904 Home Remedies for Abscessed Tooth


im not promoting this, but smoking cannabis can relieve almost any pain known to man including a dreaded toothache that no amount of ibuprofen, clove oil or any other remedies can cure. When used in the right context and not abused, it can be extremely beneficial and medically effective.


What does your dentist give you for the infection?(most tooth aches are infections) Penicillin the next best thing is natures penicillin Garlic. It works for the pain but might make you smell like garlic. Take 1,000-4,000 MG
Thats what works for me. Doesnt always work on the spot might take a couple of hours Depending how bad the pain is or goto a Helth food store and ask what they recommend.

If you are unfortunate enough - like myself - to have an abcessed cracked molar (or tooth) but are unable to go to the dentist to have it taken care of, here's what I found to be very helpfull.

You need:

- 1 small water glass
- 1 pair of pointy tweezers
- cotton balls
- salt
- Tea Tree oil

Boil (!!) some water and fill half of the glass. Pour some of the water over the tip of the tweezers to sterilize. Add 1 tsp of salt. Stir until salt is disolved. Add cold water (preferably from store bought water since this is likely to be less germ infested) so it's still hot but drinkable and 1 to 2 drops of Tea Tree oil.
Rinse your mouth - making sure to rinse specifically around the abcessed molar/tooth - and spit out. Repeat this several times and also gurgle in order to kill of any germs in the back of your throat and mouth. Do NOT swallow!!! Leave some water in the glass.

Add some of the boiled water to heat up the salt/Tea Tree solution. Take a small amount of cotton and roll into ball, then place it between the tip of the tweezers. Dip the cotton in the solution and pack your molar/tooth so the cotton comes in contact with the infected area. Use several small packings until your molar/tooth is filled.

If the abcess is on the outside of your molar/tooth (on the gumline) pack the side of your mouth so the cotton stays in place.

Leave the packing anywhere from 1 to 3 hours and then remove it. Repeath the whole procedure several times a day, making sure to rinse your mouth inbetween to get rid of any infected material that drains from the abcess. And trust me, it WILL drain!

Make sure you DO brush your teeth at least twice a day to keep everything clean. Place 1 drop of Tea Tree oil on your toothbrush in addition to the toothpaste. You can do this as well if the abcess has disappeared to lower the risk of any teeth becoming infected again. Rinsing with water and 1-3 drops of tea Tree oil aslo works very preventative.


Colloidal silver is a wonderful natural antibiotic. Swish it around your mouth for as long as you can stand it-up to 10 minutes if possible. Also take it internally-directions are on bottle. Another powerful and natural antibiotic is Grapefruit Seed Extract made by the company Nutribiotic. Put a few drops in some water and swish for a few minutes. It is very bitter, but it helps rid the infection. I also have been using the Hydrogen Peroxide Mouthwash. Do not take a sip off a regular ol' bottle of peroxide, buy the actual mouthwash. All this stuff can be bought at the health food store. Clove oil, which they make for teething babies has helped with my pain and throbbing. I have also increased my vitamin C to about 4,000 mg a day. Drink as much water as you can. I personally don't recommend any ice because in my case, I would drop to the floor in pain. Good Luck!!


For immediate pain relief apply clove powder or oil of clove directly to the affected tooth. Obtain sore-throat spray containing phenol and spray locally around the tooth gum area & allow to soak in, this will help relieve the infection. Or,rinse with a mixture of a little salt and hydrogen peroxide (a pinch NaCl to Tbsp H2O2 is enough),this also relieves the infection-sometimes for a long time. Not permanent, but good temporary put-off. See a dentist before the root bed deteriorates and the tooth needs extraction.


Tea bag!!! Really did help. I have been in pain for 5 days now. I have tried Ibuprofen, Orajel, Anbesol, Hydrocodone, Vanilla Extract, Mouthwash, Warm compresses, and placing this tea bag between my cheek and tooth has relieved my pain from a 10 to a 1. It's easy too. I ran out of Lipton but i had Jasmine tea bags and it seemes to be working great, but it is only temporary. I am still surfing the web for the best solution aside from going to the Dentist which is what I should have done already but with 4 growing children I have to wait. Try it though. I have had this tea bag in my mouth for an hour now and it is still working.


first of all medical is a must! avscessed teeth can lead to spinal problems (as in my case) loss of facial bone structure, inflammation of the heart and a score of other problems. i've tried the teabag does help to draw it out...but the infection still lingers IT WILL COME BACK!! if you're jut looking for pain relieve until medical attention can be recieved then maximum strangth orajel, clove oil, ice cube, whiskey, or a baby aspirin applied to the area do provide som relief. don't use anything stronger than a baby aspirin it will eat away at your gums. as will the clove oil so be careful and don't swallow! i have absolutely no money or insurance. i depend on the free clinic and with the influx of unisured people lately it is very hard to be seen. i finally went to a regular doctor who gave me free samples of levaquin ( a very strong antibiotic) which other wise would have cost me 150 dollars for ten pills and also because my last antibiotic erythromycin didn't kill the infection ( i'm allergic to amoxicillin).
but be careful with which home remedy you choose! please try to find a free clinic in your area if money is an issue!

Abcessed tooth

take 2 - 200mg ibuprofene with water, then rinse mouth with mouthwash, any kind will do, as directed on bottle.
Do not eat or drink for at least 15 minutes after rinsing. You then can take a steaped hot tea bag and put in your mouth and hold it on the tooth for as long as you can stand. This will help with any infection.


This is a problem that requires multiple treatments in my opinion. You need to relieve the pain and to fight the infection. First of all for the pain there is ice or very cold water, swirl it in your mouth every few minutes to help with the pain. Secondly there is tea bags or potatoes. Both can draw out an infection, I prefer the teabag myself. This helps with the pain by drawing out the infection and relieving the pain caused by the internal swelling. Simply tuck a dry teabag into your cheek against the sore tooth. Lay down for awhile I usually change the bag every 2 hours or so, but that is partially because I tend to bite down on it and I don't want it to rip open and pour tea leaves down my throat.

Secondly you need to fight the infection, garlic tablets and vitamin C have always been the best cures I have found. I can't tell you how much to take as I usually pour out a handful from each bottle and put them in my pocket and take one or two each time I take a drink of my cold water. Secondly I up the water intake to about a gallon a day or so to keep my system rinsing itself out and fight the infection. Also several times a day I rinse my mouth with peroxide letting it soak on the offending tooth for several minutes then spitting it out, I do this two or three times in a row about 4 times a day.

Usually I'm fine in between 24 and 48 hours, the infection and the pain are gone and I'm able to just go about my life.

Let me say that I know that whoever posted a million posts in this thread is correct in saying if you have an abscessed tooth you should get medical attention, unfortunately not all of us can do that, I myself have NO money, No insurance, and small kids to take care of, and a job i have to go to no matter how much pain I'm in to pay the bills and keep a roof over my head. I have had a tooth that is broken in half for about 2 years and gotten about 4 infections in it. It isn't fun and I wish I could afford to fix it so that I didn't have to keep dealing with it on my own but the truth is I just can't. I can't pick my tooth over food for my kids or paying the electric bill. But using a combination of the above tricks I've found I can at least keep the infections at bay and hopefully in the next few months my new job will Begin offering insurance and I can get it fixed

Good luck!

Just a man

In a blender preferrably or shaken up if a blender is not available. Take a pint of vodka and a heaping tablespoon of minced garlic. (not garlic paste) but mushy garlic and mix together. It's best if it's left for a few days in the refrigerator but for immediate relief, at least an hour. Then either use your finger or a Q-tip and dip into the liquid. Place directly on the abcessed tooth, dry socket or just painful area to include the gum. This method told to me by a medecine man is used by tweekers alot because their teeth are rotting from the drugs. Sounds wierd but this method worked wonders for me on my dry socket and it was almost instantaneous. Ok well I hope it works for you
