For toothache when you can't get in to dentist right away, I swish 3% peroxide in mouth, hold for 30 seconds..then SPIT OUT. Repeat until you no longer see lots of bubbles or toothache relieved. See dentist if toothache is persistent.
About 7 years ago I had a bridge installed in my mouth. At the time the dentist was shaving down one of the tooth to accommodate the bridge he shaved down too far exposing the nerve. I subsequently had to have a root canal done. A year later the bridge fell out because said tooth was broken. A post was installed and the bridge rebonded. About 6 weeks ago, the bridge became loose. I went to the dentist, he took out the bridge soak in in some listerine and then rebonded. A week later I went in to have my annual cleaning done and everything went well. A day later, I started to have pains in the tooth where the root canal was done. It was unbearable to the point where I could not eat.
Two days later was late Friday and the dentist was closed at 2 p.m. I was thinking that I would call them on Monday and I believed that the tooth would have to be extracted surgically as it was broken (I had the same experience in the past). I used baking soda and hydrogen peroxide to brush my teeth and I decided to spray the hydrogen peroxide directly on the tooth and went to bed. The next day, to my surprise there was no more pain. I sprayed the tooth again in the morning and at night and to this day I have had no more pain.

My fiance has a really bad toothache. How do I use hydrogen peroxide in his mouth?
H202 for toothache: I was recommended by a friend to gargle for one minute with H2O2 3% solution 2 or 3 times per day and repeat for three or so days to relieve throbbing pain. And IT WORKED.
If you have a terrible toothache, put a capful of 3% peroxide in your mouth and hold for ten minutes several times a day. The pain will diminish quickly.

I took my 17 year old son to the dentist today. I wanted the dentist to evaluate his wisdom teeth because they are coming in and I suspect that is why he is having jaw pain. Anyway, dentist thinks the wisdom teeth are causing his jaw pain. It also turns out that one of the teeth that is not fully in is the reason he has tooth pain with a cold - it is right at a sinus cavity.
Anyway, I am beating around the bush. The dentist said that my son should rinse his mouth with diluted hydrogen peroxide and then salt water and that would help the swelling! This dentist is an older dentist practicing in a rural area, serving many who don't have a lot of money. He is kind enough to give simple remedies for problems instead of prescriptions. He isn't a naturalist dentist or anything, so far as I know. But I am grateful that he is willing to give natural suggestions to his patients!
My son is probably not in enough pain to bother doing these things. But I am sharing this story because it is nice to know that there are doctors who care and will suggest natural remedies, even if they are a rare breed! :)
Homeopathic Hypericum can be a great remedy for a toothache. It's the homeopathic version of St. John's Wort. I have hypersensitivity -- particularly in the tooth area -- so if there is even a minor irritation it can blossom into a lot of pain. Once when my dentist packed a cavity too tight the nerve was throbbing until I tried hypericum. I would have had to have a root canal or an extraction otherwise! Try hypericum 30c every 3 hours until the pain goes away. If it doesn't after a couple of days then another remedy is called for.
last time i had tooth ache, i tried chewing tender twigs & leaves of neem tree & it seemed to help. if one repeats this more than two to three times in a day, each time chewing for about 15-20 minutes, the pain will start subsiding, & provide lot of exercise to the mouth, which otherwise would be unthinkable in such times.
I saw oil of oregano and olive oil for toothache on your site. I decided to take a piece of floss and drench it in the mixture. I used about 4-5 drops of oregano oil to 1/2 teaspoon of olive oil. I moved the floss thru the mixture in the top of a prescription bottle cap. I put the floss thru my teeth where it hurt. Did this for 2-3 days and pain went away. Thanks for your beginning Earth Clinic. My favorite health site.
Oil of Oregano is by far the number 1 remedy for tooth pain. I suffered from pain after having a crown put in. I was scheduled to go back to the dentist for a procedure to have the crown drilled to remove nerve endings to put a stop to the pain. Well, I bought a bottle of Oil of Oregano that had 70% carvacrol, brand name Solaray. I put a few drops on a cotton ball and placed it on the bad tooth and just bit down. It was kept there for about 15 minutes but, just after about 1 minute I could feel instant relief. Oregano oil worked for all my friends that had a tooth problem too! Oregano oil is NOT the herb in your kitchen cupboard, so don't make that mistake. It also works for other problems too and I always have a bottle in the house. No ands, ifs, or buts about it oregano oil will kill the pain almost immediately! Oh, I never had to go back to have anything done with my crown.
Oil Pulling for tooth pain. My husband has been suffering from tooth pain (nerve pain) due to a cavity under a current filling. One trip to the dentist and they removed the filling and drilled out the cavity and replaced the filling. Over the counter meds were not touching the pain. He rarely slept for 2 days. I had him swish with peroxide and ACV with just a slight reduction in pain but it did not last more than a few minutes. I also had him use Clove oil and this only worked for about 10 mins. Then on to pressure points in his hands and face but still nothing. As a last ditch effort I had him take a tsp of organic virgin cold pressed cocconut oil and oil pull for 20 mins. He game back in in a great mood since it was the first time in 3 days he wasn't in pain. I just wanted to let others know this worked for my husband and is worth a try for tooth pain!!!
Thank you earth clinic for an amazing community!
I tried everything for toothache, cloves, garlic etc. The only thing that worked for me was oil pulling with coconut oil. The effect was instant and my teeth ending up shining white after a few days!
Every time now I feel a twitch of a toothache, I get straight in there and use the coconut oil.
I have been swishing with coconut oil several times a week. Two benefits I have noticed is 1->my yellow canine teeth have whitened considerably (I have tried without success bleaching, baking soda and peroxide, etc). 2->My sensitivity in my teeth have decreased dramatically. I have not been able to keep the coconut oil in for more than 10 minutes so far because my jaws seem to get so tired and I have such a desire to cough from the congestion it seems to pull from my sinuses, I always end up spitting it out after 10 mins or less. I also only do the swishing 3 or 4 times a week (due to forgetfulness). I am hoping to work my way up to the 20 mins every day because of the positive effects on my teeth.
I just discovered this site today, but wanted to share my experience. I read about oil pulling two months ago and thought it would be good to try for painful tooth that 3 dentists gave me 3 different diagnoses on. Bought a large bottle of pure sesame oil and pulled three mornings in a row with one tablespoon of oil. On the third day I noticed I had a slight sore throat. Two days later that was followed by what appeared to be the flu for four days (I now know that was the Herkximer reaction). The curious thing is I had no fever or digestive compliants the entire time of said "flu" - bad nasal congestion, eyes hurt like a headache and horrible coughing. When it was over I noticed that I was able to chew on the left side of my mouth which I had not been able to do for a few months! Was it the oil pulling? I seriously suspect so. If you were a bad microbe and could not produce your own food, where would you choose to live in the human body? Close to where the food comes in, right?
Oil pulling got rid of my tooth pain in just 3 days. I had a very painful toothache, my whole jaw and ear hurt from the pain. I could not get into see a dentist for two weeks. For several nights I could not sleep due to the pain. I tried several things first like splitting raw garlic and applying to both sides of tooth and gum area, it relieved it somewhat. I also tried rubbing with oregano oil I had in the medicine chest. I then found info on oil pulling on earth clinic. I was disparate, and tried it. I'm not sure if the garlic kicked in or the oregano....but soon I drifted off to sleep in much less pain. I used organic pure extra virgin coconut oil, unrefined, unbleached. I remember reading that this oil has antibacterial properties somewhere. I woke up the next morning and did it again. I also rubbed raw honey on he area, as I have read that has antibacterial properties as well. It was still hard to chew food for two days...but the pain was subsiding dramatically. By the fourth day I stopped oil pulling. And the pain continued to diminish and go away. I can chew good now and absolutely no pain. I am amazed! I'm curious as to what the dentist will find when I go to see him next week. Now today I did oil pulling again...going to do everyday to see if it whitens my teeth. Will keep you posted!
