Home remedies are pretty useful when you have an emergency.

We know that a dental emergency can strike at any time, it doesn’t matter what time is it or the place we are at that moment.

Of course the better you can do is going to your dental office, but let’s imagine something.

Try to imagine that you are camping in nowhere and out of the blue a toothache strikes you very, very hard. What can you do?

Well, actually to achieve the home remedies you need some stuff that you probably don’t have in the place you are camping, though.

But you can always have something that can help you to release your pain.

Now, let’s try to imagine that you are not camping, but you are at home, and it is too late at night to see your dentist.

So, when a toothache strikes right in the middle of the night, the only thing you can do is try to emulate the homemade remedies that your grandma used to recommend all the time.

There is nothing better than the love of your mom or your grandma.

Grandmas know a lot of things to make you feel better, but if you are on your own, the best idea is to have some of their recipes in case you need them.

Especially those recipes that would help you to relieve pain.

Some people don’t believe in the power of some medical herbs and homemade remedies.

But they need to remember that there was a time when people didn’t have the choice setting an appointment with a dentist.

Because there was no a dental office to go with, and they needed to figure out how to have a quick fix without losing their teeth.

Reasons to Have Pain in a Tooth

There are a lot of reasons why a tooth might hurt. Don’t try to guess what the causes are.

It can get worse if you don’t see your dentist.

These home remedies can help you when it is an emergency, and a dentist can’t see you at that moment.

You can have pain in a tooth due to cavities, and you know that you can’t just leave a cavity without the proper treatment.

If you keep using remedies to relieve the pain without hitting a dental office, that cavity can require a root canal or even worse; you may lose your tooth.

Now, some patients have pain in a tooth because they are suffering from a gum disease.

Sometimes this sensibility goes away with a dental cleaning.

Some patients crack one of their teeth exposing the nerve and causing the severe pain. In this case, seeing a dentist would be essential as well.

You can just leave a crack in your tooth because that crack can reach the root of your tooth.

If the crack reaches the root, sometimes the solution is only the extraction of the tooth.

Another reason can be a damaged filling. Dental fillings can last many years, maybe eight or ten, it depends on the material that filling is made of.

But when you need to replace it, your tooth will let you know with a toothache. If you filling needs replacement you must set an appointment with your dentist as soon as you can.

Some remedies will work for a while, but definitely, you can’t skip going to your dentist in Tijuana to have the treatment you need.

Please keep in mind that these home remedies are just a temporary solution to relieve your pain. None of these remedies are permanent.

Let’s Try Some Cloven Oil

home remedies

Clove oil is perhaps the most famous of the home remedies. It has been used through history. Believe or not, a lot of people nowadays are still using cloves as a natural remedy to relieve a toothache.

The main reason for cloves to being such a remarkable remedy is because they serve as a natural anesthetic thanks to their main chemical compound: the eugenol.

The main ingredient of clove oil is eugenol, which helps to numb the aching area.

Plus, it can work to reduce the inflammation in your gums and mouth tissues. Clove oil is available in natural health remedies stores, supermarkets near to you or drugstores.

You can use a little cotton ball, and gently put a couple of cloven oil drops on the cotton balls.

Don’t soak the cotton ball into the cloven oil please, just take a couple of drops. Then put the cotton ball against the aching area for twenty minutes or so, until you start to feel you better.

If you don’t find the oil, and just have the whole cloves, you can use them as well.

The only thing you need to do is to grab an individual clove and place it in the toothache area and bite.

Don’t chew it because it has an awful taste, so just bite it and keep it there until you begin to feel that the pain is coming down.

Some people take drugs such as the ibuprofen to help cloves to relief the tooth pain.

But remember that before you take anything, you need to see a doctor who can prescribe you something.

Don’t take medication without a prescription, and remember that cloves can help to reduce swelling and pain, but cavities won’t get fixed with them.

So, see your dentist as soon as you can.

Peppermint Tea Bags to Release Pain

Peppermint Tea

I know some people just can’t believe in herbal medicines, but let’s be honest.

Thousands of years before our era, there were no dentists, and people found the way to a relief toothache in a natural way because they didn’t have medicines.

It is too easy for us nowadays because when we have a problem, we rapidly search on the internet for a temporary solution.

When it comes for a toothache, we can opt for peppermint tea bags to help us to release it. But, how does it work?

You need to put the peppermint tea bag in the aching area until you start to feel that the pain is going down.

However, take into account that if you have some huge dental problem, this method may not work.

Plus, it is a temporary remedy that means that the pain won’t take a lot of time to get back and give you more problems.

For better results drink the tea first and then use the cold peppermint tea bag in the affected area.

Leave the cold tea bag in your tooth for around twenty minutes or so. Don’t use sugar in your tea, because if you have some sort of cavity sugar can make pain worse.

Peppermint is a popular herbal solution to calm headaches, inflammation, and fever.

Plus thanks to its components can help with digestion, and prevent waves of nausea.

As you can see, peppermint can help you in a lot of ways. Just remember that you must look at your doctor, and also your dentist to be sure that everything is okay.

Give Salt a Chance


Salt can dry our skin, but its healing components can’t just be ignored.

It can be weird though using salt to release pain, but let’s remember that salt has been used through the history of the human beings.

Probably when you were just a little kid and lose your first tooth, your mom give you a glass of water with a tablespoon of salt.

The use of water salt is because the salt has healing properties and may help with the wound that the missing tooth leaves behind.

So, probably salt doesn’t have great skills to release the pain in your tooth in the same way other home remedies do.

However, salt water serves as an antibacterial component, and you can clean tooth bacteria from some cavities.

The only thing you need to do is take this glass of water with the salt and rise for a few seconds.

Repeating at least two or three times a day until you can be able to see your dentist.

Also, you can use water and salt to relief sore in your throat when you feel sick.

Properties of water salt can be pretty impressive, more for your mouth health.

So, don’t doubt using it for your toothache, especially if you have a wound.

Water salt can help you to disinfect the affected area, helping to reduce the chances of an infection.

I’m sure that you have salt in your kitchen, even better if it is sea salt. Use water salt as mouthwash to release the pain in your tooth.

Go See your Dentist

Everyone can have a dental emergency, and when it comes to a toothache, we need to relieve the pain in order to sleep well or go to work.

There are more home remedies such as putting ice on our faces to reduce pain until we have the opportunity to see our dentist.

Don’t forget that these remedies are just a temporary solution.
