Just thought I would share my research.:D: Gives the tooth a nice warm tingling sensation. Im not promoting alcoholism, my parents were, I know what thats like. Im just relaying the info.. ya know, just in case the SHTF, you develop a tooth ache, and then run into someone with some whiskey. Just good to know:thumb:

heroin helps with a tooth ache also but i wouldn't recommend it. why not stock up on oragel?

whiskey is made for drinking not "healing".

When I had a toothache, I swear it hurt so bad that I was SERIOUSLY thinking about cutting it out with my knife. It was on a Friday night so no dentists were open anymore.

Whiskey did help. I held it in my mouth over the tooth and it soothed it until i swallowed. It seemed that when the tooth hit air it would zing me again. One of the most painful things I could remember.

Orajel doesn't heal either LOL it just numbs the pain. Fishmox and pain relievers is where my stocks are now.

Heat will help also, I would use a hot water bottle. just hold it against your cheek.

A little off subject, but my Mother told me that her Grandfather would dig his bad teeth out with a knife :eek:

Man I was glad I didn't try personally. The Oral Surgeon was cracking tendons that were attached to the tooth and pretty much bracing himself on the arms of the chair to get enough leverage to yank it. It was a molar :xeye::xeye:

Yeah they get loose when you get old. chewing garlic helps sometimes, it's anti-everything. whole clove will kill the nerve pain but it will give you a pretty bad burn in your mouth

I still think those old timers were tougher back then.

Chew a clove of garlic, I'll go with the whiskey.

That it does!

It also helps when the novicane wears off after an extraction.

edit: Gotta be Jameson Irish Whisky tho':thumb:

chugging whiskey doesn't really sound all that sustainable to me
i don't currently have a still or know how to operate one to make the stuff
propolis on the other hand is readily available to anyone who has access to bee hives
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Propolis

pack the stuff directly into the affected area and not only does it numb to pain, but will help prevent the spread of decay. it will last in there for a while and not need changed out for a week+

honey bees are gods gift to humans
remember, they shouldn't even be able to fly let alone make honey (which heals wounds better than pretty much anything else and will keep forever as long as it is kept dry)

Iv actually used whiskey for a gum infection. The dentist I saw afterwards said it would work short term but the gum would re-infect itself straight away when you ate etc.

Tannin in teabags is a good one, you just stick the bag on the gum and leave it there.

Clove oil also works short term but with repeated use will kill the gum off.

The pain is generally caused by bacteria working on exposed nerves. Gargling with whiskey, listerine or any anti-bacterial wash will temporarily break down the bacteria and alleviate the pain.

My grandfather had a leg removed with only whisky as a painkiller. It'll work, but I'd rather use another option if available.

I used to have lots of toothaches and I too found that alcohol worked. Any kind of strong alcohol. I would just swish it around the affected area for a bit, it would burn like hell but in a good way. Then spit it out. It tends to instantly numb the pain and then works for quite a while after. If the pain would start again, I would repeat the swishing. Several times I managed to hold off going to the dentist till I had saved the money to go (several months).

Clove oil also numbs but is too strong and burns the gums and also doesn't seem to work as long.

I used to wonder if the alcohol was also killing the bacteria.

About 2 years ago I had some toothaches and used the local "Rakia". This stuff is extremely strong, and did a great job.

I actually seen how whiskey works on a toothache. Ii was on Gunsmoke they held a bottle of whiskey up and had the patient stare at it then they knocked him out with a mallet and then pulled the tooth. Yep works every time. :D:
