Ok, here I am to tell my story. When I was a young woman I had thyroid cancer. I did have surgery but because of the lack of certain hormones my teeth started to decay. Now, I am 51 and cancer free.

But, I do on occasion have trouble with abscessed teeth. I think I have found the miracle cure for abscessed teeth and the pain associated with them.

As you know an abscessed tooth or gum boil is an infection and inflammation of soft tissue which can be extremely painful.

If you cannot afford to go to the dentist and get antibiotics and or pain medication this is what I recommend:

These spices work the best .... garlic, turmeric, ginger, coriander, black pepper, cumin, cinnamon, cloves.

For the pain, I crush whole cloves into a fine powder. Then I add cinnamon and ginger powder, I use about 1 TBS of cloves and 1 tsp of each of the other ingredients. Mix them up and put them in empty tea bags. I pour the tea out and refill them with my spices. Then I use 2 tablespoons of pure vanilla in 1/4 cup of water. I microwave the vanilla and water and steep the teabag with the spices in it until it comes to a boil. I let this sit until it cools off ... and you can use a Q Tip to put the mixture on your tooth. You can also use the bag on the affected area. It is easily stored in the ice box in a baby food jar or ? It is better than Red Cross and lasts longer.

Always use Ice pack on your cheek instead of the heat. Heat will cause the infection to spread and it also causes blood vessels to dilate which makes you throb ! Ice reduces inflammation and swelling and also numbs your cheek and jaw. It also reduces the blood flow and slows the spread of infection.

Now for the infection part ...Rice is a natural starch which when cooked with the right spices can work as an antibacterial or antibiotic. Internally and directly. Hot rice is also a comfort food which relaxes you and helps you sleep.

I have a recipe for rice and broccoli that I swear by when you have an abscessed tooth ! ( It works I swear ! )

2cups of basmati rice rinsed & soaked for 30 mins then drain.

Put about 1/4 cup of butter or margerine in a pot and heat

Add to the butter about 1/2 cup finely chopped onion and 2 TBS of minced garlic

Cook these until very soft. When done add the rice and about 3 cups of water.

Then add 2tbs of ginger, 1tbs coriander, 1 tbs turmeric, 1tbs cumin,1/4tsp of cloves,1tbs salt, 1tbs black pepper.

Give it all a good stir and then add broccoli flowers and 1 can sliced carrots. Let it cook until rice and veggies are tender. You can add extra butter if you like.

Serve this warm ... you will notice right away that it has a sort of numbing effect and it will feel good on your tooth or gums. Eat a good sized bowl of it and you will automatically have a sense of well being. It will also relax you and make you sleepy if you are not careful. It will make you feel all warm inside as well.

The starch in the rice along with the turmeric and salt will help draw the poison out of the abscess. It will also kill the bacteria. The garlic, ginger and other ingredients will work as a pain killer. And it is soft easy to chew and good for you ...

You should always keep these spices handy and include them in your diet. They are good for your blood pressure and heart. They are also good for digestion, and they help keep you from catching the common cold and a sore throat. Oh they are also wonderful antioxidants !!!

PS ... the more ginger and garlic you use the better it is for pain.

This is what works the best and fastest for me and it only takes about 35 minutes to make !


Vanilla Extract for an abscessed tooth -- just swished around my mouth for a minute or so (had no QTips) -- and it worked -- almost instantly!! Still tender and sore, but the swelling has gone tremendously and 12 hours later is still down. Have since seen the dentist and am getting my antibiotics -- but at midnight last night - this was a lifesaver. Thanks to all posted!


I am used to PAIN, for I have LUPUS and CHRONIC PAIN from other things. I am on Morphine and let me tell you***IT DID NOTHING FOR THE TOOTH PAIN!! I cracked and broke a upper left back tooth on Friday and had it removed. ALL weekend I was in more pain than when I started! I suffered all weekend, finally went back to dentist today only to find out I had DRY Socket and infection started. Started ANTibiotics, and he packed the tooth with medicine... OUCH got worse until I found this site and pack cloves onto a Pepperment tea bag... I AM PAIN FREE the cloves numb the area.. now with cold/heat packs I may get some sleep at 8 in the morning.


I can't believe I am going to say this... I was in total disbelief that the tea bag would work... Being in severe pain, and my dental not kicking in until the first I was desperate... I used a black tea teabag ran it under HOT water for about 2 minutes, and placed it on my tooth for about 15 minutes... Since I am pregnant, and this pregnancy isn't going smooth as it is, I didn't swallow any of the tea (which led to a bit if drooling lol, thank goodness Hubby is underway for 2 weeks) needless to say, THE PAIN IS GONE! I mean completely gone... I've been using orajel liquid literally every 10-30 minutes for days, along with tylenol and that didn't even provide me nearly as much relief as this did... Granted the tea kinda tastes funny in tea bag form, but trust me, ITS WORTH IT!!!


The mint extract really helped numb the pain in my husband's mouth abcess. Thanks for the tip!


I have had teeth problems for as far as i can remember. I used to have health Insurance but, getting older pays many prices. I like sweets every now and then, and because of this craving I have been developing abscessed teeth problems for a few months now and I had to figure something out! I'm not a fan of pain killers because I become too dependent, and the long term effects are not worth it. Drinking Chamomile or peppermint tea has always been able to calmed me down in times of stress and frustration. One day I decided to rest the tea bag on my accessed tooth. I did it at least 5 times a day for about three days and before I knew it my abscess was gone and I was eating without any pain. It really works, I would definitely recommend it and its one of the most natural ways to go. And I should also say STAY AWAY FROM TOO MUCH SUGAR!


I've experience toothace before and i'm 17. I'm from the Uk and i'm under 18 so it's free for my dental care. I had one molar taken out last september on the day of my birthday (meant i couldn't drink alcohol that night). But i skipped my appointment for another tooth removal about a week ago by accident. I was lying in bed and was unable to sleep tonight and just like in the past, my gum started swelling into an abcess. I don't have any Ibuprofen left but i'm currently on amoxicllin. I have just started to take it and have to wait a good few hours for my next.

I've found that washing your mouth out with salt does help but only for about 15-20 mins, and it doesn't do a lot anyways. The teabag method is great, i recommend it. Soak a teabag in hot water for a few mins then put it on your sore tooth and it takes some of the pain away. Go brush and rinse with mouthwash to make sure evrything's clean. I'd try the whiskey method but i have none left!


Here is my situation, bad genetics run in my family for not so great teeth. I brush twice a day religously. Yet, my molars break off piece by piece. I have no insurance to help mitigate expenses. Anyway, it does get to the point where the tooth will rot away till a nerve is exposed, gross I know. But it is to prove I know the intensity of tooth pain, til it makes you wanna bunch up into a ball on a bed or couch and bust out balling. Then I break down and go have it pulled at a 100 bux a tooth. Anyway, this one measure has helped me out for the last 3 years or so. Its a combination of Water and 'Orajel - Antiseptic Mouth Sore Rinse 16 fl oz bottle', white in color and cost around 8-9 bux, and Wal Mart does carry it. I swish my mouth vigorously with cold water a couple three times and stop periodically to hold pressure against affected tooth. Then poor a little bit of the Orajel mouth rinse into the cap, about to the 2nd or 3rd thread and swish vigorously for about 2-3 minutes, every so often pause with pressure on affected tooth and let it sit and foam and swish around some more. Then spit, keep a cup near by to continue spitting, some how the spitting repeatedly helps me. I've found personally that acetaminphen or excedrin helps me greatly vs ibuprofen or aleve. I usally will pop 4-5 of acetaminphen at once or 3 excedrin, as I am a big guy, 6' 4' bout 300 lbs just for the record. With the Orajel mouth rinse it may take up 4-5 rinse cycles to kick in but it really does work for me. Fortunately, I've been prescribed for vicodin due to low back troubles. But the vicodin doesn't always help. I hope this helps out someone, as this remedy has helped more than once, especially when I needed to go to sleep.
