What are some natural Home Cures For A Toothache? If you have ever had a toothache, then you know that you will do just about anything to relieve the pain. In this article, I would like to share some natural Home Cures For A Toothache I have discovered over the years. These natural remedies will help to alleviate some of the pain and discomfort associated with a toothache. I also would like to share with you a way to naturally heal some cavities you may have.
4 Natural Home Remedies For A Toothache
The following are to be used for temporary relief of a toothache. You will want to follow up with a Dentist or a healing regime I have provided below, or at some point, the pain will return. and you may not be able to heal the cavity if too much damage occurs.
- Pure Vanilla Extract – You will want to purchase pure vanilla extract and not imitation or natural flavor. I have used this myself, and it will help numb the pain at least for a while and possibly a few hours. Which if you have ever experienced a lousy toothache, any relief is welcomed.
There are two ways you can use vanilla extract.
- Soak a cotton ball or Q-tip in the vanilla extract and then put it in your mouth over the infected tooth.
- Put a capful of the vanilla extract in your mouth and hold it over the tooth.
Relief from the pain in my experience is pretty quick.
- Warm Salt Water Rinse – Just like when you have a sore throat, warm salt water can help to get rid of the infection, causing the toothache.
Mix about a teaspoon of salt (preferably sea salt) into a glass of warm water and swish it around the tooth area, causing the pain two or three times a day.
- Clove Oil – Because of the numbing effect clove oil has, you can use a Q-tip and apply it around the infected tooth to help numb the pain. However, if you are in severe pain and are not concerned with numbing your entire mouth, I would use a cotton ball. I try not to swallow too much of it because it could cause you to have an upset stomach.
You can also make a paste with clove powder if the oil is not available. Mix the clove powder with some olive oil into a paste and apply it on the infected tooth area.
- Hydrogen Peroxide – Put a small amount of hydrogen peroxide in your mouth and swish it around the infected tooth, but don’t swallow it. The hydrogen peroxide will help to eliminate the infection causing the pain.
For the best results, I would switch out between the four. Use the hydrogen peroxide and the warm salt water for the infection, and the vanilla extract and clove oil for the pain.
What Causes Cavities
Believe it or not, when people are getting a lot of cavities, it is a very good sign of malnutrition. Our bodies are not getting the vitamins and minerals we need to maintain good health for our teeth. The foods we are eating are not only deficient in vitamins and minerals, but they also contain chemicals that impair the utilization of nutrients in the body.
Why Fluoride Is Not Good For Your Teeth Or Health
Fluoride can prevent cavities from healing because it pulls the calcium and phosphorus into areas of the body that they would not usually travel, such as the pineal gland and the arteries. So these minerals are not being adequately utilized for strengthening the teeth and bones.
Fluoride directly attacks the thyroid and neutralizes iodine. So this is why fluoride is the main reason for the current epidemic of hypothyroidism, and for hormonal problems for women in the U.S. Fluoride is a major factor in osteoporosis because it causes brittle bones; especially over extended periods.

What Kind Of Toothpaste Should You Use
Avoid fluoride toothpaste and any toothpaste that contains sodium lauryl sulphate or sodium Laureth sulphate. A Toothpaste containing monocalcium phosphate is ideal because it can help to remineralize damaged teeth.
My recommendation would be to use a product called Health Wyze Dental Cleanser. I am not affiliated with this company in any way other than personally using this product myself.
I think you will be glad you gave this product a try, and you will thank me for it later! This product is in powder form, not a paste.
How To Heal Cavities Naturally
If you are suddenly starting to experience tooth decay, you should know that it is often a symptom of a phosphorus deficiency. Fructose causes a decrease in phosphorus, which is one of the reasons why sugar seems to cause cavities.
Cavities can begin healing when provided with the right diet. The two minerals that are most important for dental health are calcium and phosphorus. This healing process is known as remineralization because it is giving the teeth the minerals that are necessary to repair them. The human body also needs adequate amounts of vitamin D from sunlight or fish, and the body also needs magnesium from vegetables and nuts to utilize calcium properly.
Also, fat-soluble vitamins are invaluable. These vitamins include A, D, E, and K, which can be found in real butter, eggs, dairy products, and meats. A healthy diet that heals cavities is reminiscent of the Atkins Diet.
Foods High In Phosphorus And Calcium Include
- Meats (Preferably Grass-Fed)
- Brazil Nuts
- Real Butter (Not Margarine)
- Parmesan Cheese
- Leafy Greens
- Seeds (Pumpkin, Sunflower)
- Dried Fruit
Things To Try And Avoid While Healing A Cavity
- Processed foods with chemical additives
- Pharmaceuticals if possible
- Soy products
- Limit intake of coffee and tea
- Sugary foods as much as possible
- Reduce carbohydrates
In closing, I would like to say that when a cavity is healed, the area where it previously existed often turns black. This discoloration is purely cosmetic, and there are no health implications. The discoloration is likely to be permanent, however. I hope you found this article helpful. And if you did, please give it a like and a share.
