You're experiencing some serious pain in your mouth, and you think a dental abscess, a bacterial infection in the teeth or gums, might be to blame. Are there any home remedies for abscessed teeth that will help ease the discomfort while you're waiting for your dentist appointment?
You have a few options for easing the pain, but home remedies won't get to the root of the issue and aren't likely to cure the abscess. Instead, think of home remedies as stop-gap measures. They'll help you in the short term, but they won't replace a visit to the dentist.
