Treatment of Toothache with Essential Oils

Toothaches: 

Toothaches happen for a number of reasons, including trauma, infection, and inflammation. Pain may be dull and throbbing, or sharp and unbearable. Sensitivity to heat and cold as well as pain when chewing is common and swollen or bleeding gums around the tooth may also occur. Call your doctor or dentist if remedies do not relieve the pain within 24 hours or if a tooth has been broken or knocked out. If you have dental pain that is radiating to your jawbone, seek treatment right away, as a serious infection could be present.

Clove essential oil numbs even sharp tooth pain and can serve as a suitable first-aid until your dental appointment in the event you have a serious problem. Using measure apply 1 drop of clove essential oil to the affected tooth and surrounding your fingertips, tissue, breathing through your mouth for 1 to 2 minutes to allow it to penetrate. Repeat this treatment every 2 to 3 hours as needed.
