Welcome to the forum.
Obviously severe toothache
caused by decay should be treated by your dentist
, but there are a number of treatments for pain and inflammation that will provide some relief during attacks. Cloves have an analgesic
oil contained in them and they can either he bitten whole, next to the offending tooth, or their oil can be applied neat to the painful area.
Mint also has antiseptic and analgesic properties and can be chewed or sucked at the site of the pain. Gum disease
can be treated by chewing tarragon, by rubbing oil of thyme into the gums. Vitamin C is essential to gum health, so ensure you are getting enough.
Rinse your mouth daily with hypericum and calendula
, mixed with cooled, boiled water, to prevent infection, A hot compress of camomile over the cheek, will ease the pain and draw the infection to the surface, if an abscess is present.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
