Are you tired of doing whatever you can to stop that annoying toothache only to see little success? Don't be discouraged, there are hundreds of people like you out there. The good news is that there are solutions out there and especially two simple yet effective techniques that work fast.

How to Cure a Toothache

Toothaches are one of the worst pains that you can ever encounter. They are mainly caused if the central part of your tooth (the pulp) is inflamed for whatever reason. So other causes can be from cavities, sinus infections and even a physical accident such as getting hit by a ball in the face. However despite the cause, you shouldn't be too worried. Even though the pain is hard to deal with, you can overcome it.

I mentioned earlier that the pulp is the most sensitive area of the tooth because that is where all the nerves are located. This can also be used to our advantage because toothaches can be blocked by another nerve pathway in the body.

Find an ice cube and place it between your index finger and thumb on the same side where the pain is. Hold on to it for a few minutes and you should slowly feel the pain going away. This is because toothaches and that place on the hand share the same pain pathway so if one is numbed, so is the other.

How to Cure a Toothache

Alcohol is well known to people to be extremely powerful and cause negative effects if it is consumed in large amounts. However, it does have positive properties as it is a strong disinfectant. Rinse your mouth with strong alcohol like whisky and you should feel the pain going away. However, don't do it too often because it might start burning your mouth. Like any other treatment, you should always be careful and lessen any risks of negative effects.
