Toothache can be a suffering condition which may strike anyone at anytime regardless of age groups. Researches show that people would just pop a painkiller tablets or any oral gel in case of emergency needs. They fail to understand that these remedies may contain some synthetically derived active compound which may exhibit various adverse reactions or even allergies.

One of the natural alternatives for acute toothache is clove oil, which is an essential oil from the clove plant, originated from India and Indonesia, commercially used in food industry as spices or to enhance the aroma of certain food. Clove is well known among the scientist as Eugenia Aromaticum.

Researches show that clove oil has a significant activity towards analgesic as well as antibacterial activity and particularly helps in case of toothache instigated by bacteria.

What can you do in a pinch when you have toothache?

Clove oil can be found in most of the health food store, to use it dab a small amount of clove oil to a cotton swab and gently apply to the affected area. These would give a numb sensation on the affected area thus promote a temporary relief of the emerging pain.

Clove oil is not for everyone. It has a strong, sometimes unpleasant taste, if it is taken in large quantities, it may also have certain undesired side effects. However, it is widely used in dentistry before the advent of more commercial anesthetics. The active ingredient that shows the particular medicinal activity is eugenol, the same compound that gives the aroma of the plant.
