If a tooth hurtsWhat to do in this case? After all, it happens, it happens at night. See if there is any pain reliever in your home medicine cabinet, such as analgin, antipyrine. Mefenamic acid has a good analgesic effect. Take one tablet at night, another in the afternoon, and try to go to your dentist's appointment immediately.

If you are away from the community and can get to the dentist in a day or even later, take any of the pain relievers from your first aid kit and take it one tablet three times a day. You can vigorously rinse your mouth with water at room temperature and clean the tooth cavity from food debris, put a crushed tablet of acetylsalicylic acid (aspirin) into it, covering it with a cotton ball on top.

There is another way to relieve, at least temporarily, a toothache. Moisten a small cotton ball with anesthetic dental drops or drops, which are useful to have in your home or first aid kit... If these drugs are not available, you can replace them with camphor alcohol, valerian tincture. While looking in the mirror, put a cotton ball into the cavity of the diseased tooth. Remove the cotton ball every 5-10 minutes and replace it with a new one until the pain subsides.

Some dentists recommend treating toothache with propolis (bee glue) because it has anti-inflammatory and pain relieving properties. To do this, put a piece of propolis into the cavity of the tooth cleared of food debris. And there is also a folk remedy. Prepare a mixture of salt, gruel of garlic and onion, for which you need to grate them or pass them through a special metal "crush". Take everything in equal amounts, for example, half or a quarter of a teaspoon, and mix thoroughly. Put a little of this mixture into the cavity of the tooth, and on top of it a cotton swab.

If a tooth hurtsSometimes at night, acute pain occurs in the hole after tooth extraction, spreading to the temple, ear, eye... Why can this happen? As a rule, due to an infection that has got into the hole and developed inflammation, as well as when there is no blood clot in the hole, as dentists say, with a dry hole. In this case, every 15-20 minutes, rinse your mouth with one of the following solutions: in a glass of water at room temperature, dissolve half a teaspoon of baking soda or the same amount of salt, or a few crystals of potassium permanganate, or half a teaspoon of borax - boric acid salt.

And the last tip. If you manage to relieve a toothache, this does not eliminate the need to contact dentist... After all, pain is always a sign of trouble, illness. And if measures are not taken in time, the resulting carious cavity or pulpitis can go to the next stage: periodontitis, osteomyelitis and other dangerous complications develop. Remember this.
