Tooth Abscess Paste

If there is a tooth abscess with a lot of swelling, you cannot get the tooth pulled until it gets under control. Here is what to do to avoid taking harmful antibiotics and get an abscess under control.



  • 3 parts Slippery elm
  • 2 parts baking yeast
  • 1/3 part cayenne pepper
  • 2-3 drops clove essential oil
  • Water – to make it a paste consistency
  • Garlic clove (small) or garlic capsules-swallow with water

Mix together, add a little water (enough to make a paste). It will be gummy due to the Slippery elm. Pack this mixture around the gum. The Slippery elm will draw out the inflammation. Cayenne stimulates the cells around the tooth to release toxins. Cloves works as a pain remedy, especially in toothache. Hold in the mouth for as much as you can 20-30 minutes and spit in the garbage. Rinse with room temperature water afterwards.

Take a small clove of garlic every two hours, this will resolve the abscess and may actually save your tooth. You may substitute a clove of garlic with garlic capsules or tablets. *Make sure to pick a small clove, the one you can swallow. Take garlic with a glass of buttermilk and do not take it on an empty stomach to prevent stomach sensitivity.

Another option is to mince a clove of garlic and swallow it with a glass of buttermilk or with some honey with water afterwards. Try doing that every 2 hours.


The end result should be this consistency. Swishing it all over the mouth is also an option.

Also check out my Sanguinarian Mouth Wash to prevent cavities and Cavity Healing Tea to remineralize and heal teeth cavities.

I had a chance for a hands on experience in treating a tooth abscess on my 8-year-old daughter that I am sharing at Get Rid Of Tooth Abscess Without Antibiotics.

*I recommend that you consult with a qualified healthcare practitioner before using any recommended ideas written above also if you are pregnant, nursing, or on any medications.

  1. Thank you. It helps with my toothache. Even ibuprofen does not really help. I had one root canal already. The next adjacent tooth has the same pain. It provides some relieve. I want to ask if I need to make fresh batch everytime. I left it for 8-9 hours and I can use it again.

    I tried to eat raw garlic but I get stomachache may be i am not used to with raw garlic.
    I will also try your mouthwash and tea.
    I like to read your other post too.
    You have beautiful and happy healthy family.

    Thank you.

    1. It’s best if made fresh, but yes you could also store the remaining of it in the fridge. I did both, but from the experience I liked it fresh more.

      If you are sensitive to raw garlic, try to take garlic capsules or garlic tablets. It should be for sale at any Natural Grocery Store. Also, try taking it with a glass of buttermilk and do not take garlic on an empty stomach. Hope that helps.đŸ™‚

  2. Thank you so much for the clear instruction. I want to try for my toothache.
    Dentist does not want to do root canal yet.
    But it is a sign of needing root canal tooth.

    1. I hope you will be able to save your tooth as root canal kills the tooth. Hope this works for you!
