Natural Remedies To Cure A Toothache

toothacheMost toothaches occur when the root of a tooth is irritated. This may be because of tooth decay, gum disease or infection.  Tooth pain can also occur after a tooth extraction.  So what can you do to ease the pain?  Here are some ideas on natural remedies to cure a toothache.

One way to cure a toothache that is caused by gum disease or infection is a remedy made with the following natural products. First, put several drops of wild oregano oil under the tongue.  After a few minutes, rinse your mouth with colloidal silver.

Another thing to try is to rinse your mouth with warm salt water and massage the gums with oregano oil.

Ginger is another natural remedy.  Take a piece of fresh ginger and place it in your mouth over the infected tooth.  The pain should diminish after a few minutes.

Clove essential oil kills bacteria and relieves pain from a toothache. Try soaking a cotton ball in the oil and apply it around the infected tooth.

A teaspoon of black seed oil mixed with ½ teaspoon of vinegar also helps reduce inflammation and relieve pain. Use this mixture to rinse the mouth.

Lastly, using a cold pack on the outside of the mouth temporarily relieves pain from a toothache.  If a toothache is keeping you awake at night, this may be just enough to numb the area so you can get some sleep.

If you have a toothache for more than a few days, or if it gets worse each day, you should see your dentist as soon as possible.

Strengthen Tooth Enamel Naturally

tooth enamelDid you know that your tooth enamel is 96% mineral content and is the strongest substance in the human body? But tooth enamel can be easily destroyed by poor diet, poor hygiene, lack of nutrients and from acid. As has been mentioned many times in this blog, acidic foods and drinks are the worst for tooth enamel.  Some foods that have a lot of acid and are known to promote enamel loss are soda, candy, processed foods, coffee, alcohol and tobacco, artificial sweeteners, breads and cereals and even some commercial toothpastes.

The good news is, there are ways to actually strengthen tooth enamel naturally.  These steps are known to promote enamel growth and are an important part of your diet and lifestyle.

  • Keep teeth clean using tooth soaps or homemade toothpaste.
  • Encourage saliva production and keep the mouth moist. Oil pulling is a good method for this.
  • Ensure you have adequate levels of Vitamin D in your diet. Salmon and other fatty fish and egg yolks are good sources.  You can also use supplements.
  • Ensure that you have adequate levels of Vitamin K2 in your diet. High vitamin butter oil, egg yolks, and hard cheeses are good sources.
  • Homemade bone broth – True bone broths are full of calcium and minerals that are absorbed into the body for bone growth and encourage re-mineralization of enamel.
  • Sea salt – True sea salt contains many trace minerals that are vital to bone and enamel growth.
  • Fermented foods – These contain high levels of probiotics. Sauerkraut, kombucha, pickled vegetables.
  • Strawberries – These are high in vitamin C and antioxidants but also have a natural exfoliating effect.

It’s not an overnight process.  It takes time and consistency. But it is well worth it and can benefit your health in many ways.
