Toothache is the main reason we all go to the dentist. In the meantime you can get rid, or at least, reduce your toothache with the following tricks.
In order to reduce your toothache you should press hard on the area between your thumb and index finger. Massaging this area with ice cube can also help in reducing the pain.
Caution: Pregnant woman must not press this area.
Treatment with herbs
Cloves’ oil helps in making your gums numb. This way the pain will be stopped or at least reduced. All you need to do is gently massage your gums where the sick tooth is with clove oil.
Treatment at home
In order to reduce toothache, just follow the next instructions:
- Warm compresses
Warm compresses can give both good and bad outcome. If the toothache is caused by infection, the warm compresses will make you feel better. But because of too much heat, they can make you feel even worse and spread the pain.
- Rinsing with salt water
If rinsing does not help, getting rid of leftover food between your teeth with dental floss may help.
- Making the gums numb
Sucking on an ice cube for one minute can make your gums numb. In this case you will not be able to feel the toothache for a while.
