    What is the best way to cure toothaches?

    the best and most permanent way is to go visit your dentist and let him do his stuff. To deaden the pain, use an anti-inflammatory drug such as ibuprofen or voltarol.
    Don't under any circumstances put anything warm on your face - this will only make your blood vessels expand and help the nerves work better in providing the pain!!

    OOOhh greatest of sympathies and much empathy - do get it sorted properly soon

    I agree with pauline. Seeing a dentist is the best solution. However that is not always possible. I actually did a whole hub on 5 natural remedies for a tooth ache. Garlic is just one thing that can help fight the pain and kill infection if there is one present.

    Depends on the source of the toothache, but having a good attitude always helps. Healing is as much mental as physical.

      Not when there is nerve involvement from a bad tooth InterestCaptured. It's  a pain that can't be got at and that's the frightening bit. I'm with you on the good attitude front, but for me, toothache needs sorting properly, asap

      What do you mean "not when there is nerve involvement"? I would say it is still pertinent in that case to have a positive mental condition in order to heal properly

    If you can't get to the dentist right away, oil of cloves applied close to the offending tooth would give you temporary relief. After the dentist has done what needs to be done, you should really take a long honest look at your diet (what you eat and drink on a day-to-day basis) and chances are you need to clean it up. Cut down on the junk, as that's what caused the pain in the first place (nothing like sugar to cause cavities), and strengthen your teeth with good whole foods, esp. ones high in calcium and Vitamin D.

    Here's a hub I wrote about what to eat for strong teeth and bones: http://visionandfocus.hubpages.com/hub/ … a-Lifetime
