Treating Toothaches at Home

When a toothache hits and you're in need of a quick fix, try these natural remedies to alleviate the pain. Even though there are many reasons for toothaches, it's best to see a dentist as soon as possible. An untreated problem can lead to more serious dental complications.

  1. Swish salt water. Add a teaspoon of salt into a cup of warm water, take a sip and swish around in your mouth for 30 seconds. The salt water cleans away irritating debris and helps reduce swelling. Repeat this treatment as needed.
  2. Drink some tea. Peppermint tea can help soothe the pain and reduce swelling. Swish it around in your mouth and spit it out or swallow. You can also place a warm, wet tea bag directly on the affected area.
  3. Use a cold compress. Place an ice cube in a plastic bag, wrapped in a cloth and apply it to the aching tooth for 10-15 minutes. This will numb the nerves and alleviate any discomfort.
  4. Apply clove oil. Rub a few drops on the affected tooth with a cotton ball several times a day to provide temporary pain relief. This natural anesthetic can be found in most markets and drugstores.
  5. Clean your mouth. Gently brush and floss your teeth to remove any food particles that may be causing the irritation. Follow with an alcohol-free mouthwash.
