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.
A friend and I hope had a toothache at the same time... Tried the ACV... Both our toothaches where completely gone in less than 5 minutes... Go ACV
Apple Cider Vinegar
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.
That is what I use in my mouth for tooth pain. It is quite strong. Just a drop applied with a q-tip.
Clove powder, from the spice aisle, works too. I think clove powder tastes better! Clove numbs things and is also antiseptic.

As far as pain goes for a tooth ache, just gargle with a concentrated salt solution ** As Needed .** It will kill the bacteria that is causing the pain.
Add 1-2 Teaspoons or Tablespoons to a cup of water and rinse - gargle as needed 3-4+ times a day. This will kill the bacteria in few days but the pain will go down after the first day or less, just make sure to use enough salt and do it enough and you should be OK in a few days...
Use something other than table salt if possible. It's stronger and non toxic, refined natural white sea salt is best or pink salt, you can get both very easily on ebay or amazon. The Hawaiian sea salt I like best for this. Buy the coarse grain as it`s less expensive and will dissolve anyway.
Hi, just wanted to add this to the mix, I have found that sipping comfrey tea is helpful for toothache. One of it's other names is 'knitbone' which might explain why it seems to me to strengthen teeth :)
I had shooting nerve pain on an upper molar all of a sudden, maybe from overdoing a water pik but it seemed like a dental infection. I read on Earth Clinic about tea bags, but sticking a soggy black tea bag in the back of my mouth and trying to hold it there made me gag and throw up! So then I swished with regular hydrogen peroxide. I held it in my mouth for about 30 seconds. It foamed up real fast so I spit it out and did it again but added water. I more minute. I did this morning and evening. The pain was gone by the next day. No problems since then and it's been a week.
I had a painful toothache from one of my top molars, the tooth had broken in half actually, and I was in a lot of pain. But that was almost 11 months ago :) Hydrogen peroxide works!! I brushed my teeth with baking soda, rinsed. Then swished a little HP for a few minutes (let it foam), then spit it out and rinsed with a little warm water. Again, that was 11 months ago, and I have absolutely no pain in that tooth, it's still there.
3% hydrogen peroxide for tooth pain relief.
It works better than the maximum strength tooth pain gel. And, it's one hell of a lot cheaper as well.
This was the best remedy, it works like a charm and works fast, I had tried all kinds of over the counter meds, orajel but nothing else worked like this natural remedy, it soothed the pain until I was able to get to the dentist, I put warm water, 2 teaspoons acv(with the mother) and added salt to mine and gargled with it and it worked immediately
Pain in tooth/gum came on very suddenly. No way to see a dentist. It's midnight & tomorrow is Christmas! I took 3 tylenol, oil pulled with coconut oil, made a paste of Activated Charcoal & applied it all over gum area. Feels much better within 15 - 30 minutes.
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.
Apple Cider Vinegar
Same thing happened to me. Tooth on top and one on bottom started hurting for no reason that I could think of. It wasn't the type of pain from a cavity, more like from a nerve. The pain would start at the teeth and then go up towards my ear. It only happened when I drank something, didn't matter if it was hot or cold. Read the post by Passion4film87 so swished half apple cider vinegar and half water and the pain was gone. I was so surprised that the pain would stop so fast.
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.
Son was suffering from a toothache. I remembered a friend had told me a couple years ago that vanilla worked great for her. Right away I applied vanilla to a piece of cotton ball and placed on cavity. Pain eased immediately.
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!!
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.
Anytime I have problems with my gums or teeth I use Alum. I pack my gums or brush my teeth with Alum. I also use oil pulling with Coconut oil. I love these two things. They have helped me a lot.You can find Alum in the spice rack at the store.
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!
That's the right stuff (AKA, eugenol or essential oil of cloves).
