Toothache Relief

Toothaches can be extremely painful and at times, stop you from making the trip to the dentist. Toothaches are commonly related to other dental problems such as infection or tooth decay. 

Home Remedies

  • Salt + Hot Water -  Swish some hot salt water around in your mouth. This will ease the irritation in the gums and soothe the pain.

 

  • Ice/ Cold Compress - You can put this on the inside or outside of your mouth to relieve pain.

 

  • Hydrogen Peroxide - Swish this around in your mouth and spit it out. It will clean the germs on your teeth helping you with the infection or a toothache.

 

  • Apple Cider Vinegar - It is recommended to use a cloth or cotton swab and gently dabbing the tooth in pain. Apple cider vinegar will not only kill the germs but hold anti-inflammatory properties that will slow an infection .

Emergencies

If the pain becomes increasingly worse, don't hesitate to call your dentist. Tooth aches are common signs of more serious dental issues and should not be taken lightly.
