TOOTHACHE AYURVEDIC TREATMENT

Toothache (dantshool) mainly comprises the jaw and tooth area where toothaches originate. Ayurvedic cure for toothache involves pacifying the kapha dosha. 6 Given below are some ahar (diet) and vihar (lifestyle regime) recommendations for the treatment of toothache.

Diet Recommendations (Aahar)

  • Sticky substance which may stick to the teeth should be avoided
  • Food containing sugar and other sweets should be avoided
  • Fruits like guavas, oranges, pomegranates and other fruits of the citrus family are beneficial as they contain vitamin C which strengthens gums
  • Amla must form the part of the diet since it contains the largest amount of vitamin C and is easily available.

Lifestyle changes (Vihar)

  • Maintain a good oral hygiene such as brushing regularly and frequently rinsing of the mouth
  • Make a habit of rinsing the mouth after every meal
  • Use natural oils and extracts from clove oil for toothache. Dab a cotton ball in clove oil on the affected tooth and gently bite down. The natural properties of clove oil can help relieve tooth pain and prevent future cavities and bad breath
  • Using saline water to rinse the mouth after meals helps in curing toothache and even other tooth-related problems.
  • Mix equal amounts of pepper, salt and few drops of water to form a paste. Apply this paste on the affected area to relieve toothache.
