Toothache is one of the most horrible and unbearable pains that can make you feel almost completely debilitated – you can’t sleep, you can’t eat or drink, you can’t talk, and most of the times your face is totally swollen!
However, the good news is that before going to the dentist, you can considerably relieve the pain with many home remedies for toothaches. Listed below are some of the best ones!
A teaspoon of salt dissolved in a cup of boiling water makes a pain-killing mouthwash, which will clean away irritating debris and help reduce swelling. Swish it around for about 30 seconds before spitting it out.
Soothe with tea:
Peppermint tea has a nice flavor and some numbing power. Put 1 teaspoon dried peppermint leaves in 1 cup boiling water and steep for 20 minutes. After the tea cools, swish it around in your mouth, then spit it out or swallow
Chewing raw onion or applying a small piece directly on the tooth can kill germs in the mouth, and prevent, relieve and control toothaches. In fact, research has proved that raw onion has potent bactericidal properties, which makes it a powerful toothache remedy.
