    Raw garlic is a great remedy if you can handle a few seconds of burning! Thinly slice a clove of garlic and place the sliver on the painful tooth or gum. Leave the garlic on the area for as long as possible (at first, this may only be possible for a few seconds.) Some people recommend chewing the clove up if you can stand the taste of raw garlic. Repeat a few times each day and you will be amazed at the pain relief. I recently did this home remedy for a gum abscess and it really worked. Best of luck to you!

    Create a saline solution of just salt and water and rinse your mouth out with it.

    a heating pad on low up against the cheek near the area of the affected tooth.  The warmth sometimes reduces the swelling and the ache tends to subside.

    Clove oil is really a good toothache reliever. Just take a few drops of clove oil on a small cotton ball and apply it gently on the aching tooth.

    Clove oil is easily available in medical or even general stores in India.
