Causes of painful abscessed tooth are infection between the gums, infection between the tooth’s root, chipped tooth, or gingivitis. Bacteria enter through an abscessed tooth and multiply to spread infection in the bone. This cannot be ignored not only due to the unbearable pain, but also because it can actually kill people. The following list contains 11 items used for home remedy.
Amoxicillin is the most common antibiotic recommended by doctors. Alternatively, Ibuprofen rids the swelling and eases the pain while Paracetamol does the job of a pain reliever better.
- Peppermint Oil
Dip your fingertips on some oil and gently massage the affected area. It, for real, works like magic because of the instant relief.
Garlic kills bacteria naturally. Juice by crushing and squeezing raw garlic clove, and apply on the affected area.
- Clove Oil
Clove Oil not only treats both an abscessed tooth and gum diseases. Gently brush a clove oil, and be extra careful when applying it on the area. Excess pressure would only give you more pain. Apply parts of clove oil onto your gums as well.
Here we have another guaranteed quick pain reliever. Pour lukewarm water into a glass; sprinkle a small amount of salt and gargle. Unfortunately, you’ll have to endure the pain for your first few gargles. The relief comes after the pain but if you succeed like a true warrior were to, the reward is superbly great: pain reduced to 90 percent.
Applying goldenseal powder on the tooth gets rid of the problem.
- Oregano Oil
Use this oil the same way you did with the clove oil. Oregano is much better than clove oil because oregano has antibacterial, antioxidant, antiviral, and antifungal properties.
Apply as a powder on the tooth, take internally as a tincture, or drink as a tea.
- Oil Pulling
Slush a tablespoon of coconut oil in your mouth for 30 minutes. Do not swallow! Spit out and rinse mouth.
- Tea Bag
Get a herbal tea bag and apply it on the affected area.
- Apple Cider Vinegar
Instructions for application are the same as number nine’s.
