Patient discussion about odontalgia

Q. Can anyone suggest a method which will prevent a toothache without any medication? My mom is a great singer which has been her passion for the past 35 years. She has thousands of fans of her and I am one among them. She used to sing for us at home in our every night ‘get-togethers’ which made us relax after a strenuous work day. But for the past 4 months all her fans are very upset because my mother has been suffering from a toothache which has made it difficult for her to sing. We tried many medicines but in vain. Can anyone suggest a method which will prevent a toothache without any medication?

A. May I know her name? I may be one of her fans too... It's an old wives’ tale but does provide TEMPORARY relief...WHISKEY on the gums. This is only a TEMPORARY relief until you get to the dentist but it does help numb the gums. Clove oil works excellently well too. It is quite strong, but serves its purpose. Dentists are the best. There is no life without oxygen. So it is best to get to the root cause to cure the problem.
