Not many people know that various herbs can be used to relieve toothache. Welcome to the Ultimate Toothache Relief Home Remedy Guide. (Below there is a table of contents for your convenience.)
Natural herbs such as cloves, marigolds, tarragon, and yarrow can be used to help relieve pain until you go to the dentist. Over the years, different cultures have relied on herbs to help control toothache and provide temporary relief.
For example, Native Americans used the bark on the gums inside the walnut tree to relieve toothache. The walnut tree is found in North America and is also releated to the black walnut.
Walnut trees can be found along the river in well-drained soil, dense forests and even backyards. Once the tree matures, it can reach a height of 60 feet, the bark is light gray, and the leaves and fruits resemble black walnuts. The bark can be applied to the gums to help relieve toothache, and ejaculation can be found in Asia, Europe and North America.
It usually grows wild in grasslands, fields and open woods. Yarrow root contains narcotic effects. Applying fresh yarrow root to your teeth or gums will help relieve pain until you can make an appointment with a dentist and take care of it. Lilac is an evergreen tree that is native to tropical regions, however, now it can be found all over the world.
As many of you already know, the buds of dried lilac flowers contain medicine. When clove oil is used to treat toothache, it can relieve the pain almost immediately. If you compare cloves with other natural toothache treatments, you will find that cloves are the best.
Hundreds of years ago, herbal medicine was the only way to relieve pain. Dentists began to appear, even though they did not have the equipment or technology they currently have.
Although the tooth is extracted during this time, alcohol is usually used to numb the pain, and then the tooth is extracted with tweezers.
Over time, herbal medicine has proven to be very effective in stopping toothache. If you are interested in herbs or have any questions about them, please feel free to ask your dentist for their opinions.
The dentist knows the herbs well, and if you ask for it, they should be able to recommend natural remedies. Next time you experience a toothache, you should always remember that herbal remedies can be a great way to relieve the pain.

If cucumber is refrigerated, the effect is better, because its freshness is the catalyst for its calming effect.

- Pop some peppermint: Peppermint can work as an natural pain killer when applied to the gum area. It can hurt a little when first applied, but when the initial pain subsides it can provide a reduction in pain
- Toothpaste: For an acute toothache, wash out your mouth with warm water and a apply a dollop of toothpaste (sensitive) directly to the tooth cavity. Let it sit for a few minutes and then rinse. Try not to swallow too much toothpaste.

- Poultice for pain relief: Mixing 2 teaspoons of baking soda with half a teaspoon of garlic salt, table salt and black pepper. Add lemon juice to create a paste and apply to the area of pain to help reduce pain significantly.
- Salt Wash: Use table salt and warm water to make salt water. Swish it around your mouth and try to hold the saltwater over the affected tooth for as long as you can bear. Spit out and repeat 3-4 times
- Teabag compress: Dampen a teabag with hot water or heat a moistened teabag in the microwave for 10 seconds or until hot to touch but not burning. Place on affected area for pain relief.
- Chewing Gum: Get a packet of strong sugar-free peppermint or menthol chewing gum. Chew until it makes a paste and fill and plug the affected tooth. This can help by stopping air flow to the nerve and introducing peppermint to the affected area.
- Powdered Neem Leaf: Brushing your teeth with powdered neem leaf kill germs and can really help with inflammatory pain. Although bitter it’s worth fighting through for its beneficial effects. After brushing your teeth with the neem leaf you can swallow the juice from the powder to help clean your digestive tract.
