Corn Free Remedies for Dental Pain

Those who are avoiding corn know how hard it is to be faced with finding safe, effective pain relief.  The challenge is only compounded during the time you need it most...when you are in pain.  Dental pain, the kind that comes with a cracked tooth, lost filling or even a cavity, is no exception.  While prevention is, of course, the best remedy, once you are in pain there's no easy way to go back.  You can only move forward and find ways to function.

Kristyreal of Delphi forums recently posted an update about her holiday weekend struggle with dental issues.  She found that while a raw garlic clove is often recommended for cavity discomfort, clove paste and tea tree oil were more effective against the debilitating pain.

Please note that pain relief techniques are NOT a substitute for appropriate dental care.  You still need to see a dentist regularly, and you'll still need to get whatever causes the dental pain taken care of in a timely fashion.  But good pain relief will help you to function until your appointment.

For pain killers, Goodies Headache Powders with caffeine are considered corn free.  Corn free acetaminophen or ibuprofen can also be compounded at your local compounding pharmacy.

Not only do you have to deal with being unable to find a pain reliever for dental pain, you also have to worry about going to the dentist itself.

The gloves that they use at the dentist are often covered in corn starch. This is a bit of a major concern, seeing as they put those gloves in your mouth, and you're without a doubt going to swallow a bit of that corn starch.

For me, corn starch causes the most noticeable problems
