Home Remedies for Toothache

Toothaches can vary greatly, from mild soreness to an unbearable throbbing pain in your teeth or around your jaws. Some of the main causes of toothaches are cavities, an infection, an exposed tooth root, a cracked tooth, gum disease, a loose filling, or jaw joint disorder.

Toothache

A toothache (see the above diagram) happens when the central region of the tooth, known as the pulp, becomes irritated or inflamed. The pulp consists of several nerve endings that are highly sensitive. Pulp can become inflamed or irritated for many reasons, some of which are noted above.

If you have toothache, it is best to seek immediate advice from a dentist before the problem becomes worse. But if you are not able to make it to the dentist, you can try some natural remedies to relieve the pain.

Here are the top 10 home remedies for toothaches.

(Out of the 10, we have covered 3 highly effective home remedies in this video as well.)

1. Pepper and Salt

Salt mixed with pepper can be of great use when a tooth becomes extremely sensitive.

toothache home remedy salt pepper

  1. Mix equal amounts of pepper and common salt with a few drops of water to form a paste.
  2. Apply the paste directly on the affected tooth and allow it to sit for a few minutes.
  3. Do this daily for several days.

2. Garlic

Use of garlic can also give immense relief from toothache. Garlic has antibiotic and other medicinal properties that can be very effective in slowing down bacterial effects.

  1. Mix a crushed garlic clove (or garlic powder) with some table salt or black salt and apply it directly on the affected tooth to alleviate the pain. If you prefer, you can chew one or two cloves of garlic to get relief.
  2. Repeat this natural treatment for a few days.

3. Cloves

No home remedy is better for toothaches than cloves. Cloves have anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antioxidant and anesthetic properties that help alleviate tooth pain and fight infection.

tooth pain cure using cloves

  • Grind two cloves. Mix in a little olive oil or any vegetable oil and apply on the affected tooth.
  • Dab a cotton ball in clove oil and rub it directly on the sore tooth. Alternatively, you can mix a few drops of clove oil in half a glass of water and use it as a mouth rinse.

4. Onion

Onions have antiseptic and antimicrobial properties that can control a toothache. It can provide relief from pain by killing the germs causing an infection.

  • At the first sign of a toothache, chew raw onion for a few minutes to relieve pain.
  • If you are not able to chew it, place a piece of raw onion directly on the bad tooth or gum.

5. Asafetida

Dental problems such as toothaches and bleeding gums can be treated at home with the use of asafetida.

  • Simply add a pinch of powdered asafetida to lemon juice and then warm it slightly. Use a cotton pad to apply the solution on the affected area. This will give you quick relief from the pain.
  • Alternatively, asafetida fried in clarified butter can be put in the tooth cavity for instant relief.

6. Warm Salt Water

A simple glass of warm salt water can help treat a toothache. Mix half a spoon of common salt in a glass of very warm water and use it to rinse your mouth thoroughly. When the solution comes in contact with the affected tooth, it will extract fluid from the tissue and reduce swelling on the nerves. This mouthwash will also fight bacteria that cause infection.

  2. I have found that for those who are old enough to legally buy alcohol then swishing your mouth out with wild turkey wisely or any dark liquor one the tooth that is infected is a quick and easy relief.

    I used my ohmibod on the third setting and put it on the side of my face where it hurts for a minute or hum while my teeth are lightly clenched and it seems to help. Cloves work well for me, however when I have no cloves I resort to my own methods. Odd but it works. :)

    My Grandmother and Mother as well taught us as young children in Belgium to go outside and break off a twig of the willow tree and chew on that until it was a paste in our mouth and apply that to our sore teeth. It worked.I am 66 and have most of my teeth.

  17. Thank you for the post. When you go to the dentist for dry socket, they literally apply root of clove. Taking some clove powder and placing it on my tooth helped immensely. However, my dental appointment is not soon enough.

    Reply
    • Dentists, like doctors, want money, and if people find cheap, easy and *healthy* ways to reduce the time at said dentist, then that dentist loses money. I’m shocked that so many people actually trust people who seek to make a business off of our pain and suffering? Their motive is for you to go back to them, not seek easy, cheap remedies that make you more independent from them. lol!

      Same thing with the “medical” industry: They don’t want us finding natural cures to diseases. They want us buying their patented products so it makes them money.

      Anyway, I’ve tried the garlic (chewed on it and lodged inside my aching tooth) and it relieved the pain.

      Reply
      • Not true. The tooth usually needs treatment for a cavity or abscess. We’re not it to make money off people suffering. Most people wait too long to have it checked then the problem starts and they want it taken care IMMEDIATELY. Let’s see who you call when the pain returns.

    • They do, they just want to charge big bucks for the pain meds….or in personal experience, tell you to deal with it.

  55. Great remedies! I would like to suggest caution on the cloves though! While it definitely works the best, the oil is extremely volatile! A drop left on some plastics will melt the plastic! Prolonged use could damage the gums! Great for use in an emergency, it should be used sparingly, and not for more than a few applications. Then seek help from a dentist, if at all possible.

  82. I have had many toothaches in my time and the best pain killer to take is mersyndol although you cannot use whilst driving, oral eze works well and alcohol straight onto the nerve is also effective. there is a tooth putty on the market that fixes your tooth until you can get to the dentist but for it to work you must follow the instructions to a tea and bite down to mold into place though not all chemists stoke it so have to ask them. i believe it is a temp filling mixture of some sort, very effective. also before treating any toothache with pain killers, grab a toothpick and remove anything lodged in the tooth first otherwise the medicine will not be as effective as it should. a warm cloth placed from the jaw to the ear will temp relieve the pain in that area also

  122. As I write this comment I’m going thru some severe toothache . Just by reading all these positive comments I can’t wait to get off from work and try at least one of the alternatives that they have offered. We do have to keep in mind that these remedies are great but in the long run they relieve the pain, for as long as it will take us to get to a dentist. Honestly we prefer the extraction rather than go thru that horrible by the second pain .

  135. Wow. My husband woke up in the middle of the night with severe tooth pain. I thought I was going to have to take him to the ER although there isn’t much he can take because he has an ulcer. Orajel was doing nothing for him. Tried the salt and pepper paste and almost instantly, his pain subsided. Never would have imagined it.

  139. Brilliant, very helpful tips. Still this is just a temporary solution. It is still better to consult your dentist to find the cause of the toothache. It is also recommended to visit your dentist regularly.

  141. So I’ve been going through. Tried salt and pepper no luck. Tried garlic and no luck! Was thinking nothing would work… ONION! that’s the answer. Cut up and onion and put it around the tooth. Too painful to bite. But after a little while its really really helped! I’m over the moon right now. Thank you! … And it doesn’t taste as bad as I thought!!

  159. Hello, thank you for this post. I have been in excruciating pain for about a week since I had a filling put in recently. By accident I discovered that swishing almond milk in my mouth literally gives me instant and complete relief. Funny cause I thought it was the chips ahoy that I ate with it at first and ended up eating the whole bag before I realized it was the almond milk. I hope these other cures will give me longer lasting affects as the almond milk seems to be temporary and I have to keep doing it.

  163. I am in terrible pain and don’t have dental insurance anymore, so I decided to look in the Internet for alternative pain relievers since I take all kinds of pain medications for my Fibromyalgia, Rheumatoid Arthritis and Osteoarthritis and they just aleviate the pain some but it doesn’t go all together and is the type of toothache that reaches your ear and you end up with tooth and ear pain.
    I am writing all these home remedies down in a note book an creat some type of home remedies journal because these are recipes that past down from our great grandmothers and this generation don’t bother to learn from their elders. My grandmother was a very wise woman with lots of home remedies and unfortunately she past when I was too young to appreciate her knowledge.

  167. Thanks! I Used minced garlic from a jar, mixed it w/ salt & pepper, applied with cotton swab and it worked. I’ll try salt water rinse while it’s numbed out. Better than OTC remedies, didn’t cost a dime, and no trip to the store. Thanks Again.

  181. Still there is one best solution – try COCONUT OIL – you will all be amazed with the therapeutic effect – sip half a teaspoon of oil ( I bought mine from the local Pharmacy) and using the tongue push the oil into the affected tooth or area – within a few minutes the pain will be gone !! – repeat at reasonable intervals especially after a meal when the tooth will have been disturbed.
