Oil Pulling Therapy for a Tooth Abscess
Holistic Treatment Instructions:
- You'll Need: Sesame or Sunflower Oil - 1 Tablespoon
The ancient practice of oil pulling from the Ayurvedic tradition is an increasingly popular therapy for its ability to pull toxins out of the body. It may not relieve dental pain immediately, but it can address the abscess within a few days of repeated use.
Before brushing your teeth and with an empty stomach, take one Tbsp of oil into your mouth and swish it around for 10-20 minutes until the oil has turned milky white. Then spit out. Food oils of any kind are generally fine, but sesame and sunflower oils are the most popular.
CAUTION! A tooth abscess can quickly develop into an even more serious health condition. If not dealt with effectively, an abscess can spread its infection to the blood, heart, or brain causing serious harm and in some cases death. A dentist or doctor's care may be advisable even at the first appearance of the tooth abscess.
[YEA] 01/02/2007: Diane from Philadelphia, PA: "I have been oil pulling two times a day for about a month now and notice a vast improvement in my gums. I have had 2 root canals and at my last dental visit, they wanted to do a 3rd root canal to correct the previous two. Needless to say, I had severe gum pain and an abscess that caused me excruciating pain. My jaw would swell up to the size of chipmunk's. I was in constant pain. I started oil pulling with sunflower oil and notice that my pain had decreased in intensity by day 3. Within 7 days, I had no pain and my abscess was completely gone. I ran out of sunflower oil and am now using extra virgin coconut oil. My gums are a healthy pink--they are no longer receding. I had a loosened tooth that really needed to be pulled but the gums have tightened around the tooth and it is no longer loose. My skin feels softer and I'm no longer plagued with earaches. I tried oil pulling with Olive Oil but could not stand the taste. Once I finish up my coconut oil, I will go back to sunflower (it is a better tasting oil)."Replies
07/27/2013: Jaqueda from Illinois replies: "What exactly is oil pulling? I just discovered the abscess. I'm not in pain but would like to start oil pulling before the pain starts. I only have organic virgin coconut oil. Please help. Thanx"
[YEA] 12/12/2006: John from Daly City, CA: "Today is Tuesday. Last Friday night and Saturday morning I had increasing pain at the root of tooth #12, upper behind canine tooth. It was getting worse. I found your web page and read about oil pulling with sesame or sunflower seed oil. Saturday morning I bought 8 ounces of sesame oil and started pulling 1 table spoon in the morning and 1 tablespoon at night. Same on Sunday, and Monday. The result was immediate. The first result cut the pain in half, the in half again, and now I can feel only a little discomfort at the root of the tooth. I do not know how this works, but am grateful that it does!"
[YEA] 12/05/2006: Kimba from Brooklyn, NY: "re: Oil Pulling -- 3 months ago, I had a really bad infection in my mouth, so painful that I could not sleep. Orajel helped, but temporarily. I came across this website and decided to give it a try. When I woke up the next day, the pain was gone! No soreness, nothing. Not even a twinge. I stopped doing it for a couple of weeks, and all my health problems came back. Abnormal discharge, candida, and other female issues. I'm doing this again in the hopes that my issues will go away for good. Will keep you all updated on my progress."Replies
[YEA] 08/28/2009: Anonymous from Mccomb, Mississippi replies: "I have been having trouble with my teeth hurting for some time now, the extreme sensitivity has been for maybe 2-3 weeks. I have been brushing my teeth with baking soda. I was afraid that maybe my mouth was becoming too alcalyne, so I started rinsing with vinegar, diluted in water. That helped a little bit.
The last several nights, I was having a lot of trouble sleeping, I'd wake up in terrible pain. My teeth would be shooting pain all in my head and mouth. Last night, I got up and went to the bathroom in the middle of the night, trying to figure out what to do for it. I walked past a bottle of oil I had sitting there. I believe that God told me to take some of that oil and pull it, so I did. I didn't know that oil could help it, but I was ready to try about anything. I had heard of oil pulling, and had tried it for other things, but not that.
I don't know what all kind of oil I have in that mix. I make up mixes for various things. That mix I'd made up to apply topically to my husband's feet, so that he wouldn't have to take it orally. But had discontinued using it for that. I suppose that it has fish oil, pumpkin oil, cod liver oil, flax seed oil, evening primrose oil, and saw palmetto oil in it. These were all oils that I took out of the softgel capsules. I would guess that it also has almond oil, and/or grapeseed oil, and/or safflower oil. I have a bunch of carrier oils that I use to carry my essential oils. That's what I mixed in. God is just amazing. I am constantly amazed that he made a thing as amazing as oil. I am thankful for the night's sleep. I am thankful to be pain-free."
Oil Pulling, Castor Oil
[YEA] 11/06/2013: Twinsauntymom from Ca, U.s.a.: "To tackle an abscessed tooth, first of all, pull oil. You can find the instructions for this here on earthclinic.com. It's gentle and extremely effective at deep cleaning your teeth. I would suggest using either organic extra virgin olive oil or organic coconut oil for this. Do NOT pull castor oil. It could make you rather ill.
Next, to help relieve the pain, gently massage castor oil into the sore area of your jaw, face and neck. Not inside your mouth, but on your face and neck. You will probably find that the pain will reduce within an hour or so.
The castor oil will penetrate to a depth of approximately 10 centimeters, so it will get into the infected area. Castor oil is antibacterial and will help to clean out the poison. It's also extremely effective as a painkiller. Sorry, I don't know why, I just know it works.
If you use the castor oil at night I would suggest wrapping your pillow in an old towel to prevent the oil from staining your bedding."
Oil Pulling, Garlic
[YEA] 08/12/2010: Pam from Ft. Worth, Tx: "Found this site a few weeks ago during a nasty abcess, or infection I had with a tooth that had already had root canal therapy and a crown. I had swelling in my cheek, eye, as well as a horrible headache on the left side of my head. I thought I was going to die. My endondist was booked, and could not see me for 2 weeks My MD Dr. Prescribed antibiotics, but they were working very slowly. I started several of the home remedies on here, but the two that I could see visible results working after a few days, were the oil pulling with sunflower oil ( 1 to 3 times a day), and the fresh garlic on my gum. I tried rinsing with hydrogen peroxide, and black tea bags on my gum, but found that they both pushed the infection further up into my eye. The oil pulling and fresh garlic actually brought the swelling down. Saw my endodotist today, after 2 weeks of these remedies, and x-rays are clear. He can't explain it. He said keep my fingers crossed that this was an isolated incident that healed itself. I will continue the oil pulling with Sunflower oil it is amazing. I feel that I have been healed by these two home remedies."
Oil Pulling, Turmeric, Garlic
[YEA] 02/27/2010: Jack from Scranton, Pa : "Periapical Cyst: Eliminate it with Gauze, Water, Oil Pulling, Garlic Oil, Tumeric
A Periapical Cyst is formed after trapped puss cannot escape through the infected tooth's abscess, and instead finds a path into the jaw and cheek near the tooth abscess origin. The cyst usually gets quite large, expanding the cheek outward, putting pressure on the mouth and face. Until the puss finds a way out, it will remain. A possible cause is infection from biting down hard on the weak tooth, or through a narrow opening in the abscessed tooth.
For a whole week I suffered with this type of cyst, making my cheek look bloated as though I had a very thick slice of salami between my jaw and inside cheek. It hurt on touch, and made my lower face nerves numb from the pressure. It was a bit embarrassing in public, but my health was most important, as this can sometimes be life threatening if it moves too far into the face or down the neck. Once you see the puss, you'll know why.
The day it finally broke, that morning, I decided to stuff a Gauze pad into my mouth throughout the day, to even out the look of my distorted face. By afternoon, the puss finally found a way out of my cheek tissue, through a tiny blister hole it pressed against, just above my lower jaw gum-line. Once the flow began, I carefully massaged out the rest, spitting out the salty, yellow-green puss and blood into the sink and rinsing with a glass of 50% hydrogen peroxide/ 50% water mix to disinfect the mouth.
I didn't have to use the scalpel, thanks to the gauze pad, stuffed into my upper cheek just above the infected tooth on the lower jaw. The pad was small enough to fit in my mouth, but large enough to press constantly against the cheek tissue from 10 AM to 2:30 PM that day only to my surprise. The gauze was very irritating to my inner cheek, and swelling began at 11 AM. By 2 PM, to the point the swelling of my cheek tissue was pushing against and almost over my lower teeth. By 2:30 PM, a hole broke through the blister on its own and the puss began seeping out. (Read below for the full story). To say I was pleased this worked was an understatement, as I was about to give up.
If you have an tooth abscess and a cyst filled with puss in your cheek, try this:
1. Firm GAUZE PAD (or paper towel will work) folded near the problem tooth, against the cheek with the swelling and puss pocket. Gauze or paper towel absorb moisture and add constant wet pressure to the infected cheek, to help it form an outlet blister where nothing had been before the Gauze Pad was added.
2. Regular use of OIL PULLING as suggested on this site. I used Virgin Olive Oil and Canola Oil. Also, swishing with Hydrogen Peroxide and Water mix, and brushing with Baking Soda (sodium bicarbonate) helps too, drawing out toxins.
3. Tumeric Capsules or Tumeric powder to reduce swelling at first. Once you put in the Gauze Pad though, any later swelling is a good sign if it's building inside your mouth's cheek tissue, gums. This indicates it's trying to for a blister to escape through, as it was unable to make it through the cavity tooth.
4. Garlic Oil soft-gels, Liver Cod Oil softgels (A and D), Vitamin C, Multi-Vitamins are helpful to your body. Vitamin A treats the skin. I took a few more than suggested.
5. Water. If you're 200 pounds, I suggest 100 Fluid ounces of water per day (under a gallon). Water reduces infection. Imagine not drinking water, how will the infection leave your body if your organs are drying out, unable to flush infection from your body? If you're thirsty, you're already dehydrated. Drink plenty of water, just don't over do it as it could kill.
6. Eggs. Eggs provide amino acids, omega fatty acids, protein, vitamins, etc. An egg helps provide plenty of nutrition for growth and health. Chicks thrive on the yolk especially. The yolk is key. Cooked or eat as you like.
After that, It could take as little as one day for the blister to form, or longer, depending on your intake of the ingredients. Altogether, I only used the Gauze Pad for about five hours before it opened up a blister in my inner cheek for the puss to escape. Of course, the week of taking the other ingredients no doubt played a role, but nothing sped up the process as fast as the Gauze Pad that final day to my surprise.
ORIGINAL SYMPTOMS, CAUSE and detailed SOLUTION: 7 days plus 1 day cured:
Friday night, I bit down hard on a slice of pizza, and intense, sharp pain shot down my cavity tooth. About fifteen minutes, the pain eased up mostly, but by evening that day, there would be no sleep. Throughout all day Saturday, the non-stop excruciating throbbing intensified full force, and the tooth was very sore to the touch, followed quickly by a fever including the chills, weakness, sore throat and congestion, but no vomiting or diarrhea. And I had a numb feeling on my lower lip and chin, which was slowly spreading to my right cheek.
From experience, I covered myself in heavy blankets and stuck my head over an oil filled radiator space heater, putting life on hold. Staying so hot that I "sweat out" the illness, with more water than I normally drink (2 gallons over 1 day) and plenty of replenishing vitamin C and A, D, and Calcium, with sunny side up eggs. By Sunday night at 6 PM, the fever was mostly gone; no more sore throat, weakness, chills or throbbing tooth.
Having not slept and barely eaten for two days in a row, the absence of pain allowed some shut eye, for 2 hours sprints, as I'd wake up with intense thirst. I continued drinking, but by that evening, the numbness in my face was continuing into the night, followed by swelling of my chin, and finally the right lower jaw of my face. The inflamed cheek expanded about 3/4" from where it normally rests.
Sunday throughout the entire day, I kept a warm wet compress rag held with my hand against my cheek and after seeing on EarthClinic that Tumeric reduces inflammation, I went out to the store and stocked up on the powder and the capsules (which are more tolerable to ingest). Also on pure Olive Oil for oil pulling/swishing, plenty of odorless garlic softgels, more vitamin C, cod liver oil softgels, and multivitamins.
I tried it all, and the swelling finally went down by the next morning (mostly thanks to the compress and Tumeric), but it was time to go to work with a huge Periodical Cyst/facial lump on my cheek, still filled with puss trapped under the tooth. I discovered quickly, food going into the tooth wasn't the issue, but when I first bit down on it, that caused trauma to the lower right jaw nerves, resulting in numbness and puss infection beneath the tooth root. Having no way out through the tooth, the puss found a path into my lower cheek bone and tissue. The lump was very firm, but didn't hurt much, but the pressure on my lips was heavy. I could barely smile.
That Monday, I felt very tired having not slept, and weak, so I attempted to sleep all day and continue with the treatment. By Tuesday, the swelling had not even shrunk an inch, and I had to go to work.
Continuing this all week, it finally turned to Friday night once again, and this thing was still on my face. I'm normally embarrassed by such things as this, so that night, I decided to put a GAUZE pad in my mouth to balance out the protruding bump, stuffing it just above the now swollen lower jaw. "Looks more even with my face", I thought.
Saturday morning, I could see swelling inside my cheek, so I replaced the Gauze with a new one and almost gave up as I drove up to the hospital, then decided to follow my instinct, and drove away. I was going to try and cut a hole in there and save the money. Throughout the day, I picked up groceries and shopped for foods that would feed the bones in my teeth, not sap away the calcium from them like so many junk foods. From 10 AM to 2 PM, the gauze was becoming more irritating against my inner cheek, swelling more than it had all week. At 2:30 PM, just as I got home, something wonderful happened. I tasted a very unfamiliar, salty, foul substance in my mouth. I stopped the car and glanced in the mirror, seeing a big ball of yellow-green puss sapping out of my cheek tissue just near the gum-line. Thrilled, I began spitting out over six tablespoons of puss and blood, carefully pressing on the cyst to allow more to follow out. Inside, I immediately rinsed my mouth with hydrogen peroxide/water mix, to cleanse the mouth. An hour later of this continued treatment, the lump is completely void of puss, though it is still slightly swollen having gone through such abuse. My face is back to normally thankfully and I'm convinced all that work finally paid off, mere minutes before I was going to "cut a hole inside my mouth" from the misery. Absolute relief and joy, with some apprehension it could always return.
Having learned a lesson of a lifetime, I will no longer take my teeth for granted. I have been reading much on "Curing Tooth Decay", and will eat properly once more. A man named Doctor Price, back in 1936, wrote a dental health book about various isolated villages across the world who ate rye bread, eggs, cod liver oil, butter, cheese, some greens, and milk from grass fed cows, and they were immune to tooth decay. Alternatively, he discovered that many in America, who ate mostly white bread and sugar with skim milk, suffered from many cavities and teeth that had trouble fitting in their narrow jaws, despite brushing and flossing everyday. You can find out more online with a search for "Cure tooth decay". ""Replies
06/17/2013: L P from Dublin, Ireland replies: "Thanks for your testimony.
I have had a root canal followed by crowning of my molar tooth a few years ago. After accidentally biting hard an abscess has formed at the base of the tooth between the root and jawline causing my tooth to be lifted slightly out of its socket that causes pain if the upper tooth touches it (nearly quite often it does). Of course the obvious solution would be an extraction but if there's any alternative then I'd be grateful. Would you be able to advise me on my situation? Thanks!"

06/17/2013: Joy from Battleground, Wash replies: "Activated charcoal on the gumline, tea tree oil, internal glutithione or Alpha lipoic acid or coconut oil internal or topical or both..... read the book, the root canal coverup online for free by doctor who invented root canals and now is against them."
06/18/2013: Tom from Fort Worth, Texas replies: "If you are dealing with the infection issue only, try using colloidal silver... A good brand, some not being so effective as others. Here's how to use it: Take at least a tablespoon or more into mouth and hold it there for a FULL minute making sure the abscessed tooth is being saturated by the liquid. Spit out.
Often, dental work leaves microscopic holes where infiltration by microbes can penetrate to the facial area. Especailly bad for this is the root canal.
Repeat thirty minutes later, making sure you have enough colloidal silver to saturate. Hold in mouth and spit out. Do it again thirty minutes later.
If the infection is much improved, then keep repeating until the infection is completly gone. You might need to drink a tablespoon in addition because the infection is likely to have gone into your system. Consume at least ten tablespoons over the course of a few days to clear the system.
Even when I have no infection in the mouth, once every few weeks I hold the silver in my own mouth to let the silver absorb into the "holes" in the mouth; just to keep potential infections from taking hold. I do this obviously as a preventative. (Learned to do this after being infected with the Bells Palsy virus.)"
[YEA] 04/03/2009: DarenM from Trenton, MI: "About a week ago I ate some ice cream and developed a sinus infection. ( I expected I would since I am aware of the connection. But I did it anyway) Right away I started using cayenne pepper as I often do when I begin to feel something coming on. My sinuses drained fine and I thought I was getting better so I went out and partied it up. Smoking and doing things I should not have. Eventually I ended up with a tooth abscess which is no surprise since I have some major dental issues. I suspect that during my sinus drainage and a night out my body couldn't handle it all and then my poor tooth got infected.
Finally I stayed away from all the no no's. Sweets, smoking, alcohol ect.. I stayed with the cayenne pepper and eventually started to use garlic as well since the cayenee didn't seem to be doing all that great. It helped my sinuses tremendously but couldn't touch the infection in my jaw/gum/tooth. Once I started using garlic I was able to feel relief temporarily. I even tried tilting my head in a way as to allow the garlic oils and stuff to absorb into the tooth and gum. The infection was on my upper jaw. This seemed to help but barely, and garlic is hard to take a lot of. Plus I didn't wanna mix too much cayenne pepper and garlic as I understand them both to be natural anti-coagulants, and to much of that may not be safe.
I came back online for a new hope and came across Olive Leaf Extract. I went to a health food store called Better Health and purchased some. On mine it says:
150mg Olive Leaf Standardized Extract (18% oleuropein equal to 27mg.
150mg Olive Leaf Powder
I'm not sure how much the Olive Leaf Powder matters but the standardized extract with the oleuropein is what I understand to be the anti-biotic, anti-viral, and anti-parasitic portion. From research I gathered that olive leaf extract is non-toxic which I've yet to confirm with a reputable source. But I have been taking one capsule every 2 to 4 hours and sometimes for two days. All the swelling has disappeared, my sinus have been draining like crazy, the pain in my jaw/tooth/gums is gone and I have had more energy. It is not completely gone as I can still feel discomfort in that area but after only two days I am amazed. I have had abscesses like this in the past and I know how impossible they can seem. I have always had to get my tooth extracted in order to feel relief but not this time.
One downside is that my urine PH became very low half way through the second day. So low that it burned when I went to urinate. I didn't bother checking the ORP, but now I wish I had since olive leaf extract is suppose to be a good antioxidant and I'm left curious as to how it may affect the ORP of my urine. I suspect it would have a good ORP. I still don't know why my PH was so low. Olive leaf extract is a natural broad spectrum antibiotic and I understand that antibiotics can affect PH but I didn't think it would be like this. My PH was in the 4's.
I began drinking distilled water with a PH of about 8 and did the Lemon Bicarbonate Alkalizing drink as that is my favorite and seems to work well. Checked my PH again a couple hours later and it was 7.2.
Also two things to take note of: Olive Leaf Extract may lower blood pressure and/or glucose levels. I didn't notice much change in my blood pressure but if you are on blood thinners or you are diabetic this may not be for you.
Some other things I did to help the tooth abscess:
2 Drops Clove Oil on Q-Tip applied at base of infected tooth. I also use the Q-tip to kinda brush against my gums next to the tooth to use whatever Clove Oil is left on the Q-Tip.
3 Drops Clove Oil + 9 Drops Almond Oil applied to your skin on your cheek that is closest to the infected tooth. I use the Almond Oil because the Clove Oil is very potent and may irritate the skin.
50/50 - Hydrogen Peroxide / Water used as a mouthwash.
1 Sinus Rinse using a Netipot
Hope this helps someone. I love this website and it has helped me many times!"

[BETTER BUT NOT CURED] 08/20/2009: Becky from Gilbert, Az: "tooth,gum pain/abscess: buy any liquid gel pain reliever. poke a hole in it and squeeze it directly on the painful areas or squeeze it on your finger and then apply it to all the painful areas. it will sting a little but try to keep it on as long as possible. rinse out and you will feel immediate relief! please try this because its worked for me numerous times."
[SIDE EFFECTS] 05/06/2009: CeeCee from San Diego, CA: "calcified tooth root abcess:
Having never heard of oil pulling, I tried a very expensive alternative method to try and save an upper molar which had a calcified root that was infected and could not successfully be root canaled. The gum was sore and spongy. I signed many release forms before taking injections of ozone in the gums around the tooth. This was preceeded by ozone gas in the mouth, ears and nose and followed by vitamin injections. Six treatments a week apart was recommended. It was painful and painful to pay for-$500 per treatment, but the gum was no longer spongy and painful by the end of the treatment. It was recommended to retreat in six months or so. Unfortunately the ozone dried my saliva glands horribly. And after three plus months there is no improvement in my saliva glands, leaving me with horrible dry mouth.
Now I feel twinges of mild pain in that tooth area as well. I am trying the oil pulling as we speak and we see what happens.
Has anyone else tried similar ozone treatments or does anyone have natural remedies for dry mouth. Thank you. CeeCee"

[YEA] 06/23/2012: Crystal from Burlington, Nc, Usa: "After nearly 3-4 days of no relief from my tooth pain and swelling (I am sure I had an infection as my cheek was swollen and gums throbbing), I looked online for home remedies until my dentist appointment. I read on this site about many remedies such as apple cider vinegar in water, garlic, tea bags, etc for use with tooth pain. I tried them all and with very little relief. After reading one comment about the use of Pure Vanilla Extract (supposedly the alcohol content in it helped?) I went into my kitchen and then saw that I had Peppermint Oil. I remember reading how crushed peppermint worked for someone, so I decided to try the Peppermint Oil. The vanilla only had 35% alcohol, but the Peppermint Oil had 89%. I dabbed some on with my finger and I was amazed. I was finally able to sleep pain free. The throbbing stopped. And as a bonus I had fresh breath (minus the garlic from trying previously during the first day). I continued the use of Peppermint Oil whenever I felt pain, and it seemed to last for a good while. Just turn the bottle upside down with your fingertip on it, just to get a little on there, then dab your gum around your pain. It works wonders! I'm surprised I've seen no mention of it."
Pyrogenium (Homeopathic Remedy)
[YEA] 11/29/2013: Nmx from Mn: "Homeopathy to the rescue again...... I have suffered with weak dental roots for years and have paid dearly for it.... and often found that the antibiotics the doctors used to help one tooth would harm another tooth... But after years of forking over hundreds of dollars for a root canal.... I finally found a miracle cure which dentists won't want you to know about... I haven't needed a root canal since. A few years back, after having to have a surgical root canal - because the dentist had broken off a tool in my root when he performed the initial root canal... I developed an infection after the surgery... my Dr. gave me Doxycycline for the infection... it stripped my digestive tract and turned it into "acid city"... Doxy was horrible and made me very acidic for the first time in my life. After a few days it still wasn't getting rid of the infection... I looked thru a book on "Dental Homeopathy" and found a little known remedy for tooth infections... Pyrogenium (9-12x or c)... Within one day the infection was gone. Now if I ever feel any twinging in a tooth that might mean I have an infection in my tooth... I immediately take Pyrogenium and the pain goes away... I've avoided a few expensive root canals thanks to Pyrogen.... Pass it on...
To show you how bad it is... my regular dentist sent me to an endodontist because he saw an irregularity in my root (this was many years ago)... the "expert endodontist" said I needed a root canal... He charged me $800 for it... When I went back to my regular dentist...he said there was still a problem... so I went back to endodontist... he proclaimed that it actually was a cracked root, not an infected tooth and the moron actually was going to make me pay him again to do a root canal.... I've pretty much given up on dentists and find my own cures... For $7.00 you can heal your roots not destroy them with a root canal... Also Calc Fluor is another homeopathy that claims to rebuild teeth... so you may not even need fillings... I haven't had a chance to try this but you might want to."Replies
11/29/2013: Om from Hope, Bc, Canada replies: "Well, A BIG thank you for your post. It is just the answer to my research on treating teeth without dentist. I found the link paradise now and it changed things for me in a big way. It has loads of information.
When I visited a dentist this year I had informed myself enough not to fall for fluoride poison and mercury offers. I said thank you and left.
I had no plaque to speak of due to oil pulling for almost two years now. A loose tooth is much firmer now in its socket and a sudden bout of tooth ache was treated with celtic salt, gone in hours. My gums are way better. The homeopathic remedy you mentioned is certainly going to be incorporated in my self treatment. I had a cavity at the gum line on one of my front teeth. After a few months of swishing and using Dr. Bronner's liquid kastile soap to clean my teeth this cavity is disappearing. To begin with I had my doubts but I know one has to give the body the message of Yes, it will work. I am a senior and will not go the usual route and have them all yanked out. Not to speak of the enormous sums to be surrendered.
I find the present system of medicine barbaric including dental procedures. In my opinion it is all based on business without ethics.
Recently three seniors paid me a visit and stood there with big smiles - all dentures were pink and white and identical. I looked in amazement. This is not going to happen to me. So I got to work and it looks good. One thing to take into consideration is the fact that when a tooth is out the facial features will change detrimentally. I do swishing twice daily with sesame oil and one other substance. So my breath is sweet and my mouth looks better. Thank you for the valuable info. Namaste Om"
Raw Tomatoes and Cheese
[YEA] 06/24/2008: Robert from Martinez, Calif.: "If accessible, use water pik to irrigate the area infected & you may include peroxide or salt in the irrigation water be sure to rinse the water pik after by sending clean water thru it after the tooth irrigation is ended. you can get creative & use baking soda ,or vinegar, or iodine, etc.
Now here is something that worked for me: eat up to 12 tomatoes raw only & if you can find raw cheese, unsalted for pain this works great. I got up to 7 tomatoes & the abscess burst! I had a tuff time to find unsalted cheese so I bought it at least raw anyway. The main thing is the tomatoe. My abscess has not returned in 2 years. have fun.. bob"
Red Clover Tea
[YEA] 08/26/2009: Noelle from Minneapolis, Minnesota, Usa: "Tooth Abcess
Try Red Clover tea. One teaspoon of Red Clover in a strainer or infuser, pour boiling water over it in a cup to cover, steep at least 7 minutes. One cup twice a day; after the pain dies down take one cup once a day. This one is very effective. I held off the pain of an abcessed tooth for 5 months with just Red Clover. When it was finally pulled the tooth turned out to be the biggest honkin' double abcess I'd ever seen and the surgeon was pretty impressed, too. I would have kept the tooth and mounted it, but it's illegal to give that to the patient in the state of Minnesota. When I had the tooth pulled, I used no antibiotics, just 12 garlic capsules and 3 dropperfuls of Olive Leaf per day. Look ma, no infection!"
