Home Remedies for Dental Abcesses

February 16, 2018 by Dr. Andrew Smyth

There are actions you can take at home to relieve the pain.

  • Avoid food and drink that is either too hot or too cold.
  • Chewing on the side of your mouth without an abscess will probably be less painful
  • Do not floss around the affected area.
  • Use a very soft toothbrush.


While home remedies can help make a person more comfortable while they wait for treatment, it is important to visit a healthcare professional for treatment to avoid any of the complications of a dental abscess.
