Toothache Be Gone!

Posted on

With some pains, you can try to put them out of your head and go about your business. Then, there are other types of pain that stop you in your tracks. They become the only thing that you can think of. They can make it hard to think, work, sleep, and do any of the other things you normally do on a daily basis. This article will walk you through some of the ways you can get a break from that awful pain until you are able to get in to see the dentist.

Apply Apple Cider Vinegar to the affected tooth: Apple Cider Vinegar is one of those "cure-all"s that seems to be able to take care of just about any problem. Therefore, it should come as little surprise to anyone to hear that it can also help to relieve tooth pain. It has both anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, and this means it can help to reduce inflammation, which will help take away pain and will help to keep the area clean. In order to use Apple Cider Vinegar for pain relief from an infected tooth, you will want to take a cotton ball and soap it in the vinegar. Take the cotton ball and place it directly on the affected tooth. Leave it in place until the pain is gone and even a bit longer to ensure it continues working.

Use a piece of garlic clove to get relief from the pain: Garlic can also be a great help when it comes to taking away the pain of a tooth ache. You want to take a fresh clove of garlic and cut it into fourths. Take a fourth of it and rub it along your gum, right along the affected tooth, and then leave it in place for a bit. Your breath may not be too pleasant after you have the garlic in your mouth for a while, but the good news is it can be very effective with regards to getting rid of the pain you are experiencing.  

Gently bite down on a small sized piece of ice: As long as the tooth pain you are feeling isn't caused by an exposed nerve, ice can be very helpful. You want to take a small to medium piece of ice and gently bite down on it with the affected tooth and the tooth adjacent to it.

All of these methods will help you feel much better. For more help, contact a dental clinic, such as Little Peoples Dentistry, as soon as you can.
