Are you experiencing excruciating painful pain in your mouth? If that is the case, chances are that you may have broken some tooth and this article will show you how to stop tooth nerve pain fast.
A root canal procedure may be necessary if you’ve recently broken some tooth. A root canal treatment can heal the damaged or infected pulp. A root canal treatment involves extracting the nerve and pulp causing the pain as well as cleaning the inside of the teeth. The treatment is not only pretty expensive but is also extremely painful, people refer to it as one of the most painful dental treatments.
The pulp needs to be removed as leaving it untreated only makes It worse, the bacteria starts to spread inside the pulp chamber and can cause further infections as well as swelling , bone problems and bone loss.
An over the counter drug that can be used to treat the infection is Acetaminophen. Acetaminophen however is only a temporary relief solution, the drug will temporary reduce the pain and inflammation. Taking Acetaminophen over an extended period of time or for long term is a bad idea as it the toxics will accumulate over time inside the liver which can lead to even more serious illnesses.
If you are like me who prefer to use natural cheap remedies, then continue reading. These are some remedies that I have collected over the years after intensive testing and research. Be warned however, that whilst it may work for me, it may not necessary work for you. I had a history of bad tooth and toothaches in general, I would constantly pull my hair from all the stress and pain the toothaches were causing but after countless remedies I have found what does and doesn’t work for me.
Garlic/Turmeric/Cloves: Mixing these 3 ingredients together into a fine paste and then applying it onto the tooth with your fingers is one of the best remedies I have used. Not only is it affordable but it is fast acting, I generally see results in weeks. Alternatively, you can use the ingredients individually, they all can be used separately to varying effects of success.
Baking Soda: Baking soda is a fairly popular remedy that is commonly used when treating tooth pain. Mix baking soda with warm water and using it as toothpaste or applying it directly can greatly relieve the tooth nerve pain. For maximum result, apply baking soda over 2-3 weeks.
SENSODYNE Toothpaste: Sensodyne toothpaste can also be used instead of normal toothpaste, they cost approximately 5 dollars a pack. Be sure to floss afterwards as well and brush daily. I personally have not tested this yet but I have heard of some mixed success from friends and family.
Whisky: This can also be used as a remedy that is affordable and fast acting. Simply take a glass of whisky or alcohol and use as mouthwash, swish the alcohol inside the mouth for a few minutes and the pain will be gone. This however is a temporary relief but is fantastic when the nerve pain is unbearable. The strongest and most effective mouthwash alcohol brands I found were scotch, whisky and vodka.
Ice Packs: Ice packs are the first thing I use when I feel pain, the ice numbs the teeth which reduces the pain as you won’t be able to feel it. Cover some cold ice cubes inside a cloth or towel and apply onto the side of your cheek with the infected teeth. Leave it there for as long as possible or until you feel numb. Although this method has varying success between people, I believe it is still worth trying because it is simple and fast.
If your pain is truly unbearable, I would recommend going to your local dentist for a checkup. A checkup can save you hundreds of dollars in the future if it worsens, but it is also very costly. Make sure that you are brushing your teeth every day and flossing every day, basic oral hygiene is essential is treating nerve pain. Avoid foods containing high salt or starch and get rid of bad habits such as smoking.
Hopefully these tips are of some use. On a final note be careful when using these, and use appropriately. More is not always good, sometimes using less can have better lasting effects.
