As your first step , I recommend you pick up a bottle of "Tea Tree Oil". Tea Tree oil is a natural oil that is very effective in relieving toothache pain . It will also kill germs and bacteria in your mouth so your toothache wont worsen. To use Tea Tree oil simply rub 2 or 3 drops both on and around your tooth . Massage the oil into the gums surrounding your tooth . You should feel relief from pain into about 1 or 2 minutes . If pain persists , move on to the next step .
As your second step , try chewing a few small piece of onion . Onions are a natural anti - biotic and will aid in toothache pain . If you are unable to chew , you should juice a piece of onion by smashing it and then applying the onion juice on and around your tooth.
Another great way to get rid of a toothache is with clove oil . Clove oil has been used as a natural remedy for many different medical problems. To use it to eliminate toothache pain is simple. Apply a few small drops on your tooth. Rub the oil around the gums surrounding your tooth. Your pain should be reduced within a minute or so.
One more natural and effective way to reduce pain caused by a toothache is by holding half a cup of salt water in your mouth . Simply mix 3 teaspoons of normal table salt into 6 ounces of water and hold in your mouth for about 20 seconds.
If none of these natural remedies work out for you , try going down to your local drug store and pick up a tube of toothache numbing gel . A popular brand for this is named " Oregel" . This gel will effectively numb your tooth and area around your tooth until you are able to get to a dentist.
