Best Home Remedy for Toothache Pain

Toothache pain can be described as pain around or within a tooth, which shows that there is some amount of reddening, swelling, irritation or infection of a gum abscess or tooth. Toothache pain is very common, and it can happen to anyone at anytime.

The first thing that you should do when you start having a toothache is to take medication such as Acetaminophen, Aspirin, Tylenol, Codeine, Aleve or Ibuprofen; however, if you still have toothache pain after you have tried one of the aforementioned medications, you can try the home remedies listed below:

  • The pressure point remedy is one of the best home remedies that is used for toothache pain; all you will need to do is rub an ice cube between the V-shaped area of your hand where the forefinger and thumb bones meet. Do this for approximately five to seven minutes.
  • You can choose to chew a single garlic clove every morning, or you can place a garlic clove along with some rock salt on the affected tooth.
  • One of the best home remedies for toothache pain that provides instant relief is placing approximately two to three drops of vanilla extract on the affected tooth.
  • Try applying some ‘Vicks Vapor Rub’ to the side of your face where you are experiencing the pain. Put a paper towel on top of that side of your face, and lie in bed. The ‘Vicks Vapor Rub’ will produce heat, which is absorbed into the skin and will provide you relief from the toothache pain.
  • Another home remedy that will provide you with instant relief is pressing a hot tea bag against the affected tooth.
  • There is some amount of anesthetic in ‘Halls Cough Drops;’ as such, you can place two in your mouth and allow them to dissolve, which will provide you with some amount of relief.
  • Toothache pain can be cured by using Asafetida that has been grounded in some lemon juice. Once you have mixed the solution, heat it and then soak a piece of cotton swab in it and put it on the cavity of the affected tooth. This will provide quick relief for the pain.
  • Oil of cloves or clove oil contains mild anesthetic properties, and once applied to the cavity of the affected tooth it will provide you with instant relief from the pain that you are experiencing. Oil of oregano can also be used; however, it is not as effective as the clove oil.
