pain relief

Post # 1
hey, for the past week my jaw's been killing me, because one of my wisdom teeth is growing again. i can't exactly angle some ice or frozen fruit to sooth the pain, so i was wondering if anyone knows of anything to help. thanks. [and no, i can't pull it, my dentist says it's too shallow and close to the nerve]

Cloves?

First, I would suggest some ibuprofen or aspirin, if you have either are not allergic to them.
Dalmation sage is used to help soothe pain caused by bones and displacement, so possibly chewing on some of it so that the oils get into the root of the problem could be something looking into.
As well, mint is used to dull pain, so chewing on something with a natural mint flavor could be beneficial.
Anyone else have other ideas?

Typically oil of clove is used to ease toothaches. Check your drugstore in the toothcare aisle for remedies to relieve tooth pain. Often you will find that the basic ingredient in these is oil of clove.

There are some other interesting suggestions for relieving tooth pain at http://voices.yahoo.com/natural-remedy-toothache-pain-6660742.html I've never tried any of them myself, so I can't speak for their efficacy.

^_^ thanks guy's i'll try them.

*EDIT* peppermint seems to work the best, i don't have any clove oil, and the cloves i do have are dried so i'm not sure how well that would work. vanilla extract worked alright for about an hour [thinking it was a placebo]

I know your pain well! At 23 my one wisdom tooth came in and it took nearly 2 years to fully expose itself. It was hell! It felt like labor without the cute baby at the end to look forward to. =p

What worked wonders for me was a hot compress of peppermint on the outside of my jaw and a hot gargle of salt and garlic powder in green tea. Make sure to swish and gargle it for a good 2-5 min. I would make a big mug of it and keep taking swigs of it, swish it, gargle and spit.

Another option, wet a tea bag (black or green) and put it in your mouth over the tooth. Keep it there for 20-40min. It's a natural anti-inflammatory due to the tannins. The more expensive teas have stronger tea bags (or you can purchase them) so the tea bag doesn't rip and cause leaves to get in your mouth.

Another sure pain solution is chewing a slice of raw garlic over the tooth. It will burn like crazy, but then you will feel 80-100% pain relief for a while.

Cinamon is fast acting but burns at first.

T_T way to scare my WhiteRav3n, i'm 23 and now i'm worried this will last 2 years. i hate the taste of peppermint, but it's been working wonders. i'll try the green tea, salt and garlic though.

i've got tons of cinnamon in my house, i'll try that too. [starting to feel like a guinea pig for pain relief. so long as it works i don't care]

Take a lavender bath, it calms and will put a halt to your headaches for good.
