If you have an abcessed tooth. Here are some remedies that I have come across. I have never tried but in case of an abcess the best thing to do is to get an antibiotic which most dentists will provide. They won't work on or pull an abcessed tooth. So if you are in pain with an infected tooth (and I have had a couple of these; they are miserable)here is what I found to try.

-Try using raw garlic. Cut a small pieceof garlic clove and stick it right on the problem. It will sting a little after a bit. So take breaks and then reapply with a new chunk of cut garlic everytime it hurts until it gets better.

- A very warm tea bag will help draw the abcess out and the caffeine and heat will help with the pain.
