How to Relieve Tooth Decay and Cavities Naturally at Home

Decay is a hole in the tooth caused by acid released by the bacteria that proliferate in the oral cavity. Tooth decay progresses from day to day and needs to be treated quickly to prevent it from weakening the tooth and reaching the nerve.

When small, teeth decay are painless, however, feeling unbearable pain is bad sign because it means it is near the nerve. It is necessary to stop consuming sugar, which is the first source of bacteria in the mouth, to have an irreproachable hygiene and to avoid the passage of the hot to the cold which may sensitize the tooth.

While waiting for the appointment at the dentist, it is possible to relieve dental pain by using 100% natural methods simple to prepare at home and very inexpensive.

Mix of sea salt and lemon
Mix ½ teaspoon of sea salt with ½ teaspoon of lemon juice to obtain a homogeneous paste. Apply to the painful tooth and let it act a few minutes before rinsing the mouth with warm water.

The high vitamin C content of the lemon and its anti-inflammatory properties make it possible to fight the infection and inflammation associated with
teeth decay. As for sea salt, it eliminates bacteria (the leading cause of teeth decay) thanks to its antiseptic and antifungal action.

Studies have demonstrated the benefits of licorice to combat dental plaque and the appearance of dental caries naturally thanks to the flavonoids it contains.
