7 Ways to Relieve Toothache Pain


Rinsing your mouth with salt water is always a good idea, because it can help to remove bacteria and prevent infection. But it can also reduce inflammation. Just a few hours of salt water just sway in your mouth and the pain should disappear.

Vanilla Extract

If you poke some vanilla on your pain with a cotton ball, it can numb your pain and soothe you, allowing your jaw to relax, which can also relieve the pain.

Tea Bags

You can soak a black tea bag in ice water for a few minutes and then apply it directly to the pain. This should relieve the pain and help reduce the swelling. You can also make peppermint tea, let it cool down and then spin it in your mouth.

Guava Leaves

Chewing on leaves can release the juices from the plant known to have antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Another option is to make a guava tea by cooking the leaves and pressing them out. This can also be combined with the salt option mentioned above to create a highly effective mouthwash.


It is known that ginger and cayenne pepper are effective in relieving pain. Capsaicin, which occurs in cayenne pepper, is especially good at stopping pain signals reaching your brain.

You can combine the two ingredients in equal parts with water to make a paste. Then dab a cotton bud in the mixture and apply it directly to your pain. You should notice a slight burning sensation, but try to keep it going as long as possible. Also try to avoid getting a paste on your tongue.


You should never cross out the numbing abilities of ice. Putting some pain on the pain for some of the ten to fifteen minutes in a thin cloth. Or you can easily place an ice pack on the outside of your cheek.


Many traditional remedies in one way or another result in your mind being diverted from focusing on the pain. This can be done in a number of ways, from holding an ice cube in your hand to applying vinegar soaked paper on your cheek. In my own experience I have noticed that only looking at a good movie can help.

If none of these tips ease the pain, try to go to a dentist as soon as possible.
