The following helpful pain relief techniques use natural remedies and work well for many people who experience toothaches and tooth pain. Most of the items needed are found in your pantry. Salt & Hot Water Salt and hot water are one of the most common pain relief techniques people use to ease toothaches. Salt draws out fluids from your gums that cause irritation, then reducing the aches and pains that you feel. Mix one tablespoon of salt in a glass of lukewarm to hot water. Rinse or gargle with the mixture, making sure to swish it around in your mouth a few times before spitting out. This is a safe solution that can be used multiple times if necessary. Clove Oil Clove oil is sold at your local drug store and online. Although the taste isn't the best, it works for most any toothache, dissolving the pain instantly. Simply apply a few drops of the oil to the affected tooth and get instant pain relief that you want and need. Ice Compress Try placing an ice compress over the tooth that is giving you problems. Ice will numb the area, which eliminates the pain. Hydrogen Peroxide Hydrogen peroxide may also help ease the aches and pains that you feel. Dilute in water or use alone, splash around in the mouth, and spit. It takes hydrogen peroxide only a few minutes to stop the pain. Use thetoothache remediesabove and then give Crossroads Family Dentistry a call to schedule emergency dental service. We're the ready to serve your dental needs....
