    Cloves help with a tootache but I don't know about an abscessed tooth. He can either just put a whole clove inbetween his gums and cheek near the sore tooth or rub clove oil on it. I don't know if that's okay to do with an abscess but for a regular toothache it's okay. Sorry he's in such pain.

    The only thing I know of is an antibiotic. Maybe go to the ER?

    Yeah, the infection can get into his bloodstream. Definitely don't wait. For pain with my abcessed tooth, I was told to take 2 ibuprofen with 2 tylenol and to down them with fruit juice (berry, not OJ). Amazingly enough, it worked wonderfully! Good luck.

    STOP the peroxide! Mild dilution of salt water at the most. The peroxide can make it worse. Explain to him that one abcess tooth can take the surrounding ones too. Not to mention what has to be done if the abcess invades the bones.

    Rub the palm of your hand with ice to relieve tooth ache pain & take a tea bag steeped in hot water as hot as is comfortable and place directly on abcessed tooth, the teabag will help draw out the pus
    Why not learn to enjoy the little things - there are so many of them.

    Re: What is good for a quik fix for an abscess tooth?

    Can you ask family or neighbors if they have any leftover antibiotics lying around? I got a bad toothache over a 3 day wknd and borrowed antibiotics and pain meds...(I know....but when you feel like your face is going to explode, you'll do anything). No extremely hot or cold drinks or food either...that will set off the pain. Hydrogen peroxide not only gets rid of the infected tissue....it eats away at the good, healthy tissues...so don't use that anymore. Good luck, nothing's worse than a toothache....get to the dentist Monday morning if you can.

    Get a mouthful of childrens ibuprophen(the liquid kind) and hold it over the tooth as long as he can, then swallow. That has worked for me. Hope he feels better
