What can I do to relieve toothache at home?

There are numerous remedies adults can use to temporarily relieve toothache at home. It’s advisable to see a dentist to fix the root cause of the pain.

Key takeaways:

– Painkillers such as aspirin or ibuprofen can relieve pain quickly

– If you prefer a non-pharmaceutical remedy an ice pack or cold compress can reduce any swelling of the gums and ease pain

– Other household items such as garlic, cloves, aloe vera and peppermint tea can also provide relief

“A toothache is a pain in and around the teeth and jaws.”
