904 Home Remedies for Abscessed Tooth


I've had a broken lower molar for years but have rarely had any trouble out of it. A couple days ago I woke up in horrible pain. My typical solution was to basically suck the infection out. It hurts but it's always been successful. By making sure you sort of pressurize your mouth and get all the saliva out of your mouth and suck on your infected tooth, it pulls the infection out. If it happens, you'll definitely feel it. It will scare you when it 'pops' and the side of your face may throb for a minute but when the throbbing stops, so does ALL the pain. You're mouth will taste disgusting from the infection and you'll be able to smell something that may smell like dog or cow manure coming from your mouth that lasts for just a few seconds. When my pain started, I sucked on my tooth all day and nothing ever happened so I tried alternate methods. The tea bags may of helped but they also made my tooth throb even more. Ibuprofen helped. All ambesol and orajel does is numb everything but the tooth pain - in my mouth anyway. All day I went through 4 tea bags and swished warm water and sea salt around in my mouth. I woke up at 6:30 in the morning from the pain. I tried sucking on my tooth and the first try it worked. I went to the bathroom and stood at the sink spitting blood and puss for about 5 minutes. I felt better after the throbbing stopped. I tried poking my gum with a needle and it only made my gum bleed so I trashed that idea. Vanilla extract on a q-tip applied directly to the broken tooth. That made the top half of my tooth feel better but not the main pain. The next day I had some left over pain and spent all day compulsively sucking on my tooth. Every time I do it, I taste more infection coming out. Whatever method you choose, good luck.


You guys this really works i had a bad wisdom tooth and it hurt like crazy my sister who is a lpn told me to use warm water and salt swish your mouth with it before bed and i promise you it will work and also that red cross works to but if it's really bad go to a dentist i'm going tomorrow and i juist tried the extrat and it don't help


I was desperate for relief, like most everyone on this post I have no INS. and no money and our ER will not deal with draining abscesses. I tried the pin solution and after several pokes I did get it to bleed a bit but that is all and it did not lessen the swelling. I am on antibiotics ( thanks for the vet supply info)and will weight to see if after a few days the swelling goes down. I did follow instructions but guess I didn't hit the right spot. If someone can please explain how to find it I am listening.


tryed a lot these things , nothing worked. i have an infected wisdom tooth & moler and the one beside it. ya 3 all side by side,on the top.i have got no sleep at all this week. swishing salt water seemed to work,but i think its all in my head. you know it will clean & steralize so therefor you think it will work.maybe the first time! I found the one thing that really , really workes. i hate going to the dentist too,but pain started around the middle of dec 2009,it's now june 23 2009 ouch. i need some sleep,so i maned up and went to the dentist, the nice man did not hert me,he gave me a scrip for clindamycin & a scrip for oxycodone. what a nice guy. going back in 3 days to get my teeth taken out.good by pain. good luck , i am 40 and i have had broken & rotten teath for atleast 20 years.igot 2 out 1 & a half years ago. pain gone. get em fixed or taken out. it onley hirts for a little bit.


i have had infected tooth since new years,i used white vinager,swish around bad tooth,(3-4times or more)as many times as you can stand.spit out each time.when you cant stand the tast,put lots peanut butter{cake it on). i used about 1 cup of vinager,finger loaded with peanut butter. i did this just before 4am,it is 6:15am.made me feel better.good luck,


I dipped some q-tips in both whiskey and vanilla extract and let it sit on the gum for awhile. After doing this about 10 times, the pain definitely began to subside. I also combined this with 3 motrin (or ibuprofin).


osha root good for abcesses. get at asin or organic food store. peel off piece of root chew (tastes awful but worth it) then pack into hole where abcess is and leave till you bcan stand it or it starts to break up can swallow juice (acts as stimulant)but i dont, too nasty.


The pain I have is mostly in the jaw ear and neck area. My husband said a pharmacist told him to use sudafed. It made sense that it would help dry up sinuses and relieve some of the pressure so I tried it and it did help. Be careful though if you have other health issues like high blood pressure, heart disease, etc.


I had a Horrible acident where i rolled 5 times. shook all the teeth in my head. That was a year ago and now all my teeth are bad. I have tried the onion and garlic , the peroxide, the teabag... welll lets say alot. right now I have a garlic oil pill on my tooth and gums. NO PAIN and Swelling sunsiding. I am seeing on oral surgeon to have them removed and get dentures due to this accident... however... I could not afford a dentist either til i foind out it was a medicle issue for me because of the accident. GARLIC in any form helps a great great deal! Onions as well tastes bad I know but works!


Thank u everyone! I may sleep a few hrs tonight. First I swished eith warm salt water then tequila then some grey goose and the horrible pain in my teeth is greatly reduced!
