The unwritten rule is that the tooth always starts hurting on Friday at noon or before public holidays, when most of the dentists are not working. Fortunately, there’s a solution that will at least slightly reduce the hassle.
Toothache is definitely one of the most troublesome pains that can happen to you. But, using this simple trick, the tooth will stop bothering you, at least until you reach the nearest dentist.
Research conducted in Canada showed that a toothache can be eliminated or at least mitigated without opening the mouth. All you need is ice cubes that you put in the crease between the thumb and forefinger. Gently rub ice on the area for 5 to 7 minutes.
This segment of the palm is the place which contains the nerve endings that are associated with the center for pain in the brain that controls the level of pain in the hands and head. Rubbing ice blocks the centers, and 90 percent of the respondents who participated in the survey confirmed that this technique alleviated their toothache.
