Have a toothache? Hate going to the dentist? Here are the top ten remedies for solving toothaches that don’t involve wrapping string around your tooth and slamming a door. Take a look and be amazed!
Literally something as simple as applying pressure can be seriously effective in reducing toothache pain, but don’t apply it directly to the tooth. Instead, try applying pressure to certain parts of your hand. It might sound like mumbo jumbo, but it’s a tested method that involves pressing the soft spot of your hand where the back of the thumb meets the back of the index finger using your opposite thumb.
When you apply pressure to this point of the hand, your body releases endorphins which are hormones that make you feel good. This can work for many different kinds of pain as well, not just toothache.
2. Fill in the cracks
This one only works if you have cracked a tooth and you’re waiting to go to the dentist to have it repaired. Basically, when you crack a tooth, you’ll feel pain because the nerves are exposed. The best way to deal with this is covering up those nerves, and surprisingly enough, a good way to do it is using gum.
Gum can be used to hold parts of teeth together and fill in the cracks and while you’re on the way to the dentist or waiting for your surgery, be sure not to eat anything using that tooth. It isn’t an ideal solution but it’s better than being in constant pain while you wait.
