How do you address a toothache before you can get to your dentist? You could consider using aspirin—but please avoid putting the aspirin directly on your tooth. Doing so could actually damage your gums. Placing a cotton swab that’s been dipped in oil of clove on the sore tooth can also be helpful. Rinsing your mouth with a combination of warm water and salt can also help your toothache. Furthermore, a few foods have antibiotic properties. These foods include garlic and onions.
