Here are some suggestions for Home Remedies until your dental appointment

Causes

Toothache otherwise known as "odontalgia" is caused by many different reasons. Some causes of a toothache may include infection of the dental pulp, cavities, gum disease, trauma, fracture of the tooth or grinding of the teeth. A toothache may also be a sign of other types of ailments in the body, such as heart disease. Whatever the reason may be that triggered the toothache, the main goal is to find the source of the pain and eliminate it as quickly as possible.

Symptoms

Some people who experience a toothache may have different symptoms than others. The symptoms of a toothache can range from mild pain to excruciating pain. Some of the main symptoms of a toothache include throbbing pain in the affected area, swollen gum surrounding the affected tooth, sensitivity to touch, sensitivity to hot or cold, pain in the jaw area and fever. The pain may sometimes start mildly, but will gradually become worse if not treated.

Remedies

Using home remedies to treat a toothache can bring relief until the cause of it can be determined and can be treated by a dentist. There are many effective treatments that can be used to soothe a aching tooth. The garlic has natural antibiotic properties and can be used to kill bacteria, which is one of the leading cause of toothache. Another effective home remedy for toothache is clove. Clove contains pain relief and anesthetic properties. Western studies have shown the use of clove to treat toothache, as being effective. Vanilla is also used as a pain relief for toothache. A few drops of vanilla on a cotton swab, applied to the affected area, will relieve toothache.

Prevention/Solution

Practicing good dental hygiene each day can help to promote healthy gum and teeth. Daily brushing and flossing will help to prevent plaque from building up. Plaque builds up on the teeth if flossing and brushing is not done regularly. If plaque is not removed, it will start to build up around the teeth and becomes hardened. It then starts to produce acids, which will eventually lead to de-mineralization of the surface of the teeth. This will lead to other dental problems, such as gum disease and cavities. In addition to brushing and flossing the teeth, excess sugar should be avoided as much as possible. Visit the dentist at least every six months for a thorough dental check-up.

Considerations

Home remedies for toothache should not be substituted for a dentist visit. These home remedies should be used for temporary relief until the dentist can determine the cause of the toothache. Toothache can be the cause of other underlying problems other than dental issues, which can be easily overlooked. Pain in the jaw area can sometimes be the cause of inflammation of the sinus or a sinus infection. A symptom of angina, which is caused by insufficient supply of blood to the heart, may also be mistaken for a toothache.
