Is rinsing any kind of Listerine, like cool mint, can help reduce my toothache?

    There are many causes of toothache. It may not necessarily be cavity. It could be sensitive teeth or excessive night grinding of teeth -- nightguard would help. Again there are many causes.

    Only a dentist can find true cause.

    Some ibuprofen or Tylenol may help. Mouthwash is unlikely to help.

    Nope. Try oil of clove.

    No, mouthwash cannot enter the enamel of a tooth,

    I've never heard of that helping, if it is an infection gargling with brine every 4 hours may help.

    The only other way I know of other than visiting the dentist is brandy or whisky. Soak a small piece of clothl with the alcohol and wrap it around the affected tooth or again gargle with the booze, numb the affected area.

    No, not at all.
