Topic: remedies for toothace
It doesn't matter what reason there is for a toothache, it's difficult not to pay attention to it, and a lot of individuals would rather use household remedies for toothache instead of visiting a dental health professional. There are many reasons for this; perhaps you just don't like the dentist, or maybe you don't have insurance. If you ignore a toothache, it will just get worse and worse until you are finally forced into action.
Although it is only temporary, some household medications like ibuprofen or aspirin when taken in proper doses will alleviate pain for a period of time. A heating pad or ice pack can also help for a while, but again, this is a short-term fix. If you have an infection a heating pad could make it worse, so don't use one unless you can't do without it. Ice is a great short-term anesthetic.
It is really helpful to know why you are having the pain. Do you have any of these issues such as an abscess, infection, decay, cracked teeth, or food stuck between your teeth? Yes, this can cause pain too! So to begin with, rinse your mouth out very thoroughly and brush and floss your teeth to be sure you don't have anything stuck. There will be times when you don't even notice that it's there. If this is the cause of your pain you'll be just fine once you get rid of the offending food particle.
If this has not worked either to stop toothache, use a saline rinse. If your gums are sore, this rinse will also be beneficial for that soreness too.
