So you’re experiencing tooth pain, and upon closer inspection, you’ve noticed a small pimple-like bump forming on your gums close to the affected tooth. This is likely due to an abscessed tooth. Don’t panic; it’s not the end of the world (well, maybe for bacteria). While antibiotics are a typical course of treatment for such infections, several natural remedies may help alleviate symptoms and prevent complications.
Understanding What Causes Abscessed Teeth
To treat something effectively, it’s essential first to understand what causes it in the first place. In this case, bacterial infection is most frequently responsible for causing dental abscesses. These infections occur when microorganisms penetrate through cracks in teeth or fillings into deeper layers containing blood vessels and nerves.
Most commonly implicated species include Staphylococcus Aureus (golden staph) Streptococcus Viridans both Gram-positive cocci along with aerobic mandibularis as well as anaerobic bacteroides fragilis belonging in gram-negative rods family also have been isolated from samples obtained from purulent exudate aspirates-the technical term we use daily by squeezing ain’t nothin‘ else but pus!
Forms Of Dental Abscesses
There are three types:
All vary depending on where they start since some can develop within or around the root canal system while other could be present near gums/bone level-respectively
Symptoms To Look Out For
While symptoms may vary among individuals based on factors like dental history and immune health levels here are general signs that suggest there might be something abnormal happening inside your mouth:
- Persistent throbbing pain radiating towards adjacent jawline
- Swelling in gums.
- Difficulty with opening up your mouth or swallowing things- take caution to avoid choking
- Tooth sensitivity especially when consuming food/drinks that are too hot, too cold, highly acidic/ sugary (OUCH!!)
- Bad breath and bitter taste inside the affected area (thanks for the reminder)
Always be on vigil mode as early diagnosis can help prevent complications further down along the road. From gum recession/strips damage to reduced blood flow even sepsis (THIS IS SCARY)
Natural Methods of Alleviating Pain And Reduced Development
If you’ve been diagnosed with an abscessed tooth or suspect it from personal research/treatment here are several natural means of reducing symptoms/healing.
Warm Salt Water Rinses
Saltwater gargles have proven effective in relieving pain reduction since salt commonly functions as a ‘natural antiseptic’- there’s nothing doctoring sea dwelling creatures couldn’t teach us right? So start every morning before brushing away those leftover rudiments! By gently rinsing your mouth with warm salt water (make sure it is not any hotter than lukewarm temperature). Not only will this help kill harmful microorganisms accumulating upon said lesion but also reduce swelling faster promoting healing process equally sooner.

Ice-cubes or any other cooling agent matched with temperature setting capable delivering feel good factor below freezing point placed onto cloth/wrap 20 mins at time preferably spaced out adding regular intervals .This method might also assist easing migraine/headache tinnitus-(Ugh thats brutal!)
Clove Oil To The Rescue
Cloves bring a nostalgic aroma especially during festive festivities!, however what most people fail realize beyond exciting holiday booger pranks-they contain eugenol which acts as local analgesic by numbing nerves responsible conducting oral sensory signals
Clove oil can be used topically quite efficiently there are few drops added directly onto toothbrush/q-tip then massaged gently within affected region henceforth reduces discomforts temporarily if done regularly– frequency varies between individuals.
