God bless the person on here that suggested raw garlic as a way to INSTANTLY stop a wicked tooth ache. I had a monster of a tooth ach for 4 days. On the 4th night I could not fall asleep. I have been taking some Goldenseal herb via capsules for infection. On the 4th night I made a poultice of Goldenseal powder plus (fresh) powdered cloves plus 2 drops of clove oil and a few drops of water to make a paste. I forced this poultice material into the openings around the aching tooth. This had helped for earlier days but not on the 4th night. So I took a tylenol 3 with codeine. Couldn't fall asleep. So I took 2 more reg. 500mg tylenol. Couldn't fall asleep. Took More tylenol and 2 500mg aspirin. No sleep.
So I got up and crushed a large clove of garlic through a little garlic press. This yielded quite a bit of garlic juice that I dripped onto a 1.5' by 1.5' piece of gauze pad. I rolled up the garlic saturated gauze to make a 3/8' wide strip or pad. I shoved this pad up under my lip to the sore area. WOHA!
FIRE! I was shocked at the burning but I left it in place as long as I could stand. Maybe 5-7 seconds! But I noticed that the pain was KILLED INSTANTLY! I went to bed and fell a sleep INSTANTLY! (it was 5 am by this time) The next day at noon the pain has not shown its ugly face. The swelling is much reduced. I can touch and wash my face with no pain at all. I can even push hard on the cheek area and easily take the little bit of pain that results. THANKS AGAIN TO THE ONE THAT SUGGESTED GARLIC FOR TOOTH ACHE. And thank GOD for the NATURAL Medicine, garlic.
P.S. Note that garlic must be CRUSHED AND MINCED AND MASHED (or chewed) to release its benefits. Very important for good results.

Thank you for this remedy. I made a paste with garlic and glove powder that's all I had in the cupboard. The initial burning was horrid but I am now pain free it is instant pain relief.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. Holiday weekend here in Sydney, Saturday late night, woke with monumental toothache. Between then and now Sunday night, have tried everything including 2 commercial products - had to rinse these off as they only made ache worse, cold water (as others have said works for a minute), whisky, disprin, brushing teeth. In desperation looked up home remedies and here I am. The first few remedies only brought more despair as I don't have any cloves or essential oil or others mentioned. Then saw garlic - and yes I do have that. Was sceptical but what the hell will give anything a try at this stage. Thankfully had a jar of minced garlic in the fridge, so placed some on the tooth itself and the sore gums all over the right side of my mouth. After a couple of minutes did a quick rinse, so much better, but still a little sensitive, so repeated the process. Now 10 minutes later - virtually pain free, and hoping for some sleep finally. Alleluia

Wow, this garlic thing really did work. I was on the verge of tears since pain medication wasn't working and I was super tired after not sleeping really for the past few days. So I got desperate and googled this and I'm so glad I did. This really freakin worked and the garlic really did burn while in there but totally worth it to get a good nights sleeps. Thanks so much for posting this remedy.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I have crushed garlic rolled in a cotton swab sitting on my teeth right now and it's the only thing that's been relieving some of the pain. I'm getting the tooth extracted this afternoon. Now I know not to keep cold water on my tooth, but to use garlic instead.

Thank you for the wonderful information! Was on day 3of horrible pain. Got the cayenne pepper and mixed it with a little water to make a paste. Used q-tip to apply to the pAinful tooth. Also took a clove of garlic and placed it between my tooth and gum. Instant relief!
