Cloves have the ability to stop an annoying toothache very quickly. They are rich in a substance called eugenol (between 70-90%) that has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and analgesic properties. Back in time, cloves were the first choice made by both patients and dentists, especially when dental instruments looked like torture utensils than something that helps to relieve pain.
If you’re facing with a horrible toothache, all that you have to do is to put 3-4 cloves in your mouth, wait to soak in the saliva then crush them between your teeth (the healthy teeth). Thus, the oil in them will be released. Place with your tongue the crushed cloves, near the hurting tooth.
You can also use clove essential oil, but not excessively because it becomes toxic to your body. Pregnant women aren’t allowed to use cloves.
