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.

Thank you!! I happened to have some for another ailment and we used it on my boyfriend's tooth. He said it was weird how he could feel it working and felt better immediately! I never would have thought of it!

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!

I started Oil Pulling with extra virgin coconut oil and saw results the first time. I have had a sensitive tooth for years that has not responded to any other treatment. One OP and it was gone. About an hour after the first pulling my eyeballs started to ache. It got worse until I had to blow my nose and got a lot of egg yolk colored snot. The eye ache went away. My nose stops up every night when I lay down but not after oil pulling. I have also tried cold pressed sunflower and will try cold pressed sesame tomorrow.

Many thanks to Lucille from Jersey City. I had sensitive gums and nerves for several months after having two dental procedures - removal of an impacted and decayed wisdom tooth -lower left,and placement of a crown on a molar above. I was very sensitive to cold especially but hot as well. Oil pulling with coconut oil just three times cured it 95%. It was hard to believe after it was so sensitive it virtually went away. I rarely feel anything anymore except with extreme temperatures and I see even that declining as the days go by.

I did a combination of oil pulling and a clove of finely chopped garlic and pulled the combo for ten min. I did this three times day one and 95% of the pain and swelling was gone. Today I woke up and plan on doing it two more times just to make sure that I knock out the balance oc any infection that may be left. I was shocked at how effective this was and really excited to share with all of you. So next time you have a tooth ache try this method to see if it is as effective for you as it was for me. Not only did my pain go away but my teeth are cleaner and my breath could knock a buzzard off a sh-- wagon

Warm salt water works like magic to temporarily reduce or halt pain tooth pain. To reduce infection so salt water rinses are needed less or all together, nothing works like olive leaf extract! I wish you could see the look on my face or hear the sincere tone of voice I'd use to convey how awesome it works! I had a wisdome tooth that broke then later got infected. Olive leaf extract healed the infection. I ended up delaying the extraction out of plain ol' fear of the tooth pulling for months with no pain or problems. I don't advise putting off something this serious but if you need time, use the olive leaf extract. I took 2 caps 4 times a day. Let me tell you, its worth it because it works so good! You can tell by the second or 3rd dose that its working! Just this last time, I noticed a few hours after the 1st dose.

No one can praise the power of good old warm salt water... It helps my toothaches almost instantly and was recommended to me by a respected Dentist. Worked for me again this morning :)"

The other comments here look excellent.

I also just wanted to add that a few drops of tea tree oil and/or witchhazel, as helpful too- straight onto the gum with a finger or toothbrush (diluted in some oil or straight on seems fine for me too). It has helped me a lot- the pain had been unbearable, it took a couple of days both times I tried it. I'm not sure if its totally healed now this time, so I will continue this for a bit longer, and may try clove oil and/or garlic, cayenne, or oil pulling remedies too to compare their efficiency.
