Toothaches can keep us wide awake at night. Toothaches are caused by infections, broken fillings, loose teeth or receding gums. It’s important to see your dentist immediately when a tooth starts hurting. In the short-term, you can ease the pain with a few home remedies.
– Numb the pain by taking painkiller like ibuprofen and place an ice pack on the affected area or drinking peppermint.
– Kill any bacteria present by chewing garlic or rinsing your mouth with mouthwash or warm, salty water.
– Add one drop of thyme to a glass water and use the mixture to rinse your mouth.
See the dentist for further diagnosis and treatment.
