 Homeopathy: Toothaches 
 
The information provided here is not only applicable to children but to most people with toothaches.


REMEDIES LISTED IN CAPITOL LETTERS REPRESENT MORE FREQUENTLY INDICATED REMEDIES

  • Severe tooth pain should receive care from a dentist.

Aconitum: When children experience sharp and excruciating dental pain that makes them frantic, this medicine should be considered. The pains are usually worse at night and by cold. They cause great restlessness and anxiety.

ARNICA: This medicine is good to be taken pre- and post-operatively for tooth extraction or any other dental surgery.

BELLADONNA: When there is rapid onset of throbbing pain that is better by warmth, this medicine is valuable. There is redness and swelling of the gums and a flushed face with hot skin. The children moan, especially when exposed to the air. They tend to have dilated pupils.

Chamomilla: These children experience extreme pain that is worse at night and by warm applications or warm drinks and better by cold things (they prefer to suck on an ice cube). These children are extremely irritable. They cry loudly and persistently. Rocking and carrying them provides relief, but only temporarily.

COFFEA: A toothache that makes children extremely restless and sleepless suggests this medicine. They receive some relief from cold water, while the pain is aggravated by warm drinks or food.

HEPAR SULPHUR: Tooth pain from the slightest touch and from exposure to cold water, food, or air suggests this medicine. These children are hyper-irritable.

HYPERICUM: When children have shooting pains from injury or infection, this medicine should be considered. It is also good for injuries to the front teeth.

Mercurius: Children who salivate profusely during a toothache often need this medicine. The pains are aggravated by biting, cold air, and at night. Their pains may extend to the ears.

Nux moschata: When children have severe throbbing pain that extends to neighboring teeth or to the ear, this medicine should be considered. Usually the pains are aggravated by cold and relieved by warmth.

Plantago: Like children who need Mercurius, these children have much salivation with their toothache. Their teeth are sensitive to touch and to extremes of temperature. They may experience some pain or twitching of the eyelid along with the toothache.

RUTA: This medicine is beneficial before and after a tooth extraction.

Staphysagria: Tooth pain that is so sensitive that children cannot stand the slightest touch suggests the need for this medicine. The pains are worse from cold drinks or cold air.
