Toothache Remedy

There are several Essential Oils that can be part of an effective toothache remedy but they should only be used to limit pain and infection until you are able to visit your dentist.

A toothache is the first sign that bacteria has eaten away enough enamel to create a cavity or that an infection is forming in the tooth or nearby gums. 

This situation needs to be properly addressed by a dentist before the infection can become more severe.

In order to treat infection and control the pain, one or more of the oils listed below can be used as a temporary toothache remedy or as part of your overall treatment plan under the approval of a qualified dentist.

A few drops of Tea Tree oil can be applied using a cotton ball or gauze placed between your cheek and the effected tooth/gum. For added pain relief, add some Clove or Peppermint Oil to the gauze before inserting.

After seeing the dentist, and with his blessing, you can fight infection by consuming a 50:50 blend of Tea Tree and carrier oil in a gelatin capsule 3 times a day with your meals.

The following are some of the more popular oils people use in a toothache remedy.

Single Oils For Toothache Remedy

Clove Oil

Besides having natural antibacterial, anti-fungal, antioxidant and disinfectant properties, Clove Oil also has the ability to numb pain.

These qualities make it very useful, not only as a toothache remedy but also for treating other ailments such as canker sores and gum disease.

Clove Oil can be applied undiluted on the gums or directly in the cavity of an infected tooth.

You can also mix a couple drops with a tablespoon of olive oil or fractionated coconut, soak a cotton ball in it and then gently swab the affected area. Reapply as needed.

Peppermint Oil

Peppermint Oil is a toothache remedy that can provide relief from pain, destroy bacteria and freshen your breath at the same time.

Use it in a mouthwash (10 drops to 1 cup of water) or apply to the gum area in a 1:1 ratio with a carrier oil such as fractionated coconut.

You can also use a cotton swab to hold the oil against the painful area for a few minutes until the swelling goes down and the pain recedes.

Roman Chamomile Essential Oil

Roman Chamomile Essential Oil contains chamazulene which has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.

Add a couple drops of Chamomile Oil to a cup of hot water and allow the oil to float on the surface. Dip a clean cloth into the water to soak up the oil. Wring out excess water and apply as a hot compress on the outside of your cheek closest to the area of concern. Repeat the process when the cloth has cooled down.

Chamomile Oil is very gentle and can even be used on children and infants.

Tea Tree Oil

Tea Tree Oil can be a very powerful toothache remedy due to its antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal and antiviral properties.

Apply 1-2 drops directly onto painful gums 2 or 3 time a day.

Add 4 drops to a glass of warm water and swish it between your teeth at night before going to bed.

Spritz some Tea Tree and water on the affected area whenever needed using an amber glass spray bottle.

Let the blend sit for at least a day to ensure they mix well.

Store this mixture in a dark airtight bottle. I like to use an empty essential oil bottle from one of the oils in the above list.

Apply a drop to the aching tooth and gum after you have brushed your teeth in the morning and at night.
