I used multiple things to help draw the infection out. I used tea bags and hot salt water. However when bedtime came around I was ready for some pain relief. What really worked for me was Turmeric. I got the loose powder and put in some distilled water to make a paste and packed it into the cavity hole. It works but when I realized I wanted a little more relief I had the idea to make the Turmeric paste and add two drops of Eugenol (clove oil) into the paste. That really did the trick. The turmeric paste held the clove oil in place for a numbing effect while also reducing inflammation and I was able to sleep all night.
I have a tooth that has been on the edge, since I lost part of the filling. It started throbbing and kept me awake the first night. That’s when I got out my arsenal! I immediately started with tumeric tea (Tumeric – as much as you can stand, 1/3rd Almond Milk or Almond Oil, some vanilla flavoring for taste and the balance with hot water). I made 6 cups during the day and as I went about my day, I just swished the tea around on the upper side where my tooth hurt.
Late in the afternoon, I peeled about 6 garlic bulbs (not kidding) and sauted them in olive oil (about 25 pieces). I ate every one (its a good thing I like garlic! ) By late evening, the horrible swelling had gone down and I had this “nub” of swelling between my jaw and cheek. The throbbing had completely gone away by this time. All of a sudden, the “nub” burst and now I am back on the mend! I really love Tumeric Tea and Garlic!
Turmeric, Salt, Clove and Garlic cured my abscess
2 years ago my former dentist did a half-assed job on my root canal. I have had problems ever since, with infections every few months. A few days ago I woke up in incredible pain, the worst I’d ever experienced. Immediately went to the dentist and he put me on antibiotics, but there seemed to be no solution to the immediate pain I was in. Took ibuprofen, nothing. Tried vicadin, zilch.
So I did a little research and finally got some relief by putting a chewed clove right next to the infection – instantly the pain began to ease up, but the swelling would not go down. I tried gargling with listerine, using warm compresses, but to little effect.
Finally I hit the jackpot.
1 cup of warm water1 teaspoon salt1/2 teaspoon turmeric
I gargled/swished with this for literally 10 seconds, and the boil just opened up and all the garbage literally shot right out – didn’t even need to apply any pressure. With the abscess drained I applied a slice of fresh garlic to the opening, which stung like hell, but it has also helped the infection and reduced swelling. I could actually chew food again!
I returned to the dentist today and he was astonished at how much this thing has cleared up. Granted there is no saving the tooth now, and I will definitely need to get it pulled. But I am thankful to have found relief in the interim and hope this remedy helps some other poor soul out there.
Nobody deserves this type of pain!
Fingz, dont pull out the tooth. Try oil pulling for a few days with coconut oil. It will heal your tooth. Decide whether you want to pull out your tooth only after you have oil-pulled with coconut oil for a few days.
a great painkiller and infection fighter for tooth/gum/abcess pain is turmeric for $4.00 or less in your local grocerie store in the spices section. I was amazed when I used it how it took away the pain and inflammation. just a teaspoon in a bowl with just enough PURIFIED WATER to make it the consistency of wet mud. You can use a cotton ball or a small cut piece of cotton cloth with a blob of wet turmeric ( careful- it is what mustard stains are made of), and place it on the tooth so it can seep between the teeth and to the abcess, the taste isn’t that bad, especially when you can’t sleep or anything w/o pain. If you are lying down, don’t forget to take out the cotton ball/cloth before you fall asleep. Also, rinsing prior with PURIFIED WATER, 1 teaspoon of h202 (drugstore kind ok), and 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda ( organic-about $3.57 a lb. bag but goes very far when using small amounts. I don’t care what Arm and Hammer says, they put something in their bs because organic is MUCH more body friendly). Have the turmeric ready to go in before you rinse because it can be painful if the abcess is bad but the turmeric is also a painkiller. When I think of all the times in my life I used oragel just to cry myself to sleep-ughhh! As usual, how long it takes will depend on the severity of the infection but it sure worked for me. MANY BLESSINGS TO YOU.
How often should I apply the turmeric paste? So far I'm applying once every 30 minutes and I have felt zero relief. Am I putting it on too often or what? Thank you
I just want to report back on some of the treatments for tooth abcess.
I had a bad crown that would bother me occasionally, but I would manage it with a mixture of half baking soda, half seasalt which I put into my blender and ground to a fine powder. You use it as toothpaste. This is an old Edgar Cayce formula for teeth and gum health, and it works great.
Anyway, it flaired up and the salt/soda combination couldn’t stop it from progressing. I unfortunately was just changing from one dental plan to another so I fell between the cracks and had to wait a week to get some treatment. The pain was becoming unbearable! Anyway, I was reminded of your website so I looked it up and decided to try the slippery elm, charcoal, clove oil, baking yeast paste.
By this time it was appearent that the abcess was at the root of the tooth and was begining to push the tooth up and it seemed that the paste was unable to really penetrate into the jawbone to effect it…and the pain was getting worse! I read further in that article and the gentleman also recommened taking Turmeric and I remembered that it was ideal for boils also. So I thought, what is an abcess, but a boil in the jaw?
So I made up capsules of half turmeric and half cayanne pepper. Sure enough, within a hour or so, it started to reduce. Encouraged, I decided to go to straight Turmeric and have been taking a heaping teaspoonful in a glass of warm milk sweetened with Stevia 2-3 times a day. It actually tastes pretty good!
Bottom line is that the pain is greatly reduced and I am convinced this could completely cure this problem, but I am going to the Dentist monday anyway to get this crown properly fixed.
Turmeric has kept these last few days from being an absolute nightmare! By the way, I started taking Levaquin (a powerful antibiotic) about 5 days ago, and it did NOTHING! Thank you and thank God for this site!

Hey, I currently have a tooth abscess and it is killing me and has my cheek an mouth numb, I went to the Dr. afterwork to get antibiotics but they wouldn’t give me an Rx because they said they didn’t have any appointments available and needed to assess me prior to dispensing medications. When I got home I thought of the remedy for boils which according to this website is tumeric. Well, it seems to me the concept of a boil & a tooth abscess are basically the same. A boil is infection under the skin accompainied by poisonous blood and puss w/inflamation and the same with an abscess but surrounding a bad tooth. So last night when I got home in severe pain (could hardly open my mouth). I put a tsp of tumeric in some applesauce (still almost threw it up) but to my surprise the swelling went down and the pain subsided. It’s late morning now and I am beginning to feel a slight discomfort, so I plan on taking more tumeric. Hope this helps someone else.
After a long history of cysts infections around dead teeth in my upper jaw and several surgeries I have finally found my cure THANKS to your great site. Thursday morning my cyst got infected awfully, read about turmeric here on friday and started taking two caps right away. next morning the pain was gone except for pain when i would pressure the area. Today, Sunday, even that pain is almost completely gone and i feel like a new person! still taking 2 turmerics a day, will go down to one for the next 4 days or so and see. special thanks to FRAN.
