Best remedy to stop toothache pain at home? I've heard of orajel. Is that the best way to deal with minor toothache pain at home, or are there other, better things? .

.

As : As the other doctors have advised, it is prudent to make an appointment with a dentist and have your teeth checked out to determine the cause of the toothache, however minor. Orajel is only a topical analgesic. It might not effectively relieve your pain. Any painkiller will only temporarily relieve your symptoms, but it is wise to get to the bottom of the problem, so it doesn't return twice as worse. Good luck! ...Read more

Is there something that I can give my child to relieve the pain of teething?

Is there something that I can give my child to relieve the pain of teething?

Yes: Teething is often blamed for periods of fussiness but it's hard to tell when it's really the cause. I'm fond of freezable teething rings that you can trade out as they warm up. You can paint benedryl on gums and get temporary numbing effect. Gels sold for teething but they occasionaly have side effects. All may just distract baby from another minor discomfort but if it helps, try it. ...Read more

Topical DMSO (horse liniment) is also a very effective anti-inflammatory pain reliever. Pain relieving patches merely mask the symptoms, without relieving the underlying inflammation. ...Read more
