Toothache tends to be worse at night because the brain has fewer activities bothering it at night. When our mind is not very active, the senses are very sensitive, and a normal pain during the days turns to be very painful at night.
Garlic contains a compound known as Allicin, which fights bacteria and can relieve toothache at night.

Note that these remedies are not long term solutions to your toothache; they only provide relief as you wait to see a dentist.
