66 Comments for the Tooth Ache Home Remedy


Alright. Felt this toothache coming on for a couple days but it got BAD tonight. I was swishing water over it, which would relieve it for a minute but then it would come back SUPER BAD. DON'T SWISH WATER OVER IT.

4 Ibuprofen didn't do anything.

The answer: GARLIC. After reading a few remedies on here, I went into the kitchen, peeled a clove of fresh garlic and chomped down. I got it into my saliva and swished that around, and I kid you not, ten seconds later the pain was COMPLETELY GONE. I seriously went for like a 6 - 8 on the pain scale to ZERO. The relief was unbelievable.

SO, I have to give a super big thank you to all you home remedy people, because I feel so damn good right now. And for anyone else looking for a remedy for toothache, just chomp some garlic and swish it over the tooth. Amazing!

Are you supposed to chew it up with the tooth thats hurting?


this worked for me too! SERIOUS tooth pain which is the worst pain ever. didnt have fresh garlic though. found garlic powder in the cupboard sprinkld liberal amounts onto sum bread and chewed and ate it. pain is gone! which is amazing because i took 6.5 percocet 10 mgs in the last six hours that havnt done crap to help the tooth pain.


I tried warm salt water, Ibuprofen, Tylenol, brushing, heating pad, the bread remedy, throat spray, and Orajel. NOTHING worked. I finally tried this, and it WORKED! Make sure you hold the garlic on the aching tooth for at least 5 min. Now I will say that it did not completely take the pain away but I went from a 9 to a 1-2 on the pain scale. Reduced it to a dull throb so I was able to sleep. WHEW!


My molar is half decayed and I'm scheduled to have it ripped out next month. It started hurting this week! I tried bread it helped a bit. The ice did not. Orgel helped during the day but not at night. Garlic helped instantly! No more pain!

Dental insurance please!

Totally worked. Burns, smells, but is a miracle little ingredient. Thank you endlessly.


I have problems with my teeth and tonight it reached an all time high. I know most of the tricks: salt water, aspirin, execedrin, aleve, heated rice socks. I am trying this garlic trick. Pain has become bearable but not completely gone. Still it has tamed the beast! I am gargling with garlic powder and salt water. Definitely took the edge off. Thank you!
