When you are dealing with a tooth abscess, everything is a struggle. It is an annoying dental issue that won’t go away that easily, especially if left untreated. Thus, it is a serious matter that should be dealt with immediately so it won’t get worse. For this specific dental pain, I would strongly recommend natural treatments. Specifically, you can treat a tooth abscess successfully using cloves in various natural methods. Hence, keep reading and see the best 4 natural methods with cloves to treat tooth abscess efficiently.
The first method would be using raw cloves to chew. Clove contains potent antibacterial, antiseptic and analgesic properties that can chase away even the worst of bacterial infections with ease. What exactly you need to do? Just place a clove in your mouth and make sure that you press it nicely between the abscessed tooth and the cheek. Then, chew the clove slowly to release its juice into the infected site. You should chew the clove for about 30 minutes and then rinse your mouth with lukewarm water.
The second method consists of using clove oil with a cotton ball. After you soaked the cotton ball in clove oil, place it on the tooth abscess and keep it there for about 30 minutes. After this, rinse your mouth with lukewarm water.
As a third method, you could also mix clove with coconut oil if you are not comfortable with clove’s smell. The coconut oil flavor will take away that smell. Thus, you should begin by crushing about 2 or 3 raw cloves into powder. Then, add the coconut oil to a heating pan and when it is hot enough, add the clove powder too. Let is sit on the heat for another minute and then cool it down at room temperature. Apply it directly to the abscessed tooth and wait for an hour; after an hour rinse your mouth with lukewarm water. This remedy should be applied at least once a day to get relief from tooth abscess and its painful symptoms.
The fourth method to get rid of a tooth abscess is using cloves with hydrogen peroxide. I know it might seem strange using these ingredients together but the mixture actually is very effective. All you have to do is mix 1 tablespoon of clove oil with 2-3 drops of hydrogen peroxide into a small bowl. Then, you need to soak a cotton ball into this mixture and apply it directly to the infected tooth as well as the gums surrounding it. After 15 minutes, remove the cotton and rinse your mouth thoroughly with lukewarm water. For this remedy to work, you should apply the mixture at least twice a day.
There you have them, 4 easy, quick and effective methods to get relief from a tooth abscess. Most importantly, you can do this using only natural ingredients, as you see, using cloves.
