There are several causes that trigger toothaches, so how to cure a toothache quickly?
Although visiting a dentist is a must, but it doesn’t hurt if we try to cure toothache naturally.
The intensity of pain can vary from mild to severe, which is usually called tooth sensitivity to heat/cold or direct contact with teeth, and throbbing teeth.
Here are some ways on how to cure toothache in minutes and using natural ingredients.
Add one teaspoon of salt to a glass of warm water and stir until the salt dissolves.
Apply liquid around the diseased tooth, then rinse well, especially to remove food scraps.
Clove or clove oil
If you have clove oil at home, just apply a few drops to the affected tooth, but be careful not to swallow it.
If you don’t have clove oil, place 1-2 cloves on the affected area. Gently press the clove with your teeth to get oil from the clove.
Crush a clove of garlic and apply directly to the affected tooth. Garlic has strong analgesic and antiseptic properties that can directly relieve toothache.
Hold the head
Holding your head during a toothache will reduce the pressure around the affected tooth. It will also reduce throbbing pain.
Compress with cold water
Put some ice cubes on the gauze and then use it as a compress on your cheek in the toothache area.
Ice will cool the painful area, making the pain more bearable. Never put ice directly on a sore tooth because this can only make matters worse.
Used teabag is a popular traditional medicine to fight toothache. Simply place the used teabag in the toothache area while it is still warm.
When your toothache is unbearable, you can use aspirin or painkillers. Important to remember; do not put aspirin directly on the surrounding teeth or gums. Even though many people do it, it is not right because aspirin can damage the gums and cause a burning sensation later in life.
If your teeth still do not show improvement over the steps that have been done above, then you should immediately contact the nearest dentist. Maybe your toothache has entered the stage that requires medical treatment.
