Rinse your mouth with a tincture of myrrh.  The astringent effects help with inflammation, and myrrh offers the added benefit of killing bacteria.

To help kill bacteria and relieve some discomfort, swish with a mouthful of 3% hydrogen peroxide solution. This can provide temporary relief if the toothache is accompanied by fever and a foul taste in the mouth (both are signs of infection), but like other toothache remedies, it’s only a stopgap measure until you see your dentist and get the source of infection cleared up. 
Salt water cleanses the area around the tooth and draws out some of the fluid that causes swelling.
