Anyone who has had a toothache knows you would do almost anything to get rid of it. There is something that can help. Until you can see a dentist, try these homemade toothache remedies that really work.
Toothaches are the worst! Just a few weeks ago, one of my kiddos was reduced to tears because of a problem with his tooth. We got him into the dentist just as soon as we could, but it broke my heart to see him in such pain, unable to offer any help. Then, just the other day, my eldest daughter was also complaining of tooth pain! Fortunately, by this point, I was an expert on the matter and I could use a few of the home remedies I learned on my son to help my daughter with her tooth pain. Say goodbye to over the counter medication, we were able to reduce her tooth pain with things we had around the house, until, of course, we could get her into the dentist.
