Clove is another great natural remedy that has been used to treat toothaches throughout history. Cloves contain a compound called eugenol, which is a natural antiseptic and anesthetic so they are absolutely fantastic at numbing pain.
Clove also has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties which make it a great remedy to fight off tooth and gum infections.
To use clove to relieve toothache, either soak a cotton pad with clove oil and apply to the affected area or gently chew on a clove for up to 30 minutes to release the healing juices.

Like cloves, peppermint has numbing properties that help to relieve the pain of toothache and soothe sensitive gums. Its high menthol content gives peppermint the cool, minty fresh flavor as well as providing a calming and soothing effect for toothache. Peppermint is also believed to inhibit certain strains of bacteria responsible for causing gum disease.
To use a peppermint tea bag to relieve toothache, place a warm peppermint tea bag onto the affected area until you feel the pain lessen.
