Toothache Toothache refers to the pain associated with the teeth and jaws.  The common causes of a toothache are tooth decay (cavity), cracked or chipped teeth, infection, filling failure, exposed tooth roots, orthodontic procedures, tooth extraction, trauma, and gum disease.  Inflammation from any of these sources can put pressure on the nerve endings in the interior of the tooth resulting in mild to intense pain.

Dentists, as well as those familiar with home remedies, know that the simple Clove spice can be used for pain relief associated with the teeth and gums. Clove essential oil provides that same property with a much higher level of concentration. Other essential oils such as Protective Blend add significant help.  The video below summarizes a powerful protocol for relieving the pain of a toothache.
