The Best On The Go Remedy For Wisdom Toothaches

 In News

When your wisdom teeth start to come through, the pain can be almost unbearable. Medications and numbing gels can be useful for wisdom tooth pain, but some experience adverse effects with the use of drugs, and tooth gels can be inconvenient for day-to-day use.

An excellent dental professional can certainly help with the pain by removing the wisdom teeth for you, but what are you to do about the pain while waiting for your appointment?

So how can those of us who lead busy lives avoid pain while on the go?


A 2006 study concluded that clove gel shows promise to have the ability to replace benzocaine as a topical numbing agent during medical procedures. This promise comes as a result of the two substances performing similarly well in pain response tests on patients.

If you are suffering from wisdom tooth pain, you want to avoid medications, and you are unable to use oral pain gels while at work or on the go, try rubbing the tooth with a cotton ball soaked with a few drops of clove oil. Alternately, you can use a whole clove for relief by biting down gently with it placed on your gums on the area where the wisdom tooth is located.

Other recommended remedies for wisdom tooth pain include the apparent ice pack, tea, and saltwater rinses while at home. It has even been suggested that onions can reduce swelling and fight infection, and can be used in the same way that cloves can for pain relief. But who wants onion breath?
