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 did a combination of oil pulling and a clove of finely chopped garlic and pulled the combo for ten min. I did this three times day one and 95% of the pain and swelling was gone. Today I woke up and plan on doing it two more times just to make sure that I knock out the balance oc any infection that may be left. I was shocked at how effective this was and really excited to share with all of you. So next time you have a tooth ache try this method to see if it is as effective for you as it was for me. Not only did my pain go away but my teeth are cleaner and my breath could knock a buzzard off a sh-- wagon
My 17 year old son was up all through the night with a toothache. We tried everything....I looked on earth clinic and saw the suggestions for activated charcoal-I made a paste and it worked! Glad we had it-we keep it for spider bites.
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.
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 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.
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 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.
I have to agree with this clove solution to tooth pain. I used clove soaked in Extra Virgin olive oil that I had in the kitchen and just put a spoon full in my mouth and gently kept it over the tooth that hurt. I also chewed some garlic a few times today too to alievate the pain. I also swished a diluted solution of DMSO in Pure water 2 table spoons in twenty ounces (20) on and off all day. (The pain started really bad when I ate a bowl of home made sauerkraut., It has never been refrigerated, I have just kept the sauerkraut under salted water). I also have been using on an off an extract of clove in alcohol and put into a little spray bottle for emergency tooth pain. When the clove extract is fresh it is an amazing anaesthetic and it works really fast. I have had my current batch for so long that it has lost much of its properties, but still possesses enough to solve the problem.
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.
YES RACHAEL, WOW for the cloves. It worked... I too had to resort to using a whole clove in attempts to stop the pain! Incredible... I have a tooth that has a cracked root that went undetected until after a root canal and crown. The garlic clove worked on the pain of an abscess of another tooth so I started using the garlic for the one I had the crown removed but it was not woking as well. I used the teabag remedy that worked a little but when I saw this post and tried the whole clove... VOILA! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU EC!

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
WOW!!! That is all I can say for CLOVES!!! I found this site after searching for a home remedy for this cavity pain I have been having for days.... And everyone kept saying to use cloves.... Typically skeptical, I continued just the use of the prescription pain medication I use normally for my lower lumbar pain and Orajel... The meds seemed to not have any effect on the pain whatsoever and the Orajel only lasted for a few minutes.... At this point I was willing to try anything to just tolerate the pain! So, to the cupboard I went and found a jar of whole cloves.... Put the whole clove inside the hole of the cavity and INSTANTLY the pain seemed to subside!!! I only held the clove there momentarily and I am still in shock that it worked so fast! It has been over an hour and I still barely feel the pain... So THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! I cannot wait to tell everyone how well this worked!! I believe I will make certain I always have a jar of cloves for an emergency like this again in the future!!!
I tried everything for toothache, cloves, garlic etc. The only thing that worked for me was oil pulling with coconut oil. The effect was instant and my teeth ending up shining white after a few days!
Every time now I feel a twitch of a toothache, I get straight in there and use the coconut oil.
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"
buy Barley Grass from New Zealand, its organic.
Warm salt water works like magic to temporarily reduce or halt pain tooth pain. To reduce infection so salt water rinses are needed less or all together, nothing works like olive leaf extract! I wish you could see the look on my face or hear the sincere tone of voice I'd use to convey how awesome it works! I had a wisdome tooth that broke then later got infected. Olive leaf extract healed the infection. I ended up delaying the extraction out of plain ol' fear of the tooth pulling for months with no pain or problems. I don't advise putting off something this serious but if you need time, use the olive leaf extract. I took 2 caps 4 times a day. Let me tell you, its worth it because it works so good! You can tell by the second or 3rd dose that its working! Just this last time, I noticed a few hours after the 1st dose.
After several hours of pain from a rear wisdom tooth that had been sensitive for about a year and turned bad, I tried several things including clove or cinnamon cassia oil to dumb the pain, only thing that worked was swishing a spoonful of real almond extract around bad tooth for about 20 seconds, no pain for about three hours almost instantly will work until I see dentist.
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.
No one can praise the power of good old warm salt water... It helps my toothaches almost instantly and was recommended to me by a respected Dentist. Worked for me again this morning :)"
After reading ths stuff on this site I choose to go to vitamin shop and for 6 bucks got clove bud oil got my tooth psin. I came home tested the taste and it was horrid. The dropper was odd so I choose to put it on a tooth brush and brush my teeth. Fitst the opposed side of the pain and I swished to check for pain tolerance. Then the teeth above the problem area. Finally I brushed my entire mouth and I got really fast pain relief. In the medicine cabinet it went. I may report back with how long it lasts. It's cheap enough where I can brush, then eat a real meal for a change then go back to being cautious. ^5 for better eating lol.
In answer to your question, I always do a Tablespoon. I think it is sufficient. Any less may be too little.
