Here is the truth so sit back and take it. There are a ton of home remedies but if your tooth is infected then you will need a root canal. This happens when bacteria gets under the tooth and the pulpit literally rots. So here is a way to tell if you are dealing with a cavity or a serious problem that will need professional help. Take an ice cube and place it on hour tooth. If you experience more pain than you ever thought possible then you most likely have a problem that wl require A root canal or a sime extraction. Also if heat to make it feel better you had better make an appointment. 6-8 advils and the pain should go away long enough for you to get 4 hours of sleep. I took 8 every four hours even though it's not good for hour liver. But i was considering ripping the tooth out myself ( that's how bad it hurt) if you pain is just. Cavity leaving an e posed nerve then try the other remedies. I know the kits they sell at the drug store for a temporary filling work great.
I had an abcessed tooth and a swollen lymph node on my chin due to the severity of the infection. Im allergic to Amox & Penn, not to mention that $ is so scarce these days. Cant afford a dentist. This is what killed the infection.
GSE- Grapefruit seed extract rinse
Activated charcoal poultice on tooth/gum
Raw garlic/pills - took 5,000 mg a day
Castor oil pack on node
Vitamin c - 4,000 mg a day
Cal/Mag - 6 capsules
Alfalfa- 600 mg/ 9 capsules
Super echinacea extract- 5 x per day
ACV- 2tbs / 3 x a day
Omega oil- 1000 mg 4 capsules/ a day
Cats claw/with mushroom defense
This got rid of my infection in 1 day the pain lasted no more than 5 hrs.

I could not afford a dentist but found out about carecredit.com a place that extends credit cards for dental work.
The receptionist told me so now I can go to a dentist to have my flipper replaced.
What helps the most is brushing my teeth when the pain is bad and putting a Tylenol on my gum and letting it be absorbed.
Thanks for all the ideas to relieve pain.
I agree with Sophia on the Golden Girls who said if God wanted us to eat things that decay our teeth he would have handed our teeth to us in a baggie.
Break a benadryl (or generic) CAPLET open onto a spoon, get it wet with either a little bit of water or saliva to make a paste. Use a q-tip or toothpick to put on the soar tooth. It taste nasty, but it numbed my first tooth ache for 6 months, now I am getting it pulled cause it hurts to much and looks gross.
I have had many dental problems. With and without insurance. And like most of you, I am scared to go to the dentist. Right now I am fighting a toothache at 3:54am after waking up at 3:00am in severe pain. This is what works for me.
2 advil and 2 tylenol, sometimes taking a third advil
This helps with the pain, though it never completely goes away. And I wouldnt suggest it, its a lot of medication and if I have a toothache for several days I will get an upset stomach from the medication.
My favorite thing that work for me (in no order)
Rice bag for heat
Abstract (doesnt matter what flavor, the more alcohol the better thats the purpose of the abstract)
Taking a warm shower and letting the warm water run over your tooth.
Taking your mind off the pain
Garlic capsules (they are a natural anti-biotic)
Warm liquids such as tea and coffee
or even room temp water.
When I have a toothache like now, usually I take some asprin, rub abstract (I use almond), heat up a rice bag and sit tight till I feel some relief. It hasnt come yet...
iv been suffering from a abscessed tooth for about two weeks now and haven't been able to eat or sleep. I've Tried everything and nothing works. i started looking through my kitchen and looked through my spices and seasonings and one that Ive found is McCormick Lemon and Herb it works really well i put it on my tooth and and about 2 mins later my toothache went away
I've literally tried everything but one thing that i found that works for me is a seasoning called lemon and herb by McCormick i used that and my toothache was gone after that.
i have been suffering from abcessed teeth for years now...when insurancee was useable for the dentist then...i just went and they fixed it...but know that my insurance no longer covers dental...my mother in law suggested that i use a q-tip and swab clove oil on the tooth, gum, and where ever the pain is (do not swallow)...this will burn your tongue, and lips if u get any on these 2 places...even though the taste is horrific...the tooth and infected area are numb (just like what the dentist uses before they pull a tooth)...i swear by this remedy...i rather take natural substances than one i'm worried about abusing...this will only take the pain away...but not the infection...
I am having the worst tooth pain right now because like a lot of you I don't get to the dentist and have bad teeth. Should've taken better care when I was younger.
Anyway, just wanted you to know that several of my dentists that I have went to said to NEVER EVER USE HYDROGREN PEROXIDE on a tooth. My Mom told me to do it and I told my dentist that and he said it may help at first but later, it will be the worst thing you've ever done. I don't remember why, he explained it but all I remembered was DO NOT USE HYDROGREN PEROXIDE ON A BAD TOOTH!
