How To Get Rid Of A Toothache | Self Healing Techniques Series

January 23, 2013 by admin | Filed under Self Healing, Su Jok, Toothache.

Of course, the best thing to do is to see a dentist. However, in cases when you can’t do that, whether it?s due to circumstances or when the toothache appears suddenly, or even when you did visit a dentist and it didn’t help getting rid of the pain, in those cases it is possible to relieve or even completely get rid of the toothache with the help of Su-Jok Therapy.

Where To Find Acupressure Points That Will Help You To Get Rid Of The Toothache?

The most effective way to control toothache is to apply pressure on points that are located around your thumb nail. You will have to find which acupressure point is corresponding to your aching tooth. If the aching tooth is located in the lower jaw, then its corresponding acupressure point will be located near the end of the nail (i.e. edge of the finger). If on the other hand, the ache located on the upper jaw, then the corresponding acupressure point will be located near the root of the nail, i.e. where it starts to grow.

You can use the thumb either on the left or the right hand.

How To Apply Pressure On The Acupressure Points?

With the aid of a massage stick or a similar object such as a toothpick, or the end of a ball-point pen (without ink), find the most painful spot that is also corresponding to the aching tooth, and massage that spot thoroughly, for several minutes. Usually, the pain will be diminished or even disappear entirely. If it didn’t help check again that you used the right acupressure point. After that, thoroughly warm-up that spot with the help of a Moxa (mini-Moxa would work best) and then attach a buckwheat seed with a help of a band-aid. From time to time, apply some pressure on the seed. It can remain there, until the pain goes away.

    just tried your tooth healing technique and i’m impressed by the results. i have had unbearable pain for three days and after trying this for several minutes it has greatly reduced the pain, will continue with this, thank-you for putting this out there

  2. Heidi says:

    I have to say that this is the only thing that has worked for my tooth pain. I have a lower tooth that needs to be pulled and when it acts up it is the worst pain imaginable, I can’t function. I have tried pressure points on my feet and my hand, between finger and thumb, but those did not work on my tooth pain. I was so surprised that after just a few minutes my pain was almost gone!!! Thank you so much for posting this!!!

    so true….. Thank you very much for sharing. :-)

  4. Loren Amelang says:

    Your tooth numbers and tooth size drawings suggest the tip of the thumb connects to the upper jaw, but your labels there, and your text, say “lower”. My quick experiment says lower is correct. I’d guess you copied a tooth number chart image and combined it with a thumb that happened to be pointing toward the top of the image. If you turned the thumb 180 degrees, and swapped your text labels, the tooth images and numbers would be correct.

    • cat says:

      No, the text and pictures both show and say same thing. The text says if pain is on lower teeth then pressure point will be at tip of nail-picture shows tip of nail is for lower tooth pain. Text says upper tooth pain will use the pressure points at base of nail. Picture shows the base of the nail is UPPER, and the tip of the nail is LOWER…it says what it shown

    Okay, I’m now a believer. Not sure how this actually works, but it does. I had sudden inexplicable tooth/jaw pain. I took 800mg of Ibuprofen and it didn’t work. I know I don’t have a cavity – regular cleanings and check up, but the pain…I was just ready to leave my office before I happened on your site. I’m truly, truly amazed. Thank you for sharing such valuable information!!!

    Thank you for posting this information. I have suffered from a bad on again/off again toothache for the last week. Whatever relief I found was extremely temporary. Now my teeth still hurt, but not nearly as bad. I think I can function, but now I’m too tired to. I’m going to try to sleep and use this method again if I have any more trouble. Thank you again.

    Gr8 tip for toothache Felix. It is really amazing remedy. God bless you !!
    It has become so difficult for chewing salad and chewing even cooked rice.

    I applied blue Color on the skin around the nail and to my surprise the pain of my affected tooth and the other teeth started decreasing after half an hour.

    Thnx once again and hope the added Color therapy tip will be helpful to children who would not be able to bear the pricking pain also with acupressure Jimmy.

    The next day, I tested applying blue Color on toe thumbs and got continued relief.

  26. Douglas M. says:

    I am having this toothache (tooth #31)for which my dentist has said I have to have an extraction. Ive had the next tooth to it (tooth #30) already extracted about a month ago, and I dont want to through such again. I have an appointment for that tomorrow.
    Apart from this exercise which provides me with pain relief, any other thing or therapy to help me avoid the extraction? The tooth looks healthy on the outside but the sensitivity and pain of either hot or cold things touching it is what is the problem.
    Please any help to save my tooth from being extracted???
    H E L P…!!!
