How do you relieve the pain from a toothache is an age old question. Many people know the excruciating pain a toothache can cause. Toothaches have been going on for centuries. And back then, the speediest remedy was simply to go to the barber (yes, the barber) and have it pulled. Some people have gone to extreme measures by trying to pull the tooth themselves to get the pain to stop.

Some people even believed tiny worms were the culprit for toothaches and removed them with wax and seeds. To relieve toothache pain It was told that one shaman, from a time long ago, used a nail and a wooden beam . The tale doesn’t say how the patient faired.

Keep in mind, those people back then didn’t have the modern technology or even the knowledge that’s available today. So, to their credit, they had to get…creative. Obviously, these are not the best approach to relieve toothache pain.

The good news is that none of those methods are a concern for you if you have a toothache today! Your dentist can now treat your aching tooth through a variety of dental innovations.

And they can also provide several types of dental sedation if visiting the dentist gives you anxiety.

If you’re suffering from a toothache, there’s no need to continue to be in pain! Until you can get in to see your dentist, there are a variety of tooth and gum numbing agents you can use for temporary relief. You can also take a pain reliever to calm the tooth until your appointment time.
