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.
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.

My fiance has a really bad toothache. How do I use hydrogen peroxide in his mouth?
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.
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.
MMS (Miracle Mineral Solution) gets a bad rap but it really is a miracle. Activate about 6-to 10 drops of MMS with an equal number of Citric Acid drops. Wait 30 seconds and then add an equal number of drops of DMSO. Add about 1/2 tsp of distilled water. Apply the entire solution on painful tooth. Then swish it around in your mouth for 8 to 10 minutes. The DMSO penetrates to wherever the bacterial infection is. Usually works after just one application, but you can do it a second or third time if needed.
I love Bentonite Clay. Instead of penetrating to the source like MMS/DMSO, it does the opposite--it draws out all the bad stuff. I load up a toothbrush a few times and pack it on the tooth and gums. You can do this directly on a painful cavity. You may need to do this more than once as your saliva will dissolve the clay.
last time i had tooth ache, i tried chewing tender twigs & leaves of neem tree & it seemed to help. if one repeats this more than two to three times in a day, each time chewing for about 15-20 minutes, the pain will start subsiding, & provide lot of exercise to the mouth, which otherwise would be unthinkable in such times.
I saw oil of oregano and olive oil for toothache on your site. I decided to take a piece of floss and drench it in the mixture. I used about 4-5 drops of oregano oil to 1/2 teaspoon of olive oil. I moved the floss thru the mixture in the top of a prescription bottle cap. I put the floss thru my teeth where it hurt. Did this for 2-3 days and pain went away. Thanks for your beginning Earth Clinic. My favorite health site.
Oil of Oregano
Oil of Oregano is by far the number 1 remedy for tooth pain. I suffered from pain after having a crown put in. I was scheduled to go back to the dentist for a procedure to have the crown drilled to remove nerve endings to put a stop to the pain. Well, I bought a bottle of Oil of Oregano that had 70% carvacrol, brand name Solaray. I put a few drops on a cotton ball and placed it on the bad tooth and just bit down. It was kept there for about 15 minutes but, just after about 1 minute I could feel instant relief. Oregano oil worked for all my friends that had a tooth problem too! Oregano oil is NOT the herb in your kitchen cupboard, so don't make that mistake. It also works for other problems too and I always have a bottle in the house. No ands, ifs, or buts about it oregano oil will kill the pain almost immediately! Oh, I never had to go back to have anything done with my crown.
I tried oil pulling for a toothache and to my amazement, it worked.
I used Olive Oil 3 times a day and in 3 days my pain was completely gone.
I am continuing the process for further healing.
I had the worst tooth ache on Tuesday night of this week. So, swished my mouth with 3% hydrogen peroxide. It didn't do anything for pain, so I ended up taking two tylenol to sleep. Wednesday morning the tooth ache woke me up around 7am. So, after getting my self started for the day, swishing with the hydrogen peroxide and brushing my teeth. I took 2 more tylenol and searched for a dentist online. Found one who could see me after work at 10pm.
Of course I didn't think about the cost until a little after arriving to work at 1. I took 2 more tylenol at 2 and then 7. I ended up canceling the appt. as I didn't have enough cover the cost and I refuse to get the credit option they gave me. By the time I got off work at 9:30 I was like okay we have to try something else cause I knew the pain would be back soon. So, when I got home I swished with hydrogen peroxide, a hour later oil pulled with organic virgin coconut oil and brushed my teeth. Around 2:30am the pain was coming so I took 2 more Tylenol. I slept well and my alarm woke me up a 9am. I was happily surprised to not have any pain in my tooth, however my left cheek was swollen and tender to the touch.
I swished with hydrogen peroxide and brushed my teeth and I just knew that it was working. As the day went on the tenderness and swelling decreased. I didn't take any tylenol all day. Yeah!!! I'm home and I oil pulled after dinner. An hour later I swished hydrogen peroxide and brushed my teeth. I know tomorrow the swelling and tenderness will be practically gone. I'm so glad to no longer be in mind numbing pain and that Mother Nature has taken care of me once again. I plan to keep following this protocol until the pain and swelling are gone. I have a dented appointment at the beginning of the month, hoping to have pulled all of the infection out by then so all they have to do is pull or fix this broken tooth. I will keep you posted!!
