9. Oregano Oil

Oregano oil contains antibacterial and antioxidant properties, making it a good remedy for an abscessed tooth. It also boosts immunity and helps the body fight tooth infections and speed up the healing process.

  • Apply a few drops of oregano oil directly on the affected tooth and gums and leave it for at least 15 minutes.
  • Prepare a mouthwash by mixing 3 to 5 drops of oregano oil in ¼ cup of warm water. Swish this solution in your mouth for about 10 minutes, then spit it out completely.

Repeat either of these remedies 3 or 4 times a day.


10. Peppermint

Peppermint works like a miracle when it comes to pain due to an abscessed tooth. It has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that help reduce inflammation as well as prevent the spread of infection.

  • Rub a few drops of peppermint oil on the affected area using your fingertips for a couple of minutes.
  • Also, extract fresh peppermint juice from the leaves and apply it on the affected tooth.

Follow either of these remedies a few times daily.

Additional Tips

  • Apply a cold compress on your cheek near the aching tooth for a few minutes to get pain relief.
  • Drink ½ glass of wheatgrass juice daily on an empty stomach to get relief from abscessed tooth discomforts.
  • Brush and floss your teeth twice daily.
  • Always use toothpaste containing fluoride to reduce the risk of developing an abscessed tooth.
  • Use an antimicrobial mouthwash to rinse your mouth properly to prevent infection.
  • Change your toothbrush every 3 to 4 months to ensure proper cleaning of the teeth.
  • Stop using tobacco and quit smoking.
  • Avoid chewing too much gum.
  • Limit consumption of sugary items and rinse your mouth properly after eating sugary items.
  • When suffering from an tooth pain or infection, avoid caffeine.
  • Follow a healthy diet.
  • Visit your dentist for regular checkups and professional cleanings.

  1. Love this site very interesting never heard of these remedies I will try some of them especially the remedy about tooth pain.

  2. Be careful with the clove or clove oil. I burnt my gums because no one informed me of a time period of the clove oil being on the tooth/gum. Always check what the result might be.

  3. I have done the clove before….it works really well. I also love using peroxide when I brush my teeth, and it helps get rid of germs and keep your mouth clean, it helps keep away bad breath odors…I know this is a tooth site but if you also have a foot odor problem, soak your feet in water with about a cup of mouthwash…works awesome and now I dont have to smell my husbands feet…lol

  4. I have an abscess tooth and I used the salt water but I added vinager to it. This worked very good the pus pocket popped and relieved a lot of the pain and that helped until I could see a dentist.
    I love this site .

  5. one trick have discovered is natures very own antibiotic and that is buy a root of ginger and chop of about an inch and skin it then chop it up and put into a pan of water and bring to the boil then simmer for 5 minutes. in a mug put in at least a table spoon of raw honey and pour the ginger tea into mug and stir and then top up the water in the pan and leave for about four hours when you can then bring the pot to the boil then empty contents and restart. you need to drink this at least 4 times a day and after third day you will feel a lot better and no pain and abyss will have gone.

    1. I would love to try this method but I’m finding the directions difficult to follow. Is there any way someone could clarify them for me. Thank you!

  6. Currently have an abcessed tooth, and while it doesn’t have sharp pain, it aches like no other. I’m going to try the oil pulling, salt water, peppermint oil tips to see how well it works. I’ll post back in a couple weeks to give y’all an update.

  7. I have severe pain and it goes up to my ear and my jaw hurts as well any helpful ideas for this severe tooth ache will be greatly appreciated

  8. A Dental Professional informed me that I have several tooth infections. I deduced it was due to a previous “dental student’s” botched work. Fortunately for me none of those resulted in excessive pain! I’ve run the gamut from flossing w/Oregano Oil to Oil pulling and even usin dropper of Cannabis Oil, which may have been extremely effective, t(us far. I will attempt the Clove Oil. I’m also swishing w/ ACV, Turmeric , Himalayan Salt, Black Pepper & warm Distilled Water, feels as if it is working!

  9. I used the baking soda and Hydrogen peroxide solution and it took away my pain immediately! I also brush my teeth with baking soda and it makes my teeth look whiter and my mouth feel clean and fresh.

  10. Woke up with abscessed toothache at 1a.m. in the morning. Pain was really bad and gums and face swollen. I took 3 ibuprofen immediately. At 1:30 still a lot of pain and discomfort. Researched home remedies for abscessed tooth and immediately tried hydrogen peroxide with baking soda paste at 1:45. At 2a.m I am feeling a lot better now. Pain is almost gone it seems like swelling has shrunk a little also. Time to get some sleep. Thank you

  11. If you can get ahold of some bovine colostrum capsules you can break them open and dump the stuff on the tooth and chew. Don’t wash it away. Best to do right before bed after you’ve brushed your teeth.
    If you are getting an upset stomach from swallowing the stuff that weeps out, half a shot of clear alcohol like vodka, rum, or tequila really helps the digestion.

  12. After taking Aleve, rinsing with salt water, rinsing with baking soda, rising with apple cider vinegar, using a bc powder mix, I chewed on a fresh half garlic bulb which instantly stopped the throbbing and aching. The garlic burns a little and of course there is the odor but I am at home today so I don’t care. Will repeat this or try garlic powder mix until I can make an appointment for the dentist. Thanks for these tips.

  13. Thank you for sharing, I tried ginger though it was awful but the pain was instantly turned into relief. I was thinking about hydrogen peroxide but found it a bit difficult as compared to ginger so I went with the ginger and it worked.

  14. Thanks for the tips, going to try rubbing salt on, if that fails a garlic clove, &/ bicarb soda, as do not have others ave a big bubble in top gum so cannot eat, tried wine no go! Paracetamol no hope, dentist open tomorrow so shall be the 1st one there, many thanks for hopefully a good night’s rest

  15. I had excruciating pain last night, abscess grew today so large I looked & sounded deformed! Thank you for your posts used salt 4 times salivating into a tissue, pain free a decent night’s sleep for me! A poet didn’t even know it. Finding a dentist Monday so thanks guys for your wisdom & knowledge, saves a dentist the next dreary visit!!!!

  16. I have a chronic root inflammation caused by bacteria living in roots after badly done root canal.
    None of the above worked for me. Last two extremely painful episodes (throbbing pain, unable to even touch the tooth!) I was given antibiotics by doctors and usual painkillers worked max 4 hours. Had to use maximum does too which was not safe at all.
    This time I did something different after reading an article about starving bacteria infected mice.
    I stopped eating sweets, pasta, white bread, fruits and so on. It is called low glycemic diet. I also drank a few shots of whiskey or vodka too. Apparently it also lowers glucose too.
    The pain was meanegable by low doses of ibuprofenum on the 2nd day!
    On the 4th day I did not have to take any painkillers. The tendernes around the tooth is almost gone.
    I hope this helps someone.
