How To Cure A Toothache

How to Cure a Toothache - Use a popular brand of toothpaste formulated specifically for sensitive teeth. Use it as a paste and apply to the aching tooth. 

Cover with a 1x1 inch folded piece of kleenex (or anything else that might work well) and keep it there folded in half (half against back of tooth and half against front), trying not to spread the toothpaste beyond the tooth itself as the toothpaste can cause gums to "peel" if on too long. Let the kleenex-covered toothpaste sit on affected tooth for about ten minutes. Remove kleenex. No need to rinse, but you can if you prefer to.
