Don’t be stuck with tooth pain that you can’t get rid of! In Woburn, we believe that dental care should be a top priority in your life, which is why we have been giving you easy at-home remedies to ease any tooth pain that you’re feeling. Although tooth pain should never be hidden from your dentist, it’s important to point out that there are some ways you can relieve the pain until you can make a dental appointment with our team. We’ve already mentioned how swishing salt water, covering your tooth in clove oil and saturating your tooth with ginger-cayenne paste can help tremendously to reduce pain. So, here are more easy ways to alleviate tooth pain in a crunch.
Peppermint tea is another easy at-home tooth pain reliever. Because peppermint has a nice and natural flavor that has a subtle numbing power, it can be used to ease pain. The easiest way to use peppermint tea to your advantage would be to place one teaspoon of dried peppermint leaves into one cup of boiling water. You’ll let this steep for about twenty minutes. Once the tea is cool enough for you to drink, you’ll want to swish it around in your mouth. You can either swallow the tea, or spit it out. If you’re not against drinking your tea black, take advantage of the tannins, as this may help reduce swelling as well.
So, if you love peppermint tea, be sure to give this remedy a try. But if your dental health seems to be deteriorating and your tooth pain isn’t subsiding, it’s time for you to make an appointment with our dentist.
