Toothache can be very strong. Those who are afraid of the dentist delay going for an appointment, and suffer the pain or they fed on painkillers.
If you don’t dare going to the dentist, if necessary, try the best natural cure for toothache which is regularly used in India – the spice clove.
People have been using it to treat oral pain for centuries. Clove essential oil, when applied topically, works by effectively numbing that area. Topical numbing agents temporarily deaden the nerve endings causing you to lose sensation in the afflicted area. A 2006 study published in the Journal of Dentistry found that clove oil works the same as benzocaine for helping with toothaches and chronic tooth pain.
Its main chemical component, eugenol, makes it a very stimulating essential oil that can promote blood circulation and benefit cardiovascular health. Clove is a powerful antioxidant that can help destroy free radicals and strengthen your immune system.
Clove is one of the highest sources of manganese. It is vital for metabolism; it contributes enzymes, promotes bone strength.
Mix 2 drops of clove oil with around half a teaspoon of coconut oil and then soak a cotton ball in the mixture. Now place and hold it in your mouth against the sore tooth or gum. Once the pain has eased, spit out the cotton ball and discard. Do not use this method in bed at night as it’s obviously a choking hazard.
You can also use whole cloves, place a couple of them near the affected area for several minutes until they soften than chew them with the tooth that’s hurting.
