• The best remedy for temporary relief of tooth aches is clove oil. I've even had several dentists recommend it. (The stuff they swab in your mouth to deaden it before they give you a shot is made from clove oil.) Most full-line pharmacies carry small bottles of clove oil. Just dab it on and around the aching tooth with a finger or a q-tip. If you can't get clove oil, putting a couple of whole cloves inside your cheek by the sore tooth and leaving them there for a while will help, but not as well as the clove oil. As with all home remedies, if any irritation develops or the condition continues, seek competant medical assistance.
  • I have used tea tree oil by dabbing it on the sore area. It seemed to work fairly well.
  • This is highly irresponsible of me I realise- BUT a large whisky with lots of ice. Swish it around a little before you swallow. Its the only thing that works for me.
  • A mixture of mashed garlic and clove applied to and around the gumline are said to help relieve some swelling and pain - and cold compresses on the tooth until you can see a dentist.
  • Rinsing your mouth out with warm water mixed with salt usually helps for a short period of time.
  • Clove oil is terrific. Or if you don't have any, try chewing some whole cloves. IT will also freshen your breath real nice:-)
  • When I was a kid with a toothache my parents would put whiskey on it, it would really work, it dulls the pain.
  • # Home remedy for toothache: Dip a cotton wool or a q-tip with a bit of brandy/ arrack/ cognac, put on the aching tooth. # Cook asparagus root in wine, cool put in the mouth for a few minutes and spit out, can also use asparagus juice with no wine. # Dip q- tips in baking soda and apply on the tooth and around it. # Drink tea or milk with honey. # Wrap black pepper seeds in a thin fabric and put on the aching tooth. # Natural treatment for toothache: Dip a q-tip in marjoram oil and put on the aching tooth. # Melt 1 teaspoon of baking soda in a glass of water and use as a mouth wash. # Freeze marbles in the freezer and apply on the aching tooth.
  • Take some Ibprofen and use Orajel it will work for a wile,but you really need to see a dentist,it will get worse before it will get better.I think that is the worst kind of pain.I hate tooth aches.
  • I agree with the clove oil. For toothache cause by an abcess, a salt pack placed on the gum will draw the infection out, enough to reduce the swelling and take some of the pressure off the nerves. A pack made from dry mustard works also. This is for temporary relief, doesn't work right away, and should be used only to give some measure of relief until you can get to a dentist.
  • 6-28-2017 Calcium is nature's pain controller. When I had a toothache I took a day's dose of calcium three times a day and that controlled the pain so well that I sort of forgot I needed to see a dentist to get it fixed. The tooth eventually had to be pulled. Don't you make that mistake!
