Toothache refers to pain and tenderness of the teeth, gums, or jaw.
Pain in the teeth.
The most common cause of toothache is decay (also known as a “cavity”) due to dental plaque (made up of the bacteria, acids, and sugars in your mouth) which corrodes the protective enamel on your teeth.
- Horseradish & garlic may be of assistance to reduce the congestion of sinusitis and thereby relieve pressure on the teeth
- Calcium chewed will help keep the teeth healthy
- Oil of cloves or myrrh applied to the affected tooth and gum area will help reduce the pain
Sucking on ice may help to numb your gums and relieve pain.
Strict dental hygiene prevents tooth decay – remember to brush and floss your teeth twice daily, and to use an antibacterial mouthwash to protect your teeth from decay.
Consult your healthcare professional if your tooth throbs or your gums are painful, red, and swollen.
