Toothache home remedies. Toothache is most often caused by inflammation, so anything that helps to reduce inflammation should help to reduce toothache. Antioxidants are one of the main fighters of inflammation, and so is adequate fluid intake.
In this article, home remedies for acute toothache are discussed, and towards the end, strategies for long-term solutions to eliminate toothache are proposed.
Consider natural antibiotics and natural antivirals as toothache home remedies. Anything with an anti-inflammatory or anaesthetising action may also be of tremendous help.
Care for your teeth. In the book: 'Successful Self-Dentistry' Nadine Artemis explains that the teeth are nourished from the inside, so what you eat has a fundamental impact on your dental health. She advices against the use of toothpaste, which has fluoride and other chemicals to harm your teeth and overall health. She recommends brushing your teeth with [aluminium-free] baking soda instead and using various essential oils eliminate bacteria and improve gum health, etc.
Keep in mind that bacteria living in the teeth and gums has also been linked to more serious conditions, such as heart disease, so good dental hygiene is important for overall health, and not just for tooth health.
To nourish your teeth from the inside we recommend a mineral-rich diet with plenty of fruit, vegetables and berries, as well as supplementary trace minerals. Some our our favourite products are as follows:
