Things You'll Need
  • Clove oil
  • Cotton swabs
Tips

1. Dip cotton swab into clove oil bottle and remove, wiping any excess oil off on the inside neck of bottle. Clove oil has a strong aroma so don't be surprised if it smells pungent. Replace cap to clove oil.

2. Apply dipped cotton swab directly onto tooth that hurts. The clove oil will slowly enter the tooth through any cracks or missing fillings and will travel to the nerve. Almost immediately you will feel the clove oil start numbing the pain. A dry, hot feeling may occur after application but this will not have a lasting effect.

3. Reapply clove oil treatment by following Steps 1 and 2 as soon as the pain starts coming back. Book an appointment with your dentist as soon as it is convenient as clove oil is supposed to be a temporary measure to relieve toothache pain and not a permanent "fix."
