Toothache? Try these Home Remedies

There are several factors that contribute to a toothache. Often the ache is started by an external agent like germs or bacteria. In the initial stages the bacteria causes mild pain; later on it can lead to the formation of cavities and tooth decay. A lot of people ignore toothaches until a time when they can’t bare the pain anymore. Some people are not able to get dental assistance due to lack of finances. If you are unable to visit a dentist there is no reason to live with the pain of an aching tooth. There are plenty of home remedies to help you to get rid of the pain or reduce it.

Clove oil is a natural pain reliever. If you don’t have clove oil then you can chew on a clove to reduce the impact of the pain. it prevents the bacteria from growing and spreading thereby reducing the pain drastically. Clove oil is very strong and hence you need to dilute it when you are using it to reduce pain.

If you do not dilute it the oil may cause a stinging sensation in the mouth. Dilute clove oil with 2 parts of olive oil. Dip a cotton ball in the liquid and then place it in your mouth on the side that is in pain. Bite into the cotton ball for a few minutes; you will feel the pain reducing naturally.

In order to destroy the bacteria in your mouth chew on a mix of garlic and rock salt. The anti bacterial properties of the garlic will destroy the bacteria in your mouth and prevent them from spreading to other parts of the mouth and destroying other teeth as well.

If the pain is caused by cavities then you need to mix pepper powder in clove oil and then massage the oil onto the gums near the aching tooth. Apply pressure while massaging the gums in order to get rid of the germs and bacteria from the mouth.

Rinse your mouth with vinegar to get rid of the germs in the mouth. This will also help to alleviate the pain in your mouth. Massaging the gums with lemon juice also reduces the pain in the mouth.
