It's 4 am and I have the worst open nerve toothache. I tried clove oil and it worked for all of five minutes. Now I am using garlic paste. I can now at least lay in bed without shooting pain up the side of my face to my temple. I will be keeping the paste right beside me for the rest of the morning. I highly recommend it.

I've got tooth/nerve ache. The pain is in the bottom front teeth. I tried using Orajel but it is not working.

I use paint thinners on my tooth when I have toothache. It sounds crazy but I had enough pain. So yes, the onion works also, and shoe polish also works, but the thinners burns your mouth but it numbs your mouth. And Grandpa powder also works.
