Q:

My daughter is having cavity in her 2 molar teeth. She feels pain. Please suggest any good home remedy..



Well you could use a ice pack for the time being. I would suggest please visit a dentist, if the pain is too much. Avoid chocolates and other sweet items

You can put vicks vaporub on that thooth it's will some relief

Give her a small ice cube. Please visit a dentist. Meanwhile give her salt in hot water. Tell her to keep it sometime in her mouth and swish it where pain is there. There will be temporarily relief.

Gargling with Salt in Luke warm water helps temporarily. Put ice pack only if she has swelling. That too not continuously. On and off. And please visit a dentist as soon as possible before the problem becomes big.

I suggest visit dentist

Vicks is not for ingestion. Please do not put in her mouth. Ask her to keep a clove in her mouth where she has pain & leave it there for a short period. Clove is a well known remedy for cavities. It's better to avoid sweet stuff, but if she does eat sweet foods, she should make sure she's brushing her teeth before going to bed. Make an appointment with a doctor to get the cavities filled in so that food doesn't get stuck in there & make the cavity worse.

Vicks on tooth surfaces will lead to swelling and further complications. Not suggested.
