I am a grown woman. Who is afraid of the dentist. I have panic attacks. I have two wisdom teeth along with molars that the feelings have come out. I tried everything for pain. Tylenol extra strength three at a time, aleve, ibuprofen sometimes takeing all pain medication at once for relief. When this no longer worked. I researched the benefits of acv.. I was already taking Apple Cider Vinegar for weight loss. And to promote the digestion of my food. I put two tablespoons in luke warm water(tap). And rinsed my mouth. The pain stopped immediately.. My God is all I can say. Please give me the courage to go to the dentist. I don't know why this remedy worked but it did. Thank you.

Stephanie - I hope by now u got into the dentist and took care of the problems.

There are plenty of us out here that have that problem of simply getting into that chair-speaking for myself, I simply can't take it anymore.

My blood pressure agrees with ME and spikes incredibly HIGH leading to even the dentist refusing to work-upper number greater than 210--and yeah this is even w/the antihypertensives-

Finally 1 dentist witnessed me taking the medications, waited for a workable reading and continued working even though it started to rise AND GOT THEM OUT and then of course the blood pressure came down--you're not the only one having difficulties and you will find a dentist that YOU can work with.

See if there is someone to get you home after the office visit and then the dentist can give you a little "something" besides the nitrous that will RELAX YOU and get you through the visit nice and easy.

I was having a horrible time with a cracked tooth, the pain was awful! IB Profin would only numb the pain for a short time. I tried peroxide, garlic and a few other things and nothing helped. Finally, I tried 2 tablespoons of ACV with the mother in a glass of warm water. Let me tell you, after the first two sips the pain started to go away! I'm on the second day of the vinegar and water 3 times a day and the pain is pretty much gone! I am amazed! I'm going to keep doing it but gradually reducing it until I get to 1 tablespoon in water 2 times a day.

Just followed your advice and got the exact same results. After agonizing with toothache for 11 hours, I read this and immediately prepared my own. Warm water, 2 tbs ACV, and black forest honey for its antibacterial properties and... Gone after only two sips. I finished it and bought some more ACV so I might take it 3 times a day and see. Thank you ALL of you who posted your experiences here, the good ones and the bad ones, so we can all benefit from each other's stories.

The ACV -- are you swallowing it or just rinsing your mouth with it?

Thank you so much. I've been doing ice water for over a week now and could not get to a dentist. I did exactly what you said, two tablespoons vinegar one big tablespoon of honey and warm water. The toothache pain disappeared in 10 seconds and has not been back. It's been over two hours now I honestly think I'll get some sleep tonight thanks again

I had a bad toothache in my decayed wisdom tooth, with a slightly swollen right cheek and a general feeling of fatigue and malaise. The symptoms lasted for almost 2 weeks and didn't get better. I went to my doctor to ask for some antibiotics and they turned me away, telling me I needed to see a dentist. I went to my dentist and they said they could pull the tooth at the end of the month. Desperate and in pain, I tried almost every remedy on this page - oil pulling, oil of oregano, coconut oil (internally and swishing), garlic (tried minced and fresh garlic), hydrogen peroxide, vitamin E... Nothing worked at all. I felt some temporary relief after oil pulling and swishing with hydrogen peroxide that would last about 30 minutes before the pain started to return. Orajel worked for maybe 20 minutes.

I had given up and decided to take apple cider vinegar internally to help with the feeling of malaise (swishing with apple cider vinegar did not help my toothache either). Immediately I felt some relief in the tooth pain. Within about an hour or two the pain had diminished by half. I just thought it was a fluke and stopped taking the apple cider vinegar. The pain came back and lasted for about 2 days. Desperate, I tried the apple cider vinegar again, this time taking it about 2 or 3 times a day. The pain went away completely in 2 days - what a miracle! The pain hasn't come back since. I take ACV maybe once every few days. I have a surgery scheduled to remove my wisdom teeth, but in the meantime, this has been a lifesaver. I wouldn't have thought that taking this internally would help, but it makes sense because most toothaches are due to bacterial infections in the tooth or gum - and ACV is great at getting rid of bacteria infections. By the way, I use the organic kind with the "mother". I've found it is much more effective than other brands.

One last note - if you are having a severe toothache or abcess, please go see your dentist. A dentist won't kill you, but an untreated abcess can. Just bite the bullet and go see your dentist... Even if you don't have health insurance, you might be able to find a dental school near you that offers discounted or free services. Best wishes!!

I had read about all of the ailments that could be treated by Apple Cider Vinegar and decided to try it for a bad case of Athlete's Foot. I used it for about 6 weeks and the problem cleared up completely. A couple of months later, I chipped a piece of a filling from my tooth. Within a couple of days, the tooth started to ache. I remembered how the Apple Cider Vinegar had killed the bacteria from my feet so I decided to start taking it internally to kill bacteria from the inside out. It immediately started to reduce the pain in my tooth. Within 3 weeks, my toothache was completed gone. I still haven't gone to a dentist to get it fixed. I just keep taking my ACV!

Friday evening: All Dentists closed and I had tooth pain. I did read about sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) as painkiller, did not believe it, but tried it, since I had no other choice. Just a glass of water with one teaspoon of it.

It worked in seconds! Total removal of tooth pain in one second! Immediately no longer pain! That is what I wanted. Why taking cancer-promoting normal painkillers like Aspirin or Paracetamol etc. ?

Nevertheless it has nothing to do with ordinary pain killers (with strong unwanted side-effects) - it just did neutralize something acid in the hole of my damaged tooth. The whole day no pain. However, I guess when I would have eaten something acid, I guess would have got the pain again.

So it is possibly not a cure for any tooth pain, but possibly may be.

Hello! I wrote in awhile back about a molar I had had a new and very deep filling in. It was still sensiting to cold and chewing on it was hard to do also. Well, it is now over a month since the filling was put in, and four days ago I started taking some barley grass in water - About one half of a teaspoon 2x a day the first day, building up to about a teaspoon in 12 oz of water first thing in the morning, 1/2 tsp in the afternoon, and 1/2 tsp before bed - (as it seems to relax me, not energize me as some say it can do).

Anyway - I do believe my darned tooth might actually be getting better! The cold sensitivity is no longer shocking me like it was. Such a relief. I know it may just be a coincidence, but I don't think so. After reading about barley grass and finding out how many minerals it has in it, I think it might be just the ticket. I am keeping my fingers crossed!

I have a question about the barley grass origin though. I just ordered some more online and after ordering it I found out this particular brand is grown in China. It is from S----W---- Botanicals, and it has very good reviews on the vitamin site I bought it through (and the price is amazing as well)... BUT! - Now I am wondering, if it is from China how well regulated their food grade products might be? Does anyone have any idea on that? Weren't they the ones with the adulterated milk products a year or so ago? Shoud I be concerned?

I would also really appreciate hearing from anyone else who is or has taken it, and what their experiences were! :-) Thanks!

I used to get extremely painful toothaches. I remembered my mom telling me once about Blackstrap Molasses being full of nutrients (calcium and magnesium) in large amounts in general. So I thought I'd try it the next time my tooth ache occurred, and within half an hour, my tooth ache was completely gone. When my young daughters had growing pains, I decided to also try this on them: (1 tbsp) followed by any liquid (water ,milk, juice, just to wash it down). Her growing pain had stopped. As I had figured these tooth problems and shin aches may have been from a calcium/magnesium deficiency. The pain had left her in under half an hour. I believe from my own research that if the body does not get enough calcium it will leach it from other areas. thus the pain.

How much blackstrap molasses did you use? Did you swallow it or just put it on the tooth? Please respond quickly........God Bless.

In answer to your question, I always do a Tablespoon. I think it is sufficient. Any less may be too little.

I practice alternative medicine whenever I can. Ironically, the more you see a dentist, the more pain you have. Despite a high pain tolerance, I had excruciating radiating pain (to ear, jaw, neck) from an old partially restored crown that needs revision. Hot foods and liquids particularly irritating. Q-tip dipped in clove oil, -- rinse this out after letting it sit a minute -- don't swallow clove oil, --then a swab of baking soda gave me temporary relief.

I have been doing the OP, Black Walnut extract, rinsing mouth out with half drop of tea tree oil and water, dash of salt-cayenne pepper-baking soda, trying to get gums to grow back, re-mineralize teeth w/homemade toothpaste to up minerals needed {teeth were looking transparent, now don't}. molar on upper left of jaw hurt so bad, could wiggle it.(wiggleing it once was quite enough}

I put a whole clove in pastic sandwich bag and mashed it with a hammer, put clove on tooth, chewed it gingerly. Did not realize tooth was swollen-but swelling and pain is gone now! Will be able to make and wait for dental appt. without being in exceeding pain.

Using whole cloves for toothache remedy.

It really does work, I made a satchel of whole cloves, bashed it with a hammer, and gnawed at it for 15 min....finally relief!

I have been dealing with partial root canal for the past few months, and after a few weeks the temporary filling was lost. For someone like me who hates the dentist I couldn't find the time to go back... I used dental wax as a temporary filling but that didn't last and over the week the crown of my tooth that was remaining, broke off leaving the roots in my jaw and crack. I went to the dentist and he performed an emergency extraction after 45(broke it pretty good) I was on pain medication for two days with little relief. I found the website and looked through the list I had many and started going to the list. In my cabinets I found pure vanilla extract (instant relief), sea salt mouth rinse, hydrogen peroxide and garlic cloves all worked but didn't last long. Looked in my spices and found ground cloves and I mixed it with some black tea in a little pouch from the tea bags and to my amazement it worked!! Instant relief, didn't taste well but it worked!! I Recommend to people that might be skeptical to try the options found in this site for many alternatives to getting better.

I went to the dentist for a crown on one side and onlay on the other and was in excruciating pain. Called my dentist and was told to take 2 advils and 3 extra strength tylenol, the equivalent of Vicodin. No improvement. Called back and was told take 4 advils, the equivalent of Motrin. Still in pain. Called back and was told I could take 2 more advils. Instead, turned to EC and read about clove. Put it on gums around teeth and it immediately went to work and I was able to go to sleep. Woke up no pain. Thank you EC.

When recently I experienced a "puss bag" along the upper gum line, I knew it signified infection, but due to extensive dental work, I had no idea exactly where. I came here and saw how many reviewers spoke highly of clove oil. I used powdered cloves in some olive oil, soaked a cotton ball and applied for puss bag for 10 mins. I also placed another soaked cotton ball on suspected source of infection (which strangely enough was on the opposite side.of the jaw), and this took care of it in one application! I was amazed and grateful. Then I remembered that when I was a kid and had a toothache at school one day, the school secretary went and bought a product called Jiffy with small formed cotton balls that could be.placed on a sore tooth on the end of a toothpick -, this product was nothing more than clove oil. Thank you, Earth Clinic. Another round of antibiotics avoided!!

I have a toothache. Been going off and on for a few weeks. I am waiting until the dentist can see me. I read about the clove oil and ground cloves. All I had was ground cloves. I put some ground clove around the tooth and the pain is quite diminished. Tastes nasty though but anything to stop the pain.

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.
