    I've found that gargling with warm salt water can help alleviate tooth pain.

    Q:
    what is the purpose of the vodka?
    what does it do?
    it can't be for taste, because vodka usually has no taste....

    Thinking the vodka is used to kill the bacteria?

    I usually will take a small cloth and soak it with Listerine and place on the affected area.
    Leave it there especially for really bad toothaches at night to help me rest at night.

    i think the vodka is a carrier that preserves the solution. Listerine uses large amounts of alcohol for that purpose. I am a dental hygienist and I will tell you that oil of clove is used to combat infection. However if you have a chronic infection you should see a dentist, this rinse may minimize pain and inflammation for minor problems but chronic and acute infections should be dealt with by a medical professional. They are nothing to mess with. Even in modern times a tooth or gum infection can cause serious health risks
