Acupressure Press gently but firmly on the sides of either index finger opposite the base of the fingernail.
Place two drops of clove essential oil on a sterile cotton ball; place the cotton ball against the aching tooth between the tooth and the cheek until the pain subsides.
Salt Combine two tablespoons of salt with one cup of boiling water; take a mouthful of water as hot as possible and slosh it around your mouth near the tooth; repeat as necessary.
Tea Suck on a teabag. Place it as close to the aching tooth as possible.
