What's The Best Toothache Remedy At Home?
When you are suffering from toothache pain, natural remedies can be some of your best friends. This article will teach you how to treat the pain naturally without having to rely on drugs or other unnatural treatments. Read on for natural ways to treat toothache pain and get back to living your life!
First of all, prevention really is your best defense so be sure to implement a good oral hygiene plan. Brushing and flossing your teeth in combination with a good diet is still the best treatment plan for your teeth.
Unfortunately despite the best plans, cavities and toothaches still happen. A trip to the dentist is likely the best course of action but there are also some natural, drug-free remedies you can use in the short term to help eliminate pain and discomfort.
Try one or all of these suggestions. I've personally used all of them at one point or another to varying degrees of success
first of all, try to remove any and all sugar from your diet. Sugar will feed any infection that may be lurking so it needs to be eliminated as much as possible.
Use a teaspoon of pure unrefined virgin coconut oil. The coconut works as an antibacterial and will help clean your teeth and help repair your gums.
You can also make an excellent toothpaste by combining 1/2 cup coconut oil with a tablespoon each of sea salt and baking soda. Blend together and use to brush. Just be sure to spit it in the garbage after you're done, not spit it down your sink. It will cause a clogged drain in no time.
Rinse with a solution of sea salt and warm water. This is one I've used a lot. Simple but highly effective. Rinse for 30 seconds several times a time as needed.
Use clove oil: Clove oil is a natural analgesic, meaning it helps to reduce pain. It can be used as an oral rinse or applied directly to the toothache. To use as a rinse, mix two drops of clove oil with half a glass of water and swish around in. mouth for 30 seconds. Spit out and rinse with water. To use as a topical treatment, place one or two drops of clove oil on a cotton ball and hold against the toothache for up to five minutes.
Treat tooth pain naturally: If natural remedies don’t relieve your pain, you might have an infection. In this case, it is best to see a dentist who can prescribe antibiotics or other treatments that will help resolve the problem.
