Tooth ache can be really painful sometimes and you literally agonise in pain. If you are unable to visit the dentist at time, you may try some home remedies or some medications. If you are already suffering from some dental ailments , have some pain medications with you always as prescribed by your dentist. Here are some tips to ease you out.


h3 “>Remove any trapped food :

Use dental floss to carefully remove any food particles lodged between two teeth in the pained area of your mouth.After flossing, rinse your mouth thoroughly. Rapidly swish warm water around in your mouth to loosen any food particles. Spit the water out when done.

Avoid chewing on the painful area:

Avoid Chewing from the painful side. In addition to avoiding the hurt area of your mouth, cover any exposed holes responsible for causing the pain. If your tooth is cracked or otherwise damaged, you could temporarily cover it with softened chewing gum or dental wax until you can schedule an appointment with your dentist.


Take pain medication:

Use an over-the-counter pain reliever like aspirin, acetaminophen, ibuprofen, or naproxen sodium. Follow the instructions on the label to determine the correct dosage. You can try Tramodol tablet if not relived from above mentioned.


Use a topical pain medication:

Apply an over-the-counter topical ointment containing benzocaine directly to the tooth or gum experiencing pain. Follow the label directions to determine the proper amount and application.

Do not put aspirin or other painkillers directly on the pained gum tissue. Doing so will burn and cause more pain.Only use topical pain relievers approved for dental use. Other topical pain killers could be dangerous if ingested.


Apply a cold compress:

 Wrap an ice cube in a plastic bag or a thin cloth and apply it to the jawline surrounding the pained tooth for 10 to 15 minutes.

Cold temperatures reduce blood flow to area they are applied to. As blood flow drops, swelling and pain is reduced.Take breaks in 10 to 15 minute intervals. After each break, continue to apply the compress to the hurt area as needed.


Try other Alternatives:

  1. Numb the area using cloves.Cloves have a natural numbing effect and are also effective at killing bacteria. You can use whole cloves, ground cloves, or clove oil to get rid of your tooth pain.

    • If using ground cloves, use clean hands to apply a pinch of ground cloves in between the pained gum and the cheek. As the cloves combine with your saliva, the numbing quality will kick in.
    • For whole cloves, use clean hands to place two or three cloves in your mouth near the pained area. After your saliva softens them, gently chew the cloves to release more of the oils.
    • Mix a few drops of clove oil with 1/2 tsp (2.5 ml) olive oil. Soak a sterile cotton ball in this mixture, then hold it against the painful part of your tooth or gum.


  2. Rinse with salt water. Salt can strip the mouth of bacteria and draw moisture out from an inflamed gum surrounding a pained tooth, thereby soothing the area.

    • Combine 1 tsp (5 ml) of salt with 8 oz (250 ml) of warm water.
    • Rinse with this solution for 30 seconds before spitting it out. Repeat as needed.


  3. Try garlic or onion.Both vegetables are traditional folk remedies for tooth painandare thought to have antibacterial properties capable of killing germs in the mouth, as well.

    • Wedge a clove of garlic or small piece of onion in between the sore tooth or gum and the adjacent cheek. Hold it there until the pain subsides.


  4. Rinse with wheat grass juice. Wheat grass supposedly draws toxins out of the gums, halting bacterial growth as a result.

    • Purchase wheat grass juice from a health food store or and use it several times a day as a mouthwash. Focus on swishing the juice around the pained area of your mouth as you use it.


  5. Make a bayberry paste. Bayberry, when combined with vinegar to form a paste,is supposed to relieve tooth pain and strengthen the gums.

    • Grind up a 1-inch (2.5-cm) patch of bayberry bark with 1/4 tsp (1.25 ml) of vinegar. Use more bark or vinegar as needed to form a paste.
    • Apply this paste directly to the pained area of your mouth and let sit until the pain subsides. Then, rinse it away with warm water.
