Natural Remedies for Toothache – Home Remedies to Soothe a Toothache or Sore Gums

A toothache is often said to be the worst of all pains and almost always requires dental treatment.  Several home remedies can be used to relieve the pain for a short period of time but please keep in mind that you generally cannot avoid going to the dentist.

Until you can see your dentist you can try to ease the pain of a toothache with the following home remedies:

Gargle salt water. Mix one teaspoon of salt in a glass of warm water and gargle.
Apply an ice pack to your face.
Hot water bottle. Some people respond better to warmth. Place a hot water bottle on your cheek.
Garlic. Put a clove of garlic directly to the affected tooth.
Onion. Instead of garlic you can also try with a small piece of onion. Like garlic, onion has antibacterial properties.
Clove oil. Soak a cotton ball in diluted clove oil an apply it directly to the affected tooth or chew dried cloves. The herb’s active compound – eugenol is used in dentistry as local antiseptic and anesthetic.
Oregano oil. Soak a cotton ball in diluted oregano oil and apply it directly to the affected tooth.

There is also a prepared Natural Remedy for Toothache that has proven to be very effective.

Safety note: Please keep in mind that essential oils must not be used undiluted especially in the mouth. Women who are pregnant or breast-feeding, and people who are taking medications are advised not to use essential oils before consulting with their health care provider.
