How to Get Rid of a Toothache If You’re Terrified of Dentists
There’s only one thing worse than a toothache. And that’s to have a toothache–AND be afraid of the dentist.
So if you’re reading this letter because you’ve got a tooth that’s killing you, or you’ve got a deathly fear of dentists and don’t want to see one, I’ve got a sure fire method that’ll do the trick.
But before I share with you what it is, first let me tell you what not to do. This is critical. It could save your life.
First, don’t take any of the over-the-counter (OTC) remedies. Those things don’t work by design. They’re in cahoots with the dental industry.
Don’t ever drink to kill the pain. That only works in the movies and will only make the toothache worse. Don’t even try squishing the alcohol around in your mouth.
One more thing, don’t try to pull the tooth yourself. It’s dangerous and could cause more harm than good.
Ask me how I know. Yes, I’m well aware of the drastic measures people will go through to avoid going to the dentist.
But a hundred years ago, if you had a toothache… Did you know friends held you down while A BARBER pried and twisted out the rotten tooth, by the power of sheer muscle power?
Yes, a barber pulled teeth, not a dentist. And while the barber was pulling out your tooth, you know what else?
Your friends were beating you with sticks to preoccupy you. If you were lucky, your friends had some liquor for you. And the kid holding a lit candle to your face didn’t trip. If you were unlucky, well, the gaping gum hole that was left probably got infected and you died. Which was why sporting even half a mouth of teeth by the time you were 30, wasn’t just a major accomplishment. It would have been a total miracle.
After all, did you know the smartest people in the world at the time, believed toothaches were caused by a "tooth worm" squirming around and wreaking havoc on your tooth’s nerves?
In fact, quite the opposite. Probably like you, I am terrified of dentists. I’m so terrified, it’s been 15 years since my last visit. Now you may think this is weird, but I’m actually kinda proud of that. Here’s what I’m really proud of.
In those 15 years, not only have I not had a cavity, I haven’t had one single toothache.
And not only that, my teeth are just as bright and clean as if I used those expensive dental whitening systems. People have told me my teeth look as white as a model’s, but the last thing I’d ever do is bathe them in harsh chemicals. I’ll tell you why in a few minutes. You see, my teeth are super healthy. Now you may think I’m just lucky, but that would be the farthest thing from the truth. The truth is, when it comes to dentist, I’m about as unlucky as one could be.
It all started 15 years ago, with an almost imperceptible throbbing lower right jaw. Now at this point in my life, I hated going to the dentist. Every time I went, it seemed I walked out of there with more problems than when I went in. And I’d get charged thousands of dollars for the privilege of sitting in that god awful dentist’s chair.
I’d be in agonizing pain while he drilled, but the dentist either didn’t care or he was incompetent because when he tried to use Novocain, it didn’t numb the pain. He get all frustrated and say it was my fault! I couldn’t believe it. And this didn’t happen with just one dentist, it happened with multiple different dentist. I swear they must have all been trained at the same dental school. Now, I may have not started out that way, but over time I developed a severe phobia of dentists. Maybe like you, I get panic attacks just thinking about them. In fact, I’d be going kicking and screaming if I ever had to go to the dentist again. They’d have to put me in a straight jacket. Luckily, I don’t have to.
That said, about 15 years ago, I woke up in the middle of the night with this persistent, throbbing pain. I took some over the counter painkillers and tried go back to bed, hoping, praying it would go away. No such luck.
In the morning, it was getting worse. So I skipped work that day and headed over to the drugstore. Surely, I could find something that would get me out of pain. Not sure what would work, I bought everything. Potions. Pills. Powders. You name it. Three hours later?
The throbbing was incessant. No matter what I tried, it didn’t do the trick. It seemed like the more I thought about it, the more I obsessed over it, the worse it got.
By night, I had full on toothache. Intense pain. And I didn’t know what to do. But I knew one thing. There was no way, I was going to the dentist. You probably feel the same way. Have those sadistic dentists put me through that medieval torture, again? No way. In my book, it was the last time I would ever be abused by the likes of them. I had to find a way. I was desperate.
So I tried something else. I was in luck when I googled all the toothache home remedies on the Internet. Maybe you’ve researched them.
With a toothache, these don’t really kill the pain, but they will reduce the throbbing a bit. Maybe dull it for a little…
