  • Over-the-counter pain relievers: Medications like ibuprofen and acetaminophen can help reduce pain and inflammation.

  • Cold compresses: Placing a cold compress, such as a bag of frozen peas or a cold pack, on the swollen area can help reduce swelling and numb the area.

  • Saltwater rinse: Mixing a teaspoon of salt in a cup of warm water and rinsing your mouth with the solution can help reduce swelling and pain.

  • Clove oil: Clove oil has been traditionally used to relieve tooth pain, and some research has suggested that it can help reduce inflammation as well. You can apply a drop of clove oil to the affected tooth or mix it with a carrier oil and use it as a mouthwash.

  • Tea bag: Black tea bag, dampened with warm water and placed over the affected tooth, the tannic acid in the tea can help reduce inflammation and ease tooth pain.

  • Hydrogen peroxide: Mixing a teaspoon of hydrogen peroxide in a cup of warm water and using it as a mouthwash can help reduce swelling and pain.

  • Visit a dentist: if you are experiencing severe tooth pain and swelling, it is important to see a dentist as soon as possible. They can determine the cause of the problem and provide appropriate treatment, such as a filling or root canal.

It’s important to note that these remedies only provide temporary relief and it’s highly recommended to visit a dentist near you as soon as possible to treat the underlying issue.
