Toothache Relief

Having a toothache is uncomfortable even if you only have mild toothache pain and toothaches can be very painful at times, but you don’t have to suffer in silence, there are a number of toothache home remedies and methods that provide quick and easy toothache relief.

Toothache relief methods

The first thing to do is to try remove some of the harmful bacteria and infections from the gum and teeth. Rinse you mouth with warm salty water regularly to do this. Try not to use any harsh mouthwashes. This will provide some toothache relief and ensure your mouth is clean. If you think food is stuck between your teeth gently floss your teeth. Wheatgrass can also help to remove harmful bacteria and relieve toothaches.

Next you will need some kind of painkiller to provide toothache relief. Initially apply some ice to the problem area, this will numb the pain and provide some temporary relief from your toothache.

For a longer lasting pain relief you could you use paracetamol or ibuprofen (like Nurofen), but at the toothache relief guide we suggest using a natural toothache home remedy such as clove oil, garlic, peppermint or an activate charcoal compress.

Clove oil has been used for toothache relief for thousands of years, it is anti-bacterial and provides strong pain relief. Soak a cotton wool ball with a couple of drops of pure clove oil mixed with some olive oil or grind a single clove and apply the powder to the area. You should feel some toothache relief very soon. You can re-apply the clove oil when the pain returns

Another great way to get toothache relief is to use peppermint. Peppermint is a great natural painkiller and can remove unwanted bacteria. Either make a fresh peppermint tea or apply dried leaves to the infected area

Do you have gum problems or gum disease?

A toothache is often a result of a cavity, broken tooth or broken filling but many toothaches are due to gum problems and gum disease. Millions of people suffer from gum disease and people often have difficultly overcoming their problems. With good dental hygiene and natural home remedies you can over come gum disease easily and naturally.

Some people need a helping hand and there are products to help treat gum disease, look for a natural product with a strong reputation such as The Ultimate Natural Gum Soloution product from SSLI health group.

Its been around for a number of years, is completely natural and will quickly and effectively relieve toothache, gum disease, canker sores and other teeth and gum problems.

Remember even though the natural remedies listed above will provide toothache relief they will not cure your toothache. Make an appointment with your dentist as soon as you can!

Please let us know if you have any other natural toothache remedies or ways to provide toothache relief.

    I have used clove oil and it works very well temporarily and also warm salt water does seem to help some but unfortunately are temporary.

    Clove powder tends to have longer lasting effects than the oil and peppermint leaves placed around the tooth work well too.

    I’ve heard of clove oil as a pain reliever but I am a little surprised at the fact that peppermint leaves can do the same. Which is more effective, the clove oil or the peppermint leaves?

    You have to be careful because it could be one of the signs of drug addiction if you start using too many “remedies” for a “toothache”

    Glad that natural products are always available.

    I’ve heard about tea tree oil as a natural way to relieve toothache. As far as I know, tea tree essential oil is a potent antibacterial that could relieve tooth and gum pain. I just don’t know if it is really effective because I haven’t tried it either. But there were claims that it is effective so I guess you can add tea tree oil.

    If you don’t have any of that stuff available I find Excedrin helps. Even though it is used for headaches it helps relieve the pain for a few hours.
