How to Treat a Sinus Toothache Naturally

Sinus toothache is caused when an infection of the sinuses causes pressure on the roots of the teeth. A sinus toothache can be difficult to diagnose and treat. There are, however, several different ways you can treat a sinus toothache naturally with items found in your kitchen pantry. Try some of these methods first, and if your sinus toothache pain still cannot be controlled, you might want to consult a physician. Typically, treating the sources of the pain - the sinus problem - will get rid of the sinus toothache quickly.

Things You'll Need
  • Garlic (capsules and cloves)
  • Clove essential oil
  • Turmeric
  • Ginger root
  • Oregon Graperoot tincture
Tips

1. Take garlic to fight a sinus toothache. This common kitchen herb is a powerful natural bacteria fighter, and is used to treat all the causes of a sinus toothache. Take up to three 600 milligram capsules per day, until the pain subsides. If the pain is severe, bruise a fresh garlic clove, and hold it directly to the affected tooth. Remove if/when it begins to sting.

2. Use clove essential oil to treat a sinus toothache. Cloves are one of nature's most powerful pain relievers. Place a few drops of the essential oil on a cotton swab and apply directly to the affected area. Relief from the sinus toothache should be felt immediately, and the numbness will last up to an hour.

3. Make a turmeric paste to a sinus toothache. Not only is this spice antibacterial and anti-inflammatory, it will also decrease the pain associated with a sinus toothache. Make a paste of turmeric by mixing it with a little water, and then apply the paste directly to the pained area.

4. Take ginger root to treat a sinus toothache. This root is a powerful anti-inflammatory agent, and also contains pain-relieving properties. It will fight the underlying infection, as well as relieving the pain caused by the sinus toothache. Take up to eight 600 milligram capsules per day, or up to one teaspoon of chopped fresh root per day, or 10-20 drops of tincture mixed with water three times per day.

5. Take Oregon graperoot tincture to treat a sinus toothache. A powerful antibacterial, antimicrobial, and anti-inflammatory, this herb is useful for treating both the infection and pain caused by a sinus toothache. Combine 15-30 drops of the tincture in water, and take up to three times per day until symptoms persist.
