Teeth Need to be Handled with Tender Love and Care

There are thirty two teeth in your jaw, but if even one feels pain, then you surely get a 32000 Watt shock. The excruciating pain in your teeth is enough to drive you crazy. Moreover, the most irritating part is that even when you breathe or eat the pain raises its ugly head. Hence, it only makes sense to search for a remedy that will keep you in your sane senses till the time you approach the doctor for some solution to this problem.

More than often, the reason for toothache is cavity. However there can be some other reasons also like mouth injury or abscess tooth. At this point of time even a delay of a couple of hours in the waiting room of the doctor may seem like a month long stretch.

You can take some measures so that this pain does not take a gigantic form. You can keep the following tips in mind and practice them accordingly;

  1. Try to gently remove the food particles from your tooth using a dental floss or a toothbrush. After this rinse your mouth with some warm saline water so that you feel relieved for some time. Rinsing with warm water can be done as many times in a day as you wish.
  2. When suffering from toothache or gum problems, try to avoid food stuff that is either too hot or too cold. This will save you from the stinging pain in your teeth. Also, try to stay away from sticky food.
  3. Pressing cotton balls dipped in clove oil directly on the teeth can help you in reducing pain in your mouth. However, take care that doing this does not aggravate your painful condition. If so happens, then immediately rinse your mouth with warm saline water.
  4. You can also use tea bag and keep it between your teeth or between the cheek and teeth. This will help you in reducing the pain in your mouth.
  5. Ice pack also helps you a lot during these times. Pressing an ice bag against the cheek or closest to the tooth that hurts the most can show significant reduction in your toothache.
  6. Some numbing medications can cut out the sensitivity of nerves and make you feel unaware about your pain.
  7. Some anti inflammatory medications can also reduce the twinge and hence prove beneficial.
  8. At last, if nothing works then you may go to the nearby chemist and get some pain killers for yourself. These will act slowly but will provide you with some relief.

Bad Breath in the Morning? Tips to Avoid it Effectively

Brush up your teeth at night before going to your bed, what you find when you wake up is the bad breath. Don’t believe? Better believe it. Ok let’s not rely on the words and go for a practical attempt.

What you have to do is, when you get up just hold your palm (light side facing you) across your mouth and breathe out, you won’t believe that your breath stinks that time. Early morning is a time when you would have bad breath.

Bad breath always resists you from going and coming in contact with other people and hence it’s always said that ‘better avoid bad breath in the morning’. A question may arise, ‘I always brush my teeth before going to bed then how this happens?’  This has nothing to do with your overnight brushing, what happens is that when you sleep the saliva flows slowly in your mouth and it comes in contact with the bacteria and this combination results in bad breath in the morning.

What can be done?

There is no prescribed way to get rid of the problem but what you can do is, you can have a mint sweet but it will only solve out your problem temporarily.

You can prevent this by:

  • Brush your teeth regularly and after every meal
  • Go for tongue brushing also which will remove the white coat from your tongue which is the birth place for the germs
  •  Visit a dentist after every six months
  • Drink more water to keep your body hydrated and prevent the mouth from getting dry
  • Alcoholic consumption and smoking should be strictly prohibited
  • Avoid consuming milk based product
  • Avoid eating anything, three to four hours before sleep

These are some of the points that if kept in mind can lead to prevent bad breath in the morning.
