Toothaches – Natural Home Remedies To Alleviate Tooth Pain

1. Onions – onion consumption works wonders in relieving toothache and oral infection. Reliable and established studies have confirmed that onions (raw) have anti bacterial and anti septic properties. Chewing raw onions for a few minutes will do the trick. If chewing is painful, you can just hold it on the affected area. It should be freshly cut though. Don’t use your leftovers that had been sitting in the fridge for days!

2. Garlic – Another natural home remedy for toothache is utilizing garlic cloves. You may have heard that garlic can boost one’s immune system and have antibiotic uses. However, the use of garlic for tooth pain relief, I’d say, is not plain anecdotal. Certain chemical called allicin, that happens to be an active component of garlic, has antibiotic properties that can slow down bacteria build up. So the logic is, when bacteria decrease, so does the pain.
To use garlic as a natural remedy for toothache, take a clove, smash it and apply directly on the affected tooth. If you feel a burning sensation, don’t worry. The release of allicin causes that sensation and should immediately help alleviate the pain and reduces the odds of having infection as well. For better results, you can add a bit of rock salt.

Hint: It is best to use pepper as herbal remedies for toothache caused by cavities. Pepper does not only relieve pain but it is also a simple solution for bad breath problems. Now that’s a plus!

There you have it, a list of easy, (almost always) readily available toothache herbal remedies. By now, you should be able to face toothache when in comes knocking! Aside from utilizing the above mentioned natural herbal remedies for toothaches, you will benefit in getting to know the necessary preventative measures to lessen the chances of having toothache. It may sound as a cliché but really, “Prevention is better than cure”.

 

Toothaches – What Can I Do To Prevent The Pain?

Toothaches and the pain associated with them can be prevented by adopting these practices:

  • Seeing your dentist at least once or twice a year.
  • Avoiding too much sugar intake by reducing the consumption of foods and drink that are high in sugar (i.e. soft drinks, candies). That said, I think having a “sweet tooth” is a no-no if you want to stay away from toothache.
  • Regularly eating foods that are rich in Calcium and Vitamin C.

A number of herbal and natural remedies for toothache can provide great relief.

Given that ground, preventative care should not be overlooked. And to add, even if these home remedies will liberate you from pain, these are not guaranteed to last for a long period of time and may just bring short term pain relief.

Consulting with the nearest local dentist, who is familiar with natural herbal remedies is highly recommended for anyone who have prolonged and severe pain caused by toothache.
