I have an abscess on my gum, I was in horrific pain. Took garlic and swelling went down and pain is gone, pain killers are still in the bag.

I just got my wisdom teeth removed. I was on multiple pain killers but the pain was not going away. The pain was in my gums and it hurt to even move. I came across the garlic and scoffed at the idea but I changed my mind and decided to try it. I didn't have fresh garlic, but I had garlic powder. I shook some garlic powder into the bottom of a cup and added a splash of water to create a paste. I used a q-tip to apply it to the affected areas. Within minutes I had relief. The pressure released from my head and ear. It does burn, is hard to keep in your mouth, and makes your breath reek but it is totally worth it. I finally managed to get more than one hour of sleep at a time. I don't recommend putting he garlic right on the extraction site.

Fresh garlic is the only thing that gave me relief during the week I had to wait before I could get dental treatment. It really does work.

I have a broken molar, which has now got an abscess under it. Insane pain that the painkillers just couldn't get under control. Two treatments of raw garlic just pressed between my teeth, for at least 5 minutes, has brought the pain to a manageable level, while the infection gets brought under control. Unfortunately the tooth needs to be removed, but at least the pain is now bearable.

I've been having the absolute worst pain the past two nights because of a loose filling and can't get to the dentists till next week due to the holiday. Garlic gave me immediate relief. Oh my god this is a god send thank you so much I can sleep in peace now.

Yup it worked. Mom and dad grind some garlic and salt and pain is now barely there, it burns but it works. Thank you everyone.

I just spent the night in agony with a hole in my molar where previously a filling had fallen out. I saw crazy claims on here that garlic works, well I'm astounded, it actually does work, been chewing on a clove of garlic and I have no pain now, it was excruciating!!!!! sleep time now, all thanks to this site! I cant describe how happy I am!!!

I had the worrrrst toothache for about 2 days, pain from an old filling that fell out. The nerve pain literally made me want to run out in traffic. The entire right side of my face throbbed and it hurt to eat or drink anything (warm or cold). I tried everything- holding ice which only worked momentarily, salt water, popping ibuprofen like candy, anbesol, nothing worked. I ran to the dentist only to not be able to get an appointment until Tuesday meaning I'd have to spend the entire weekend in agony!! As a last hope I came across this site and ran to the store and bought raw garlic bulbs. I've never tried garlic but I figured anything was game with the pain I felt. I cut half the bulb and popped the whole thing in my mouth and slowly began to chew at first I didn't feel any burn but oh man! when that spicy fire hit I couldn't keep the garlic in beyond 5 seconds and the pain while numb was still there. So finally I carefully peeled and smashed the bulb until the juice peeked through - and I placed it directly on my cavity, slowly biting down (not chewing) I was able to hold it for much longer and glory!! Immediately relief!!! Within seconds the pain was gone and I spit out a little bit of blood from the infection and after doing that 2 more times for a few moments no more blood and full relief. It is very hot with a numb similar to anbesol but so worth it. I also used sugar free orbit gum to act as a temp filler until I can get to the dentist next week. I slept like a baby through the night and woke up with absolutely zero pain!!! Thank God for garlic!!! Now I can enjoy my weekend and even had a full breakfast this morning! My teeth also seemed whiter!!!! Thank you for this page and praise the Lord for garlic!
