Even though alcohol is not recommended by too many doctors, it can help in alleviating tooth pain.

Peppermint oil also helps in numbing tooth pain to a great extent.
8) Sea salt
Because of various kinds of sugars that are left in the mouth, bacteria develop into infection and produces lactic acid. The acid then starts corroding into enamel and teeth, which causes immense pain. Saltwater, which is one of the effective toothache home remedies, helps in getting over the pain and neutralize the lactic acid.
Cucumber is known for its soothing and cooling effect and thus works incredibly well as a toothache remedy. It also has hemostatic effects that curbs the blood flow to the pain affected area, which results in shrinking the ache.

While these home remedies may provide you temporary relief from toothache, you must visit your dentist on a regular basis to keep a check on your teeth and gum health. If the pain persists for a long period of time, your dentist would be best suited to tell you it’s underlying and correct cause and start the treatment accordingly
