72 Home Remedies for Severe Tooth Pain

Just a Southern thang

hello! i recently have gotten 3 teeth removed (including 2 wisdom teeth). shortly after my mouth started hurting again. a full WEEK went by and it was just too much to handle anymore. i knew i had to get them filled and just thought i was having trauma from the operation. days went on and it became worse, to the point were it brought me to tears and didn't want to move. i tried EVERYTHING! But one day my father grabbed a gauze pad, and put orajel on both sides along with oral pain relief liquid (ask a cvs or pharmacy worker) then coated the middle with orajel and advil liquid gels liquid (poke end of capsule with CLEAN thumb tac or needle!) place over tooth and tuck both sides on each side of tooth or teeth touching gums. leave it on for as long as you want just don't swallow! I'm in absolute no pain AT ALL!! i just don't want to take it off! this should hold you over until you're next appointment. gotta love my sweet Daddy!!!


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!
