Two days in a row I was in such agony that I felt like I lose myself. Literally. Lucky you guys that can take pain relievers. I can't because I'm pregnant. And paracetamol just can't remove the pain. Went to the hospital for further medication, but unfortunately now is Sunday, so I have to wait for tomorrow. I just can't take the pain and I have to Move my butt to take care of my toddler. Then whoa! Mother in law just called and suggested to use garlic as natural remedy. I am a nurse but I did't think garlic will ease the pain but there were no other meds. Omg! It really worked! Thanks to GARLIC!

Yeeesss thank you for garlic. If you are in doubt just do it. I was skeptical at first but when you're in this much pain I was willing to try just about anything and so glad I tried the garlic!

Garlic is a natural wonder. Unbelievable how quickly it aided in my throbbing abscess tooth. I have needed a crown on an old bad molar for 2 years and been avoiding the dentist, mistake on that. But until I can get to the dentist next week, a slice of Garlic placed on the side of my tooth and held there for 5 minutes DID WONDERS. It did sting and burn a little, but after the initial pain the toothache has subsided about 95%. Unbelievable. After more research, I decided to chop up a few fresh cloves of garlic very small and throw it in my soup for lunch. Garlic has major healing remedies and can fight infectious bacteria in the body. My dentist told me that was a great idea and it can fight major infections. I love you garlic!

I was amazed how well this worked, I would have been happy with 50 percent relief, I had about 90 - 95 percent, what a difference. I was afraid to try this, as I worried it would really make me sick. I just sucked on the juice till it was mostly absorbed, now I can sleep and wait till I see a dentist. Thank you for natural remedies like this, and for others that share their experience. It did sting, but kind of like strong mouthwash. Up till then I had tried store numbing medicine and an ice pack, both of those gave little relief. This is the best.

I honestly can't believe it. My toothache started on Monday and so I got an emergency dentist appointment. The dentist told me that she thinks I'm grinding my teeth and that's what's caused it and so she filed down the tooth and gave me some amoxicillin just in case it was an infection. I started taking the amoxicillin at 6pm on Monday but by Wednesday afternoon the pain got worse. She said she thinks the tooth is still alive and therefore doesn't want to cut it out and fill it and so she gave me metronidazole to take alongside the amoxicillin. Since Monday I have been taking paracetamol and ibuprofen alternatively and they literally haven't touched the pain. I gargled a bit of a salt water and that did reduce the pain by about 30%. Waking up at 4am in pain this morning yet again I trawled the Internet looking for something that would relieve this pain, 4 days straight and who would've thought that a bit of garlic that had been sat in my pantry the entire time would do the job! It stung but not as badly as others have made out on here and I chewed it so all the juices came out and then kept it there for 2 minutes. Once I'd spat it out my tooth was throbbing and I thought it hasn't worked, I've just made it worse. Once the throbbing stopped I couldn't believe how much it had reduced the pain, I'd say by about 90%! I've woken up 5 hours later and the pain is still a lot less than it was, I'm not sure if that's the garlic or the antibiotics are starting to take hold, either way thank you for this thread! Garlic is amazing and so underused.

Garlic is the king. I am now in less pain as I say garlic is still in my mouth. But pains are going away. Thanks for your advice with garlic.

I was having a toothache for several nights. I crushed a small amount of garlic and placed it in the affected area and less than a minute the unbearable pain was no longer there. Trust me the garlic good!

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.
