What toothache remedies work best?

Whilst we would always recommend contacting a dentist should you suffer from any discomfort with your dental hygiene, there are a few remedies that can temporarily alleviate any toothache:-

– warm compress on tooth area for 20 minutes

– use an old toothbrush to brush gently with baking soda paste (baking powder, salt, and a few drops of water)

– rinsing the mouth with hydrogen peroxide can help reduce pain or swelling associated with toothache, tooth abscess, tooth infection

– applying toothache oil (toothache relief essential oils) may soothe tooth pain and reduce tooth discomfort associated tooth abscess, cavity, or other dental problems.

– apple cider vinegar applied directly to the affected area with a cotton ball can help disinfect skin that has been punctured by teeth during tooth extraction

– tea tree oil can be used as a natural toothache remedy. Dilute with water and apply to toothache with a cotton ball

Facial swelling

Facial swelling can be a side effect of tooth pain.

According to Chetan from Mola Dental “Some people do not experience any tooth sensitivity when they have a toothache, while others find that even warm or cold foods can cause them discomfort.”

When experiencing tooth damage, it is important to visit your dentist as soon as possible to prevent further complications from arising.

Should antibiotics be prescribed?

It is important to visit your dentist if the toothache persists for more than a day or two, especially if the pain is accompanied by fever, swelling of the face or jaw, or drainage from around the tooth. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms it is likely that you have an infection and antibiotics will be prescribed.

Sharp pain when biting

In some cases, toothaches may be caused by other issues such as grinding your teeth at night (bruxism), gum disease, or tooth decay. In these cases, toothaches can be treated using over the counter medications or by a dentist.

Tooth sensitivity

If you are experiencing tooth sensitivity, it is likely that the toothache is caused by a cavity. A dentist will need to treat the tooth to stop the pain.

Pain/bleeding after tooth extraction

It is normal to experience some pain and bleeding after tooth extraction. Rinsing with warm salt water can help to reduce these symptoms.

If the pain or bleeding persists, contact your dentist.

It is important to take care of the wound caused by tooth extraction to prevent infection.

Mouth ulcers

Mouth ulcers are often caused by tooth decay. If you have a toothache accompanied by mouth ulcers, visit your dentist for treatment options.

Wisdom tooth pain

Wisdom tooth pain is often caused by the tooth becoming impacted. A dentist will need to remove the tooth to stop the pain.

If toothache persists…

There are a lot of different ways to manage toothache, and what works for one person may not work for another. If the toothache persists, it is important to visit your dentist to find out the cause and receive treatment.
