Toothaches can cause intolerable pain. Of course, if you have a severe or constant toothache or other mouth problem, you should visit your dentist in case you are dealing with a serious dental problem that needs to be treated.
Moreover, you may experience some minor toothaches and pains that can be treated at home, or at least alleviated before seeing your dentist.
Here are some home remedies you need to try next time you are dealing with a toothache:
Clove oil is an old and popular remedy. What makes it very special is the chemical eugenol in the oil, which includes anesthetic and antibacterial properties.
If you want to use this oil for toothache, soak a cotton ball in a mixture made from 2-3 drops of clove oil and ¼ teaspoon of olive oil. Place the cotton ball inside your mouth near the aching tooth and bite down to keep it in place. It is important not to sleep with the cotton in your mouth.
You can find clove oil in pharmacies and health food stores.
