I haven't tried this, but I understand cayenne pepper will also help a painful tooth problem.
I've been wondering if the underlying problem could be helped with mixing necessary minerals and herbs into a dmso solution and applying it to the teeth. What? Are you going to trust a dentist or anyone in the medical industrial complex after this covid absolute f*ckup? That, and the mercury they've been putting in our teeth for generations? That and the flouride in the water? I'll try any other alternative at this point than the government sponsored death care. Powdered egg shells and dmso might inject necessary minerals into the bones. It might also kill the bacteria involved in creating cavities underneath.
Research up on dmso. No one talks about it, but it's extremely valuable and useful. They store frozen sperm and eggs in it. Testimonials also claim it can reverse gangrene. I think it might be a valuable option when it comes to oral health!
And permies would be able to make it on their homesteads. It's a wood byproduct.
I'd recommend a golden seal mouthwash (swish and spit out) several times a day. Also cloves, either a whole clove in that side of the mouth or brushing with cloves powder. Both help a lot to relieve the pain, and possibly help with the underlying cause of the pain.
If it is just a sensitive spot and not an abscess or something serious, swish green tea and hold it in your mouth, the the hot tea will wash away bacteria and natural fluoride in tea could help remineralize. Even better if you have hard water with high calcium.

My husband and I have had good success with plantain for toothache. Plantain is considered a "specific" for tooth pain in the herbal world. It's a drawing agent for all wounds, including pulling out splinters. And it's prominent leaf veins show it to be good for nerve pain specifically.
From this page:
"The cooling properties of Plantain will clear toxic heat and reduce inflammation as seen in allergies, eczema and even boils and abscesses. Matthew Wood has found Plantain to be particularly helpful in infections around the teeth where there may be abscess or root canal sepsis. He says 'It is a specific here and it will almost never fail to draw out the pus and stop the infection, sometimes even saving the tooth where it was thought to be lost'."
The way to use it is to harvest a leaf or two, wash if needed, and chew them up slightly to make a wad of it. Then stuff that wad in the cheek next to the tooth in question. You can replace the wad with a new one after several hours or half a day if more treatment is needed.
My husband caught a goat horn in the cheek one day that jostled a molar and plantain completely cleared the pain and inflammation in a couple of hours. I've heard of plaintain pulling out infection after a wisdom tooth removal as well.
Best thing about it is it grows literally everywhere. It's one of a couple of plants I kept whole in the freezer for winter use "just in case".
