A toothache can ruin the best planned day in a matter of minutes, which is why you have to learn a little bit about why your tooth hurts before aiming to heal it at home. If you just started your toothache pain, try looking at the one that aches in the mirror. If it appears to have a small hole or a “black spot” in it, odds are you are seeing the signs of a cavity brewing. If you’ve managed to break a piece of your tooth off, lose a filling, or have some form of abscess, you need to get to a dentist sooner than later. Cavities require dentists as well, but if the pain has just begun you can probably wait to get an appointment until it fits your schedule for a day or two. Throbbing pain can send you to the emergency room as nerve pain from your teeth can be absolutely dreadful. If your pain is that severe, get to a dentist to get some antibiotics for infection if needed or at least some pain medication.

You’re not expected to place freezing ice cubes directly onto your gums, but placing an ice pack on the side of your face where the pain hurts inside can work wonders. You should wrap the ice in a towel or thin cloth, to avoid hurting your skin and leave it on for anywhere up to 20 minutes.
