Toothache Day: A Reminder to Keep Your Child's Teeth Healthy

toothache day

February 9th marks Toothache Day, a day dedicated to raising awareness about the importance of oral health and the prevention of toothaches. At Just 4 Kids Teeth in Hendersonville, Tennessee, we understand that toothaches can be a painful and stressful experience for both children and parents. That’s why we strive to provide a kid-friendly environment where children feel comfortable, and parents can trust that their child is receiving the best care possible.

Home Remedies for Toothaches 


While visiting the dentist is the best way to diagnose and treat a toothache, there are some steps parents can take at home to provide temporary relief for their child. 


  • Use over-the-counter pain relievers: Children’s ibuprofen or acetaminophen can help alleviate pain and inflammation. 
  • Apply a cold compress: Placing a cold compress on the cheek near the affected tooth can help numb the area and reduce swelling. 
  • Rinse with salt water: Mixing a teaspoon of salt in a cup of warm water and rinsing the mouth can help reduce inflammation and kill bacteria. 
  • Clove oil: Applying a small amount of clove oil to a cotton ball and placing it on the affected tooth can also help numb the area and reduce pain.
