I disolved an asprin with a few drops of Almond extract. The Almond extract did burn my toung, but my pain is gone. I tried advil, tylonl, and even a vicodin and nothing worked. The asprin and almond mixed placed directly on my tooth, which is getting a root canal tomarrow, stopped the pain.
I applied the solution with a q-tip.
Use this if desperate but be careful.


Just by accident I found that bananas help me. Like others, it hurt so bad I was almost in a panic, so having not eaten in a couple days I ate a banana and it did ease the pain a great deal, only lasted for about a half hour though. Definately going to try some of the other remedies on here.


I tried a lot of these things. Nothing worked for me except for whiskey. I just let it set on there till the burning sensation goes away and spit it out. My pain has gone from a 10 to at least a 2. Good temporary relief till I see the dentist in couple days.


This worked great for me,mix baking soda,sea salt,peroxide,add a drop of tea tree oil, drop of goldenseal,then soak it on a cotton ball ,place it on the gums close to the affect tooth, keep it there for a hour or so. then you can rinse your mouth with sea salt water. then take vitiam c 1000mg & garlic 1000mg ,this is to kill the infection internally. the swelling around my tooth was down in about two hrs. pain relief was almost immediate. I will continue this routine for a day or so , till the infection & pain are gone. good luck to all!


The teabag method actually works!! I used peppermint teabags (peppermint is a great natural pain killer). I then remembered an elixir called Maria Treben's 'Swedish Bitters'. You can get this from the Health Food Store. Just saturate cotton wool/small amount of kitchen towel with it and place it on the abcess. I finally had a good nights sleep. I've only applied it once today (at 09:00) and it's now 19:00 and I'm able to cope. The selling comes down and it deals with the pain too as well as cleaning the wound. Tastes like c**p but worth the minor discomfort. I can finally go back to work tomorrow!

Just take salt and dab it on to your affected area. IF that didnt work dab vanilla extract on to it. Then play a game or your wii to take your mind off of it.


I have been in pain for days...prob killed my liver with all the motrin i've put me on an antibiodic and tylenol 3 with codine....needless to say it still didn't help with the pain tonight. I decided to google how to treat this pain and saw a method that involved using a dry tea bag...after ransacking my kitchen I found a box of peppermint tea bags tucked one between my cheek and gums and have enjoyed an almost painless hour now...thanks for the ideas.


chlorhexidine solution!!!!! for those of you fortunate enough to get to the dentist, ask him for some and keep it on hand. mine came with a refill and a shelf life of a year. knocked my pain out instantly.


I was suffering from pain in my wisdom tooth and overnight my gums around the wisdom tooth got sollen. In the morning I could barely see my wisdom tooth because there was so much swelling plus the area felt numb. I did the folliwng which is an age old remedy:

1. I put about 5 whole cloves both sides of the mouth (this stings for a bit but instantly reduces the pain)

2. I put a pack of ice on my cheek where the tooth was paining and felt the pain reduce

3. After the swelling had come down significantly with the above and I could finally see my wisdom tooth, I put a green-tea bag in betwen my teeth and my gums for half hour.

The pain and swelling really reduced within an hour. My advice would be - just be patient and follow a home remedy religously for an hour - it will work !!


I broke a tooth on tuesday Nov. 4 2008 and I belive the nerve is exposed.The pain is very severe,almost bring tears to my eyes.The pain started once every 5-6 hours and lasted a few minutes.Later in the week it became non stop.I had important things going on at work and could not take off to go to the Dentist.With my coverage I could not get an appointment until next week.I was using Ora-gel max every 10 minutes out of desperation{dosage is suppose to be once every 4 hours} when I came upon this web site.I read a post about Vanilla extract and gave it a try on a soaked Q-tip and held it on the tooth.The pain was gone in 30 seconds.I don't know at this point how long the pain will subside for, but it works for now.I think it's better then doing Ora-gel.The brand I am using is Spice Classics Pure Vanilla Extract.The broken tooth is 1 in from the wisdom tooth top right. Good luck
