If you have recently had root canal surgery, you may be experiencing some discomfort, such as pain and swelling, and may be wondering if there is anything you can do at home to help relieve your symptoms. If so, use the following home remedy to reduce the pain and inflammation, as well as help prevent infection.
Supplies And Ingredients
Before you begin, assemble the following supplies and ingredients. You can find the ingredients for the treatment in the natural health section in department stores, supermarkets, and pharmacies.
The sea salt used in the mouthwash thoroughly cleanses your mouth and kills any germs around the root canal site. It also helps reduce any inflammation in the gums surrounding the tooth.
Chamomile tea and peppermint oil both serve as antiseptics that kill any germs that could lead to an infection. They are both also anti-inflammatories, with analgesic properties that can help reduce any pain you may experience from the root canal site.
Once you have gathered what you need, follow the instructions below to make and use your post-root canal treatment.
Using the above treatment three times a day can help relieve your symptoms after having a root canal. However, if your discomfort becomes worse, you may want to contact the dentist who performed your oral surgery to discuss the possible treatment options available to you.
