plantain root, chewed with the affected tooth, will ease a toothache immediately, and also helps to draw out any bacteria and ease inflammation. plantain is a common weed that you can find in your own backyard. be sure to wash thoroughly before using. it's best to spit out your saliva when chewing the root, but it is completely safe if swallowed. it tends to have a spicy flavor, but is not at all strong or unpleasant. i have tried nearly everything from orajel to narcotic pain meds, and nothing has helped to the extent of this simple plant.
