There are several home remedies effective in relieving pain, such as saltwater rinse, hydrogen peroxide rinse, clove oil, garlic, or cold compress.

Toothache is often caused by swelling of the gums and the area surrounding the infected tooth, causing pressure to form against the tooth. This can result in very intense pain.

Toothache can be very painful. However, if the pain is severe, causes headache, jaw ache and fever, or lasts longer than 2 days, its time to visit a dentist.

Toothache can be caused by cavities, decay or damaged fillings. A dentist will be able to accurately determine the cause.

Avoid acidic foods like citrus fruits and aerated beverages. It is also recommended not to place an aspirin directly onto the affected tooth.

OTC Pain relievers like acetaminophen (Tylenol) are the best pain medications for toothache. There are several toothache remedies one can employ. Some include:
• Saltwater rinse- Saltwater is a natural disinfectant. Mix ½ a teaspoon of salt with a glass of warm water and rinse for a minute.
• Hydrogen peroxide rinse- Hydrogen peroxide kills bacteria while reducing pain and inflammation. Mix 3% hydrogen peroxide solution with an equal part of water and rinse like mouth wash.
• Cold compress- Ice packs will help reduce the swelling and pain by restricting blood flow to the affected area.
• Peppermint teabags- This helps numb the tooth and gums. It can be used either warm or after freezing.
• Garlic- Garlic not only kills harmful bacteria and prevents plaque, but also helps with pain relief.
• Vanilla extract- It contains alcohol which helps manage the pain.
• Clove- Clove contains eugenol which is a natural disinfectant. Clove oil can be dabbed directly onto the affected area or mixed with water as a mouthwash.

Prevention is always better than cure, hence it is recommended to maintain good oral hygiene. Brush the teeth twice a day, use mouth wash, floss regularly and never miss a dentist’s appointment. HerbsDaily offers a wide range of supplements effective in toothache relief.
