Are You Singing the Toothache Blues?

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 The Center for Cosmetic & Family Dentistry, we don’t want any Destin & Panama City Beach 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.
  1. 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.
  1. Cold Compress – Just like any other injury, a cold compress can work wonders at reducing the swelling, inflammation, and pain of a toothache.
  1. Clove Oil – Cloves also have 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 call The Center for Cosmetic & Family Dentistry in Destin & Panama City Beach today to schedule an appointment. Drs. Lichorwic, Skinner, Baya, and Dubois will have you singing a new tune in no time.
