Toothache: 8 Home Remedies For Toothache

Millions of people suffer from toothache every day, from mild soreness to that unbearable throb. Common causes of dental pain are cavities, an infection, cracked teeth, gum disease, or an abscess.

The pain of a toothache can be debilitating because it attacks you both physically and mentally. 9 out of 10 people who visit the dentist are experiencing some form of toothache. But many people try other methods to relieve pain before going to a doctor. If you have a toothache, here are 8 home remedies for toothache for you to try. However, if the tooth pain continues to worsen after trying these home remedies, go to a dentist to ask for medical help as soon as possible.

1. Toothache Home Remedy: Salt Water

A simple glass of warm salt water is a first-line remedy for tooth pain. Salt water can help to remove food particles and debris stuck in between your teeth, relieve gum inflammation, and heal oral wounds. A natural remedy, salt water also rids your mouth of bacteria and helps to attack any infection, a major cause of tooth pain.

To use this approach, mix half a spoon of common salt in a glass of hot water and use it to rinse your mouth thoroughly. Swill the solution in your mouth for 20~30 seconds. Spit it out and repeat as needed.
