The main causes and natural remedies to apply locally to prevent and relieve a dental or gingival abscess.
When you experience a strong pulsing pain to your gums or teeth, with a swelling feeling, you probably have an abscess. The dentist can treat the area to restore healthy teeth and gums and eliminate the pus. This means that we must eliminate the thick liquid swelling around the tooth.
While you wait for the antibiotic to act, you can find relief by applying natural products locally. These medications will not cure the problem, but they will make you feel better for a couple of hours.
Let’s see the main causes of abscess and the ways to prevent and relieve the related pain with natural products.
Dental abscess: causes
How does an abscess develop? For as much as you can pay attention to your oral hygiene, you can overlook some teeth, especially those behind. If you do not cure cavities in time, they can cause an abscess on your gum or tooth.
A bad oral hygiene can lead to the accumulation of bacteria between your teeth and gums, causing an inflammation to the bone.
Among the most common causes there are also gastric reflux or diabetes.
Dental abscess: remedies
If you are suffering from abscess, the dentist will prescribe an antibiotic. In the meantime, if you want to find immediate relief from this pain, you need pain-killing and calming products. However, these remedies cannot replace the antibiotic.
Dilute cloves essential oil and apply it directly on the sore tooth. Alternatively, you can apply locally sage, mint, and lemongrass essential oils.
Finally, the best remedy is prevention. Take care of your dental health by brushing your teeth regularly two or three times a day. Floss to remove residues of food between your teeth and to prevent deposits which may inflame your gums.
