Toothaches are a common problem for kids and they can be as distressing for the parent as it is for the child. If you find your little one in pain and you’re unable to visit your dentist right away, there are natural home remedies that can help. Although they won’t eliminate the cause of the toothache, the relief will allow both you and your child to go about your day, pain-free and stress-free.
Chew raw onion for a few minutes or place a piece of raw onion directly on the bad tooth or gum to relieve the pain.
Wheatgrass has natural antibacterial properties that will help fight tooth decay and relieve pain. It will absorb toxins from the gums, reduce the growth of bacteria and keep the infection under control. If you wish, you can also simply chew on wheatgrass.
