I was in a lot of pain, on a scale of 1 to 10, about a 15. The infection started in my left upper bicuspid, favorite tooth to chew with. Eating popcorn one day, and bit down to hard. Within 1/2 hour, I was ready to rob a bank for smack. I tried every thing, including everything on this site, then I dug up some old (very old. That girlfriend left years ago.) Ginseng, Peppermint, Cinnamon, Echinecea tea. Now it's the first thing I grab when my achy-breaky tooth hollers.
Rice bags are one of the best ways to get immediate relief of tooth pain, if you dont have a traditional rice bag grab a CLEAN sock fill it with rice tie off at the end and microwave until hot. I swear by this the moist heat from the rice takes pressure off your sinuses which could be causing more pain and also offers immediate relief for your tooth. Although temporary it works great!
Ok....so I've tried salt water, garlic, even volume...but nothing seems to keep the pain away....it might simmer down....but I still have the feeling of going to the dentist immediately......I cry.....sometimes even feel angry.......today I went to a local liquor store just for a pain reliever......and found RED CROSS Toothache.....best thing ever....well besides a root canal.....its about 8 o' clock.....I tried it at 3......still no signs of a pain creep.......to everyone...please try this......better than any home remedy........its the next best thing to seeing the dentist......I promise it'll make u think u don't even need to go.......but we all kno the best thing is to go in.......which I am doing tomorrow......but seriously it'll hold u until u feel like going......because we all know we don't want to be under dentistry tools......lol.....RED CROSS Toothache......it has components of a brown bottle containing the liquid.......a box of cotton pellets.....tweezers.......u will love it.........by the way I've been dealing with this for 2years........and its the best thing ever
Here's my story, I had all my upper teeth pulled ten years ago and had a denture put in. A few years later I had a wisdom tooth come in. I lost my job and didn't have insurance anymore so I just lived with is. Yesterday it became abscessed. Today it swelled so bad that I couldn't talk without my denture trying to slip out. I will not go without it in public. I came home and brushed it with my tooth brush until I got it popped. Yes, it hurt, but I was already in pain, so, so what. After I got it to bleed, I squeezed as much out as I could while rinsing with cold water until it was clear, then swished peroxide around. That was about 30 minutes ago, and now I know I'll be able to eat tonight without the pain
pepermint spirit food flavoring works in minutes and last for 4 to 5 hours use q-tip to apply but be carefull not to get it on your lip it burns, my pain on a scale of 1 to 10 was 15 and with in minutes of putting pepermint spirit on infected area pain level droppd to about 3 sleep soon took over, it worked.
Sex is a great remedy no lie it works the longer u have sex the longer the toothache say away
Ipsab Herbal Gum Treatment by Heritage Products. Can be gotten online if not at your health food stores. Does it for me every time. Use Q-tip and smear on gum. Usually completely gone by 3rd application.
Oh My god, I have been in agony for 2 days, last night i had no sleep and today i have been crying all day from the pain. This is my 3rd absessed tooth in five years. I have already had two root canals which although we are told they are painless they are excrutiating. I have been to the doctors and was given strong painkiller and antibiotics.... nothing worked. Came on this site and whoala!!! I haver just tried 3 things swilling with warm salt water. swilling with antiseptic mouth wash and garlic cloves, the swilling did relieve pain but as soon as i placed garlic cloves on was amazing after 10 minutes the painful throbbing had gone and i was in no pain. I am still going dentist tomorrow knowing from my previous absesses that the pain will return if i dont get it sorted. But thank you to this site!!
Everybody and anybody who recommended tea bags. THANK YOU so much! I've been in such agonizing pain for a few days now. Can't get to DR or Dentist til next week and haven't been able to sleep. After reading on here I figured I'd try the easiest and cheapest suggestion and bought some tea bags. brewed a cup and drained the bag slightly wadded it up and chomped down on it. The warmth was amazing to soothe and the natural medicinal use of tea really helped relieve a lot of the pressure. I knew to use tea for eye problems but would've never thought for the pain relief of a bad tooth! If you find yourself on here reading how to relief the pain try it i paid less than a dollar fifty for store brand black tea and it was amazing! and again thank you to all who suggested this!!
Ok, i HAD to post because today is the first day i've woken up pain free or slept pretty decent in about a week. Half my mouth is swollen and half my head has been hurting. Started taking ibuprofen and aleve but that stopped working at the beginning. Tried loritab with the other two and that would help for about an hour and the pain would come back. Finally went to the er the other night and the gave my vicodin but that was a joke and didn't help at all. Spent about an hour on this site the other night and thought most of the thing would just make it worse but i was desperate last night to sleep. The pain has been so bad i couldn't even lay down an tried propping myself up on pillows to sleep. After an hour of no relief and not being able to even doze off this is what i tried.
I gargled with warm salt water for about a minute, which i added a few drops of vanilla to (mostly because the salt water makes me gag)
I have a heat pad thing that you can put in the microwave and i warmed it for about 2mins and put in on my face and neck and it was like magic when the pain seemed to melt away.
Don't know exactly what it was but something sure helped and i had to share and hope it helps someone else out there.
Tooth pain is the worst pain ever and if you've found this site i hope you can find relief soon.
