Something for Toothaches
If you’re suffering from an excruciating toothache, you’ll find that a little bit can go a long
Here are some simple ways to relieve the pain of a toothache.
If you’re seeking something for toothaches, then you may not need to look any further than your freezer. Apply
an ice cube directly to your aching tooth or better yet, place an ice pack onto the tenderest area of your jaw.
Don’t keep the ice there for more than 20 minutes at a time however. Ice not only eases the pain, essentially
numbing your gums and teeth, but also prevents swelling.
As well, if you want a little something for toothaches that will not require ordinary pain killers like Tylenol
and Advil, you can find natural relief in the form of a few whole clovers. If you have clove oil in your
medicine cabinet, dabbing that over your gums is ideal. Otherwise, grind up two tablespoons of whole clover until
you make a powder. Then add a tablespoon of olive oil to the grounded clovers. This will make a paste that you can
directly apply to your teeth and gums. You will get instant relief with clovers, but it is not long-lasting. Still,
it’s a great, natural way to seek immediate respite from the pain while more conventional, slow acting pain
medications are at work on your system.
If you desire something for toothaches that doesn’t require any sort of medication at all, natural or
artificial, then you may want to massage your earlobe or hand! This is a strange technique, but it’s very helpful.
Your earlobe and the area between your forefinger and thumb are both pressure points and when you rub them, the
pain of a toothache will eventually go away. After just 10 minutes of massage, you will feel relief.
A visit to the dentist is the best way to alleviate a toothache, as the faster you make an appointment, the
faster you will recover and the less likely it will be that you will need a tooth pulled. But these are some easy
home remedies to keep you comfortable in the meantime!
