I have 4 broken teeth, one with a jagged edge that presses against my other teeth and makes my whole mouth hurt. Im lucky to get three hours of sleep a night. For tooth remedy, I have mixed two cups (warm not hot) water with half a cup salt. burns but feels much better. table spoon Garlic powder, tablespoon black pepper and above has worked as well. (Also tastes kinda good, would taste awesome for marinade) Swish for 5 minutes then spit.
Vodka numbs but it goes away quick. (but youget a buzz which prevents you from thinking about it.)
Cloves... your mouth will get used to it within a couple hours and it wont work. (at least for me)
Bourbon or whiskey, WARM, works well.
