Toothache may occur in the most unpleasant moment, usually while we sleep or when there is not a dentist anywhere nearby. This is why we will now present you homemade remedy which acts as a great anesthetic and antiseptic.
Clove is the solution to your tooth-related problems. It contains eugenol, has sweet-like taste and has numerous health benefits. Besides its anesthetic and antiseptic properties, clove has the ability to cleanse your whole oral cavity and get rid of bad breath.
Here are the 3 ways through which you can get rid of tooth ache, using clove:
- Clove in powdered form
First of all, rinse your oral cavity suing salt water. Take a pinch of powdered clove and place it onto the gum where your ill tooth is located. Wait for the clove to act for several minutes and the pain will be gone.
- Whole clove
Rinse your mouth with salt water. Put 3 cloves in your mouth and wait for them to soften. Chew the cloves carefully until their oils start acting. The pain should be gone once they affect the ill tooth.
- Clove oil
This method is the most effective of all.
In order to successfully remove toothache you will need a cotton swab, clove oil and a tablespoon of olive oil.
Rinse your mouth well using salt water. Mix several drops of clove oil with several drops of olive oil. Apply the mixture onto the affected area using the cotton swab. Make sure you press lightly several times in order for the mixture to act easily.
Do not hesitate to go to the dentist after the toothache is gone because it will be back after the clove’s properties wear off. Wash your teeth on a regular basis and avoid eating sweet and sour foods.
