Some Natural Ways to Get Rid of Toothache
It is fairly common to have a tooth ache, in most cases they will come and go. However while you are suffering from one the pain can be really severe. Therefore it is a good idea to know how to relieve the pain. Obviously you are going to want to find a long term solution and this will require a visit to the dentist. There are however some things that you can try for short term relief until then.
The best way to get rid of a tooth ache is to see your dentist. The most likely reason that you have pain in your teeth is that you have a cavity so getting it filled would be the best thing that you can do. A lot of people are afraid to see the dentist because they are worried about the pain that the dentist may cause them. In reality modern dentistry has reached the point where this is not really an issue. Certainly the pain of a tooth ache is going to be worse than the pain that the dentist will cause fixing it.
When suffering from a toothache, be sure to take note of what causes the problem. Some painful tooth conditions are made worse by contact with cold food or drink, while others are painful because of hot items. Some toothaches come from both. Most dentists want to know right away if hot items cause pain because this can be an indication of more serious problems.
If you are not able to see a dentist and you need a way to relieve the pain temporarily, one of these six Home Painkillers can help you:
· Onion has always been a natural antibiotic. Cut a piece of it, place it where the tooth aches and let it be there, without biting or chewing. Perhaps, you’ll need repeating the process.
· Clove Oil is a common natural painkiller. Get it on a cotton ball and hold it directly on the ailing tooth. Wait till the oil gets completely absorbed.
· Peppermint Oil works the same as clove oil, but it is a weaker analgesic.
· Salt Water gets rid of toothache too. Make a mixture of 1 tbls of salt plus 1 cup of warm water. Hold the solution in the mouth for as long as possible.
· Ice Packs also help to reduce a toothache well. Wrap ice in some cloth and put it on the cheek or jaw, the closest to your aching tooth.
· Medications relieve the pain fast. Try aspirin, ibuprofen or other painkillers. You have to put the powder right on your aching tooth.
There is a possibility that the pain that you are having with your teeth is the result of sensitive teeth. This is usually caused by the enamel on your teeth starting to erode away. The best way to deal with this pain is to use a tooth paste that is designed for people with sensitive teeth. This will help to rebuild the enamel and get rid of your pain. Again you are going to want to your dentist as he may be able to recommend a better solution than the toothpaste.
All of these methods can work to help get rid of toothache, but in the end no one should avoid going to the dentist when in pain. Waiting for tooth pain to “go away” is not a wise decision. A dental professional can diagnose the cause of the toothache and then recommend specific treatment. This might include a filling if the toothache is caused by decay. Sometimes a tooth must be taken out to get rid of the pain permanently. In any case, never treat toothache lightly.
