What causes toothache? Find below all possible causes of toothache.
Dental caries (tooth decay): a small cavity in the protective enamel of the tooth can lead rapidly to tooth decay. If left untreated, the tooth beneath the enamel will begin to rot, it attacks the deeper structures of the tooth, causing severe tooth pain. When the process progresses the inner core (pulp) becomes affected and infected the tooth may die. In case of dental caries toothache home remedies represent only first aid help, please organize a dental treatment!
Gingivitis (sore gums): inflammation of the gums, when the gums become purple-red, soft, shiny and sensitive and bleed easily especially when you clean your teeth. If gingivitis is left untreated, then pockets of infected pus can develop at the base of teeth, followed eventually by gum boils and loose teeth. Cure for gingivitis is extremely important. Home remedies may give tremendous help, keeping gums healthy or healing gingivitis.
Cures for Gingivitis
Best is to clarify the situation with a specialist and tailor the treatment according to the underlying cause.
Suggestions below are only first aid toothache helps of course.
So, lets see now our valuable home remedies for toothache:
Our best old home remedy for tooth ache is CLOVE (Syzygium aromaticum)
Cloves for Toothache
Another kitchen option is using clove powder around the tooth or fill the tooth with the powder. You can empty a tea bag and put the clove powder in the empty tea bag and place this clove bag in the mouth.
My last suggestion is clove oil for toothache: essential oil of cloves is a handy toothache relief. Rub the oil on to the aching tooth and around the gum this will anaesthetize the whole area. Don't overuse it as you may burn your gums. You can also dip a piece of cotton wool into some clove oil roll into a ball and stick it into the painful part of the tooth. Clove has antiseptic and painkilling properties which work immediately after administration. Within 5 minutes you should be pain free or at least in less pain. Cloves are great toothache remedies!
Another great toothache relief and kitchen remedy is our good old GARLIC (Allium sativum)
You can simply chew a clove of raw garlic, or rub it on the gums and the particular tooth for about 5 minutes. It causes burning and throbbing of the gums, but it is OK.
Another good but not very tasty solution is to dip one clove of garlic in rock salt and to place on the affected area.
You can also make a garlic-mouthwash: crush a couple of raw garlic cloves (4-10) in cold water (a glass half way filled). Swish this elixir around the infected, painful area.
Share my experiences from Linda Anderson (Texas): 'I once had a cavity in a jaw tooth. I had heard that witch hazel helped with toothaches, so I rinsed with witch hazel. I also applied witch hazel to the tooth with a q-tip. The tooth quit bothering me and I forgot about it. I went to a dentist a few years later. He said I had a dead jaw tooth and he pulled the tooth. I later remembered about the jaw tooth giving me problems and ask the dentist if witch hazel would cause a dead tooth. The dentist didn't know if it would. But when I applied the witch hazel it felt like it was drawing out an infection. I believe the witch hazel worked for my toothache. I can't remember how many days I used the witch hazel on the tooth, but if you have a toothache give witch hazel a try.'
If you can't stand the smell of onion or garlic, than you may try another toothache remedy - GOLDEN SEAL, the yellow root (Hydrastis canadensis) which is old folk medicine in the US. You can use a piece of the yellow root itself or Golden seal tincture - put it on the affected area (helps especially with tooth abscess). Leave it in your mouth as long as you can stand it.
Dentists often suggest an ICE PACK in case of oral inflammation and severe tooth pain. It helps with the swelling and keeps the infection from spreading. Put it 5 minutes on and 5 minutes off. It is better using ice cubes, than deep frozen stuff. You may combine it with other toothache remedies mentioned earlier.
Learn about the ancient ayurvedic method of Oil Pulling
