Even if the world is facing a famine, your dental issue is something that will trouble you the most. Dental problems can be very painful and messy. Are you facing any of them? If you are scared of the dentist, here's good news for you! You don't really need to see the dentist for every dental issue of yours. Here are some easy do it yourself solutions for your teeth and mouth problems.
Sensitive teeth are often a result of open tissues that get exposed to dirt. You can avoid its painful outcomes by not brushing very hard, use a soft toothbrush. Refrain from using whitening, tartar-control, and baking-soda toothpastes, they can be coarse in nature and they also contain phosphates, which makes your teeth sensitive.
In case of loss of tooth you need to act pretty fast. Quickly rinse your tooth and place it again to its original position and bite down placing a tea bag or a moist soft cloth between your teeth. Your roots tend to accept your tooth back if placed properly in while. After a few days you will witness that your tooth is positioned and placed as if it is a new one.
Burned palate or roof of your mouth isn't very painful and that's why we tend to ignore it. It can make your tissues thinner and be an invitation to many infections. You can apply a corticosteroid paste on the affected area; it creates a protective coating on the burn and speeds healing.
If you are getting a burning sensation on your tongue, take a cup of warm water and add a pinch of salt in it and rinse your mouth with it. It soothes your tongue and can speed healing. Salt takes the infection to the surface of the tissue in which it is present in, from where it is eliminated from your body. Salt helps in neutralizing the acidic environment in your mouth that promotes growth of bacteria and other oral issues.
When your jaws become sore your muscles demand more of comfort. It is recommended that you must move your jaw around constantly. You can also try sleeping on back or towards the side with a supportive pillow, instead of facedown; this will relax your jaw and speed its healing.
One of the treatments for canker sore can be applying vegetable oil on a cotton ball and holding it against the sore for about 5 to 10 minutes, and repeating the same three or four times a day. The oil covers the sore and lessens irritation and itchiness.
Home remedies are productive and easy at the same time. They don't need much effort and give out the finest results. And the best part about them is you can do it yourself!
