There is a natural way of helping alleviate a toothache or a baby's sensitive gums and that is using fresh basil leaves. They smell great; they taste great; they are natural; and they leave your mouth feeling tingly. There really is no down side to this at all.
*Pick out a fresh piece of Basil and chew it in the area of your tooth ache or area of sensitivity. You will feel the tingling almost immediately. It will only be effective temporarily so if you are having chronic dental issues, you need to see your dentist as soon as possible to avoid further dental/medical issues.
