When you have a toothache, pain relief is the one thing on your mind! But which tooth ache remedy is best? Like so many things in life, IT DEPENDS. There is no "cure-all", sure-fire way to get rid of a toothache, apart from taking the tooth out! While getting the tooth pulled is sometimes the only option, most of the time it's not necessary. So what are the other options?
The BEST tooth ache remedy depends 100% on figuring out the CAUSE of your toothache. Once you have an idea of WHY your tooth hurts, then the correct tooth ache remedy becomes obvious.
But you also want fast toothache pain relief! You don't want to waste time going through a laundry-list of possible problems! So I've tried to keep it short and sweet in this guide to toothache pain relief.
Let's start with the smallest problems first, and work down to the more serious ones;
This leaves a big hole in the tooth, which will normally
be quite sensitive to anything getting in there, like hot or cold
drinks, cold air, or food getting packed in.
Sometimes it can be
caused by a vertical crack running from top to bottom of the tooth,
right along the root. Another possibility is tooth nerve pain caused
by trauma to the tooth, either acute, which means a
sharp knock or blow
to the tooth; or chronic, which means several years of grinding your
teeth or clenching your teeth while sleeping.
Toothache home remedies. As I'm a dentist, you'd expect me to advise you to get along to a dentist if you are having any problems with your teeth, especially if you're on the hunt for toothache pain relief. And you'd be right!
BUT I also understand that it's not always possible to get to a dentist quickly, if you're having pain in the middle of the night, on a weekend, on a business trip, overseas in a foreign country - the list goes on.
In these situations it can take a day or more to find a good dentist, and in the meantime you need some effective toothache pain relief. Take a look at my guide to toothache home remedies.
