Useful Remedies For Tooth Pain

tTooth pain can be described as the worse pain ever. In fact, many people claim they rather have a headache over a toothache. What can be done about a toothache that just won’t let up?

Coconut Oil

Coconut oil has been becoming increasingly popular for many things lately. It actually can help with tooth pain. If you get a teaspoon or tablespoon (however much you can handle), and swish it around in your mouth for 10-20 minutes, this will help ease the pain. Coconut oil helps because what you are doing is actually pulling out the bacteria from your gums and between your teeth. The coconut oil assists in soothing inflammation as well.

Here are some more options for tooth pain relief:

Garlic Cloves

Just like coconut oil, garlic cloves will also draw out the inflammation. The garlic can be mixed with table salt and applied to the tooth that is causing you discomfort. Cloves are known as an anti-inflammatory, and it will fight infections fast.


You can place an aspirin onto the affected tooth, and let it sit there for a while. This will draw out the pain that the tooth is causing you.

Salt Water

Next time you experience an excruciating toothache, try getting a heapful of salt water and swishing in your mouth for a bit, spit out, and then repeat. The pain should start to subside after a couple times of doing this.

Tea Tree Oil

Tea Tree Oil is known for being great at many things, and it’s exceptionally great for toothaches. All you need to do is drop a small amount on the affected tooth and the area on the gums, and it should do the trick. You can even add a small amount of lukewarm water when swishing this around, and it works wonders.

Ginger Root
