Cloves for toothache

Take two whole cloves, the kind you stick into oranges around holiday time, place them between the offending tooth and your cheek. You might want to chew them a little to release their juices. This is a centuries-old trick that really works.

Might damage the nerve Comments By: TipKing on 2004-07-16
It has been pointed out to me that prolonged use of Cloves and Oil of Cloves can damage the nerve of a tooth. However I have used it many times, it does take away the pain and that is all that matters for me
 
Excellent! Comments By: Josie on 2004-08-28
My tooth was killing me tonight. I'm scheduled for a root canal on Monday. I tried 2 cloves as suggested and I still can't believe the pain is gone. Thank you

My tooth ache was so unbearable I couldnt even close my mouth properly, the top teeth touching the bottom teeth was excrutiating! This worked within 10 minutes. Thank You!!!

I wish Comments By: James on 2007-02-11
Have got excrutiating pain with my wisdom teeth, put cloves in as suggested and was amazed that it never worked at all, i just got the foul taste in my mouth to add to the pain.
 
I don't know about you, but it worked for me!! Comments By: Amma on 2007-08-23
I have a cracked wisdom tooth, which is visibly infected. I remembered the suggestion of using cloves, but I didn't have whole cloves, so i used ground cloves. My gum feels PERFECT!!!! I am pregnant, so I have to be careful not to use it all the time, but I cannot get to the dentist for three more months-I am using the clove remedy at least once a week.
