8 Comments for the Tooth Ache Pain Home Remedy


I had this bad toothache that I didn't know how to get rid of. It is a broken molar that had been causing severe pain the last few days. So this is what got me relief within 10-15 minutes:

I rinsed my mouth with a mixture of warm water and plenty of salt for a couple of minutes. Then afterwards, because I didn't have a clove of garlic to bite down on a piece of it, I got the next best thing- Garlic Powder!

So what I did is dip my finger tip in some of the warm water & salt mixture and then into the garlic powder. I then proceeded with putting some of the Garlic Powder into the broken off area of the tooth and when I felt there was enough in it, I then started putting some of the garlic powder all around the tooth and gum area. And shortly afterwards the pain was COMPLETELY gone! It's going in an hour now- and still no pain!

After you apply the garlic to the tooth and gum area, give it 10-15 minutes to start working. I was almost tempted to sip water again and let it stand in the affected area to relief the pain because it wasn't immediate- which might have washed out the garlic powder, but I am glad I waited a few extra minutes now the pain IS GONE!!! And if it does coma back in a few hours- I'll repeat this procedure until this tooth can be extracted. Hope this gives you some relief.

I tried the rubbing of Garlic Powder on the area and it worked!!! I could sleep for the whole night. In the morning I called the dentist. Thank you so much. Of course now I have a craving for Pizza LOL


Thank you so much! Theres an aftertaste, but the garlic powder really worked!


works pretty nicely. the garlic powder burns for a bit but after that its all good.

I just tried this but had to use garlic salt instead since I have no powder. Here's to hoping it works. If not, trip to Walmart at two in the morning.
