all for sharing your stories and advice keep up the good work. Dentist should read this to understand alternative pain relief I will let you know how the rest of my night goes but thank you.
Yvey extremely grateful.
baby orajel works wonders
Have been in the most excrutiating pain for a week now, 2 trips to emergency dentist and 2 lots of antibiotics, the last visit put clove oil in the tooth and covered it til infection goes and then it needs ripping out, trouble is now it feels like I have 3 abcesses on 3 different teeth and my nose and eye are tingling and tender, am finding it hard to swallow but when I look in my mouth etc cant see the abcesses to pop them...only relief is taking 4 ibuprofen and 2 paracetamol codiene together. will be ringing dentist up again tomorrow to beg them to remove tooth now Ive seen how dangerous it is if the infection is spreading.
You need Oral B Superfloss and Tea Tree Oil. You put one or two drops on the floss and start flossing the infected area. Rinse. This works really good and it is also great to prevent an infection. I do it a couple times a day, even if it hurts and bleeds.
Do not swallow!
up at all hours of the night with my distraught fiance, i went through like five pages on here, the house was practically empty, we tried the salt water,nothing. Then we put vinilla extract on a cotton ball and he held it on the tooth it soothed the pain i dont know for how long he ran to bed hoping to fall asleep before the pain returned.. Thank you everyone.. good luck.
My tooth has been hurting me off and on since getting a filling 6 weeks ago then on Friday afternoon I had to leave work because the pain was unbearable. Oxycotin did nothing t3 did nothing Chronic-(kush) did nothing went on this site the tea bag and salt with baking powder pack work amazing thanks
I purchased a tube of Oraljel for mouth sores because it has an anticeptic in it. I took a little piece of paper towel, about an inch-x-inch square,squirt a line in the square, fold it and place it directly on the abscess. Not only does it numb but the antiseptic goes strait to the infection. I left it on for about a half hour and repeated it every hour. Only because I was doing this blind.. Also Unlike an antibiotic that you have to take for a few days. The blood flow that goes to the tooth is so small that its difficult for a good amount of antibiotic to get to the source of the pain. I have a crown and an abscess just popped up,I have been taking antibiotics for 3 day and it was not helping. With a little research I found out about the Oraljel. Well it wasn't exactly Oraljel I was suppose to use but the product that had been suggested was no where to be found. I got the information from a sight called Toothandteeth. Very good sight. Last night I had an awful fat abscess And I did the treatment stated and the abscess is almost gone and my face is no longer swollen...Goodluck.
I hope all you folks using the home abcess remedies as something to tide you over for a brief time just until you get to the dentist.
I carried around a pair of bad wisdom teeth for a bit, and let me tell you there is no answer better than appropriate medical help. Turned out I had abcesses with both of them, and in the few days before I went to the dentist, nothing worked to alleviate the pain.
