Unfortunately, toothache is an all-too-familiar condition in the Western world, and it is usually the result of poor care of the teeth and gums.
Home remedies for Toothache
Oil of cloves or a dried clove rubbed on to the gum around an aching tooth will help soothe it. Try chewing a clove over the offending tooth for instant relief, or pack dried hops or fresh peppermint into the tooth. In Germany, dentists use a clove-based anaesthetic to eradicate the pain of toothache.
The use of asafoetida has been found useful in curing toothache. It should be pestled in lemon Juice and slightly heated. A cotton swab should be soaked in this lotion and placed in the cavity of the tooth. It will relieve pain quickly.
