Gold Coast Dentist: Tips To Reduce Cheek & Face Swelling Due To Tooth Abscess

Does it feel like your face has doubled in size due to all the swelling that’s going on? That is actually a common case happening to people suffering from tooth abscesses.

It is usually accompanied by a bad salty taste in your mouth and throbbing pain whenever you chew. And the swelling starts to occur while you are asleep.

People suffering from tooth abscesses are advised to take antibiotic medicines.

However, there are times when there is no difference in the swelling, even after taking some medicines. Below are some easy-to-apply remedies that you can do at home:

Gargle lukewarm salt and water solution. This solution is regarded as natural antibacterial solution. It helps by killing some of the nasty bacteria that cause the swelling.

Sugarless natural cranberry juice. This may not work for everyone, but some people reported that they feel better after regular drinking of natural cranberry juice with no sugar added.

Never pop the abscess yourself. You will be at risk of infection if you pop it up on your own. The swelling will increase once the infection spreads to other parts of your jaw.

Take more natural vitamin D. Eating more foods that are good sources of vitamin D will benefit you much because it is known for its anti-inflammatory properties.

Tea tree oil. To speed up your recovery, use tea tree oil to kill the mouth dwelling bacteria. Consuming just the tea tree oil alone might irritate your stomach, so apply a drop of the oil to the top of your toothpaste.

The remedies mentioned above can help reduce the swelling but it cannot cure the entire problem about the tooth abscess.
