Garlic is a very popular remedy that is traditionally used to treat toothache. Even though it can be unpleasant due to its strong smell, it has good features that help to quickly combat pain and even prevent the worsening of any infection that may be in the affected area. [2]

To use garlic, you can cut a clove of garlic in half and apply it with the cut part directly against the gum of the affected teeth, or place the clove over the sore tooth and chew the garlic. To remove the strong smell of garlic when you are done, you can wash your teeth or rinse with an elixir, for example.
