How to Use Essential Oils for Toothache by Loving Essential Oils

A toothache always strikes without warning and can be caused by multiple dental issues. You are caught off guard and unprepared, looking for a natural remedy to alleviate the pain. Next time this occurs, try essential oils for toothache and get immediate relief.

Oral hygiene is a must for good health. Home remedies with essential oils can be used on a daily basis to care for teeth and oral health. 

The past studies have found that there is a connection between oral health and heart health, as well as systemic diseases.  

All you need are a few natural ingredients to help relieve a toothache. You can even try adding all-natural mouthwash recipes to your daily routine to prevent mouth pain and bad breath.

What Causes Toothaches?

Possible causes of toothache include:

  • Cavities
  • Loose filling
  • Exposed root
  • Cracked tooth
  • Infected tooth (abscess)
  • Damaged crown
  • Tooth grinding
  • Sinus infection

I recently had a toothache, it wasn't severe but it was definitely irritated and tender whenever I tried to eat. I applied essential oils to the area of soreness and after 3 applications it was gone. I was glad to avoid the dentist, but if the pain persisted, then that's where I was headed.

Essential oils can assist with the discomfort and tide you over until you get to the dentist, but they should not be a long term solution for tooth pain. Pain is a sign that there may be a big issue, and it is best to find out the cause so you can correct it.

Essential Oils for Toothaches

Essential oils can help ease mouth pain, reduce inflammation, and fight off infection. There are many different essential oils to try when tooth pain occurs. Top choices are clove essential oil and peppermint essential oil, but other oils can assist as well.

  • Clove Essential Oil
  • Peppermint Essential Oil
  • Tea Tree Oil
  • Cinnamon Essential Oil
  • Frankincense Oil
  • Myrrh Essential Oil
  • Lavender Oil
  • Thyme Essential Oil

Clove Oil For Toothache

Clove oil is one of the most effective essential oils. It is a super-strong antioxidant. In the past, people have used this oil to cope with their toothache.

It is a powerful remedy as it has certain antibacterial properties and thus, it can inhibit the growth of bacteria in the mouth (here is the study). Plus, it is an effective natural disinfectant.

Clove oil contains eugenol, a chemical constituent that has antiseptic and analgesic properties. Clove oil produces a numbing effect that can ease discomfort and tooth pain. It is a common ingredient in mouthwash, toothpaste, and other oral care preparations.

Clove oil is known to be one of the best remedies for a toothache. Apart from the clove oil, you can chew on a dried clove bud, which is also an effective toothache home remedy.

Peppermint Oil For Toothache

Peppermint oil is another effective essential oil that is used frequently to treat mouth pain. This oil is also an effective toothache home remedy from dental carries or tooth decay. It contains menthol, a chemical constituent that can reduce the soreness of the teeth and inflammation as well.

When a toothache continues for a while, it can cause a headache. Peppermint oil is extremely useful to help a toothache but also the headache caused by it.

How to Use Essential Oils for Toothache

Using essential oils to treat a toothache is pretty straightforward. Only use pure essential oils. If irritation occurs, you should discontinue use. Here are a few ways you can use essential oils for your teeth:

1. Directly on Tooth and Gums

It is best to dilute essential oil first. This includes applying it to the inside of your mouth. You can do this by mixing a drop of essential oil into a small dab of virgin or fractionated coconut oil. Once mixed, apply a small amount of mixture to the affected area (sore tooth and surrounding gums) using a cotton swab, cotton ball, or fingertip.

Clove oil is always my first choice when it comes to an aching tooth. It not only eases the discomfort by numbing it, but it also reduces the inflammation.

2. Inhale the Aroma

In some cases, you may wish to use aromatherapy as well when treating pain. Inhaling the aroma of oils like lavender and chamomile can relax you, ease tension, and may even relieve your pain.

3. Topically to Skin

You may choose to apply essential oils along the jawline of the side that hurts. This is another effective way to use these oils because the skin can absorb the oil and its therapeutic compounds. Use caution with clove, cinnamon, thyme, and other hot oil as they need to be diluted well to prevent skin irritation. 

A cold compress or an ice pack can help ease dental pain, especially if a toothache is due to injury or swollen gums. Try holding an ice pack or frozen peas for a few minutes to the area on the outside of the cheek

You can also make various blends and mixtures with essential oils. It is really a matter of preference. Here are some essential oil recipes for toothaches.

Essential Oil Recipes for Toothaches

Want to mix up a small batch of toothache oil for easier application? Here are a few essential oil blends for toothaches:

 

Clove Tooth Balm

  • 1 teaspoon Virgin Coconut Oil
  • 2 drops Clove Oil
  • 2 drops Frankincense Essential Oil
  • Mini Glass Jar

Directions: Add all ingredients to a jar and mix to blend together. Works best if coconut oil is at room temperature. Use a cotton swab to apply. When you are applying these essential oils to treat the toothaches, remember that you have to cover the tooth properly as well as the gum area.

 

Tooth Pain Roller Blend

  • 2 drops Peppermint
  • 2 drops Lavender
  • Jojoba Oil
  • 10 ml Roller bottle

Directions: Add the essential oils to the bottle, fill the rest of the bottle with jojoba oil. Blend the oils together and apply to the jawline on the outside of the mouth where the soreness is located.

 

If the pain gets out of hand or does not resolve, you should see a dentist. Essential oils are an effective toothache home remedy that you can use in order to get rid of inflammation, discomfort, and pain. 

What are some other essential oils for tooth pain?

Eucalyptus, rosemary, basil, marjoram, geranium, jasmine, lemon, cypress, grapefruit, ginger, sandalwood, or palmarosa are some other essential oils that can help tooth pain. They can be applied topically along the jawline where the pain is. Be sure to dilute with a carrier oil before applying to skin.
