*Warning* This is gonna be a long post, jump to the bold part where the remedy is if you don't wanna read all of it.* Okay, so I have really bad teeth and frequently have horrible toothaches. About two days ago, I had probably the worst toothache/pain I've ever felt in my life. It started off pretty bad on my right side of my mouth so I first took like 4-5 tylenol and maybe a couple advil and of course it didn't even touch the pain, so I went to my bathroom & grabbed my Kanka Mouth Pain Liquid that numbs the pain and that usually helps when I have toothaches but this time it just made it a million times worse. When I was rubbing the applicator onto my teeth/gums, it made my gums so inflamed and irritated that the pain shot up to a 9/10. I sat on my bathroom floor holding a frozen water bottle to my cheek and just praying to God (literally, lol) to please take the pain away for about 10 minutes until I just couldn't handle it anymore and started bawling my eyes out. I haven't cried in years, I don't really ever cry at all, especially when it comes to pain but like I said, this was quite literally the worst pain I've ever been in. The pain just wouldn't stop. I'm an ex-opiate addict and I've been clean for almost 2 years now and I actually had some codeine cough syrup that I never took for another illness but at this point I was seriously considering taking it, that's how desperate I was for the pain to just stop. I actually withheld from taking the codeine and within like 20 minutes the pain surprisingly went down from an 20 out of 10 to a 4.5 out of 10. So I was able to fall asleep. Of course when I woke up, the pain was back and I couldn't take it anymore so I took a bit of the cough syrup, praying to God it would just stop the pain and it didn't even touch it. <b>Then I remembered I had some garlic in my fridge so I grabbed a bulb of garlic and broke a couple cloves off of it and peeled away the skin. Once it was completely bare of the skin, I broke 1 clove in half and immediately put 1 of the halves in my mouth, onto the side of my mouth that hurt and pressed it against the teeth/gums that were hurting me with my tongue. I held it in place for about 10 minutes while doing other stuff. Mind you, the garlic does start to burn your cheeks/tongue/gums a little bit but it was nothing compared to the pain I was in from my toothache. When I say this, I'm not exaggerating... The horrible, unbearable pain I was in that caused me to cry went away immediately. Like within 1 minute the pain was completely gone. I was in total shock. Garlic is a miracle pain killer! I was soo happy & relieved. If you have a horrible toothache or even mouth pain, cut up some garlic and put it on your teeth/gums. It really works. I think the garlic is a natural antibiotic and definitely has some pain killing properties. Try it and you'll be pleasantly surprised! But I wouldn't leave it in your mouth for too long, about 10 minutes or less should do it. And I'm sure you can do this multiple times a day. Just take it out of your mouth if it starts to burn really bad & cause you more pain. (It did burn my mouth a bit, but I was able to bear it cuz it wasn't that bad, at least not for me.)</b>
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! This site saved me. I had extreme nerve pain for 2 days. I went to the dentist last Friday and couldnt get an appointment for a root canal until this morning....Wednesday...it was ny fault...i didnt want to miss my sons first football game of the season. So I battled up through the pain with every suggestion on this site from the garlic paste, vanilla, ibuprofen, super glue...you name it. Most effective was the glue. Creating a barrier between the exposed nerve and the air/food is needed. The glue sealed off the nerve. I also think the ibuprofen for the pain and headache.
Crazy but if you get rubbing alcohol and dump a fourth of it and put mariguana in it let it sit three days . It should turn dark green . Grab a cotton swap and sock it in the alcohol and put it in the painful area should relieve you almost immediately
Hey guys listen I'm out of town for work and I have this tooth ache that will not stop I took over 3000 milligrams of Advil last night and it stopes it for a little while and I've had 6 goodies powders today any advice on something to help until I get back home this week it really need it it's so painful makes my eyes water thank you
tooth hurting my was to until I poured a goody powder over it.held it in there until it was gone tooth has not hurt since
use 'peace cool' very effective ....you'll soak a cotton wool in it and place it on the affected area.
Clove oil was my go to for my horrid teeth. I have it in several rooms of the house and in my bag. I'm working in a health / natural products store and the owner raved about Yerba Mansa. Tried it and it helps heal the cause of the pain, helps the pain. I still keep oil of clove in case the pain gets out of control. Oil Swishing helps ease the pain, but is more of a maintainance thing and alternative to brushing the teeth.
After a night of no sleep and tears,i found this site, i had a look in cupboards to see what i had i could use, i found garlic powder, so i firstly made a paste and put it directly on the painful tooth, and found apart from burning, it did not help, however i added more water to it and used it like a mouthwash... and hay presto no pain!!! no sure how long it will last but i am just happy i am not in pain.... now to try and sleep!
I froze a bottle of tap water but not all the way while I was waiting i swished half a glass of warm salt water around the teeth that were hurting then waited 20 more minutes got the water and drank some the I swished half a glass orlf warm salt water around the teeth that were hurting and drank the water
