904 Home Remedies for Abscessed Tooth

I hate the dentist

I read
All sorts of things to do from home. I tried
Oral gel, brushing, chew onion (works). My back teeth are killing me only at night. To the point I can't sleep. Reading this site!!! I saw someone
Said olive oil... So of
Course I ran to the kitchen!!! Tried swishing little around. I felt some relief, so I tried a little more.. Felt even better. Poured a whole mouth full. I feel zero pain... For how long??? Idk! I'm going to bed though!


I know ALL to well of this type of excruciating pain. I just made it to the other side if it. Thank GOD! Here is what worked for me:

Lukewarm water

1. Mix about 8oz lukewarm water and salt (regular table salt) together, it should be really salty. .

2. Swish the mixture around in your mouth, specifically around the affected area for approximately 2 mins ( do this twice)

3. Pray

After doing this, I felt almost instantaneous relief.


After reading a couple of remedies here I decided that I need to post this for those suffering from severe tooth pain. I get sick of practitioners preaching about getting yourself professional help while they sit laughing and wagging thier necks side to side in the fashion dashboard bobblehead. The reason some are so desparate and grasping for answers is because they are unable to finance such services, dental pain from repeated cracked teeth, reduced enamel, full blown infection is without a doubt one of the most miserable experiences I have had to endure; if you think I don't know what what pain is then know this I've survived 3rd degree burns over 36 percent of my body. Now then, I hope not to invite those addle brained practitioners who fail to understand that some of us are so stupid as to not know that paying a major portions of years earnings or skipping this months rent is not an option at the moment time to some kind of pissing match in defense of those who just want relief until those who cannot empty their account or wallet in order to receive help from a professional at the moment but I do wish those condescending professionals would offer the kind of advice I am about to give and try to empathise with those that are in pain which they as practitioners will never have to undergo. So yes cloves do help but not whole or powdered, get clove bud oil, or eugenol containing oil in high concentration use a qtip saturated with the oil and place it as close to the site of infection as you can and invite the sting that it will deliver hold it as long as you can break only as long as nessesary because the next application will not hurt near as much and within fifteen minutes you should feel relief. The essential oil I keep on hand is Aura Casia -pure essential oils and is 75 percent eugenol. There are warnings against internal use, women who are pregnant and other cautions but I can tell you this gargling all the salt aspirin and tylenol never helped a bit, this did. It cost me about $ 7.00 at a local store in Anchorage Alaska called the natural pantry and After a day 15mins I could think again a day of periodic use and it was almost unnoticeable and in 3 days I the my misery was a distant memory. I hope that clove oil helps alleviate some others from the mind bending torture that is tooth pain.

I've read over 40 pages of the remedies listed here. I've tried EVERYTHING listed (minus a few due to unavailability of some of the more exotic items).

What's been working for my upper right 2nd to last BADLY abscesses tooth is Listerine. It's the absolute only thing that literally took the immense pain away within 5 seconds. And I'm also on 1g Oxycodone. The narcotics don't relieve nearly as well as the Listerine. One note: it MUST contain alcohol to work at all!

Also, a few times a day I numb the tooth with ice wrapped in cloth- I bite down on the chunk of wrapped ice for as long as possible. Ones it's frozen cold it is pain free for a few beautiful minutes. Listerine lasts about 15 minutes so keep it handy. Still thinking of trying to lance it but I am mortified of the subsequent pain that may cause..

I have had an abcessed wisdom tooth on my left top side for a pretty long time now, I didn't have dental insurance when it began and I didn't notice it much. now I currently do and am getting it removed next month, it has been the worst pain ever recently and I've almost been in tears over the pain, I'm scared to have it removed because of the pain involved but it will be worth it to not feel this pain everyday.
These are the things I've been doing for pain relief so I can sleep just until I get it removed.
I put an ice pack on my cheek for a few mins, chew or bite down on something soft (I use a teething ring that I got as a gift for my son but never opened or been used before) it works amazingly. Even if it looks silly to use!
Use orajel, and then position my pillow right above my cheekbone or just lay on that cheek.
After doing all of this I've been able to sleep so much better.

I suspect that anacardic acids would kill Streptococcus and Staphylococcus bacteria and other gram positive infections such as anthrax.
I have found that the anacardic acids in raw cashew nuts and maybe mangoes do an excellent job of curing an abscess from gram positive bacteria, which are the most prevalent cause of tooth decay and tooth aches . It is also discussed briefly in the 2005 edition of Medical Hypotheses, 65; 289-292.
I would like to urge you to explore making these medicines available in the pure form from pharmacies for a Streptococcus medicine or in tooth paste. This would have several advantages; 1. a variety of application methods would be possible, needles, brushes, swabs, sprays, and etc. 2. It would probably eliminate allergy. 3. It would probably be less expensive than cashews. 4. It would be easier to apply massively locally. 4. It would be easier to test against the pathogenic species involved. 5. It would be more emotionally acceptable to the medical profession who tend to prefer chemicals over anything as amateurish as natural products. 6 It would be easier to control amounts. 7. It would be easier to carry it on camping trips, etc. 7. It would probably have an infinite shelf life.
Anacardics would be much more effective in killing decay bacteria than fluoride and without the dangerous side effects . This would be especially valuable since these medicines would probably prove to be valuable against other gram positive diseases such as acne, leprosy, Streptococci, Staphylococcus aureus, anthrax, Listeria monocytogenes, Actinomyces naeslundi, Corynebacterium diphtheriae, Streptococcus agalactiae, Propionibacterium spp, and maybe even tuberculosis as well.
Acute Streptococcus pyogenes infections may present as pharyngitis (strep throat), scarlet fever (rash), impetigo (infection of the superficial layers of the skin) or cellulitis (infection of the deep layers of the skin). Invasive, toxigenic infections can result in necrotizing fasciitis, myositis and streptococcal toxic shock syndrome. Patients may also develop immune-mediated post-streptococcal sequelae, such as acute rheumatic fever and acute glomerulonephritis, following acute infections caused by Streptococcus pyogenes. Streptococcus pyogenes produces a wide array of virulence factors and a very large number of diseases. Virulence factors of Group A streptococci include: (1) M protein, fibronectin-binding protein (Protein F) and lipoteichoic acid for adherence; (2) hyaluronic acid capsule as an immunological disguise and to inhibit phagocytosis; M-protein to inhibit phagocytosis (3) invasins such as streptokinase, streptodornase (DNase B), hyaluronidase, and streptolysins; (4) exotoxins, such as pyrogenic (erythrogenic) toxin which causes the rash of scarlet fever and systemic toxic shock syndrome.

my boyfriend has had a killer toothache for some days now, n he said its the most painful one he's ever had..and after trying all what i knew for treatments,i went online for more home remedy solutions ..and found that a couple drops of {warm olive oil} in the ear on the same side of toothache with a q-tip, instantly stopped his toothache..{herbal/italian olive oil} is suggested..this is the most quickest toothache relief i ever seen take effect so fast n at the same time is also only temporary..especially when there's a exposed nerve..i just read that eating a few pieces of bread will help stop the air from hitting that open nerve and using a denture glue to cover the hole and protect anything from entering is a really good idea that im gona try if he has another more thing i'd like to share with ya'll about really painful toothaches is...dont hold your breath & dont lean forward, kinda like your head between your legs position..DO NOT DO EITHER ONE!!! very frustrating but try to b as calm as possible n breathe in & out your nose only so the air doesn't piss it off again..when you hold your breath or lean your head down wards,what happens? your blood rushes to your head n it goes straight to that weak spot in your mouth causing it to ache n act if ever you wonder why the remedies aren't that's because your're holding your breath n leaning forward causing your blood to rush to soon to fast..
i hope i helped even if for just a minute..
And remember to not b mean but b MEANINGFUL...

Try Kyolic Garlic from the health food store for prevention and as interventive natural antibiotic! You can research it online. This stuff is great for any bacterial infection.

Kyolic garlic is a natural, super-aged garlic. Don't take straight though; it tastes AWFUL, and I love garlic. Fill one or two clear vegetable capsules (also available at health food store) two or three times per day for a week or more to clear an abscess. Once I took more than this per day to clear an earache but got super sick to my sick to my stomach and had diarrhea and threw up. So I stick to the recommended amount now. Ask at the health food store if you are unsure. It probably also helps to take it with food.

You will also need to address the pain. I do natural topical treatments plus oral meds.
