Toothaches are a real pain — literally! However, many of us can’t drop everything to go see the dentist, or our local holistic dentist. And there’s also the pain of new teeth. Kids commonly have pain associated with teething.

Luckily there are plenty of natural solutions available that will help relieve the severe pain of a toothache while you wait to see your chosen medical care professional or while your children’s new teeth grow in.

What Causes Toothaches?

Believe it or not, a toothache doesn’t always mean tooth decay. It may be one of the leading causes of a toothache, but there are many other health problems that may cause the teeth to ache.

These include:

Although one may be tempted to turn to pain pills as an answer to the problem, many pain pills come with a list of side effects that many people would be wise to avoid. It is best to go the natural route when it comes to pain, and these remedies are perfect for tooth pain of any kind.

3 Natural Remedies for Toothaches!

#1 Clove Oil

Many people love clove oil for a toothache, and there are some scientific studies that back up its effectiveness. In a study, published in The Journal of Dentistry, clove essential oil was found to numb tooth pain just as well as benzocaine cream. And clove oil is less likely to cause allergic reactions.

All you need to do is rub a drop of clove oil on the painful area and let it go to work. With children, it is best to mix 1 drop of clove oil with 1 teaspoon of coconut oil and rub the mixture on the child’s gums.

#2 Garlic

Certain components found in garlic make it an excellent anti-inflammatory and disinfectant. This means it is perfect for treating tooth pain. It will numb the pain and work to remove any infection that might be associated with the pain.

The best way to treat tooth pain with garlic is to take a clove of garlic and chew it with the sore tooth or teeth. This might seem a bit uncomfortable for some, but the pain will disappear. You can then spit out the garlic or swallow it.

#3 Turmeric

Honestly, the best way to treat toothaches is to make sure your teeth are as healthy as possible. One way to do this is to switch up your toothpaste to a more natural alternative, turmeric toothpaste!

Turmeric is antibacterial, antimicrobial, and full of antioxidants that make teeth strong and healthy. You can easily make a potent turmeric toothpaste with 1 tablespoon coconut oil, 1 teaspoon turmeric, and 1-2 drops peppermint essential oil. Use this instead of conventional toothpaste and your teeth will be pain free and pearly white!

I oil pull with coconut oil and find my teeth are not only clean but healthy. If my gums feel a little sore, I use coconut oil and swoosh it around. It seems to help.

Using clove, oregano and myrrh for gum disease I didn’t kno I had. Oil pulling every morning. Water pic with salt water. Whoa baby! Wish I had done this regiment a year ago when I got my sonicare elect toothbrush! I probably wouldn’t need the scaling tomorrow!
