Simple Home Remedies for Toothache

If tooth decay or gum disease is the cause of a toothache, then a visit to the dentist is the only option. However, minor toothaches can often be successfully treated at home.

Some proven remedies include:

– Ice pack or cold compress to numb the pain

– Warm salt water rinse to remove debris between teeth

– Crushed garlic for its antibacterial properties

Other home remedies include peppermint tea, thyme, aloe vera and cloves but if the toothache lasts longer than a day or two then “seeing a dentist is recommended”. A list of home remedies and their uses can be read at https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/320315.php.
