Toothache Day

I have no idea why there would have be a day dedicated to a toothache. The truth is if you have ever had a toothache then you know that the pain is real and it is not fun. But if you have a toothache then perhaps you could use a few tips to relieve the tooth pain
Toothache Pain Relief

Cloves are one of the best remedies for toothaches. You can either chew on a piece of clove or you can also use clove oil to ease the pain. Put a few drops of the oil on the affected part and it will make the area numb and also reduce the pain.
Small pieces of onion placed on the affected area also helps. It gets rid of the irritating pain.
A swig of whiskey also helps in getting rid of the pain. The alcohol, upon contact with the gums around the affected area, acts like a kind of anesthesia which in turn reduces the pain.
Swishing salt and warm water in your mouth when your tooth aches, is also of great help. This not only soothes the pain, but it also helps in killing the germs that causes the pain.
Wheat grass juice also acts as a good toothache pain relief. It can be used as a mouth wash or it can also be chewed in order to get rid of the pain.
Black pepper is good for toothache as well as bad breath. A paste of black pepper and salt, applied on the cavity tooth, can do wonders.
A mixture of mustard oil and salt, is a good option. Massaging your tooth with this mixture will be good for the aching tooth.
Vanilla extracts too can be used to make the aching area numb, thus reducing the pain. Dried peppermint leaves are also good for a toothache. Place these leaves around the tooth for around 10 to 15 minutes (and do this for at least 10 to 15 times) and then throw it out. This acts as a good painkiller and stops toothache pain fast.
The next remedy, although good for reducing aching tooth, one has to be careful not to swallow it. It's iodine which helps in reducing the pain.
Ice pack is also a great remedy which you can try out at home. Hold an ice pack around the affected area and compress it. A good remedy.
Another remedy for tooth decay pain or any other cause of toothaches is cucumber. Hold slices of cucumber around the affected area and the pain will ease off on its own. You can also use refrigerated cucumber.
Mixture of turmeric powder and mustard oil applied on the aching tooth, is not only good for getting rid of the pain, but also the problems related to the tooth.
Another amazingly good pain relief is massaging the earlobe on the side of the toothache. Massaging it for 10 to 15 minutes, will slowly reduce the pain.
