It can be used but the effect is shortlived. Clove oil should not be used on a regular basis, as a substance naturally found in cloves, called eugenol, is known to cause cancer.

How can you cure tooth ache?

The first thing to do is to try remove some of the harmful bacteria and infections from the gum and teeth. Rinse you mouth with warm salty water regularly to do this. Try not to use any harsh mouthwashes. This will provide some toothache relief and ensure your mouth is clean. If you think food is stuck between your teeth gently floss your teeth. Wheatgrass can also help to remove harmful bacteria and relieve toothaches. For a longer lasting pain relief you could you use paracetamol or ibuprofen (like Nurofen), but at the toothache relief guide we suggest using a natural toothache home remedy such as clove oil, garlic, peppermint or an activate charcoal compress. Clove oil has been used for toothache relief for thousands of years, it is anti-bacterial and provides strong pain relief. Soak a cotton wool ball with a couple of drops of pure clove oil mixed with some olive oil or grind a single clove and apply the powder to the area. You should feel some toothache relief very soon. You can re-apply the clove oil when the pain returns Another great way to get toothache relief is to use peppermint. Peppermint is a great natural painkiller and can remove unwanted bacteria. Either make a fresh peppermint tea or apply dried leaves to the infected area If all else fails you may need a cavity filling or even the tooth in question removed. Apparantly ginger may help in some way, try applying some ginger root to your teeth but don't bite it.
