Natural remedies can help ease the pain of a toothache. But it is difficult to know what is causing a toothache, so make an appointment to see your dentist as soon as possible. In the meantime, try this to relieve the pain…
Acupressure often works like magic to temporarily abate the pain of a toothache. If the pain is on the right side of your mouth, squeeze the index finger of your right hand on each side of the fingernail. As you’re squeezing your finger, rotate it clockwise a few times, giving that index finger a rapid little massage. Do this until the throbbing in your mouth subsides a bit. If the tooth pain is on the left side of your mouth, do the squeezing trick to your left index finger.
And remember—get to a dentist because toothaches can signal a serious infection.
