Home Remedies to Get Rid of Wisdom Tooth Pain


If you’re one of those people whose wisdom teeth are causing excruciating pain while trying to push through the gum, you might want to explore some home remedies that can reduce the soreness and swelling. Since the problems often start during the night, it can be particularly useful to be equipped with some knowledge that can help you deal with the discomfort when there are no dentists around. Wisdom teeth, or third molars, are the last to come out. They usually start growing between the ages of 16 to 25 or even later. Since by then your mouth is already full, they can struggle to erupt, especially if your jaw is small. Pain, swelling, difficulty chewing and biting, irritation, headache and bad breath are all connected to the so called impacted wisdom teeth. Sometimes, the trouble-making teeth need to be pulled out. In other cases, you might be able to find relief with some home natural remedies.

Home Remedies for Wisdom Teeth Pain Relief

  1. Garlic

Chew raw garlic to experience the soothing anti-inflammatory effect. Or, crush the clove slightly so it starts emitting its potent chemicals and hold it against the aching tooth.


  1. Salt

Reduce the pain by gargling saline water. Add a tablespoon of salt to a cup of warm water and swish it around your mouth regularly.
Combine garlic and salt. Make a paste by crushing 1 to 2 garlic cloves and add some rock salt. Apply on the aching area.


  1. Onion

Chewing on onion is another tested home remedy. If chewing proves to be too painful for you, place a slice of onion on the sore area. Alternatively, you can extract some onion juice and dab it on. Shallots, red and yellow onions tend to be more effective compared to white and sweet onions.

  1. Tea tree oil

This essential oil, historically used in the Aboriginal medicine, can be rubbed directly on your gums; you can also massage the affected area for a few minutes. If you find it too potent, mix it with a half teaspoon of olive oil and use a cotton ball or your finger to access the wisdom tooth.


  1. Guava leaves

If you can get hold of some guava leaves, they can help you relieve pain as they contain analgesic, as well as anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial, substances. You can chew on some young leaves to release the juice or make a mouthwash.
– Guava leaves mouthwash: Boil a few leaves for about 5 minutes. Strain the water and allow it cool. Use it as a mouthwash a couple of times a day.

  1. Clove

Clove is a natural pain killer due to its active ingredient eugenol. Use the whole spice, its powder or clove essential oil.

  • Whole spice: Hold the cloves close to the affected area (you’ll soon experience the numbness); when the cloves become softer, chew on them to release even more of the healing substances.
  • Ground clove powder: Take a pinch and apply to the painful area.
  • Clove essential oil: Put a few drops on a cotton ball and hold it against the wisdom tooth. If it feels too strong, you can dilute it with olive oil.


  1. Wheatgrass juice

Wheatgrass is another natural antibiotic and it draws the bacteria and toxins out, which reduces the pain. You can use wheatgrass juice as a mouthwash or chew on the fresh wheatgrass shoots slowly (spit them out after a while).

  1. Peppermint

This herb is another old remedy that withstood the test of time and can be taken in different forms depending on your preferences and availability. It soothes the pain and kills bacteria thus preventing the onset of infection.

  • Apply whole leaves: put the fresh leaves in your mouth and leave them for 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Make a tea: Drink a mixture of hot water, salt and peppermint leaves.
  • Use it as a mouthwash: Put a teaspoon of dried peppermint leaves in some hot water and leave it for 20 minutes. Use the solution as a mouth wash and a gargle.
  • Peppermint essential oil: Put a few drops on a cotton ball and hold it against the wisdom tooth. If it feels too strong, you can dilute it with olive oil.


  1. Vanilla extract

Vanilla extract is often mentioned as a natural remedy for wisdom teeth pain. It is made from vanilla beans, ethyl alcohol and water. Pure vanilla extract needs to contain 100 grams of vanilla beans per liter. You can apply the extract directly onto the affected area. The easiest way is to use a cotton ball and hold it in your mouth for a few minutes.

Note: Vanilla extract is not the same as vanilla essence. Vanilla extract is usually a natural product, while vanilla essence is chemically produced vanilla flavoring. Check the label before buying or using as a remedy.


  1. Sage

Sage has a broad spectrum of uses. It not only reduced pain, but also helps with mouth sores, bleeding gums and gingivitis (inflammation of the gums). You can also make antiseptic tooth powder with sage and sea salt. For wisdom tooth pain relief make the following mixture:

  1. Mix 2 teaspoon of dried sage and 1 teaspoon of salt in a shot glass.
  2. Pour in some alcohol: whiskey or vodka will do.
  3. Leave it for 5 minutes.
  4. Use the solution as a mouth wash and swish it around your mouth for a few minutes.
  5. Repeat 2 to 3 times or until the pain is gone.


Additional tips:

  • Use an ice pack on your cheek above the painful area.
  • Avoid hard foods and foods high in sugar.
  • Drink plenty of water.
  • Brush your teeth and tongue regularly and floss between your teeth.
  • Practice relaxation and deep breathing for pain relief.


You might need to experiment a bit before you find the right remedy for you. If the pain doesn’t subside and you’re experiencing other symptoms as well, a visit to the dentist is a must.
