Are You Singing the Toothache Blues?

Posted on March 27th, 2021

Watertown dentists, Dr. Buchholtz & Dr. Garro at Family Dental Practice, discuss toothache home remedies you can use before coming in to see us.Are you or a loved one suffering from the toothache blues? Don’t wait around in pain for the problem to resolve itself. Although we do enjoy spending quality time with our patients at Family Dental Practice, we don’t want any Watertown residents to have to undergo unnecessary dental procedures. 

A toothache can indicate a much more serious problem that should be addressed immediately, but there are a few things you can do in the meantime for temporary relief from toothache pain

Home Remedies

  1. Painkillers – This one might be obvious, as painkillers are one of the fastest, most effective ways to temporarily relieve mild to moderate pain and inflammation.
  2. Salt Water – Salt has natural antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and analgesic properties. Add a spoonful of salt to a warm cup of water. Gargle the dissolved solution several times daily.
  3. Cold Compress – Just like any other injury, a cold compress can work wonders at reducing the swelling, inflammation, and pain of a toothache.
  4. Clove Oil – Cloves also contain natural antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and anesthetic properties that can help relieve pain. Apply clove oil directly to the affected tooth, or add a few drops to a half cup of water and use as a rinse. 

These are just a few home remedies for temporary relief from a toothache—but remember, a toothache is your mouth’s way of telling you that something is wrong and should not be ignored. 

If you or a loved one are suffering from the toothache blues, the first thing you should do is contact Family Dental Practice in Watertown today to schedule an appointment. Dr. Buchholtz & Dr. Garro will have you singing a new tune in no time.
