Natural Ways To Care For Your Teeth Ache

According to Healthline, toothaches can be incredibly painful and uncomfortable, and they often require immediate attention from a dentist. However, there are some natural remedies you can try at home to help alleviate the pain and discomfort associated with a toothache according to Healthline.

1. Rinse your mouth with warm saltwater for some seconds to help reduce inflammation and kill bacteria.

2. Apply a small amount of clove oil to the affected tooth and surrounding gums using a cotton ball. Clove oil contains eugenol, a natural anesthetic and antiseptic that can help you relieve pain. You can also swish a tablespoon of coconut oil or sesame oil in your mouth for 10-15 minutes. This can help you reduce inflammation and kill bacteria.

3. Crush a garlic clove and apply it directly to the affected tooth for a few minutes. Garlic has antibacterial properties and can help you reduce pain and inflammation.

4. Brew a peppermint tea bag and let it cool. Apply the tea bag to the affected area for 15 minutes. Peppermint has numbing properties that can help you alleviate pain.

5. Apply an ice pack to the affected area for few minutes at a time. This can help you reduce inflammation and numb the pain. Also, apply pressure to the webbed area between your thumb and index finger. This is believed to help relieve pain.
