WARNING: If you find these home remedies you're trying aren't working, it's probably because you are using the wrong one your aching tooth needs. It's best to find out what exactly is causing your ailment before trying these remedies. If you have an infection DO NOT use ice or cold water methods. Cold accelerates bacteria growth. If you have a wisdom tooth coming in, sadly there isn't much you can do but take numbing drugs. However, here are a few natural remedies to relieve the pain.
1. Place peppermint leaves around the tooth for 15-30 minutes
2. Chewing garlic and salt
3. Clove oil on your gums and tooth is your best bet
4. placing a thick cold cucumber around the tooth for 20-30 minutes
5. Sucking on ice cubes or holding it against your jaw
6. Gargling warm salt water to soothe the inflamed gum tissue.

Best of luck!

Thank you very much for the comprehensive information, particularly about bacteria. I thought that cold, such as cold weather, would actually kill bacteria, but that certainly answers a lot of questions for me.

My wisdom teeth are coming in, most painful thing every. I've been taking aspirin which has helped a lot about two pills every 5 hours or so takes the pain from 100% to about 5%
I also tried the vanilla extract which took the pain down from 100% to about 70%
Thanks for all your help.
Just a word of advice, dont put off getting your wisdom teeth removed like I did, the pain you get from putting it off is much worse then the surgery itself.
