We all know that toothache can be very painful and make our life hell . If it is in the dead of night it is all the more pathetic and unbearable. It is hard to go to the doctor at that time of night and it is apparently so petty trouble that we won’t consider running to the hospital to get rid of it . It isthen a truly miserable situation . I faced this situation very recently so I can understand how critical it can be .I was all at sea as it happened in the dead of night . I woke up and boiled water and put some salt in it and gargled but nothing improved . I couldn't bear it and started crying . I felt so helpless . I searched for the mouth wash and there it was . I gargled with it but that could not help me either . Suddenly it clicked in my mind and I pressed some toothpaste there . To my greatest astonishment after few seconds there was remission of the pain . I washed my mouth and went off to sleep . This is truly unbelievable and my dentist friend did not believe it at all when I related to her later but trust me I got relief and so wanted to share it with you .
