71 Home Remedies for Severe Tooth Pain


I finally found a severe tooth pain remedy that is an answer to prayer (St. Appolonia, for any of you Catholic "kids," like me, is a good patron saint.) You need to understand that my poor mouth/jaw is basically a toxic waste dump, despite all of the money my parents and I have sunk into them. To give you an idea here of what we're talking about, the second night of my honeymoon was ruined, with the bride (me) laying with a hot pad on her face , gently mouthing these tender words to my dear groom, "OH NO ! ! ! MY MOUTH ..." Well, that was 10 (!) years ago. WHAT I AM USING to QUELL the AGONY of SEVERAL BROKEN, FALLEN-OUT, CARRIES-LADEN teeth, plus infected, inflamed, weeping, jaws : GENUINE VANILLA LACED COTTON BALLS. (Fake vanilla won't work.) I HAVE an appt. next month at the oral surgeon's to have them ALL yanked, and replaced with DENTIRES. AMEN ! ! ! Bless you, and good luck.( I think you have to change the vanilla "ball," around every couple of hours. Salt H2O, H2O2, baking soda, Benzocaine, teething remedy, Tylenol, even oral pain meds, did NOTHING for me. )


I have a mouth full of cavities plus a wisdom tooth growing in behind #31, which causes crazy swelling. The only that helps me EVERY TIME is pure vanilla extract. I take just enough to swish it over the hurting area for about a minute. Pain stops immediately. Imitation vanilla does not work. I've been through two whole bottles of the stuff. Need to restock because I am in PAIN!


I have 4 broken teeth, one with a jagged edge that presses against my other teeth and makes my whole mouth hurt. Im lucky to get three hours of sleep a night. For tooth remedy, I have mixed two cups (warm not hot) water with half a cup salt. burns but feels much better. table spoon Garlic powder, tablespoon black pepper and above has worked as well. (Also tastes kinda good, would taste awesome for marinade) Swish for 5 minutes then spit.

Vodka numbs but it goes away quick. (but youget a buzz which prevents you from thinking about it.)

Cloves... your mouth will get used to it within a couple hours and it wont work. (at least for me)

Bourbon or whiskey, WARM, works well.


i had seen a post about using wiskey to help a bad tooth ach. seeing as how i don't drink wiskey i thought i would try water with a lot of salt it seemed to work but it got me thinking what if vodka could work aswell so i gave it a shot(not litterly)

use vodka as mouth wash

rince with plain water then use water with lots of salt

the repeat for 20 mins or so

i found it worked quite well just to hold me over till i go to the dentist and get the tooth ripped out.


whiskey works/put a little whiskey next to bad tooth. could feel the pain start to go down.kept whiskey next to the tooth about half hour. 10 hours latter no pain. used more whiskey just to be sure.still have jaw but nothing.otc meds wont take care of. tried apple cider vinegar it worked but not like whiskey. hope this works four you.


Most likely the tooth is infected and you need antibiotics to clear up the infection and inflammation. The inflammation is what's causing the pain


coconut oil swish it over bad tooth for a good 15mins then spit it out never drink it as all those bad toxin will go into your stomach. its called tooth pulling and its the best way to eliminate pain, do this everyday till pain subsides then it should be done once a week to get rid of germs in your mouth. good luck nothing worse than a toothache.


I had severe toothache this evening, managed to cure it without leaving the house!

1. Pour cloves into a bowl

2. Crush as much as you are able to with the back of a spoon.

3. Place crushed cloves in the middle of a bandage pour a little olive oil over cloves before wrapping inside the bandage - make a small package. (Cloves can't escape but essence can get through)

4. Gently chew on side of mouth that doesn't have toothache to activate the cloves.

5. Rub package over affected area.

I did this 4 hours ago and am still pain free!! Maybe I should have been a witch? Try it for yourself toothache friends ????


I used clove oil. I put it on a Q-Tip and rubbed the gumb. Then I put it on a cotton ball and put inside my jaw against the tooth. Started to ease in about 2 minutes. However, the throbbing is till there! Huh!


I had a molar tooth that had a unknown cracked root, Not sure how it was cracked or when but went untreated for several years. I went to a number of dentists and had and xray fitting for a night guard and told I had TMJ as the pain from the my jaw, ear, and down into my shoulder. I would get terrible one side headaches almost daily to the point I was throwing up. After several dentist I gave up and told myself I have to just deal with it. About 2 years pasted. This winter I woke up to my face became numb on one side and I lost most of my hearing in one ear, and my shoulder felt like it was on fire. My head felt like I was hit by a mac truck. I put my hand on my face and realized it was all swollen. My husband took one look at me and said we are going to the emergency room - I said no its going to cost us a fortune. So I called my doctor / not dentist and he was able to see me right away. He took one look at me and told me I had a pretty bad infection but didnt see any teeth that were showing any signs of infection. He gave me a pretty high dose of antibiotics, and a shot, and some pain meds and told me to make an appointment with my dentist. The next day I went to the dentist and had more x rays done. Nothing showed up on the xray. The dentist put her figures in my mouth and started feeling around my gums and said wow you have a broken root back there and that tooth needs to come out. We waited a week because she said that with all the swelling the numbing stuff they use wont numb it and I would most likely feel all the pain. So we waited a week for the antibiotics to kick in. Of course I was sharing my story on facebook to all my friends. After I had my tooth pulled and I took my final antibiotic two days later my husband came home with the flu, well I got it and my extraction site because all swollen and infected. Again reaching out to vent on facebook. After several weeks of another round of antibiotics and sever pain in my jaw, ear, and shoulder, with a headache right behind my eye. Finally some relief. All done with the antibiotics - yeah for me. My extraction site is now all healed up and just took my last antibiotics, pain in my jaw is gone, my shoulder pain is almost gone, and I'm feeling the best I have felt in years - YEARS. Well thats not where this story ends. About 2 weeks later the pain started to come back - really yes really. Can I get a break please... Went back to the dentist and after a few tests they told me I had an infection in the bone since I waited so long to get it taken care of. Again I went on facebook and vented. About another round of antibiotics. Sigh. A close friend of a close friend reached out to my and told me about Theives and Clove essential oils how applying them to the infected area in my mouth would help. At this point I was willing to try anything as I didnt want them to do the surgery to remove part of the infected bone. So I purchased the Young living starter kit which includes Theives. Being 200\\% skeptical as I knew nothing about essential oils. The day I got my kit I applied just a dab to the inside of my mouth right next to my infected bone. Wow what a kick that was - but it works I can deal with that kick. I applied a dab almost every hour for two days (except of course while I was sleeping I didnt). Within 24 hours I started to notice a difference. No way still skeptical, but kept using it. After the first two days of once an hour I went to every other hour, for 2 days and then so on until I got to one time a day. During this time I visited the dentist twice for a follow up to see if surgery was in my forecast. She couldnt believe how fast the bone was healing. I tried to tell her about the oils but she hushed me said that what ever I was doing to keep it up as it was working, and that she couldnt hear about any home remedies. Now that its been about 5 months I can healthy say I am 100\\% healthier - the only thing wrong with me is I'm missing a tooth. My pain in my shoulder is gone (yes thank you), my ear pain is gone (another thank you) and havent had an eye headache for several months (Another BIG thank you). I'm now a big believer in essential oils and thought I would share my story. What brand oils do I use. Nothing other then the best Young Living Oils as they are 100\\% pure with no added chemicals and have a seed to seal. Meaning they grow their own plants with no chemicals from seeds. So they are 100\\% organic chemical free 100\\% essential oils.
