I woke up the other night with a throbbing pain in my mouth and it didn't go the whole of the next day, so after work I went and bought some clove oil. I didn't mind the taste and honestly it worked wonders – the pain was gone really quickly. Thanks for posting this really did help me.

Clove oil actually really helped get rid of my tooth ache. For two days, I've been ignoring the throbbing sensation, then came across this tip, tried it, and it works! It's definitely got a strong taste but who cares, it works!

Have your tried this tip?
