In answer to your question, I always do a Tablespoon. I think it is sufficient. Any less may be too little.

Tooth Pain: Fill the tooth with clove powder. Works better than anything.

Vitamin C

if you have a tooth ache and don't want to go to the dentist, here is a cure: take 1000 mg of vitamin C plus one capsule of Echinacea Root. Make sure it has 450 mg of Echinacea and take it twice a day for about 2 weeks. The pain will go away and then you don't have to take anything. One more thing -- don't take them all at once, take them like 9 am and 9 pm or some like that. if you can't take the pain take some pain pills with it. I have a bad tooth and no pain and i don't take any thing for it.

I went to Whole Foods for the clove oil everyone has said works for tooth pain but all I found was essential oil in clove bud which said on the label to avoid using it near eyes, ears, and mouth so I didn't think it was what everyone had used. Can someone tell me what clove oil is used inside the mouth for tooth pain? Thanks!

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.

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.

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.

Green Tea

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.

How much alum is needed? Does alum need to be mixed with water?

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 been suffering from toothache and gum problems for a very long time. I used this site to take suggestions of using turmeric and honey. My gum problems are almost gone in a week or so. Thanks.

Activated Charcoal

Hi Julie, thank you for your post. I'd like to ask how long the charcoal poultice should be left around the teeth, and how often the poultice should be applied to the affected tooth. Thanks and look forward to your reply. God bless.

Barley Grass

Hello! I wrote in awhile back about a molar I had had a new and very deep filling in. It was still sensiting to cold and chewing on it was hard to do also. Well, it is now over a month since the filling was put in, and four days ago I started taking some barley grass in water - About one half of a teaspoon 2x a day the first day, building up to about a teaspoon in 12 oz of water first thing in the morning, 1/2 tsp in the afternoon, and 1/2 tsp before bed - (as it seems to relax me, not energize me as some say it can do).

Anyway - I do believe my darned tooth might actually be getting better! The cold sensitivity is no longer shocking me like it was. Such a relief. I know it may just be a coincidence, but I don't think so. After reading about barley grass and finding out how many minerals it has in it, I think it might be just the ticket. I am keeping my fingers crossed!

I have a question about the barley grass origin though. I just ordered some more online and after ordering it I found out this particular brand is grown in China. It is from S----W---- Botanicals, and it has very good reviews on the vitamin site I bought it through (and the price is amazing as well)... BUT! - Now I am wondering, if it is from China how well regulated their food grade products might be? Does anyone have any idea on that? Weren't they the ones with the adulterated milk products a year or so ago? Shoud I be concerned?

I would also really appreciate hearing from anyone else who is or has taken it, and what their experiences were! :-) Thanks!

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 :)"

Worked Temporarily

Tried clove powder on my painful broken tooth w/ cavity. Worked for a day then stopped. Tried clove oil and oregano oil,also tried baking soda. All worked for a day and stopped. Had to resort to pain pills but have keeped with taking clove and oregano oil diluted in olive oil(needs diluting or will burn)for infection. After a week or so of taking pain pills the pain has mysteriously faded to an ache. Will continue with natural antibiotics till I can have the tooth pulled. Very sad the natural stuff didn't work for the pain.

I had a really bad toothache with throbbing pain radiating out from my tooth and taking over half of my head. I tried the clove essential oil on a cotton swab rubbed on and around my tooth. My pain is gone. I have to reapply it every 4-6 hours when it starts hurting just a little again. It is really strong tasting, so I have a glass of juice ready to get the taste out after I apply it. Thanks for the good advice, Earth Clinic!

I love oil of cloves. I had a tooth extracted on Monday and the next day I had a dry socket. I went to the dentist on Thursday and they packed it, which was very painful. I read here about oil of cloves and went to my local health food store today and bought oil of cloves. I 1st put it on a piece of gauze with very little relief, I then put it on a Qtip and put it on the tooth site and I have NO PAIN now. Thank you so very much for this site.

God Bless

One time when I had a terrible toothache on a weekend and also had no insurance, I called around trying to find a dentist who would see me. Finally one dentist told me that there was a product available at the drug store called Tooth Aid. I went and got it and it was a God send. The package contains cotton balls, the bottle of medicine and a pair of tweezers. You dip a tiny piece of cotton into the bottle and squeeze out what you can. Then you try to get the small piece between the two teeth nearest the ache. It can be hard to do if the teeth are close together. It did work beautifully and took away the pain for quite a long time.

When one of my children had an abcess, I couldn't get the cotton between his teeth and the oil began to burn his gums, so I found a better trick that I now use all the time. I get a q-tip wet with water and then barely touch it to the medicine. Then I rub it on the sore spot very gently. This finally provided him with relief. Used this way I had to do it more often but it didn't burn his gums. Since that time I've found other similar products at Walgreen's and Rite-aid that I've purchased. They all seem to have Eugenol as their active ingredient. I think this is a form of clove oil. I also coupled this with Melaleuca Tea Tree Oil. One of the properties of the tea tree oil is that is pulls the infection to one spot, which makes it easier to 'pop' and drain.

One last tip that I used to use before I found the oil trick. When I was in severe pain the only thing that helped was to rub a baby aspirin on the gums by the sore tooth. When I told the dentist how I made it through till I got in to him he warned me that this can do damage to the gums, but at the time I wouldn't have cared because the pain was so severe. Hope this helps someone.
