In the social-media, screen based, hectic world of today, a few minutes of peace and calm are often difficulty to find. So often we are target of frantic advertising campaigns.
Today, the professionals at Smiles Nambour would like to offer up this small diversion from our busy workdays. So, here we offer a list of alleged “dental facts” that actually don’t make sense.
Most myths related to how to cure a toothache are quite entertaining, if almost always recommending a useless treatment.
- First is the myth that hard alcohol can be used to treat toothache. While alcohol is an antiseptic and an astringent it is also likely to irritate the gums, only distracting from the pain. Alcohol is also known to have negative effects on general dental health. While a drink or two a day isn’t likely to do any damage to your dental health, you are better off swallowing your drinks than applying them to your teeth.
- Next on the hit list is the idea that cloves can cure a toothache. FALSE! Cloves do contain eugenol, a chemical that actually can cleanse and numb an area, so they can be used for temporary relief from the pain of a toothache. But no amount of cloves will address the source of the problem. Cloves will, however, make your breath smell like fragrant food!
- Finally, perhaps the funniest myth, that kissing a donkey, or some similar equine, can cure a toothache. This is simply not true – no matter how many donkeys you kiss your toothache will not go away. Your breath will probably get worse and the donkey will become aggravated, but that is all. The best answer to a toothache is to see your Smiles Nambour And we are easier to contact than most donkeys!
