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.

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.

Pure peppermint extract works wonders on relieving tooth pain, if you can get past the absolutely disgusting taste. Just pour a capful, and try to pour it directly over the tooth that hurts, and swish it for as long as you can, then spit it out. Chances are you'll find yourself drooling for a bit, and with a horrible taste in your mouth, but it really works for taking away immediate pain.

So I have ALWAYS had horrible teeth. I have never had my teeth cleaned by the dentist, I have had crowns before but have always made every excuse in the world to go to the dentist, I HATE it. So anyways, My back tooth broke basically in half a few months ago, the pain was UNBEARABLE. So many sleepless nights and tears shed over this damn tooth. Well I finally managed to pay out of pocket for the extraction. The pain was gone.... Until my OTHER back tooth breaks and this time its WORSE. The broken edge of my tooth is cutting my gums and is causing about a hundred times more pain. Well I cant manage to scrounge another 300-500 bucks for another extraction, so I tried ibuprofen which is whata I used to take for my other toothache but I am like IMMMUNE to it now. OUCH. So I just bought a tube of oragel its now 10:42pm. I cake on about 1/4 of the tube on my tooth. It seemed to be working until I started typing and the pain is starting to come back. Oh dear god what will fix this?!
