Sometimes pain, hyperactivity at others
When it comes to tooth pain, the first association that the greatest majority of people gets is the one of incessant and splitting or throbbing pain. However, this is not the only way that our teeth try to tell us something is wrong. This can also be embodied in extreme sensitivity to just about anything that is slightly more cold or hot. And in specific cases even too sweet and too sour combination might induce undesired and unpleasant tooth sensations. The pain itself is a rather specific one, namely, it is mirrored in the fact that the pain seems as if it will never seize, not that easily and on its own at least. Despite the fact that tooth remedies can alleviate the pain in question, in order for a person to free him/herself from it completely, a visit to the dentist is but a must. This visit will reveal what the underlying causes of tooth pain are, so your dentist could get right down to business and solve the problem with utmost success. In the greatest majority of cases, at the root of this extremely unpleasant pain is none other than tooth decay itself.
Home remediation, one of the possible solutions
If a person is more in favor of natural and more easily available remedies that can be applied with success in the comfort of one's home, then the following may be extremely helpful:
Regarded as a first step to relieving the pain is vigorously rinsing one's mouth with regular water. Since certain food leftovers tend to stuck in between one's teeth, this is surely to drive them out, leaving toothache in the past. Of course, at times, simple water rinsing is not sufficient for the aforementioned food particles to be driven out. In that case, one should give it a go with a gentle dental floss. Yet another quick solution is employment of ice packs and their placement on the tooth that gives one trouble, since this will numb the area and thus free the person from any pain. Given the fact that this represents only a temporary solution to the problem, it may be employed when a person cannot reach his/her dentist immediately. Salt water rinsing can also do wonders for toothache. The water should be adapted to the room temperature and mixed with one teaspoon of salt. Once this done, a person should begin rinsing, for this will almost immediately provide relief.
