Updated on June 11, 2009

How to Stop a Toothache with Common Over-the-Counter Medicines

How to Stop a Toothache with Common Over-the-Counter Medicines is a little misleading.

Sure you can take a couple of painkillers -- and probably should! -- when toothache pain hits. This will help ANY other cure you may try.

But below are some innovative ways to use common over the counter medicines that we have found.

Will these work for you? Maybe -- but every person is different.

But these are easy to try to every one of these has its supporters.

How to Stop a Toothache

Vicks Vapor Rub

Apply a dab of Vicks Vapor Rub on the side of the face where the pain is. Place a paper towel on top and lay down in bed. The heat from the Vicks absorbs into the skin and brings you toothache relief.

Hall's Cough Drops

Halls Cough Drops have a small amount of anestetic in them. Pop a couple into your mouth and let them disolve.

Listerine or Other Mouthwash

Many mouthwashes, like Listerine, kill bacteria. Most toothaches are cause by bacteria eating into the soft tissue of the tooth. You do the math. Try gargling Listerine.

Maximum Strength Orajel Gel

Okay, this is actually recommended for toothaches -- but it doesn't hurt to mention it.

Colloidal silver

Not sure about this one, but we have seen it mentioned several places. Colloidal Silver can be found at health food stores. It may have antibiotic properties. Hold a dropper-full under your tongue and then swallow twice daily.
