Thread: Toothache

    Toothache

    Hi all, does anyone have any bushcrafty, or homemade remedies for raging toothache? Got a loose molar on right lower, and its driving me nuts!!! On waiting list for dentist, have been for 12 months, but no luck so far, so time to take matters into my own hands. Tried TCP, warm salt water and eugenol ( clove oil) nothing working. If I wasnt such a wuss, I'd pull it myself. Any help would be hugely appreciated
    Cheers
    Jon

    I guess the best thing to do is to see another dentist. But in the meantime, you could try chewing Catnip leaves. Strange that Clove oil hasn't worked for you, since that stuff is rather potent. Is the tooth temperature sensitive or throbbing all the time?

    (NaturalNews) Toothaches generally occur when a tooth's nerve root becomes irritated. The most common causes of toothaches are infection, decay, injury, or loss of a tooth. Pain may also occur after a tooth has been pulled. While no one enjoys a painful tooth, the good news is that tooth pain and infections can usually be relieved and healed naturally.

    If your toothache comes from an abscess or other infection, combine the use of 1) oil of oregano topically and internally; 2) colloidal silver topically, internally and for swishing; and 3) warm salt water for alternate swishing as follows:

    1. Take several drops of oil of oregano under the tongue. Hold for a few minutes and then swish with lots of colloidal silver as frequently as once every hour.

    2. Spit out the colloidal silver and then swallow additional colloidal silver (up to 8 ounces total in a day).

    3. Gently rub some colloidal silver into the gum area around the tooth.

    4. After a few minutes, rub oil of oregano onto the gum area.

    5. In between the colloidal silver swishes also do a fairly vigorous warm salt water swish (preferably sea salt) and follow that up with more oil of oregano rubbed into the gums.

    More natural remedies which can relieve and heal painful toothaches
    1. Purchase some ginger root. Cut off a piece of the ginger root and remove the skin. Put the piece in your mouth on top of the painful tooth and bite down on it. The pain should subside very quickly. Keep the rest of the ginger in a container in the refrigerator and replace the piece in your mouth periodically as needed.

    2. Relieve a throbbing tooth with clove essential oil (Syzygium aromaticum). The aromatic chemical in clove called eugenol numbs pain and kills bacteria. To apply the clove oil, soak a cotton ball or swab with the oil and use it to wipe on and around your sore gums and tooth. Repeat as needed.

    3. Take one teaspoon of blackseed oil (Nigella sativa) and 1/2 cup of vinegar and boil. Cool and then use as a mouth rinse to reduce inflammation and infection. Rinse every couple of hours until the pain and/or swelling is gone.

    4. For tooth abscess and infection, put two level teaspoons of salt in a cup. Pour a small amount of boiling water on the salt in a cup to dissolve it and then fill the cup with enough cool water to make the solution warm. Rinse your mouth slowly and well, using all the salt water. Repeat at least twice a day (the more often the better). If this does not work at first, try increasing the amount of salt.

    5. Use a cold pack or other cold items to relieve pain. When you have a toothache, pressing something cold on the outside of your mouth can often give temporary relief, especially if you are having problems sleeping. If you don't have a cold pack, no need to worry about ice that will melt in the middle of the night - simply grab anything from your fridge or freezer. You can use a jar of mustard, a bottle of water, you name it. If the container is frozen, cover with a wash cloth before placing on the skin. Note: Do not take a food item to bed which will spoil.

    6. Supplements which may help clear infection and speed healing include olive leaf extract and bromelain.

    Note: If your tooth pain worsens or persists more than a few days, see a qualified dentist - preferably a holistic one.

    Also just remembered Thymol, the main essential oil in thyme, is twenty times stronger than phenol (carbolic), the standard medical antiseptic. Thymol was first isolated in Germany in 1725 and has been in pharmaceutical use ever since. It was used to medicate bandages and made a local anaes-thetic for dentists. Chewing fresh or dried thyme leaves at home brings emergency pain relief for toothache or inflamed gums.

    Thyme’s rich chemistry includes tannins and phenols that make it bitter medicinally, but it also contains an uplifting sweetness that can be tasted and smelled. In ancient Rome thyme was a mainstream remedy for melancholy. Numerous varieties of thyme are grown in gardens, and any of them can be used but few are as medicinal as common and wild thyme.

    Don't about it too much, when I was seriously ill several years ago my immune system was near zero and I lost all my teeth. If your having dentures of any kind leave it as long as you can, let the gums harden off before dentures are fitted. They do take some getting used to but bitting into a crispy roll made the wait well worth it

    hello,
    I clean forgot about this treatment. I was sorting out a 2nd First Aid kit (new FAK pouch) & found I had a duplicate tube of Oralgel (dental gel) http://www.orajel.com/ I would recommend this gel it does actually work & *numbs any pain very much like treatment received at the dentist. Post use I found my tongue went numb & could say "Abernethy bithcuits th th th.."
    Regards
    David
