Finally, whiskey is good. It not only helps with the pain, but it also stops you caring about it. (Also can damage the liver!)

I second the suggestion of whisky as if whisky doesn't cure it, it ain't curable. A good bottle of white works, too, if you're on a budget and just want something simple. (though if you do go for the whisky or wine, don't take the ibuprophen as you want to keep your liver). Not to mention drinks are loads more fun and relaxing than an herbal suppository (seriously?! LOL WTF TEE HEE).

Teeth are proof that there is no such thing as a kind and benevolent creator...
To be honest, even though my ancestors were fierce Scottish warriors and strong highland lassies, I don't like whisky...... and I am really ashamed about it, believe me.... but my dad put me off drinking whisky for life when he let me taste when I was 6. And I guess that was the whole idea behind letting me taste.

OK I have overcome my dislike and must say whisky works *hickss*

...Sticking with the Ibuprofen should be fine though, and it's not unusual to need them for this length of time, nor is it particularly likely to cause any harm unless you have known issues with them (I've been on 3*600 per day for the last six years).

Dear me, what does your liver think of that??
Not much at all. As someone else pointed out, you may be thinking of paracetamol. Aspirin and similar (incl ibuprofen) don't really bother the liver, just the stomach lining in some people. Fortunately I'm not one of them:-)

It is not normal to need such a huge dose for such a long time. I am sorry you are in such constant pain.
Well I would be without the drugs. My spine, ribs, sternum and all the connecting bits were pretty much mangled, so I'm happy to be able to lead a pretty much normal life, TBH. Oh, and thanks.

Aye, if scotch canna fix it, nothin' will. Drink lots of water before bed and rub some on your gums around the tooth before tucking in for the night.

As an aside, I once had an abcessed tooth that, of course, started going bonkers after midnight one night. Even whisky didn't help that one and I nearly harmed myself trying to get anbesol (some tooth anesthetic) onto the tooth in large amounts, missing the target, and having it hit my airways. By morning, it looked like I had a tennis ball in one cheek. I have never in my life been so happy to see an endodontist with a drill in all my life. I think I wept on the chair as they gave me some anesthetic. Teeth are the devil.

Why do abscesses always start at the worst time?
I had one which developed overnight while we were camping in the Lake District, my jaw swelled, there was pus oozing from my gum , I was in agony and I overdosed on paracetamol and oil of cloves (undiluted ).
I got myself to a dentist in the local town and could have kissed him when he gave me a prescription for antibiotics, the pain seemed to subside after the first few tablets. The worst bit was the root canal work I had to have when I got home .

How are you this morning McG's D?
I hope you are feeling better, and not too hung over .

Re: OK-I will finally ask for toothache remedy

I, too, would have recommended oil of cloves and whisky, had they not already been mentioned; and I'm aware camomile is used a lot as a natural cure-all.

So the solution (literally), may be a concentrated brew of camomile tea, add same measure of whisky, and a couple of drops of oil of cloves, and then swill around the mouth, before swallowing.

I'm fine, thanks. Not hung over. I didn't need much to ease my pain, I remember MG's SIL eyeing me suspiciously when I went through our spirits ("What are you looking for?") and I poured myself a small glass, I first kept the whisky in my mouth and then swallowed it and it immediately did the trick.

Yes, I was thinking more of paracetamol but NSAIDS can impact the liver. I would hate to see random Forum readers think it is okay to consume such a high dose for such a long time. You have likely discussed it with your doctor and found it is the best solution for you.

Now to the tooth pain - My guess is that since you already have a lot of anti-inflammatory in your system, you need an analgesic for the tooth pain. In that case, paracetamol is a good option, and you can safely combine the two for short periods of time. Or just throw back some whiskey. Sounds like a good idea to me and worth trying!

I had a rather complicated dental surgery last week Monday and since then I have had terrible pain in my upper jaw and could only bear it by taking ibuprofen 600 every 10 hours. Back to the dentist on Friday and she says it just takes some time.

Now it seems to be a bit better and I was wondering what I could do to speed up the healing process, for I am tired of eating soup and other soft foods

And please don't tell me to see a dentist. I have been twice.

don't roll your eyes... but Homeopathic Arnica will speed up the healing and bruising, I watched many implant surgery patients and other invasive procedures get fast remedy from it.

This is true. But paracetemol specifically is dangerous in overdose because of the damage it causes the liver. If you OD on paracetemol, there is a real risk of liver failure and death. If you OD on ibuprofen, you'll be ill for a while, but it's highly unlikely to kill you.

Re: OK-I will finally ask for toothache remedy

Day 3 without painkillers. I don't know if that's due to the whisky or the natural healing process but my life has become 100% better and I can actually eat again.

Re: OK-I will finally ask for toothache remedy

Going through the same, extreme pain after 2 filling replacements and the pain just wont stop.

Took paracetamol, ibuprofen and some stronger stuff the dentist gave me but they don't seem to catch on. Thank god it let me sleep for 2 hours but the pain in general is always there.

I have been reading on home remedies and see clove oil is a good choice but don't have any. Any idea where one can buy some in Zug?

I have garlics, chamomiles, lemon, a few different tea herbs (herb louisa (lemon verbena)), vodka, rum, salty&pepper, cinnamon.

Any idea of combinations of these to make me feel better? I'd love to get my hands on some clove oil but couldnt find anything in coop/migros and it's all closed now.

Re: OK-I will finally ask for toothache remedy

Brilliant news.

At Christmas, sil had terrible tooth pain when they were over. I didn't have cloves oil, and the chemist's was closed, so I crushed a few cloves with a little olive oil in a pestle and mortar, than sieved through a cotton hankerchief into a small bottle with a dibber which I had- and he said it really helped.

Re: OK-I will finally ask for toothache remedy

When I had a deep filling it took a couple of months to settle down, avoid eating or drinking anything very hot or very cold, as that can trigger the nerve pain.

Re: OK-I will finally ask for toothache remedy

I will try clove oil first thing on Monday assuming I find a place in Zug/Zurich that sells it.

Thanks for your comments, unfortunately I don't see any tips for home remedies with the materials I have. I need to be better prepared, damn I hate everything been closed on Sundays.

Re: OK-I will finally ask for toothache remedy

Our local newspaper has a list of emergency chemists open at week-ends- if you go outside the hours stated, they will charge extra- but otherwise I think there is no extra charge. If you phone your local police or emergnecy number (ours is 144) and state your area and that your require a chemist- they will give you a list.

Re: OK-I will finally ask for toothache remedy

I don't think it's normal to hurt that much after such a procedure.

Some years ago I experienced very severe pain a few hours after a major cavity filling. Obviously it had to be in the evening just before Holy Friday...

I went to the on duty dentist, and he discovered a pool of blood had formed under my new filling, thus the tremendous pressure pains. He had to do an emergency root canal.

The cost was almost as bad as the pain though...

One part clove oil to two parts olive oil - otherwise it's likely to damage your gums.

Chewing on aspirin I've found particularly effective. Tastes foul but does the job.
