My Child Has Toothache- What Can I Do During Quarantine?


If your child is suffering from a toothache you should book an appointment with a general or pediatric dentist. Until then, you can provide temporary relief with home remedies.

Below are eight toothache remedies that you can try at home until you can get your child to a dentist.

1. Warm Salt Water
Have your child swish and rinse his or her mouth out with warm water mixed with salt. The salt kills the bacteria, while the warm water can help ease pain and reduce swelling in the gums.

2. Clove Oil
Squeeze a few drops of clove oil onto a cotton ball until it is slightly soaked, then apply it directly to the tooth to ease the pain.

3. Cold Compress
If the toothache is caused by trauma or injury, placing a cold compress or ice pack on the outside of your child’s cheek can help numb the pain and relieve swelling.

4. Hydrogen Peroxide
Rinse a small amount of hydrogen peroxide with water and swish it like mouthwash. Doing so can bring you relief and ward off gingivitis.

5. Garlic
To relieve tooth pain, garlic can be used as a natural antibiotic. Chop a garlic clove, smash it and, after letting it sit for 10 or so minutes, apply it directly to the area. After a minute or two, rinse your mouth with warm salt water.

Although these are toothache cures, the pain may persist or return. It is still best to see a dentist to make sure there aren’t issues with your child’s dental health.
