Holes in the teeth, or caries, is a pretty serious disease. If not treated, the consequences can be unpleasant - you can lose your tooth. It is important to remember that caries does not go away.

It is important not to exceed the doses specified in the instructions. As an anesthetic for manipulations with the dentist, you can use Lidocaine or Ultracaine.

Treatment with folk remedies

In the event that none of the above did not help, you can not determine the cause of the pain and are unable to tolerate further - ask for help to folk remedies.


Salvia has good analgesic and antiseptic properties, preparing a decoction based on it as follows:

  • a tablespoon of sage filled with boiling water and boil for ten minutes;
  • warm (not hot!) broth rinse the sick tooth, trying to stay longer near him.


Propolis has the same property to remove severe pain, but rather large, since many of its substances are used to treat the oral cavity:

  • put a small piece of the substance on a sick tooth;
  • keep until complete pain relief.


This remedy is based on the action of garlic and onions:

  • Prepare from equal proportions of onion and garlic gruel, adding salt;
  • carefully mix, lay on a sick tooth and press with a cotton swab;
  • keep until complete pain relief.


If the house has vodka, cognac, or something high in alcohol, try a very effective way:

  • hold a small amount of vodka or cognac on a sick tooth;
  • alcohol has an anesthetic effect and will quickly "freeze" the diseased tooth.

Important!Do not use this method constantly - relieving pain does not relieve you of the need to urgently visit a dentist.


If a toothache has caught a woman during pregnancy and at home, it is highly discouraged to take any medication pills so that it does not affect the further development and health of the child. The aforementioned decoction of sage will help, or, in the absence of this plant in the pharmacy, the usual chamomile will replace it no worse:

  • boil a tablespoon of chamomile for a few minutes;
  • rinse the aching tooth until you feel the pain go away.

Important!If a toothache has appeared in your child, do not give him anesthetic pills - herbal decoctions will affect the children's body much more effectively and without harm.

If you can buy wheat sprouts, you can prepare a fairly strong remedy: juice from wheat sprouts rinse the tooth until the pain disappears completely.


Sheets of valerian or horse sorrel perfectly quench the pain in 15-20 minutes, but not everyone knows about these properties:

  • rinse and clean the sheet;
  • place behind the cheek near the aching tooth, pressing to the gum.


Also, the uniquely useful oregano, if properly prepared, will completely eliminate the need for taking medications to make the tooth go faster:

  • the infusion is necessarily prepared in a ratio of ten to one - ten tablespoons of water are taken per spoon of oregano;
  • pour oregano with steep boiling water and let it brew;
  • Rinse the tooth in the same way as in the other cases.

Carnation oil

If there is clove oil in the house, the pain is soaked:

  • drip a few drops on a cotton swab and attach to a sick tooth;
  • if the pain is too strong and intolerable, drip directly onto the tooth, pressing a piece of cotton on top.

There is one more, rather strange, but, according to numerous reviews, still an effective method. It will work if the toothache has caught you in the nature - put the root of the plantain in your ear, from the side where the unhealthy tooth is.

Other methods

The following methods are more likely to be in the category of alternative medicine, but they should be remembered in case you do not have chamomile or ordinary salt on hand:

  • rub your wrist with garlic from the opposite side of the aching tooth;
  • rub the ice cube between the thumb and forefinger for a few minutes, also on the opposite hand;
  • massage the earlobe and the auricle within three to five minutes;

If none of the above and did not help, severe pain continues for a long time without interruption, and the tooth hurts when pressing - urgently need to visit the nearest dental clinic, so as not to lose a tooth at all. It is much better to endure a couple of hours in the doctor's chair, rather than then inserting an expensive artificial tooth, especially if you are in a fairly young age.

In this case, traditional medicine will help alleviate suffering before the visit of the clinic, but you can not cure the tooth yourself. Still, teeth are necessary for a person to eat and maintain life, so do not risk their health.
