Toothaches can be very annoying but if you follow the tips I give you in this article, you will see how easy it is to cure toothache fast.
First of all, you need to learn a little about toothache and why it occurs. There are actually two types of toothaches. The first type of toothache is one which is caused when the tooth gets in touch with extreme temperatures such as heat or cold. You may have noticed that when you eat cold, hard ice creams you feel a certain ache in your tooth. This pain is caused because our tooth enamel is sensitive to extreme temperatures. Obviously the best way to avoid such toothaches is to avoid eating foods which are either too hot or too cold.
There is another kind of toothache which is caused by an infection in the tooth or gums. This type of toothache can be very painful and involves swelling of gums. It is not however easy to get rid of this type of toothache, usually because it is hard to know where the pain is coming from. You may think that your front tooth is what is causing you pain, but the real culprit maybe a back tooth.
There are a couple of natural ways to cure toothache. For example, try to breath through your nose and expel air from your mouth. Doing so will help you avoid congestion in the nostrils caused by cold.
Sometimes toothache can be caused by nausea, fear, anxiety, etc. Such cases of toothache can be best cured by treating the original disease itself. Note that sometimes, along with toothache, you may also feel pain in your neck.
A simple way to cure toothache caused by nausea is to use a simple acupressure technique that I have mastered over the years and used successfully on many occasions. Hold the tip of your index finger firmly to the tip of your thumb to make a circle like ‘O’. Then look at a distant object, such as your office, or garden. Once you do this your nausea will be gone and so will your toothache.
Apart from the above causes, there can be many other causes behind toothaches. For example, your posture can cause toothache. How you sit and stand has an effect on your teeth. So, to avoid toothache, it is best you never lie down even if you feel tempted to do so. Always either sit down or stand. Lying down increases blood pressure and it may aggravate your toothache more than anything else.
While these remedies may help you in curing toothache, I would suggest that you take conventional painkillers such as acetaminophen (Tylenol) or ibuprofen (Advil), provided that these medicines won’t have any side effects on you. Best thing is to check with your doctor and he will prescribe you suitable painkillers.
