Top 4 Home Remedies to Get Relief from Tooth Sensitivity

Home remedies to get relief from tooth sensitivity


Do you wince in pain when you consume something hot, cold, sweet or sour? The sudden pain in the nerve endings of the teeth is referred to as tooth sensitivity. While it is advised that you consult your dentist, there are some home remedies that can provide you some relief.

1) Oil pulling

When you do oil pulling with coconut oil, the bacteria in your mouth reduce and this reduces tooth sensitivity. Coconut oil is antibacterial by nature and helps reduce plaque. Oil pulling is known to improve overall oral health.

Here’s how to do it,

  • Take one tablespoon of coconut oil and put it into your mouth. It is better to choose extra-virgin oil for this purpose.
  • Swish it in your mouth for 20 minutes.
  • Spit the oil out and rinse your mouth.

You can then go ahead and brush your teeth as you normally do. Do oil pulling every morning before you brush your teeth. However, don’t swallow the oil as it has your mouth’s harmful bacteria. Oil pulling can also be done using sesame seed oil.

2) Salt water

If you have tooth sensitivity, salt water can help you. Salt water helps in creating alkalinity in the mouth so that bacteria cannot thrive there. It also helps in treating gum sores. Here is how to use salt water to get relief from tooth sensitivity,

  • Add half a teaspoon of salt in a cup of warm water.
  • Use this solution to rinse your mouth.
  • If it is painful to swish it around the mouth, you can simply hold it in your mouth for a few minutes.
  • Spit it out and rinse your mouth

Do this twice daily and see the improvement.

3) Clove oil

Cloves have anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and anesthetic properties that are helpful in fighting oral infections and reducing tooth pain.

You can follow any one of the remedies mentioned below:

Remedy #1

  • Grind two cloves and add a little bit of olive oil to it. Apply the paste on the affected tooth and let it be there for at least half an hour.

Remedy #3

You will get relief from tooth sensitivity with these remedies that use clove.

4) Guava leaves

According to Ayurveda, you can get relief from toothache with the help of guava leaves. Using guava leaves for sensitivity is an age-old remedy.
