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!

Greetings Charity and Flowing Hands,

Regarding Tooth Pain

Have you tried iodine? I have a few teeth that once were painful, but are still here ten years later because I learned about iodine. I use Lugol's. I usually have 7% on hand, however I am sure 2% will work. I use the lugol's two ways. The quickest way, I put a drop of iodine on my fingertip and rub it on the hurting gum and tooth. It works fast, usually less than an half hour. The relief is lasting, usually all day and sometimes the pain never returns. If pain returns, I would try again the next day. Oh and do take a selenium supplement. I did not know about this when I first started, but I read that Iodine and selenium go hand and hand.

The other way I use iodine for tooth pain is to put a drop in a little water and swish, or better yet, I put about ten drops of Lugol's in some bottled water and pour a little as a daily mouth gargle and swish. Yes, it is the same method many EC posters use to chase colds and viruses, but it chases my tooth pains too.

Keep the faith, all things are possible if we would just believe.

Cell Salts #12 Silicea 6x

I have had a toothache for 5 days with swollen gums and soreness. I was using various remedies including turmeric, oregano oil capsules, vitamin C, D, zinc and oil pulling with coconut oil. All was helping some but would get worse when I ate. I was trying to eat soft food too.

Then I read about cell salt #12, silicea 6x. It's good for acne, skin issues, hair and nails. Reviews also said good for impacted teeth. Ordered a bottle, received next day. Took 4 tablets under my tongue. Directions said to do this three times a day or if extreme, you can take it every 15 minutes.

After an hour, the swelling was gone on the bottom jaw. So I took four more. Now an hour later, swelling on top jaw completely gone and no pain. It's almost unbelievable until you experience it. Wow.

Sea Salt

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.


Comfrey

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 :)

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 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.

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.

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.

My 6 year old has a cracked molar and it started hurting today he cried and I try calling a dentist but too late in the evening and I looked up Earth clinic and found cloves, so I ground up some cloves and put it on has molar and maybe 20min later he was much better no more crying. The Dentist wants to do a root canal and silver cap my baby molar and wants me to give my baby 5ppm Fluoride tooth paste. No Way I will look and search for better options not sure when this molar will be coming out on its own. Thank you earth clinic and all the great people that post. God Bless

Dear Diane,

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.

Hydrogen Peroxide

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.

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

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.

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.


Hypericum

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.

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!!
