This might sound weird but it worked wounders for me...

Take a sip of cold coffee(no sugar or creamer)And let it sit on the tooth that hurts. It actually numbs it. Nothing else worked for me. I walked around the house with a cold cup of coffee for a few days. till i could get into the dentist. But it really works. Just let it sit on there for like 25 sec.

Hope it works as good for you as it did for me.

garlic to alleviate toothache suggest crushing it (to release the allicin) and placing it inside the mouth, next to the tooth. Sometimes the garlic is used in conjunction with cloves or clove oil.

The reason that garlic can be effective in relieving the pain of toothache is almost certainly the allicin - a compound with a powerful antibiotic effect that is released when garlic is crushed.

Remember that crushed garlic is very strong and can cause skin irritation - use with caution.

Garlic might provide some short term relief for the pain of tooth ache, however it should not be seen as an alternative for expert dental treatment.
