In brief: See dentist

A terrible toothache is usually a sign of something very wrong with a tooth or teeth.
You really need to see a dentist. Do not wait. If there is an infection in a tooth (called an abcess) this can make you very sick unless you get it taken care of.

There are no home remedies or cures for rotten teeth.
No magic pills or rinses or mouthwashes. Toothaches need to be treated locally by a dentist, someone who has years of experience treating these conditions. The sooner you call the sooner you will feel better. Please don't delay, the pain may soon be unbearable.
