Effective Toothache Relief Using Natural Ingredients at Home

Toothaches are painful and inconvenient experience that we unfortunately have to deal with from time to time. Pain-killing pills and liquids are readily available at supermarkets and pharmacists to resolve such pains but many people prefer to avoid unnecessary medication or painkillers if they can. There are some natural ingredients that work just like painkillers and can help reduce the pain. These natural ingredients are sometimes suggested by oral health experts in London to patients who want to avoid conventional medicines. Here are some natural tooth pain relief methods.
 

  1. Rinsing with warm saltwater: Certain pain in the mouth is caused by oral inflammations. Add a tablespoon of kitchen salt to a glass of warm water and rinse your mouth with this solution for 4 to 5 times daily. This will not only ease the pain but also reduce the inflammation. In fact this is the patent treatment for the majority of gum diseases. 
     
  2. Using the salt and pepper paste: Add a quarter teaspoon-full of normal table salt to the same amount of pepper. Mix both the ingredients well before pouring a few droplets of water to make a thick paste. Spread the paste on the affected portion of the mouth. This mixture of two natural ingredients has anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and analgesic or painkilling properties. You’ll get fast relief from severe toothache by applying this solution. It is one of the most effective tooth pain remedies that you can apply at home.
     
  3. Anti-toothache property of freshly grown guava leaves: Light-green, young guava leaves are an excellent agent to resolve severe toothaches. Deeply boil 4 to 6 such tender leaves in a cup of water. Allow the product to cool down and rinse your mouth thoroughly with it. This is a tried and tested homely remedy to cure the problem. 
     
  4. Applying clove oil: Take a tiny cotton ball and soak it well in clove oil. Place the ball at the affected region of the mouth and relax. If you don’t find clove oil in the kitchen, just grind a piece or two of whole cloves and place the pieces at the source of the pain. It will work the same way. 

    You can even chew a few pieces of raw onion to resolve the problem. Raw onion is an excellent analgesic for the mouth. Try out all these homely remedies before you call an emergency dentist for toothache
