And in cases where you don’t have an access to the dentist right away, here are a few home remedies you can try out to ease the toothache and give you some relief. But remember, this is just to ease the pain, not to cure it for good. It is recommended to still go to the dentist as soon as you can.
At the bottom of this article I have a link to more home remedies for toothaches. Just remember that whichever remedy you choose from the list, it can give you some relief from pain, this is only temporary. You will still need to visit your dentist. Toothaches don’t appear for no reason. There are many reasons why you have a toothache and it can be from tooth decay or perhaps some other dental problems like tooth or gum infection. Only your dentist can give the right solution like filling your teeth to prevent further decay or performing a root canal or in cases where tooth is not savable, a tooth extraction.
Also keep in mind that prevention is the best medicine. Follow a good habit of oral hygiene like brushing your teeth regularly (2-3 times a day) and flossing once a day. Also use fluoride rinses. Ask your dentist to apply fluoride varnish to your teeth twice a year to help strengthen your teeth. Visit your dentist regularly too whether you have a toothache or not. By doing so, you don’t have to suffer more toothaches from serious dental problems. Your dentist can catch dental problems like cavities at its early stages so that it doesn’t turn into a bigger problem. With prevention you don’t need to ever suffer from any type of toothaches.
