10 Best Home Remedies to Treat Painful Toothaches
A toothache is considered one of the worst pains you can ever experience. It won't let you sleep and concentrate on anything, but itself. A visit to your dentist is recommended, but can be an expensive deal. Painkillers can be addictive and harmful in longer run. Before latching on to these measures, we recommend you to try a few home remedies which will ultimately suppress your pain for quite a long time, and may also treat it permanently, if possible.
Let us have a look at 10 best home remedies that can be used to cure gruesome toothaches.
1. Keep a fresh garlic clove over the hurting tooth. Chew to release its juice on to the affected area. Although it tastes awful, but is a very good remedy.
2. Drench a swab of cotton in clove oil and keep it on the hurting tooth. Spit the excretions. Effect is ultimate and good in longer run.
3. Running ice on the affected tooth can alleviate the pain in quick time. Actually, it lessens sensitivity to that area and reduces sensation of pain.
4. Place a cotton swab drenched either in tequila, brandy or whiskey on the affected area. Effect is wonderful and quick. Remedy is not meant for infants though.
5. Apply almond extract on the painful tooth. Vanilla extract can also be used. Pain is temporarily alleviated.
6. Swoosh mouth with warm saltwater multiple times a day. It not only relieves ongoing tooth pain, but also keeps mouth/teeth free from any future infections.
7. Mix salt and pepper in a little bit of water to form a paste. Apply to the affected area with help of a Q-tip. Make sure the pepper is spicy. A very effective home remedy to treat toothaches, indeed.
8. Chewing wheat-grass can prove to be enormous help in treating toothaches and pains. Wheat-grass in liquid form can be swooshed multiple times a day. It provides overall mouth hygiene and keeps away toothaches for future.
9. Place a thin slice of lemon on the affected area. Press to squeeze the juice towards painful tooth. You can also add a bit of salt to lemon juice to make a paste, and then apply topically to the painful area.
10. Take the teabag out of warm tea and place it on the painful tooth. Bite it strongly. The warmth provided by the teabag and pain relieving properties of tea alleviate your pain.
