For future reference, here's something:
RAW cashew nuts! But there would seem to be evidence that they may not even have to be raw, in which case a can of cashews might work, too.
Gram positive bacteria, which cause tooth decay, acne, tuberculosis, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Francisella tularensis, and leprosy are killed by anacardic chemicals (salicylic acid with an unsaturated aliphatic side chain) in cashew nuts, cashew apples, and cashew shell oil. A sixth time with cashews required several days. It is possible that just eating a couple of ounces each day for a week or so would work also and might avoid any intolerance to cashew nuts. I have tried this successfully on another occasion. It is said that the people of the Gold Coast use cashew leaves and bark for a toothache. Vietnam has the highest per capita consumption of cashews, so this would be a good place to look for epidemiological evidence. Indeed, Vietnam has had a much lower rate of caries than other grain eating areas for the last several thousand years. The active chemicals are anacardic acids with a 15 carbon unsaturated side chain. The side chain with three unsaturated bonds was the most active against Streptococcus mutans, the tooth decay bacterium, in test tube experiments. The number of unsaturated bonds were not material against Propionibacterium acnes, the acne bacterium [#3 Kubo, et al 1993 p1018. Heating these anacardic acids converts them to the alcohols (cardinols) but does not destroy their activity against S. mutans [#4 Himajima & Kubo 1991 p419. I suspect that these chemicals are volatile, however, which is why I used the raw cashew nuts. Also it has been determined that high heat causes decarboxylation of anacardic acid [#14 Patel. Eichbaum claims that one part to 200,000 to as high as 2,000,000 parts of solution of anacardic acid is lethal to gram positive bacteria in 15 minutes [#4 Eichbaum. Somewhat higher ratios killed tubercle bacteria of tuberculosis in 30 minutes.
Chemical molecule structure of the anacardic acids:
[YEA] 01/27/2011: Geralyn_d from Atlanta, Ga replies: "I have used cashews for 11 years to control a cracked wisdom tooth. It did get abscessed when I got lazy about 4 years ago. A couple cashews chewed up morning and night to control it (do not brush the nutty Film off)... Then 3 or 4 times a day when it abcessed and it was back to normal in less than a week. But duh! Limit sweets and brush after eating the stuff... A candy jag is what got mine abscessed.
This year I discovered that cashews could get rid of my ulcer. Dr OZ pointed out that h-pylori was affected by cashew products. So after my Dr. Couldn't verify the h-pylori I tried 2 cashews every waking hour for 2 weeks. After the third day the pain was much less but I stuck with it for 2 weeks. I did a repeat of 2 weeks after a week off just to be sure. 4 months later feeling great! My friend who also had h-pylori was tested 4 times before diagnosis. She suffered a lot taking the antibiotics for it and still has A painful gut 6 months later... Hmmm... After 2 years of suffering I am pain free!! I love my cashews!! I use the "raw" ones too."
[YEA] 09/25/2008: Charles from Hendersonville, North Crolina: "Tooth abscess bacteria are usually a gram positive bacteria. Anacardic acids in raw cashew nuts are extremely lethal to those bacteria. To see a discussion of this access http://charles_w.tripod.com/tooth.html.

[YEA] 01/04/2008: DENNIS from BYHALIA, MS: "FORGET THAT ROOT CANAL & SUPER SORE SWOLLEN JAW!
Abscess tooth WITH SUPER SORE swollen jaw.
This recipe is famous for getting that abscess down (even beneath a crown tooth)
3 parts Slippery Elm, 2 parts baking yeast, 4 drops cloves, 1/3 teaspoon cayenne pepper, and open two activated caracole capsules and mix..
Add a little water enough to make a paste. It will be gummy due to the slippery elm. Then pack this mixture around the gum. The slippery elm, and charcoal, draws out the inflammation, the cayenne stimulates the cells around the tooth to release toxins and the cloves are added as a pain remedy, especially toothache. repeat every three to four hours as needed.
NEXT: Back it up by taking two capsules of turmeric in the AM and also two in the PM..TILL SWELING AND PAIN GO AWAY.

[YEA] 03/18/2010: Purelife from Columbia, Sc replies: "Truly we have to thank God for these natural cures. I were having some kind of tooth infection. I check EC found
the remedy you posted, must say it work like a charm since I did not want to call out from work. Had slippery elm bark used that instead of the powder, it worked fine it was instant relief. Going to try the tomato juice and cayenne pepper. Is this store bought juice or fresh press, please let me know?"
Cell Salts, Flower Remedies
[YEA] 04/13/2012: Maypeacebewithall from Singapore: "I have used cell salt no. 9 Mag Phos to relieve my mum's and my brother's toothache a few times. I crushed the tablet in some water and asked them to drink and hold it in the area of their tooth pain. Swallow it after a few minutes. The tooth pain subsided within minutes, sometimes as fast as when holding the solution in their month.
Once my brother had an excruciating tooth pain which shoot up to his head. He said that your tears will just rolled down automatically from the intensity of the pain. I dropped a few drops of flower essence into his decayed wisdom teeth and set an intention for the flower essence to heal him in his highest good and the severe pain also subsided within minutes. The flower essence I used is made from the painkiller plant.
Lastly, there was another time where I applied Aura Soma Physical Rescue oil to his cheek where his tooth pain was located. I poured some oil onto my palm and just rubbed onto his cheeks. Then, I placed my palms on his cheeks and send healing prayers to his decayed tooth. And his pain also subsided within minutes. Intention and Faith seems to be very important. Combined with the appropriate "tool", it can work miracles! Hope my above experiences can help others."
[YEA] 05/28/2009: Kristi from Cleburne, TX: "Regarding Tooth Abcess:
My son has recently had to deal with tooth abcess and gum pain due to a mouth injury. He eventually had a root canal.
We tried many concoctions, but the only thing that gave him relief from the pain was to make a paste with a very small amount of water and activated charcoal (get this at a health food store or your pharmacist). We put the thin paste on a piece of paper towel and tucked it in between his gum and lip. He left this on for hours at a time. After a few times it helped the swelling, redness and pain. He did this until he could get an appointment for a root canal."
Hydrogen Peroxide Remedy for a Tooth Abscess
Home Remedy Ingredients:
- Hydrogen Peroxide - 1/2 Tablespoon
Pour out about a half-tablespoon of 3% hydrogen peroxide and hold it in your mouth for several minutes, gently swishing the solution across the affected tooth to kill off the infection. Repeat twice daily. You can also soak a cotton ball in hydrogen peroxide and hold it against the tooth. Be aware that hydrogen peroxide is a mild bleaching agent.
CAUTION! A tooth abscess can quickly develop into an even more serious health condition. If not dealt with effectively, an abscess can spread its infection to the blood, heart, or brain causing serious harm and in some cases death. A dentist or doctor's care may be advisable even at the first appearance of the tooth abscess.
[BETTER BUT NOT CURED] 12/18/2006: Kat from Austin, TX: "I am using clove oil and peroxide... suppose to cure toothache. It does work but it doesn't when you lie down to sleep! I am still trying to fall a sleep in pain please help."Replies
Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: "Dear Kat: In that case, before going to sleep take 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda with 1/2 glass of water. Also try to use baking soda as a mouthwash to neutralize the acid first before a clove oil peroxide. If a local store has a half a pound of powdered xylitol, a teaspoon of xylitol taken internally and used as a mouthwash can also help. For remineralization of tooth, some molybdenum supplements may help."
[YEA] 09/08/2009: Bosco from Beaver Falls, Pa: "Clove Oil helped my aching tooth. It was a friday night when my tooth started to ache (go figure, and on labor day weekend so no dentist available for 3-4 days, always my luck). I spent labor day with an ice pack on my jaw and cheek all day. I used anbesol so many times i began to like the flavor. I had to figure something out because the next day I had to open my store and run my business and had to sleep. So I saw this about clove oil. I tried a couple drops of pure clove oil on a gauze pad and held it between my teeth. As soon as it became saturated, it was unbearable and I had to spit it out. At that point the pain went from 7 to 10 (on a scale of 1-10). When I finally got my jaw frozen again, I decided to try again. This time I mixed 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil and 2-3 drops of clove oil in a small dish and dunked a gauze pad in. It tasted much better that way. I held it between my teeth for as long as I could before the pressure was causing more pain than the tooth was. Needless to say, the pain went away completely for the next 4 hours. To be sure I didnt wake up in the middle of the night with massive pain again, I dunked another piece of gauze in and held it for about 10 minutes. The nextg morning I woke up with no pain. Didnt need more until about noon. Great Remedy"
[YEA] 06/03/2009: Valarie from Portland, OR: "(yea) I had a toothache (abcess) and used a couple drops of Oil of Cloves on a Qtip applied to the area. It killed the pain and have had 2 days of no pain, plus the swelling has gone down. Also rinsed mouth several times per day with sea salt water. The dentist and I agree to pull the tooth as it is loose and basically a goner. I also tried Oil of Oregano and rinsed with baking soda in water."
[YEA] 12/02/2008: WM from Marion, IL, USA: "infected teeth: oil of cloves is great fror pain also for lower teeth, bite down, find the high point of the masseter muscle, relax bite massage counter clockwise with the fingertip, counterclockwise ..as an outside view, for the upper teeth the point is in the joint of the jaw, 15 seconds ought to suffice, do both sides, as nerves often cross in the spinal area. for infection, bring milk in a pan to a simmer, take off heat, add any kind of edible mushrooms, as soon as you can tolerate the heat..take a tablespoon of the liquid, rinse it around the mouth till you have to spit it out..never swallow it!..by the time the pan is emptied, the infection should be gone."
[YEA] 08/31/2008: Ellen from Arlington, TX: "I woke up with a horrible toothache around 5:30 AM, this morning. I took two Tylenol and used Chloraseptic spray on the gums surrounding the tooth that was hurting. Nothing really worked. Actually the pain progressed until I couldn't do anything but sit in my computer chair and deal with the agonizing pain. I found this site a few weeks ago and had used two other recommended cures for other issues with great success. So it finally occured to me to search this site for a cure for toothache. Under the topic of tooth absess I saw clove oil and powdered cloves were used by many for relief of tooth pain. I immediately went to the kitchen and rubbed powdered clove on the surrounding gums. Within minutes my pain had diminished to bearable levels. I ate and then applied more powdered clove. The pain is gone! I am so grateful for this website. It has made a huge difference in my life in the last few weeks. Thank you all."
[BETTER BUT NOT CURED] 01/10/2008: Jamie from Mesa, Arizona: "Pertaining to clove powder, it is incredible. The tooth pain is gone but unfortunately, the abscess is still hurting but I just may be able to sleep today."
[YEA] 08/22/2007: Helen from Merrill, Wisconsin: "Ok after reading all the posts here, I ran to the grocery store and bought cloves, garlic, grapeseed oil (the store didn't have coconut oil) and tumeric. I put powdered cloves on my abscess for the pain. Pain is instantly gone. I will apply the garlic, oil, and tumeric later and let you know how that works!"Replies
07/21/2013: Cc from Atlanta replies: "What was your outcome?"
[YEA] 03/26/2007: Sue from Ottawa, Canada: "Cloves are nothing short of a miracle. I'd been in severe pain with an abscess and not even the most potent painkillers, antibiotics or extra strength oragel were helping. I read about clove oil on the internet and went to the local health food store to find some. They didn't carry it and neither did the drug store, so I bought powdered cloves and emptied the contents of a teabag and put the clove powder in. Within 5 minutes I was PAIN FREE for hours. I actually got some sleep! This is an unbelievable remedy and I only wish it were taken more seriously. No one with a toothache needs to use anything but cloves!"
[YEA] 11/20/2006: Kathy from Canonsburg, PA: "Oil of cloves and peroxide for Abscess tooth cured my abscess overnight. Because I have no dental insurance I decided to look on the internet for natural cures for an abscess. My cheek was so swollen for a couple days I looked like a 'chipmunk". It was swollen inside my mouth to the size of a dime and I got no relief. Yesterday (Sunday) I alternated between the peroxide and oil of cloves and today it is gone. I can't believe it. I could hardly eat or talk yesterday. Thank you thank you for your valuable website."
[YEA] 07/16/2007: Jerry from Hamburg, NY: "Coconut oil got rid of tooth infection. I've used coconut oil on a regular basis now for a few months in cooking mainly. Never experienced side effects no matter how much I used. Stopped using for a week or so due to busy work schedule, and got a bad infection in a tooth. My cheek was quite swollen and getting worse by the hour. Instead of going to a dentist for antibiotics, I got back on the coconut oil. Took one teaspoon orally then just used as I normally would in cooking. In less than two days the swelling and infection was gone!"
