Effective Home Remedies To Stop Toothache Pain While Waiting For Help
One of the most common reasons for seeing the dentist is toothache pain. This type of pain can be very intense and can literally make you unable to function because it hurts so much.
Tooth pain can manifest as a constant throbbing, or can come on quite suddenly as just an intense continuous pain. It can be brought on by biting down on hard food particles, or drinking certain types of beverages. Perhaps the most common reason for toothache is tooth decay and cavities that have not been treated.
In addition to tooth decay, dental pain can be caused by:
- an abscessed tooth
- a fractured tooth
- a damaged or missing filling
- repetitive mouth motions (such as grinding your teeth)
- a gum infection
Toothache and dental pain can be accompanied by swelling in the area around the tooth, fever, headache, and in some cases you will taste an unpleasant drainage from the affected area.
The home remedies for toothache below will help ease the pain and discomfort of toothache, but it’s important to see a dentist as soon as you can. This is especially true if you have a toothache that persists for more than one or two days, or if you experience fever or earache. Dental infections can spread to other parts of the body so take care with this.
