ParentCircle

Toothache is one of the worst pains your child could get and alleviating that pain might not be easy. Though it is most advisable to take her to the dentist immediately, there are also a few home remedies you can follow. From using ordinary spices available at home to rub it on the affected teeth to brushing and flossing the teeth well to take away any wedged-in particle, toothache in your child could be dealt in simple ways too.

An article in Delta Dental on toothaches says, “While tooth decay is often the primary cause of a toothache, it's important for you to have a complete oral examination to determine the cause. Other causes of a toothache can include the following:

•Infection

•Gum disease

•Grinding teeth

•Tooth trauma

•An abnormal bite

•Tooth eruption (in babies and school-age children)”

As a pretext, it is also important to realise the necessity of good dental care and health. Most often, the cause of toothaches in your child could be her diet - candy, chocolate pastries and soft drinks contain refined carbohydrates and sugar in various forms, as well as poor dental care habits, such as not brushing, flossing or rinsing.
