Toothache Home Remedies - How to Get Rid of Toothache
Toothache is pain in or around a tooth. Toothaches cause of a dental cavity and gum disease. Tooth decay is the primary cause of toothaches for most children and adults. Bacteria that live in your mouth thrive on the sugars and starches in the food you eat. These bacteria form a sticky plaque that clings to the surface of your teeth. Dental cavities (caries) are holes in the two outer layers of a tooth called the enamel and the dentin. The enamel is the outermost white hard surface and the dentin is the yellow layer just beneath the enamel. Both layers serve to protect the inner living tooth tissue called the pulp, where blood vessels and nerves reside. Certain bacteria in the mouth convert simple sugars into acid. The acid softens and (along with saliva) dissolves the enamel and dentin, creating cavities. There may be severe pain to pressure, or to hot or cold stimuli. Other signs and symptoms toothache is hot or cold sensitivity, bleeding or discharge from around a tooth or gums, swelling around a tooth or swelling of your jaw and injury or trauma to the area. Avoid very cold or hot foods because this may make the pain worse. Relief may be obtained from biting on a cotton ball soaked in oil of cloves. Acetaminophen should be used for children and teenagers.
Cavities and tooth decay are one of the most common health problems around the world. Cavities are decayed areas of your teeth that develop into tiny openings or holes. Good teeth are an important part of one's health and appearance. Gum disease refers to inflammation of the soft tissue (gingiva) and abnormal loss of bone that surrounds the teeth and holds them in place. Gum disease is caused by toxins secreted by bacteria in "plaque" that accumulate over time along the gum line. This plaque is a mixture of food, saliva, and bacteria. Cracked Tooth Syndrome" refers to toothache caused by a broken tooth (tooth fracture) without associated cavity or advanced gum disease.Biting on the area of tooth fracture can cause severe sharp pains. These fractures are usually due to chewing or biting hard objects such as hard candies, pencils, nuts, etc. Impacted (teeth pressing together) or erupting (tooth growing out or "cutting") molar teeth (the large teeth in the back of the jaw) can cause pain. As the molar teeth erupt, the nearby tissues can become inflamed and swollen.
