I have a toothache now for about 6 days. I called a couple of dentist, and they are not seeing new patients until March, April. It stop hurting a day or two or ago and now it's hurting again. If anyone have any home remedies, please share.

You know I still have the dreaded toothache, I could not sleep two nights again. I remembered I had a tooth filling and the dentist told me use warm water with salt, and I tried it. I felt a lot better.

try gargling listerine, and using sensodyne toothpaste...there's this gel available in stores here in singapore , called Bonjela i think...or is is benjola...haha...but it's eomthing like that. it comes in a blue tube. it kinda works for me, but i have to reapply it quite often. anyway get well soon.

Try mixing salt in warm water and then gargling it in your mouth.It will help relieve the tooth pain.I used to apply a gel which stops the tooth pain.It gave me relief for sometime.Try taking calcium supplements in our body.It will good strength to the teeth and prevent it from falling.

Yea, the warm salt water helps. The problem is per the dentist I have infected wisdom teeth so they are going to have to pull them out.
