- Dab some clove oil directly on your bad tooth. Clove oil has remarkable bacteria-slaying properties—and it also has a numbing effect, which is why it’s a longtime folk remedy for toothache.
- If you don’t have any cloves, make a paste of powdered ginger and red (cayenne) pepper.
- Rinse your mouth with a tincture of myrrh
- Peppermint tea has a nice flavour and some numbing power.
- To help kill bacteria and relieve some discomfort, swish with a mouthful of 3% hydrogen peroxide solution
- Stir a teaspoon of salt into a glass of warm water and rinse for up to 30 seconds before you spit it out.
- Place a small ice cube in a plastic bag, wrap a thin cloth around the bag, and apply it to the aching tooth for about 15 minutes to numb the nerves.
- A warm, wet tea bag is a standard folk remedy for toothache that’s worth a try.
- Use a toothpaste that’s designated “for sensitive teeth.”
