11 Home Remedies for Toothache

Dental infections, gum disease, and decay can cause mild to severe toothaches. For proper diagnosis and treatment, contact a dentist. Home remedies may assist briefly. Here are 11 toothache home remedies:

1. Saltwater Rinse

A warm saltwater rinse can help ease pain temporarily by reducing swelling and killing bacteria in the mouth.

2. Clove Oil

Eugenol, which is found in clove oil, is a natural painkiller and anaesthetic. Put a little bit of it right on the tooth or gums that are hurt.

3. Peppermint Tea Bags

If your tooth or gums hurt, put a cold peppermint tea bag on them to numb and soothe them.

4. Garlic

Garlic can help relieve pain and fight mouth infections because it kills germs. Apply a crushed garlic clove to the area that hurts.

5. Ice Pack

Putting a cold pack or ice pack on the cheek away from the sore spot can help ease the pain and reduce the swelling.

6. Over-the-Counter Pain Relievers

Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen, can help ease the pain of a toothache and lower swelling.

7. Vanilla Extract

Soak a cotton ball in vanilla extract, then put it on the sore tooth to make it feel a little better.

8. Hydrogen Peroxide Rinse

Equal parts hydrogen peroxide and water can be used as a mouthwash to get rid of germs in the mouth and ease pain.

9. Tea Tree Oil

Tea tree oil can kill germs and ease pain, so mix a few drops with a carrier oil like olive oil and rub it on the area that hurts.

10. Turmeric Paste

Mix turmeric powder with water to make a paste, then put it on the tooth or gum that hurts. Turmeric can help reduce inflammation and ease pain.

11. Warm Saltwater and Baking Soda Rinse

Warm saltwater and a pinch of baking soda can be mixed together to make an alkaline solution that can help neutralise mouth acids and ease pain.
