Saltwater Rinse

Mix half a teaspoon of salt in 8 ounces of warm water. Use this solution as a mouthwash and swish it around your mouth for 30 seconds before spitting it out. This may help reduce inflammation and cleanse the mouth.

Cold Compress

Apply a cold compress or ice pack to the affected area on the outside of your cheek. This may help numb the area and reduce swelling.

Clove Oil

Soak a cotton ball in clove oil and apply it to the affected tooth. Clove oil has natural numbing properties and can provide temporary relief.

Peppermint Tea Bags

Use a cooled peppermint tea bag by placing it against the affected area. Peppermint has mild numbing properties and may help soothe the pain.

Avoid Trigger Foods

Stay away from extremely hot, cold, sweet, or acidic foods that may exacerbate the pain.
