This has many antiseptic, analgesic and antibacterial properties. Curcumin can help stop your tooth pain and can prevent infections and abscesses.
If you want to use turmeric to help with your tooth pain add a teaspoon of turmeric powder into a small amount of water. Add some of this paste to a cotton ball and apply it directly to your sore tooth or gum.
Other tips to help a toothache:
· Avoid chewing on the affected tooth/area and
· Minimize extreme temperatures of hot and cold.
· Keeping the area clean and free of food debris may help as well.
