While at work one night I got a mild toothache from a wisdom tooth that was infected on the top part of my mouth. Desperate I combed a few websites about natural home remedies as aspirin nor ibuprofen made a dent in the ache. Using some of the common remedies I saw I combined baking soda, garlic salt, table salt, pepper and lemon juice to make a grainy paste. I used a q-tip to apply it to the tooth and gum. NO PAIN for hours! I also used an ice pack to my cheek whenever possible. I made enough to keep on hand for touch ups until I can get to the dentist. It really made a difference in the pain level! It dropped from a level of 6-8 to a level 1.
