Top 5 Causes of Toothaches (And How to Treat Them)
Dr. Craig D. Schmidtke, DDS – Orca Pain Relief Putty
Dr. Craig Schmidtke, Board Certified Oral Surgeon and 27-year veteran dental practitioner, is here to explain the common causes of tooth pain and to suggest ways we can bring the unbearable agony of tooth pain under control without resorting to opioid medications or desperate do-it-yourself fixes that exacerbate the problem.
Here are the Usual Causes of Oral Pain, According to Dr. Schmidtke:
- Trauma – You break a tooth while eating something hard, or you experience physical trauma from an accident or a blow to the face.
- Decay – Usually caused by poor oral home care, decay can quietly creep up underneath a cavity or crown.
- Gum recession – Due to bone loss you can develop gum recession and end up having some sensitive roots that can create pain.
- Infection – Infection of the gum is often caused by bone loss. Infection of the tooth is generally caused by decay. Infection is a “toothache beyond a toothache”.
- Abscessed Tooth – An abscessed tooth is an infection within the tooth, otherwise known as the “pulp chamber,” that has reached the root tip or around the root.
Remedies for Toothaches: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly
“There aren’t many natural or non-prescription remedies available that are truly effective,” says Dr. Schmidtke. “People can take medications like Motrin or ibuprofen to help knock down inflammation and reduce pain. Many of the OTC oral pain relief products will make your whole mouth numb, but they don’t make the tooth numb, and they’re going to run and drip and make your throat numb. Saline rinses can help, and some essential oils, like oil of clove can bring considerable relief.
Dr. Schmidtke says that during his career as an oral surgeon he became increasingly aware of the harm being caused by opioid pain killers and began developing a
non-opioid, all-natural OTC remedy for oral pain which he now uses in his practice and makes available to the public.
Dr. Schmidtke’s Simple Home Remedies for Toothaches
- Take anti-inflammatories like Motrin or ibuprofen and Tylenol or acetaminophen
- Rinse the mouth frequently with warm salt water
- Apply oil of clove to the affected tooth or gum.
Dr. Schmidtke says he’s seen many patients attempt to stop their oral pain using a variety of desperate and often alarming methods. “Soaking one’s head in ice water is a strategy I have seen. And, although it’s become a cliché, I’ve seen many patients who’ve attempted to extract a throbbing tooth by yanking or tugging it out with a string. We’ve also seen patients who’ve attempted to use pliers to pull out a painful tooth but ended up snapping it in half, leaving the roots still in the mouth.”
“Do-it-yourself tooth extractions to stop oral pain tend to end badly,” says Dr. Schmidtke. “Until the tooth can be properly removed, a more sensible strategy would be to control the pain utilize pain relief putty and leave the extraction to a professional.”

The Dangers of Instagram
Amy Van Oudenaren –
For years, parents, educators, therapists, and other professionals have been worried about the impact of Instagram and other forms of social media on teenagers, with numerous studies verifying their concerns. What was not known until recently, however, was how aware Facebook itself is of the harm its Instagram app causes to the teenagers who use it. Facebook knows Instagram is toxic to teens. From the WSJ article, “A professor of psychology and researcher into the harms of social media on kids, Jean Twenge, said, “For some people, it might be tempting to dismiss this as teen girls being sad, but we’re looking at clinical-level depression that requires treatment. We’re talking about self-harm that lands people in the ER.”
BIO: Amy Van Oudenaren is a native Texan, a former missionary in South Sudan and Uganda, and an advocate for limiting the use of screen technologies in child-rearing. She’s currently raising a 1-year-old daughter and writing a novel for young adults. Amy served as a missionary in East Africa for 8 years, working to improve life for those living in poverty.
