    These home remedies are terrific. I have used several on various occasions. I distinctly remember one occasion (because I was in so much pain), while I was out of town for a couple of days. I did not want to go to a strange dentist.
    I went to a local supermarket and bought whole cloves. Most supermarkets carry them.
    I rubbed the whole clove along the gum and the tooth and in minutes my toothache was gone. What a life saver
