Cloves   18  0   

Posted by Phummy (Il) on 02/02/2014

Cloves really work. I woke up with a throbbing swollen tooth This morning. I tried salt rinse, peroxide rinse, teabag, garlic, nothing worked. Teabag and garlic made it throb even more, rushed to local health store and got cloves powder, packed it on the tooth, pain reduced still throbbing after 15 mins. Will try colloidal silver next.

Coconut oil worked for me and my husband. I hope you do find something soon and get the pain under control, no fun having tooth pain!

Cloves acts just to numb the tooth so it is good just for the pain. It doesn't address the streptococcus mutans bacteria etc. Oxygen is what can kill these anaerobic bacteria.

I have experimented with various things. So far 1 part 3% hydrogen peroxide mixed with 1 part water seems like the best. You can add 25% DMSO. I would use colloidal silver in place of the water.

The water is used to make HP more gentle and more seemingly stable in mouth. I haven't experimented with stabilized oxygen because the expense is absurd.

[YEA]  WOW!!! That is all I can say for CLOVES!!! I found this site after searching for a home remedy for this cavity pain I have been having for days.... And everyone kept saying to use cloves.... Typically skeptical, I continued just the use of the prescription pain medication I use normally for my lower lumbar pain and Orajel... The meds seemed to not have any effect on the pain whatsoever and the Orajel only lasted for a few minutes.... At this point I was willing to try anything to just tolerate the pain! So, to the cupboard I went and found a jar of whole cloves.... Put the whole clove inside the hole of the cavity and INSTANTLY the pain seemed to subside!!! I only held the clove there momentarily and I am still in shock that it worked so fast! It has been over an hour and I still barely feel the pain... So THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! I cannot wait to tell everyone how well this worked!! I believe I will make certain I always have a jar of cloves for an emergency like this again in the future!!!

[YEA]   YES RACHAEL, WOW for the cloves. It worked... I too had to resort to using a whole clove in attempts to stop the pain! Incredible... I have a tooth that has a cracked root that went undetected until after a root canal and crown. The garlic clove worked on the pain of an abscess of another tooth so I started using the garlic for the one I had the crown removed but it was not woking as well. I used the teabag remedy that worked a little but when I saw this post and tried the whole clove... VOILA! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU EC!

[YEA]   I have to agree with this clove solution to tooth pain. I used clove soaked in Extra Virgin olive oil that I had in the kitchen and just put a spoon full in my mouth and gently kept it over the tooth that hurt. I also chewed some garlic a few times today too to alievate the pain. I also swished a diluted solution of DMSO in Pure water 2 table spoons in twenty ounces (20) on and off all day. (The pain started really bad when I ate a bowl of home made sauerkraut., It has never been refrigerated, I have just kept the sauerkraut under salted water). I also have been using on an off an extract of clove in alcohol and put into a little spray bottle for emergency tooth pain. When the clove extract is fresh it is an amazing anaesthetic and it works really fast. I have had my current batch for so long that it has lost much of its properties, but still possesses enough to solve the problem.

[YEA]  After reading ths stuff on this site I choose to go to vitamin shop and for 6 bucks got clove bud oil got my tooth psin. I came home tested the taste and it was horrid. The dropper was odd so I choose to put it on a tooth brush and brush my teeth. Fitst the opposed side of the pain and I swished to check for pain tolerance. Then the teeth above the problem area. Finally I brushed my entire mouth and I got really fast pain relief. In the medicine cabinet it went. I may report back with how long it lasts. It's cheap enough where I can brush, then eat a real meal for a change then go back to being cautious. ^5 for better eating lol.

[YEA]  About 2 months ago I started developing a toothache in a tooth I already have had a root canal and crown on. It was very sensitive to pressure (not to cold – which tells me the nerves inside are dead) and was starting to throb and ache more and more. I had almost resigned myself to go to the dentist where the solution would likely have been to pull it – what else would they do? Maybe they would have tried to treat it first with antibiotics. Anyway, I got on Earth Link looking for advice on temporary relief. After reading through a bunch of what people said I decided to synthesize a couple of the solutions. I spent about $18 on activated charcoal capsules and clove oil and mixed the two with a little olive oil into a paste. I put it in an emptied tea bag and used it as a compress between my cheek and gum next to the affected tooth. I left it there about an hour in the evening. I also put a couple of drops of clove oil on a cotton ball and held it against the area on the with my tongue for awhile at the same time. I just spit the nasty saliva in a cup because I didn't want to swallow it and I was worried the cloves might upset my stomach. That night it provided temporary relief, though I could still tell something was wrong and I still had the referred pain in my cheek and lower teeth on the same side.

However, in the morning I woke up early and went out to breakfast with someone. It wasn't until I got home that I realized my tooth not only didn't hurt anymore but that I'd been chewing on that side of mouth without even thinking about it. I was expecting the pain to return but it hasnt yet - there has been no recurrence at all in the last two months.

Since then I provided this information to a friends wife who was suffering with a temporary crown and she had similar results, she treated the area twice.

NOTE: My local store didn't have clove oil so the first try I just put ground cloves in with the activated charcoal. It might have provided some relief but it was negligible.

[YEA]  WOW! I LOVE this site! Toothache pain is the worst but THANK GOD for natural cures. I gargled with a couple of drops of clove oil in a quarter cup of hot water for a few seconds and within just a few minutes every single trace of pain was gone!!!! Clove oil is a God-send!

[WORKED TEMPORARILY]  Tried clove powder on my painful broken tooth w/ cavity. Worked for a day then stopped. Tried clove oil and oregano oil,also tried baking soda. All worked for a day and stopped. Had to resort to pain pills but have keeped with taking clove and oregano oil diluted in olive oil(needs diluting or will burn)for infection. After a week or so of taking pain pills the pain has mysteriously faded to an ache. Will continue with natural antibiotics till I can have the tooth pulled. Very sad the natural stuff didn't work for the pain.

[YEA]  I had a really bad toothache with throbbing pain radiating out from my tooth and taking over half of my head. I tried the clove essential oil on a cotton swab rubbed on and around my tooth. My pain is gone. I have to reapply it every 4-6 hours when it starts hurting just a little again. It is really strong tasting, so I have a glass of juice ready to get the taste out after I apply it. Thanks for the good advice, Earth Clinic!

[YEA]  I love oil of cloves. I had a tooth extracted on Monday and the next day I had a dry socket. I went to the dentist on Thursday and they packed it, which was very painful. I read here about oil of cloves and went to my local health food store today and bought oil of cloves. I 1st put it on a piece of gauze with very little relief, I then put it on a Qtip and put it on the tooth site and I have NO PAIN now. Thank you so very much for this site.

God Bless

One time when I had a terrible toothache on a weekend and also had no insurance, I called around trying to find a dentist who would see me. Finally one dentist told me that there was a product available at the drug store called Tooth Aid. I went and got it and it was a God send. The package contains cotton balls, the bottle of medicine and a pair of tweezers. You dip a tiny piece of cotton into the bottle and squeeze out what you can. Then you try to get the small piece between the two teeth nearest the ache. It can be hard to do if the teeth are close together. It did work beautifully and took away the pain for quite a long time.

When one of my children had an abcess, I couldn't get the cotton between his teeth and the oil began to burn his gums, so I found a better trick that I now use all the time. I get a q-tip wet with water and then barely touch it to the medicine. Then I rub it on the sore spot very gently. This finally provided him with relief. Used this way I had to do it more often but it didn't burn his gums. Since that time I've found other similar products at Walgreen's and Rite-aid that I've purchased. They all seem to have Eugenol as their active ingredient. I think this is a form of clove oil. I also coupled this with Melaleuca Tea Tree Oil. One of the properties of the tea tree oil is that is pulls the infection to one spot, which makes it easier to 'pop' and drain.

One last tip that I used to use before I found the oil trick. When I was in severe pain the only thing that helped was to rub a baby aspirin on the gums by the sore tooth. When I told the dentist how I made it through till I got in to him he warned me that this can do damage to the gums, but at the time I wouldn't have cared because the pain was so severe. Hope this helps someone.

[BETTER BUT NOT CURED]  I never post to these kind of sites but now I have to. I had been struggling with a toothache so bad that I was ready to pull the thing out with a pliers. I tried tea bags, salt water, listerine, pain killers, everything. After a day and a half of agony I found this site and I went out and bought ground clove. I applied it directly to the tooth that hurt and it feels SO much better! I still have a bit of a nagging pain and a headache but NOTHING near what it was before. Highly recommended.

[YEA]  I have been dealing with a toothache that has been radiating through my mouth all week long. I have been in so much pain and even strong pain killers were not providing an ounce of relief. I was also using tons of numbing solutions only to find myself in pain again a few minutes later. My Mom pulled up your site as we usually do (I don't know why we didn't do it sooner) and after reading the feedback about clove oil, went right out to find some. It was hard to find, major chains and vitamin shops didn't carry it but we do have a wonderful whole foods shop that did carry it. So when the pain fired up again this evening.. I put some of the Clove oil onto a gauze pad and held it down on the area that has been bothering me the most and I can't believe the results. I'm sitting here pain free. It seemed to work very quickly too.

[YEA]  I had a horrible toothache. I held a whole clove on the tooth for 2-3 minutes and the pain is gone!

[YEA]  Be careful what you put out in the universe, keep it positive at all times! Yesterday there was a boring meeting I just did not feel like attending so I crossed my fingers and used the little "white lie" about a toothache! This morning I woke up to a throbbing in an upper molar, and drinking cold water set me over the edge! Grabbed a tiny bottle of pure Clove Oil. Applied two drops to outside of my cheek opposite my toothe, then one drop on gum area! I couldn't believe it...sure it's a tad bitter, but ten minutes later I am pain free...like magic!

[YEA]  I was in agony with an infected tooth and even codeine and anti-inflammatories didn't seem to much ease the pain. Then I tried 100% clove oil. WOW is all I can say! The pain went in just seconds. It was truly amazing. Thank you so much and for this great site.

[YEA]  WOW! is all I can say. I was in such severe pain from an exposed tooth nerve that I thought I was going to go to the E.R. Then I tried cloves and my goodness the pain was gone in 2 minutes. Thank you for this web site- It is now on my favorites list.!!!!!
