There are a number of things that can go wrong with your mouth, but the most common ailments are ones people have been taking care of at home for centuries. Dental caries, puplitis, gingivitis, and periodontis are the most common problems and if left untreated they can become something awful. Most of these problems, which commonly cause swelling and/or pain, can be helped by some old school home remedies.
If you develop swelling or pain and want to avoid the dentist because it’s not too bad yet, first cut out the sweet and brush and floss more mindfully. If that’s not working the way you want, try some clove oil! Clove oil is an all natural anti-inflammatory and pain reliever, and is incredibly effective. If you think your problem can be brushed away then clove oil can help you treat the pain until then. Garlic oil and pulp can be used on open sores or cuts in the gums as a great antiseptic. With their application you’ll notice problems will heal faster. Apple cider vinegar can be used to remove some stains on teeth- although that’s a cosmetic issue and not one relating to infection.
If the problems persist see a dentist ASAP. For more home remedies, take a look at this article: Common Dental Problems – Types, Causes and Home Remedies for Relief!
