Toothache Home Remedies

The best toothache home remedies are cheap, easy to make, and super effective. Learn how to stop a toothache using the most natural remedies.

Toothaches are one common problem that can be a big pain- literally. It can be very difficult to eat, drink and even breathe on a cold day when one tooth hurts badly. The good news is that there are some things you can do at home to help.


Cut a single clove of garlic in half, and place that half over the tooth that hurts. Garlic usually works very quickly at relieving pains, so you should begin to feel better soon after.


Wheatgrass is an effective natural remedy for toothache. For best results you should use the juice as a mouthwash regularly.

Hydrogen Peroxide

Hydrogen peroxide is very effective at killing germs, and will kill any infection that causes mouth pain. Either use this liquid as a mouthwash or soak a cotton ball in it and hold against tooth and gum.

Tea Tree Oil

If you have an infection, tea tree oil is one of the best essential oils you can use to treat it. Tea tree is a very potent anti-microbial and anti-bacterial agent that cures just about anything. I once had a wisdom tooth become severely infected, only to be told I couldn't get an appointment for another week. I applied Tea Tree Oil twice daily and was able to kill the infection completely.


Onion is also effective at killing germs, and will help with an infection. Cut a piece of fresh onion and bite it between your teeth, touching the tooth that hurts. The pain should ease quickly. Bite it again to release more juice if the pain comes back.

These toothache home remedies are simple and cheap ways to stop the pain and infections from spreading. If you have a severe toothache, however, you should see a dentist quickly to prevent further problems.
