Clove oil: This is by far the best home remedy if one is suffering from toothache as it has anti-microbial properties. So, applying a little clove oil on the decayed tooth provides relief from tooth pain.

Salt water: Take a glass of warm water and add a pinch of salt into it. Now, rinse your mouth thoroughly with it and you would notice instant relief as it reduces pain and swelling on the nerves.
