Does this describe you? Are you hurting and need immediate relief. Should you try a natural remedy, over the counter medication or go to the dentist.
This article will give you four ways to provide temporary relief of this problem. The fifth remedy will be a permanent solution to your pain.
These are five remedies that may help you:
1. Try a clove of garlic. You can pick it up at your grocery store. It is inexpensive and can offer some people immediate relief.
Just peel the clove of garlic and place in the area of the mouth where you are experiencing pain. Bite down on it and hold for a few minutes to let it soak into the affected area.
Sometimes this can cause some burning but usually goes away after a couple of minutes. If the burning persists just rinse with warm salt water and this should give some immediate relief.
2. Clove oil which can be purchased at most stores that sell spices works well for relief of a toothache.
Clove oil will work well if the tooth has developed a cavity. Just get a cotton ball put a few drops of clove oil on it push it in the cavity and bite down and this may give you some pain relief.
3. Other remedies that you can use with a cotton ball are vanilla extract, or other extracts such as peppermint or lemon.
Like clove oil just put a few drops of the extract you choose on the cotton ball bite down and hopefully you will get relief.
4. To get some immediate relief you will probably need to take a trip to the drugstore.
Over the counter medications such as anbesol and oragel that you can rub on the area around the tooth can numb the pain temporally.
Also any of the standby pain medications such as naproxen, acetaminophen and ibuprofen can offer relief until you can get help.
5. As you might suspect the toothache pain remedies discussed in this article are temporary and you will probably have to schedule an appointment with the dentist if the condition worsens and you need a permanent solution.
Since you are exploring options for relief of your pain is it possible you are trying to avoid a dental visit. This could because of a fear of going to the dentist or maybe financial reasons.
If your toothache is temporally relieved but comes back a dental visit will be mandatory because you could have an underlying infection which could develop into serious problems.
In conclusion many of the remedies to help with toothache pain discussed in this article from clove of garlic, clove oil, various extracts and over the counter medications can be a big help when you experiencing the misery of a toothache.
But what if the pain doesn’t stop? The only way you’re going to fix it is to go ahead and schedule that appointment with the dentist. As mentioned earlier one of the reasons for delaying this visit is that you may know it is going to hit you hard in the pocket book.
