Ground cloves!!! best pain relief

April 04, 2015
So I have been experiencing a horrible toothache for about 4 days. I have been taking so much ibuprofen that I finally ran out this afternoon. The pain seems to really hit at night when I try to sleep so I haven't gotten much sleep.
But tonight I am pain free. I first brushed my teeth with baking soda then swished around warm mouthwash. I took some ground cloves and baking soda and added warm water to it. Swished it around for 30 seconds abut 3 times and I have no pain now! Ground cloves and baking soda is the answer!!!!

Late night experimenting

April 01, 2015
I have tried pretty much everything on here Garlic was good but it wears off Cinnamon was OK as was vanilla extract. Salt water did nothing, mouthwash did nothing I had no cough drops but swished cough medicine around and that helped a bit for a while as it has clove oil, peppermint oil and menthol in it Glad I can try what I DO have in the house thinking of making a TEA out of a mulled wine sachet I have as it contains cinnamon and cloves and may add some honey to it too, might be soothing if I drink / swoosh it around the teeth while it's warm, not hot sleep deprivation is kicking in and yet this is the first time I have tried home remedies rather than high doses of painkillers and so far it has been an interesting experiment as some of the things DO work enough for me to concentrate and be able to write this..

I have a "concoction" of a mouthwash sitting there for me to try including salt, pepper, vinegar, vanilla extract, baking soda, lemon juice, ginger and garlic so it will probably taste RANK but will give it a try and see if it works. Have not tried milk as yet but will probably go to bed with the garlic paste as that seems to be working the best.
It is so good we can share our remedies with others as everyone knows about those awful sleepless nights in pain and if SOMETHING SIMPLE can help which you DO have in the house in the middle of the night then it is a 'natural Godsend!'

Toothach due to chipped tooth

February 20, 2015
For me it was 2 weeks of pain after I fell playing basketball at the West Valley City recreation center and hit my cheek on the floor. I thought I just bruised my cheek but it was my tooth. I ended up going to the dentist and having it pulled because it had cracked right through and broke in half. I am happy to have it out. One other way to fix the pain is to eat bananas and drink "COLD" milk.

Healing toothache with nutrition

February 18, 2015
This is the remedy for healing cavities and sensitive teeth that my family uses: For instant pain relief you can chew on a clove. For deeper healing of your teeth take 1/2tsp cod liver oil 1/2tsp butter oil 2 to 3 times a day I take it in a glass of hot-to-touch water by pinching my nose and washing it down. I usually have to take it 2-3 times before the toothache is gone. During that time I donĀ“t eat, I just drink plenty of bone broth for remineralization.

Try eating a banana and drinking some cold milk. Works like a charm for me and I hope it can work for you too. Thank you monkeys for giving us bananas (we are part ape).

Well the best home remedy for me is the panadol.. You just break it into pieces, and put small amount to the hole of your teeth ???? 5 mins the pain's gone.. It will last 24 hours for me!! This is the best solution I know..Try it!

I'm 19 years old with extreme teeth problems. My dentist decided to leave the glue from my braces on my teeth and I have had bad teeth ever since. I've seen plenty of remedies to try and cure the tooth pain but only a few seem to actually help. The biggest one I use is icy hot on my jaw/cheek where the pain is.
This doesn't solve everything but it does give you instant relief for around 20 minutes. Also putting an ice cube between your thumb and index finger where they connect and keeping it there for 10 minutes is great relief as well.
I know it sounds weird but it helps!

Pure vanilla extract works the best I would say. Just put some on a q-tip or cotton ball and apply it on the infected tooth and it will work wonders!! Tooth pain isn't fun and isn't worth it so make sure you call and get to your dentist asap because the pain isn't worth the fear of going.

The little fairy,milk + aleve

January 24, 2015
Hello everyone. I've battled with tooth-ache for sometime now, as it comes and goes at will. Last night wasn't an exception as the pain was excruciating coupled with a very severe pain inside my ear. I google for some home remedies and found this site. I tried most of the suggestions here, starting with gagling with some alcohol, warm salt water, toothpaste etc but they didn't work, so, I took 2 tablets of Aleve naproxen sodium, and while waiting for the med to kick in, I took a tin of milk and gulped it down!
After about 15minutes, Voila, the pains were gone and I could sleep for about 3 hours! I know I'm never gonna leave this Aleve out of my apartment!!! It works a great deal with pains!!! Hope it works for someone else! Thanks, people!

Toothache and heating pad comfort.

January 24, 2015
I think the tooth is cracked. It hurts off and on for a while but of course I ignored it until late on. Friday night I tried warm salt water, but it didn't work and I'm afraid to put anything else on it for fear of making it worse. My mom used to have us put a heating pad on a toothache, but that made this tooth hurt a lot more.

Fortunately I have some left over strong pain medicine, but unfortunately it didn't work, or at least not enough. Then I found myself lying in bed with my hand on the heating pad. In a very short time the tooth eased way back. I removed my hand from the heating pad and the pain went back up. I played around like this for a while and eventually settled down for a good night's sleep with the heating pad across my thighs. It's been almost 24 hours with a few more doses of medicine.

The medicine alone isn't cutting the pain enough, but it's minimal with the heating pad somewhere on my body. The heat is definitely comforting, but I think the warmth is drawing my brain's attention from my tooth pain. Try it even if you have nothing in the house for pain except ordinary Tylenol or Ibuprofen. It can't hurt anything, and it might help. Something is better than nothing.

Whisky, vanilla and oregano oil

January 09, 2015
Soak a cotton ball with colloidal silver, whisky, organic vanilla and oregano oil. It numbs it for about 15 minutes, then take capsaicin cream and rub it on your cheek(very little)

I first tried oil pulling with coconut oil(swishing it in mouth 4 15 minutes and then spitting it out, rinsing with hydrogen peroxide. Then I dabbed cinnamon, cloves and honey on it, but the soaked cotton ball worked a million times better--the alcohol of the whiskey numbs it for a while. I'm gonna keep doing that.
