Question: I have severe tooth ache ....is there any home remedies to get rid of it
Answer: WARM WATER RINSE
Brushing and flossing are important to everyone's daily routine, but these simple self-care tips can prevent more severe dental problems for a pregnant woman. The National Maternal and Child Oral Health Resource Center recommends that a pregnant woman rinse with water after every meal when brushing isn't possible. The Mayo Clinic suggests that using warm water to rinse can help soothe a toothache and possibly remove any particles stuck between the teeth that could cause discomfort. Adding a teaspoon of salt may further assist in cleansing the area. Flossing regularly can prevent such pain if it is due to food lodged between the teeth.
A number of over-the-counter antiseptics can numb the gums and provide temporary pain relief. Benzocaine can be applied directly to an irritated tooth or to gums. Pregnant women should consult a doctor to find out whether use of this medicine is permissible. A natural antiseptic solution called oil of cloves can provide temporary pain relief as well.
Warm or cold compression can sometimes provide temporary relief for a toothache. A warm washcloth or water bottle can be applied to the side of the face where the pain persists. A cold cloth or pack of ice may also provide relief by numbing the area; this method can be used as often as necessary. The March of Dimes suggests applying ice to the gums when they become sore after brushing.
