    Use Cloves for toothache which i have heard from my mother. Cloves are the best home remedies for toothache. You will definitely get some pain relief while you use Cloves.

    Clove serves as an excellent home remedy for toothache. Keep a clove in your mouth and suck it. You can even apply clove oil on the affected tooth.
    Lime is considered valuable in maintaining the health of teeth. Consume the juice of wheat grass, as it acts as a fabulous mouthwash in case of tooth decay.

    Oil of cloves is one of the favoured but sometimes it doesn't work for everyone - perhaps it depends on what is causing the toothache. You can also try rubbing a little whiskey on the gum and tooth area. The alcohol cleans the area as well as numbing it down - you can even take a swig if the pain is really bad. In addition to these, you can also try a warm compress, on your face at the affected side - but some people find that a cold compress works better. If you're in the UK then if you have TCP in the house this can work for toothache as well as mouth ulcers, cold sores, cuts, grazes and just about everything under the sun.

    Doing gargles with warm water with a pinch of salt mixed in it helps making tooth strong and helps in fresh breath too
