Patient Comments: Toothache - Remedies

Have you ever tried a toothache home remedy that worked?

The very best thing for real toothache pains is always just an apple, really. A little slice of apple, you just gently much on it, kills most severe mouth pains pretty quick. It puts the vitamin C right there where it's needed, on your sore gums and teeth, and starts killing all the bacteria instantly. You also just need to munch on a slice of apple, all day long, like gum, and it keeps your mouth clean all day. Other fruits do work, green grapes seem to help, but not quite as well as ordinary green apples.

I just had a very painful abscessed tooth, the only thing that would lessen the pain was holding cold water in my mouth.
