Hi there

  • Salt water rinse. Mix 1 teaspoon of salt in a glass of warm water and use it as a mouthwash to help reduce inflammation and pain.
  • Clove oil. Clove oil contains eugenol, which has been found to have strong pain-relieving properties. Place a small amount of clove oil on a cotton swab and apply it to the affected tooth and gum.

Hi @jadewilliamsccode

Try these:

Garlic: Garlic has natural antibacterial properties that can help alleviate tooth and gum pain. Crush a clove of garlic, mix it with a pinch of salt, and apply the mixture directly to the affected area.
Tea bags: Moisten a tea bag (preferably black tea) in warm water, and then place it on the painful area. The tannins in tea can have a soothing effect on the gums and help reduce pain.
Guava leaves: Chew on fresh guava leaves or apply a paste of crushed guava leaves to the affected area. They have anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties that can provide relief.
