Home Remedies For a Toothache

By: Dr. Josh Axe

Hey guys, Dr. Axe here. Today, I'm going talk to you about home remedies for toothaches. If you've ever had a toothache or you have a young child or a teething baby that has a toothache, you know that those can be painful. Those can be nagging and they can really just make you miserable. And so, I want to go over my top three natural remedies for curing toothaches fast. The first thing you need to use are essential oils.

And the best essential oil according to the medical literature is clove oil. Clove actually ranks as the highest antioxidant herb in the entire world today. So you can get a little bottle of essential oils here of clove oil.

You just take a... Just one single drop and you rub it right on the area. Now for teething babies, a lot of times what you'll do is you'll take clove oil. You'll mix it with an equal amount of coconut oil and then you'll use that, and rub it just right on the area. So again, you can see here, just take a bottle of essential oil, a drop or two coconut oil. You rub it right on the area.

There are several medical studies showing that cloves or clove oil is so effective at actually helping heal and helping relieve the pain associated with toothaches. If you don't have clove essential oil at home, you can actually go to the store and actually buy just clove powder. Mix that with coconut oil and rub that on the area as well. But I will tell you, the oil of clove is the most effective, even more effective than actually the clove powder that you'd cook with or bake with at home. But again, if you don't have it, don't have access, then doing some of the clove powder with coconut oil does work.

Home Remedies For a Toothache

The next thing you want to be doing is sea salt. In fact doing sea salt in the area, gargling and swishing around the area with sea salt. Sea salt actually has natural anti-bacterial activities. It can actually have an analgesic effect on the area. So again, swishing around some sea salt in the area is also effective home remedy for fighting and healing toothaches.

And last but not least, if you really want to soothe or numb the area, peppermint oil. Peppermint oil contains menthol which actually can help numb that area as well. So what I would recommend, ideally, if you want to help heal or cure a toothache, the first thing you would do is you would swish around in your mouth for two minutes, you'll swish around sea salt. The next thing you do right afterwards, is you would create a mixture of clove oil and peppermint oil and rub it directly on the area. If you do those things together, you're going to find it's really going to help you overcome that toothache very quickly. And let me say if it really gets out of hand, obviously, you do want to go and see your local dentist or schedule appointment to see a dentist. Some other things you may consider doing is really backing off your sugar intake.

You know, consuming sugar can feed yeast and bacteria that can be causing a toothache, as well, or inflammation the area. So really reducing and eliminating excess sugar intake can definitely help, another thing you may consider doing. But remember, hey, you want to kick a toothache fast.

Remember these ingredients, clove oil, peppermint oil, and sea salt are the most effective home remedies when overcoming toothaches.
