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!
Apple Cider Vinegar
I had a horrible toothache and I mixed about 2 Tbsp ACV with the Mother and about 1 tsp of raw honey with about 1/4 cup of lukewarm water and I swished it around my teeth and then swallowed it. that was about 30 minutes ago and the pain was GONE within 15 minutes. Completely gone. I don't know how long the pain will be gone, but I am amazed and so grateful. I am concerned about the enamel damage possible by ACV so I might just swallow the mixture next time and see if that works as well. I am so amazed that this worked.
I also tried oil pulling with garlic. However, I was getting too burned by chopped up garlic and being the wussy I am, I opted for some organic garlic powder instead. I used coconut oil (enough to swish around in your mouth) and just poured some garlic powder on it and mixed it together until the oil was the yellow garlic color. I oil pull for at least 20 minutes at a time. The more often I do it, the more effective. I really just need to get this cavity fixed, but in the meantime, this has brought much 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.
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.

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.
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 had radiating pain on the entire left side of my mouth from who-knows-what, and not even Aleve - my go-to painkiller - was helping. Then I remembered - apple cider vinegar! I drank about 2oz. of it (like a shot, LOL) and then swished with a mouthful. My pain was instantly gone. Literally instantly. It hasn't been back, about 24 hours later. WOW!
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.

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

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've had a terrible toothache for 5 days, its been the worst pain I've had in my life!! I finally gargled hydrogen peroxide for like 25 seconds and it instantly stopped hurting. Try it now!!

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.
Thanks, Robert. I will look into the ozone therapy and whether there are any dentists in my area that use it.
HI U JOYCE, , , , , , , , , , , , you might want to look into dentists that are now using ozone instead of a root canal. In the state of Tenn, the medical folks allow no naturopaths, nor ozone. Don't mess with Big Brother.
I have found one dentist in the entire state that uses this procedure. How she gets by the crazies is beyond me. I have to go to Atlanta to get my ozone shots.
With my Medical Ozone Generator I can do ear and anal insulflation. I can do ozone water and ozone in a Sauna suit. I am chicken to try the blood stuff.
You are probably right.... it was your H2O2 that did the trick.
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 cracked tooth gave me almost unbearable pain. I wasn't able to see a dentist for a couple of days. Tried the almond extract. It worked almost immediately and provided about three hours of pain relief. Thanks!
I would strongly suggest not using alum, it is an aluminum salt and toxic to injest.
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.
Oil of Oregano
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!
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.
The accupuncture spot for a toothache is the web of your thumb on the hand opposite side of the toothache. meaning if the tooth is in the right side of your mouth put an ice cube on the web of your left thumb. The ice cube freezes the nerve til you can get to a dentist.
My fiance has a really bad toothache. How do I use hydrogen peroxide in his mouth?
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!!

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