Natural Relief for Severe Toothache

Do you have a toothache? Is the pain unbearable? If you want instant relief for a painful toothache that will tie you over to your dentist appointment,  here are ways to find natural relief for severe toothache pain.

Firstly, you will need to place a cold ice pack onto the tender area. Not only will this quickly sooth you, numbing the pain, but it will prevent swelling that usually results from a bad toothache (often caused by a cavity). This is the standard natural relief for severe toothache pain but there are many things you can do beyond this.

Lots of herbal remedies provide instant pain relief and are usually easy to find in your kitchen.  In addition to more conventional pain killers like Tylenol and Advil, natural pain killers are actually more effective at providing fast-acting relief and they are better for your healing process. The most popular natural relief for severe toothache pain is clove oil, which you rub directly onto your gums. Plenty of other natural remedies exist – but anything with clove ingredients is ideal.

A gentle massage can also be natural relief for severe toothache pain. If you massage your earlobe or the area between your forefinger and thumb on your hand, you may feel the pain fading within 10 minutes. You will want to massage the earlobe and/or hand on the same side of your toothache pain. This is probably the most curious natural relief for severe toothache pain but it does work. Pressure points are all over your body and if you know where to locate them, you can cope with all kinds of pain, including dreadful toothaches.

The best thing you can do when you start to feel a toothache is to make an appointment with your dentist. If you let the pain escalate, it will only make it more likely that you will need a tooth to be pulled and the healing process will be delayed. Fortunately though, if you do eventually have to deal with severe pain, there are lots of home remedies.
