Here's a suggestion re toothache: buy a bottle of Glycerin. Either the '100% pure Vegetable Source' from a health supplement store, or a drugstore's 'USP' grade is fine. Brush your teeth with it, pure. It is a moderately sweet, intensely hygroscopic 3-carbon alcohol, somewhat syrupy in texture. You can swallow it, if you wish. In fact, a swish on the back of the tongue and swallow kills the sulfur-loving bacteria back there and instantly ends 'death breath'. The G. will kill all bacteria in your mouth, and penetrate cavities, and filter down under the gumline and clean out periodontal disease bacteria, as well. When I figgered this out, years ago, I had only a few, loose teeth left. They immediately firmed up and I've had no problems since.

It has a myriad other uses; any skin condition responds rapidly, from sunburn to bites to psoriasis. Reorders and rebuilds the skin layers from the bottom up. Subdues inflammation, and turns off "alarm chemicals" causing pain; it is often prescribed for arthritis sufferers for that and other reasons. It naturally penetrates the skin without rubbing. Marvelous stuff. Dirt cheap; expect to pay $1/oz for it, and it goes a long way. BTW, it's the most widely used chemical in existence, partly because it is 'GRAS*' as a food additive, virtually the highest rating. Raisins soaked in it stay soft, e.g. used as a lubricant instead of oil in food processing equipment where contamination might be an issue. Currently, a glut on the world market as it is a high-volume byproduct of biofuels. *FDA-rating "Generally Regarded as Safe"

I used the acv, but I also tried green tea unsweetened and then sucked on the tea bags over the tooth and within an hour toothache was gone, then I drank the warm tea and that helped better than any over the counter pain meds. Hope this helps someone it did me.

I started having a toothache a week ago, I read before that green tea is suppose to help with gum disease, so I bought a bottle of green tea pills (I don't like the taste of the tea). They are 250 mg, and 95% polyphenols. I have been taking 4 of those a day, and mouth washing with peroxide and my toothache pain has reduced to almost no pain at all.

Hydrogen Peroxide

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.

Using goldenseal liquid is also excellent in healing oral issues. Put 2-5 drops in 4oz water and swish until gone. It works great. You may use it 2-6 times daily, but not over 10 days. We have healed abcessed tooth infections with this. The tooth still needs dental assistance from a dentist, but it does end the infection.

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.

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! :)

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.

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.

Thanks, Robert. I will look into the ozone therapy and whether there are any dentists in my area that use it.

My fiance has a really bad toothache. How do I use hydrogen peroxide in his mouth?

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.

H202 for toothache: I was recommended by a friend to gargle for one minute with H2O2 3% solution 2 or 3 times per day and repeat for three or so days to relieve throbbing pain. And IT WORKED.

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!!

If you have a terrible toothache, put a capful of 3% peroxide in your mouth and hold for ten minutes several times a day. The pain will diminish quickly.

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.
