Toothache… one of the worst pains in one’s life. What shall we do, if we wake up in the middle of the night and our tooth hurts as hell? There are some really efficient home remedies to treat the toothache. A toothache refers to pain that occurs in the area of the teeth, jaws and gums. Toothaches may be caused by a variety of problems such as dental cavities, exposed tooth rot, a cracked tooth, gum diseases, and so on. Pain from a toothache can vary from mild to severe and from sharp and sporadic pain to dull and persistent. It does pay to be prepared with toothache first aid because toothaches can strike without warning. Toothache pain can very often be excruciating and this may be further aggravated by exposure to cold or hot foods. Toothache remedies are highly sought after because they can offer significant toothache pain relief and are particularly useful for those who cannot turn to pharmaceutical products, as would be the case of some suffering a toothache during pregnancy. A toothache remedy may be unlikely to cure the problem but the relief it offers can help greatly, particularly in the absence of any immediate treatment for toothaches.
Toothache home remedies are commonly sought after information because tooth aches are a very common problem and can occur without warning. Teeth are an amazing balance of form and function, aesthetic beauty and engineering. Good teeth are an important part of one’s health and appearance. Toothache remedies at home can be particularly useful for pregnant women because while pregnant, most pharmaceutical and over the counter pain medications are off limits. The appearance of wisdom teeth is quite commonly a cause for toothaches and tooth pain in adults and toothache medications and over the counter toothache remedies may offer some relief. Unfortunately most toothache home remedies for wisdom teeth that are available over the counter will only offer temporary relief. In most situations in fact you would need to visit a dentist and in some cases tooth extraction may be necessary as many individuals suffer great pain on account of the appearance of more teeth than there is space for. Gumache remedies or sore gum remedies and toothache remedies for kids or children can be quite useful for some quick relief as it isn’t always possible to rush to a dentist immediately. Keep in mind that home remedies for toothaches in children are not an alternative to dental care. Whether you are using home remedies for a tooth abscess, home remedies for swollen gums, home remedies for cavities, or home remedies for a wisdom tooth, none of them will offer a permanent cure. Home remedies for toothache swelling or gum infections simply treat the symptoms, to reduce discomfort and pain. Most of us hate having to make dentistry appointments because of the high costs of dental care and the discomfort of most dental treatments. This is unfortunately unavoidable and delaying treatment with ineffective remedies or simply neglecting it can only cause the problem to increase drastically making the necessary dental treatments even more expensive and invasive. Neglecting dental care poses a lot more serious problems as at t times dental plaque can also enter the bloodstream causing heart blockages, increasing your risk of a heart attack.
Once, I really needed some home remedy for a toothache. I was up at 3 am in tears from pain. I had a mild toothache yesterday and before I went to be I took 2 ibuprofen which usually helps. When I was woken at 3am from pain, nothing that usually works was working. I had read remedies before for my brother(thankfully his are being fixed this week) and remembered seeing something about a tea bag on the tooth. I was hesitant. I gag easily and was afraid it would taste horribly and the only tea bags I have in the house are big ones. After taking 3 more ibuprofen and reading through the other remedies to see if there’s one I had supplies for that I havent tried with little to no relief I went in search of my tea bags. I cant believe that it actually worked. I have to say I also did the pressure point between the left forefinger and thumb and I have spearmint numbing spray(was a gag gift, marketed for bedroom fun but came in handy here)and both helped some but the tea bag is what allowed me to get back to sleepy rather than weepy. I fell asleep maybe 15 minutes after putting it in my mouth. The taste wasnt bad either. Made a nice little saliva brew in my mouth but I kept a bowl close to spit in every few minutes. Its been hours and there is no pain so far. I have taken 2 more ibuprofen just to stay ahead of it and I have a fresh tea bag in my pocket. I dont care how ridiculous it looks, it will be in my mouth if the pain returns. I will also be purchasing the red cross toothache kit today when I get a chance. Thank you so much to the people who suggested these things. Also, previous experience- be careful with the meds. I accidentally overdosed last winter. In the midst of the pain, I wasnt keeping track of how much I took and was just taking to get rid of the pain enough to get a few minutes of sleep here and there. Went on for about a week and on the 5th and 6th days I had finished an entire bottle and my liver tried to shut down. I spent 3 days in the ICU hooked to a poo load of machines. It really wasn’t fun and they treat you like you’re some junkie. The worst part- they have to detox you for 24hrs so you don’t get any pain meds during that and they cant treat you for the tooth until youve detoxed. Worst 24hrs of my life and Ive recovered from a c-section with no meds at all afterward. I was told by the doctor there that up to 800mg ibuprofen and 1 tylenol will do the same as a strong pain pill (vicodin is what they compared it to). That is the combo I usually use when it gets bad. Works most of the time.
In the next post, I will collect some home remedy methods against the infamous toothache. What kind of home renedies do you know?
