904 Home Remedies for Abscessed Tooth


FOR SEVERE TOOTHACHE, THINLY slice or crush garlic and put on tooth and/or gums, pain should diminish within five minutes. Continue to reapply for up to one hour at first treatment. It will burn at first, and you don't want to leave the garlic on too long because fresh garlic can irritate your mouth. Stinks but it is a cheap and effective way to help with pain AND infection. Continue to reapply after meals and as needed at the first sign of pain, but be sure to rinse the mouth thoroughly aferwards to avoid irritation.
Clove OIL is also effective against pain, but not as easily available. Be sure to use Q tips to place ONLY on tooth/ area of pain.
FOR ABSCESS Tea bags probably won't help draw out the infection, except maybe echinacea or peppermint. Better to use a slice of onion placed inside the mouth at site of infection (yukky taste but great results). It should draw out the infection, which tastes and smells horrible anyway. You may wrap the onion in sterile gauze to avoid irritation. Never tried it, but baking soda should work also, as others have suggested. It is an effective drawing agent.
FOR AFFORDABLE CARE Check to see if there's a dental school nearby, or if you live anywhere near the Mexican border consider going over there where you can get a root canal for less than the cost of a pulled tooth over here. The dentists are no worse there than here, believe me.


Ok so this isnt exactly a 'home remedy' but if you have an abcess/infection and like always its the weekend when it starts killing you look in your medicine cabinet for some antibiotics almost everyone has a few left over from one thing or another you should google whatever you find to see if it will work. Penicillin and drugs in its family like amoxicillin , augmentin, etc. work best and thats what the dentist will give you Monday anyway and it'll work better and somtimes even faster than anything else ibuprofen helps alot too because its an anti-inflammatory. I know all about the overuse of antibiotics and don't care to hear any lectures about it. If you dont like my advice just dont take it. I simply know how horrible tooth pain can be and if this solution hasn't occured to someone perhaps the suggestion could help them get some relief. You should know though that the pain will most likely come back if you don't see the dentist to fix the problem and this is just a temporary solution. So good luck and I hope everyone in pain will feel better really soon I know its terrible.


I have horrible teeth due to medication I was on for a while and the two things that help meare severe pain Orajel and Nuprin throat spray. Good luck trust me when I say I feel your pain....


I put toothpaste on the tooth that hurts ... it works if the pain is due to a cavity... or rinse with mouthwash


I am begging you all to PLEASE GET THAT TOOTH CHECKED OUT IF YOUR ABSCESS GETS WORSE. I just spent 5 days in the hospital last week after emergency surgery as a result of using home remedies and delaying getting it looked at. By that point, it was about the size of a tennis ball and was pressing on my wind pipe. I had my neck cut open and tooth removed to drain the abscess and laid in a bed with drainage tubes in my neck and mouth. The removal of these tubes will be one of the most painful things in your life. I still have to wear gauze over the drainage hole in my neck until it fully heals. If the problem is money, talk to your local hospital. If you get checked at the E.R., most hospitals have a 'free care' program for those who fall above the medicaid guidelines, but can not afford insurance. This means after filling out some annoying paperwork, YOU PAY NOTHING. If the problem is minor, continue using whatever remedy works for you. DO NOT use any form of temporary dental filling. This creates a seal, much like a pressure cooker with a lid on it. This causes no place for the abscess to drain. This was part of my downfall. If things don't get better after a couple of days, GET CHECKED OUT! I hope this is helpful for some of you.


I just want to say thank you to the person that recommended the 4 ibuprofen and 2 acetaminophen tablets. The pain that had kept me in bed for an entire day literally disappeared!!! I had tried everything and nothing else worked.


ok i gotta say this it is 2am and my gum is hurting so i though i would look up remedies now i read alot of remedies but i find this really work take a galic clove and smash it and put on ur gum it works


I had a tooth filling or shall i say gutted out then filled, but i dont think dentist did a good job because its about 5 maybe 6 months later & my tooth is killing me. Well simply as this seems, I just kept drinking water everytime I got a sensation of pain coming & I made it thru the day with ease, now everytime I stop the card I had to use the bathroom but at lease there was no pain.


I have been having a severe pain in my whole mouth for several months and tried the vanilla and the tylenol and the ibuprofen and the listerine and the orajel. Not all at once but one at a time. The severe pain orajel helped for a while and now it doesnt do much for long. I tried the vanilla and it helped a little, I also tried the peroxide to no avail. I just tried the listerine and it hasnt helped. the tylenol and ibuprofen dont last long. I think I`m going to head to the store for some cloves. Hope it works because now my ears are pulsing because of the pain.
