NATURAL remedies for toothache?

I HAVE been to the dentist, and he could not find out why my tooth would be hurting, so I guess I’ve just got to find a way to put up with the pain. Does anyone have any natural remedies? Thanks in advance!
I don’t eat sugar, so "laying off the sweets" isn’t the problem. Just to let anyone interested know before they answer.

  • it is possible to treat it with a simple home remedy.

    Garlic:

    One of the most familiar home remedy ingredients, garlic has been used to relieve tooth pain for thousands of years. When crushed, the plant releases something called allicin, which is an antifungal and antibiotic compound. If the toothache is the result of an infection, which many are, there is a good chance that garlic will be able to destroy or at least slow down the bacteria. Of course, garlic alone will not be able to prevent future deterioration of the tooth.

    Garlic cloves should be ground up and mixed with oil and/or salt. The mixture can then be applied directly to the affected tooth. Remember that ground up or crushed garlic is very power and it may cause minor skin irritation if it is overused.

    Echinacea:

    Though the research has not proven it, many people believe that Echinacea is a powerful immunostimulator, which means that it can buoy the immune system and prevent common infections. Once again, if the toothache is caused by an infection, it is possible that Echinacea could provide relief or prevent the pain altogether. The easiest way to get the benefits of the herb is to buy a box of organic Echinacea tea at your local supermarket or health food store. Unlike garlic, Echinacea can be used as often as needed, since it will not irritate the gums or skin.

    Saline Water:

    Most of the world is made up of saline or salt water. Simply add a teaspoon of regular table salt to a glass of water and mix it until it has completely dissolved. The water should then be gargled for twenty or thirty second. Yes, it will leave a bad taste in your mouth, but salt can reduce painful swelling. The salt concentration can be increased as needed.

  • I thought I had a toothache and it wasn’t it was a sinus pain hitting my tooth nerve so figure if it is that, if so do a saline nasal wash.
