I don't have a clue.
But i wouldn't mess around with home remedies in these cases. Dental abscess, a common cause of tooth pain, can be very serious if left untreated. The infection can spread up into the brain and bad things happen. Get it checked out by a dentist, then you can take care of things simply if possible.

In brief: Remedy
A remedy is something that cures or relieves a disease or bodily disorder; a healing medicine, application, or treatment.
Other than OTC pain meds, there are no DIY treatments to replace proper dental care. Please call a dentist for an appointment. In addition, the pain meds do not solve your problem, they just prolong your agony.

In brief: Pain Treatment.
A persistent toothache needs to be evaluated by an appropriately trained provider. Untreated it can potentially lead to more serious conditions.
