This trouble appears in two opposite characters. In the one
it is cured by rightly applied heat, and in the other by cold. If it is
merely the soft substance in the tooth which is affected, local cooling
applications will cure, if persisted in. If it be the nerve terminating
in the tooth which is irritated, then even the extraction of the tooth
may fail to give relief. Both cold and hot applications to the tooth or
cheek will then probably prove useless.
In such a case, apply COLD TOWELS (see) gently pressed over the head
and back of the neck. If the case be a bad one, the feet may be put in
a hot bath, or fomented. Persevered in for an hour, this treatment is
almost certain to cure. It may take away all pain in a few minutes.
After the pain is cured, dry well, and keep the head moderately warm.
But if the toothache is caused by a severe chill to the head, and that
be still cold, it should be packed in a hot fomentation. This gives
almost instant relief. Rub on a little oil when the fomentation comes
off, and keep the head warm.
It should not be difficult to distinguish the cases requiring heat from
those requiring cold. In any case, if the first application of either
increases the pain, try the other.
