Effective toothache pain relief can be achieved naturally and easily.
Although it is always advisable to seek proper treatment for dental pain it is possible to reduce the impact of the pain until this treatment can be arranged. There are several natural toothache remedies that people have discovered to be effective. Nature often provides help in combating disease, illness and pain and can be highly effective in dulling the pain and misery attached to an aching tooth.
Remedies for Toothache Pain
Probably the most popular home remedy for toothache is the use of cloves or clove oil. Cloves contain a natural anesthetic that will dull the pain. Clove oil can gently applied to the aching tooth and will at once help to heal the infection and cause the pain to lessen. The oil can also be applied to a cotton ball allowing the sufferer to gently bite down ensuring that the oil acts upon the affected tooth. The same also applies to Tea Tree oil as its properties are similar to those of cloves.
Activated Charcoal is another tried and trusted home remedy that is effective for toothache pain relief. When mixed with water to form a paste it can be applied to a cotton ball and again it can be gently bitten down on. The charcoal ‘soaks’ up infection and is also a disinfectant and works well in reducing the pain of an abscess.
Vanilla extract may also help lessen dental pain as it contains alcohol and when applied will gently numb the area. It can be applied by using a clean finger or with the use of cotton balls. It also has antiseptic and analgesic properties and has proved to be highly beneficial to lots of people. It is important to use only real vanilla extract and not a diluted version in order to achieve the best results.
Many people apply heat to the affected area as the heat increases blood flow allowing more blood cells to fight the infection. A simple heat pad can be used or a sock filled with rice can be warmed in a microwave. The sufferer can then rest the affected part of the mouth on the warming pad. This treatment can be highly affective when combined with other toothache pain remedies.
Chewing on garlic may also help as again garlic contains both antiseptic and anti bacterial properties. The smell of the garlic on the breath can be lessened by chewing on basil immediately afterwards.
