“There are men so philosophical that they can see humour in their own toothaches. But there has never lived a man so philosophical that he could see the toothache in his own humour.”
H. L. Mencken
A toothache is an aching pain in or around a tooth. Generally, toothaches are caused by either tooth decay, inflammation of the gum (gingivitis or peridontis,) or inflammation of the dental pulp (referred to as pulpitis) - in some (worst) cases it is a combination of all three.
Tooth decay (also referred to as dental caries or more casually "having a cavity",) follows a bacterial infection of the the teeth that causes loss of enamel (the hard tissue of the tooth) through demineralisation, usually due to the increased production of acid by the bacteria's fermentation process of food debris accumulated on the tooth surface. So brushing teeth properly is VERY important to avoid tooth decay!
Pulpitis, is an inflammation of the dental pulp. This can be either reversible or irreversible. Irreversible pulpitis can be identified by sensitivity and pain lasting longer than fifteen seconds, although an exception to this may exist if the tooth has been recently operated on. Teeth affected by irreversible pulpitis will need either root canal treatment or extraction of the tooth.
Some causes of toothache are the more obvious: such as a cracked tooth, filling or veneer, dental caries from eating acidic, sweet foods that corrode the fillings and the tooth's protective enamel layer. This corrosion is caused from the bacteria that are present on the teeth which break down the sugars in refined foods and then excrete them in the form of acids, which then eat away at the protective enamel of the tooth, causing a cavity, infection and eventually toothache.
The severity of a toothache can range from a mild discomfort to excruciating pain, which can be experienced either chronically or sporadically. This pain can often be aggravated somewhat by chewing or by hot or cold temperature.
Clove oil may help reduce the pain. To prevent tooth decay it is recommended that you brush at least twice a day, change your tooth brush regularly and brush properly. There are other natural remedies that may help prevent and or treat the symptoms of tooth decay.
So much better tasting than the commercial mouthwashes which I find destroy my taste buds for several hours and leave my mouth quite dry. I use it as a mouthwash daily and also as my go-to for any anti-septic needs. Gentle but effective.
I have not used another toothpaste for years, I love the gel rather than grainy toothpaste. The fact that is green appeals to the child in me!!
Love this product,is really refresh and brought an expected experience when used it...will buy again..
