Toothache Home Remedies







The white outer part is the enamel and the inner part is the pulp.


Toothache home remedies need to be available in the wee hours of the night because as "Murphy" will have it, that is when an impending abscess will start throbbing.

So for emergency toothache relief we will start off immediately by saying,  always keep a bottle of Clove Oil in your kitchen, (cloves are flower buds from rain forest trees native to Indonesia).

Ask many people and they will tell you that cloves are one of the best toothache remedies around, but do they know why.....probably not, so we will tell you why....

Cloves have natural local anaesthetic properties which will deaden the area and  is also a natural anti-inflammatory which will help with pain, both of which are excellent for toothache.

Soak a cotton ball in the clove oil and hold onto the aching tooth, alternatively you can take a clove and wedge it in-between the teeth if possible, remember always to put it on the tooth and not on the gums.




Before we move onto the rest of our Toothache Remedies lets just look at some of the technical stuff, in simple terms.


WHAT CAUSES TOOTHACHE?


  • Your inheritance from Mom or Dad.

  • Bad Oral Hygiene.

  • Crack or breaking a tooth.

My Mom and Dad lost their teeth at a very young age and they were paranoid about our oral hygiene.

Even having access to a free military medical, they sent us to private dentists, but my sister and  I were still plagued with abscesses as  youngsters.

Our one brother got off "scott free" (he was the one that was a chronic asthmatic as a child) and the other lost his teeth at a fairly young age.

Tooth decay is not detected in the early stages, but what actually happens is that it begins as a chip in that pretty white outside enamel part, leaving a nice little open space for food to collect and bacteria to start having a party in the soft pulp part of the tooth.

And then Dr Dentist here we come UGH!!


TOOTHACHE HOME REMEDIES

TOOTHACHE AND COCUNUT



When you have toothache put your finger into the bottle of solid coconut oil and rub around the culprit tooth.

For general teeth hygiene, swish the coconut oil around in your mouth on a daily basis.




Toothache and Cayenne Pepper



Mix Cayenne Pepper and water into a paste and then put on a cotton wool ball and apply directly onto the painful tooth (not the gum)




Toothache Home Remedies using Barley



Mix 2 litres of water with a cup of barley, bring to the boil and simmer for about an hour, drain, cool and drink one cup daily.

It also helps for high cholesterol, is rich in B-vitamins, potassium, magnesium, zinc and calcium.




Ever notice that white "stuff" that oozes from a fig when you cut it?  Well that is called ficin and is an analgesic which can help deaden the pain of toothache.

In the olden days it was even used for killing the pain during extractions.




Toothache and Nutmeg



Cloves have always been the star spice for toothache home remedies, but nutmeg also has antibacterial properties that can help protect the gums and nutmeg oil also contains eugenol which brings relief from toothache.




Herbs for Toothache




THYME is a natural antiseptic and that reduces the level of bacteria in the mouth.


SAGE is an anti-inflammatory and when made as an infusion should be used several times daily as a mouth rinse.

PARSLEY can be used as a breath freshener especially if you suffer from bad breath.

  • Aspirin does not work locally, so if you want to use it to help the pain, swallow it with water

A TOOTHACHE MEANS YOU WILL LOSE THE TOOTH:

  • Not anymore, Dentist can do so many things before losing a tooth.
