Best solution see your dentist asap, your probably need further assistance with an antibiotic. Good luck Dr C
Turmeric can reduce inflammation so it can reduce a tooth ache but tooth pain is generally a infection so likely it will require much more to get corrected.
Unfortunately, it cannot. It is a great spice with a lot of benefits when used correctly.

Sorry to hear about your toothache. Turmeric does have natural anti-inflammatory properties. A lot of toothaches are caused by inflammation so it generally will take the edge off, but only has a temporary relief to get you to a doctor to see what the cause of the inflammation is.
Hope you feel better soon!

Turmeric has known anti inflammatory properties but works best in low doses over a long time. A toothache is a rather acute source of pain so I would suggest seeing your dentist instead.

There is no evidence based documentation that Turmeric will relieve a toothache.
