Dear Kat: In that case, before going to sleep take 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda with 1/2 glass of water. Also try to use baking soda as a mouthwash to neutralize the acid first before a clove oil peroxide. If a local store has a half a pound of powdered xylitol, a teaspoon of xylitol taken internally and used as a mouthwash can also help. For remineralization of tooth, some molybdenum supplements may help.

There is never a convenient time for a terrible, throbbing tooth ache, but it seems that it's most likely to happen over the weekend or during a holiday. The cure could be as close as your kitchen or bathroom cabinet - whole cloves or clove oil! Cloves are a safe, natural home remedy that will relieve toothaches. It's best to begin the treatment as soon as possible, especially if the tooth has abscessed.

Do you moisten the teabag before you use it or use it dry?

EC: It will be more comfortable to moisten the tea bag before you use it.

I had a abscessed tooth that was giving me fits. This is what worked for me. 2-3 oz. of very warm water, add 2 tablespoons of 10ppm colloidal silver and only 6 drops of DMSO. Swish this around your bad tooth. I try to keep it in my mouth about 2-3 minutes then spit it out. Keep doing this till you have used all the water mixture. Do this 2 times a day and in 2-3 days the infection and pain will be gone. It really worked for me.

Folks, recently discovered not so painful soft "lump" on outside upper back tooth. This tooth has been bothering me for couple of months. Very painful for a couple of weeks and then no pain. I know it will need to come out very soon. Question is: how to mitigate and even eliminate this infection. I pull EVOO at least twice a day and have for more than 6 months. My overall health is excellent (65yrs). Like I said I know this tooth needs to come out and I want to eliminate this abscess before I go in (if possible)... Thanks for any info. ThomasM

MADDTOM from Colorado: I really like posts like yours because I have a lot of experience now with good results re my teeth to pass on. I am a senior with ALL my teeth except one I lost many years ago. Even in that case I should have known better but thanks to EC I have a completely new and far more effective tooth care regimen which empowers me to know what is in my mouth and to keep business away from my health.

Recently I saw a dentist after years and the first thing was that he expectd me to accept fluoride. Then, when I told him that when I was much younger a very well respected dentist who taught a a university, sent a piece of mercury down my gullet, saying:don't swallow it! When I told this dentist about it, He mentioned that it probably "went right through. Hmm! Very casual attitude.

I have now been oil pulling for about two years. At the beginning there was a molar that felt loose and the dentist said it had to come out. Then I found: http--paradisenow.net-healing. That changed everything. Oil pulling had given me a fresh breath daily, a clean and healthy tongue and probably detoxed my system without any trouble. It also fixed the loose tooth more firmly in its socket. I don't like to lose a tooth since it has such an effect on the facial features. Oil pulling had also brightened my teeth somewhat.

However, thanks to the site above, I am now trying to heal a cavity on my front tooth. My gums that had always been a problem, are looking really good and the previously exposed tooth necks are almost all right at the gum line, looking really good.

But now, to heal any cavity, I am using MMS (Jim Humble's website) and wow my teeth are getting actually white. I did not really expect that. I thought my yellow/grey teeth would never but they are really nice looking. I am working on some pockets and to eliminate possible sites of infection. I keep the MMS solution in my mouth for two minutes twice a day. If I forget it once, or I am too tired, I use Xytol in my mouth before falling asleep. Of course, I will not forget my oil pulling as it has an overall effect on the body which may vary with the individual. You will find that present practices of dental care are far from beneficial to ones health and thinking of the sums that have to be surrendered!

Anyway I am taking responsibility for my health and again thanks to EC have initiated more changes to the great improvement of my health. The sites mentioned also deal very well with abscesses and pain.

All the best! Om

This is an aside from those who posted about treatments for tooth ailments. I go to the local college here in Toronto for hygenic treatment as well as fillings. Because this is a college, the fees are minimal, for the fillings it was $20 per filling. However the appointments are in 3 hour blocks because the students are working on you and have to be constantly evaluated by the instructors. If you have the time, it's a great cost saver.

Took my 9 year old daughter to the dentist and come to find out she had a gum abcess and infection in a tooth with a cavity. Of course their first recourse was to put her on antibiotics so they could pull the tooth 1 week later. I refused the antibiotics, nicely, but I still got the dirty look and the "note" on the file. So, my daughter and I were very determined to stop the issue in it's tracks... Just to prove them wrong if nothing else. This isn't for the lazy at heart... it's 7 days of killing an infection and keeping it killed.

First of all, NO sugar. She got whole grain bread maybe once per day, but not at all if we could get away with it, other than that, no grains. Pasturized dairy was cut way back to just cheese on occassion. That means no sodas or juices, water was the drink of the week. Whole, low sugar fruits are okay (apples, berries, melon), and of course veges.

Okay, now for the fun part: once per day she did a rinse of water with baking soda and peroxide (I never really measured it, just put some water - maybe 1/4 cup?? -- in a cup with maybe 1 tsp of baking soda and 1/2 tsp of peroxide or so). Twice per day she did a rinse of a commercial tea tree mouthwash with an extra 4 drops of grapefruit seed extract added. Each rinse is done after brushing the teeth.

Once per day, the infected area was sprayed with 2 squirts of colloidial silver, 10 ppm.

Every day she took supplements of:
Vitamin C, 1000 mg
Vitamin D 10-15, 000 IU
Chelated Zinc 100 mg
Oil of Oregano 45 mg (standardized to 70% carvacrol)
Olive Leaf 310 mg with 40 mg of powdered extract standardized to 18% oleuropein
Krill Oil for Omega 3's
A Garlic supplement for Immune support, though if I could have gotten her to take whole, crushed garlic I would have been happier.
And Alpha Lipoic Acid 100 mg

Definitely believe in leaving nothing to chance.

We started this regimen on a Monday afternoon when she got home from school, and by Wednesday she was totally pain free. The cavity itself lightened in color. We kept it up for the entire week, and by the time she got to the dentist for the extraction... Well, they were surprised. Looked at her file, looked in her mouth, asked her if there was any pain (she replied no, naturally), and then the super sweet assistant actually asked me how we did that. They confirmed that she was completely infection and abcess free.

Sorry for the lengthy post, but I always like to see amounts and directions... So hopefully this can help someone else :-)

Actually just rinsing with colloidal silver once per hour would have erradicated the infection in the tooth (you could also swallow 1 ounce of "clean" colloidal silver after the rinses), but all of the rest that this woman used for her daughter would be great for cavity PREVENTION.

NOTE: For pain during tooth infection, frequent swishing of peroxide (then spit), helps pain and infection. Do this at least an hour from the colloidal silver.

Good job, Erin. It takes a lot of guts as a parent to go against the normal medicated route and use true healing protocols. Hats off to you for loving your daughter enough to press through and get the best results.

Several years ago, I had an infection in the root canal linked to four upper front crowns. I went to the Dentist who gave me an anti-biotic, which seemed to clear it up. Two weeks later the infection returned worse than ever, so I decided to try Echinacea (purple cone flower). I made a tea with a teaspoon of the dried leaves with a pint of hot water in a small stainless steel teapot and simmered the concoction gently for about ten minutes until it had cooled enough to hold in my mouth. I held the warm liquid in my mouth, swishing it around my mouth for about ten minutes, once in the morning and again before I went to bed. On the third day the pain which had been somewhere under my nose had gone, and I had an abscess on my gum which burst later that day and quickly healed. With love as always.

I cured an abscessed tooth by taking a half teaspoon of echinacea/ goldenseal tincture every hour for the first day of a really severe toothache and holding spilanthes tincture in my mouth to dull the pain. I discovered the herb meadow sweet to be the best pain relief for the tooth. Within minutes of drinking a mild decoction of the tea the pain would be gone for hours. It was a long weekend and no hope for going to the dentist. I was suprised the next morning that the swelling was way down so I continued taking the echinacea/ goldenseal tincture. as the abscess subsided i decreased the dose, taking it every three or four hours the second day . I continued for a week taking 3 doses a day. At the end of that time I had no abscess . It was confirmed a few weeks later by xrays at the dentist. I also drank lots of water with a 1/2 fresh lemon or lime sqeezed into to it.

I have had an abcessed tooth off and on for a while. I have tried just about everything on it and found one of the best remedies to be eucalyptus tea bags. Put the tea bag in your mouth around the infected tooth and hold it in there as long as you feel necessary. sometimes I would sleep with one. When you take the bag out you can literaly see some of the infection on the bag that has been drawn out of your tooth.

Do you put the tea bag in water first before putting it in your mouth

Adrian,

When we use tea bags in the mouth, we find it easiest to at least dampen the tea bag first. With harder herbs especially, it will take a while for hard and dry herbs to become soft and comfortable in your mouth.

Often I put a tea bag in a mug and pour very hot water over it, just to cover it. After 5 minutes I drain the water and when the tea bag is cool, I use it in the mouth.

Fenugreek steeped into a tea / mouthwash cured abscessed teeth. I rinsed my mouth and then soaked a gauze pad and placed in in my mouth for an hour at a time and it drew the infection out of my system. Sometimes I had to open a little hole in my gums so it would drain. I had 10 abscessed teeth at one time and did this for many months. It helped me alot as I didn't have any medical coverage to go to a dentist myself. I still to this day recommend this to anyone with the same problem.

So I haven't tried the tea bag thing but I was wondering about poking a hole in the gums.... Does it matter where? What did you use to poke it

If the tooth is fully there I know itll come out the gums but what if my tooth broke and there may be a passage to drain out of, er I hope so at least, is that possible?

How many days did you wait til u poked a hole in it?

How long does it take to heal?

Does it just go away or keep coming back if everything does not come out the first time?

You do not need to poke a hole in your gums, I think it is unnecessary, just use DMSO It is a carrier it will carry whatever you want right into the infected site. Basically 1/2 teaspoon DMSO with whatever sterilizer your using I use MMS or Sea Salt, and 1/8 or 1/4 cup water and I just brush onto my gums and try to not get any on my teeth let it soak in for 20 minutes and rinse

Hi Chico. I was just wondering why on earth you would want to poke holes around a sore infected tooth? I cringe just thinking about it. Why don't you just simply put some Colloidal Silver on it? Or even Manuka Honey works, as well as Hydrogen Peroxide. I have stopped cavities with all 3 of these treatments! And not one them involve pain. Please give one of them a chance! Be well and pain-free.

Hi Lynn. You were asking how Colloidal Silver , Manuka Honey and Hydrogen Peroxide are used to stop cavities. When I use Colloidal Silver on a sore tooth, I usually will soak a cotton pad and keep it on the tooth for 30 seconds and then I gargle some more Colloidal Silver. When I use Manuka Honey, I just rub it in or on the sore spots. With Hydrogen Peroxide, I just simply gargle with it. These have all worked wonderfully for me and my family. I hope this helps!

My four year old had a tooth abscess a few weeks ago. It was in the gum above one of his top front teeth. I only knew what it was because my firstborn had had the same thing almost 20 years ago. At the time we knew nothing else to do so we went to the dentist. I think the dentist pulled the tooth and gave him an antibiotic.

Well, knowing what to do at home didn't mean a four year old was going to be too keen on my treatment plan. The best course of action seemed to be putting clay on the abscess overnight. I have done this myself and knew the clay would stay put, or at least would only slowly wear away from the area overnight. Anyway, it seemed the best option!

I had French Green Clay powder handy (thanks to Mmsg's mention of it a number of times over the years! ) and mixed equal parts in a little cup. I waited a few minutes until it was like mud. I smeared a pea sized amount over the abscess area after he was in bed and very sleepy. I made a point of making sure he was tired at bedtime so he wouldn't mind so much. I was afraid if he was awake for a while he would fool with it and it would end up not being where I wanted it. In the morning, I removed what was left with a paper towel.

I did this 3 nights in a row. I didn't do anything else. (Maybe I gave him vitamin C during the day, can't remember now. It would have been a good idea anyway! ) After 3 days it was gone. As if it had never been there.

Bentonite clay would have worked as well I think, the French Green was just the most handy at the moment. And I love French Green Clay. It is so silky!

Had a re-occuring back moler - pre-existing tooth/bone infection and in the 9th hour before going to the ER thought I'd give this a try:

Steeped fresh oregano plant from a friends garden and chopped fresh organic lemons (with peels- important) and let both steep (do not boil) together for :30 mins - and swished in mouth every 15-30 mins, then consumed - repeat during waking hours for at least 5 days.

Amazingly, the very severe pain subsided instantly! The medium inflammation reduced daily. It's important to continue applications for 5 days or longer- as needed, even though symptoms are relieved.

A tooth abscess or infected tooth is often one of the most painful experiences an individual is forced to endure. While most conventional treatment options include invasive remedies and even surgery, natural remedies are typically just as effective, if not more so, without the added discomfort of such treatments. Garlic is one of the most effective treatments for an abscessed tooth and can be done in the comfort of your own home. Over 70 of our readers have reported a cure using garlic to treat their infected gums and teeth.

I was young when I got braces, which messed my teeth up more then anything! I had my top teeth extracted, after years of fighting with broken teeth, infections, and so on. (now goin through alot with my bottom teeth) ive tried EVERYTHING.. But have found that whole clove garlic (3-5 cloves a day.. I cut them up and swallow them with water) will help with infection, and clove oil works wonders! I couldnt get over how fast clove oil can take away the pain. I dip just the tip of a q-tip into the oil, and hold it to my tooth for a few seconds, then the surrounding gums. It will make your mouth numb if you use to much! I had severe pain that took over one side of my face.

I cant stress how much clove oil has saved me from those sleepless nights, and awful pains. The only other thing that has worked for a little while was natural vanilla extract. I did the same thing, q-tip dipped in the vanilla, but I would take the cotton off the q-tip, and press it against my tooth or gums. I really hope this helps someone out there.. This pain, and having to deal with tooth pain/infection/abcess is the WORST! Btw, garlic works wonders for colds and sinus infections too!

Cloves, garlic really worked for tooth pain and abscess!

I have had an abscess that started over a year ago. I looked online and saw that garlic works to kill the abscess. I ate 3 cloves of minced up garlic a day, and after 3 days the infection was killed. I had started eating right, avoiding white sugar and white flour, corn syrup, MSG's and all the other 'non foods' out there, started drinking raw milk, etc. About a month ago I started eating bread a lot, wasn't eating as well as I should have. I also binged on chocolate at Easter, ate a LOT of it. So, what happened? My tooth became infected again! I never was able to get the abscess to drain (I tried using a cottonball and salt/baking soda but it was under my upper gum and I could never get it 'right on' where the swelling was, it would always move and hit where the gum wasn't swelled up). So I went on here to find out about cloves. I don't have clove oil, and the pain was getting worse because I kept putting off treating it with raw garlic. I saw someone mention using clove powder, and dipped a cotton ball in that. It burned my gum, but it's hard to get the powder up there because the abscess is so high up near my cheek and gum. So instead, I got some hot water from the tap (probably 120 degrees, not boiling water, about 1 ounce or less, and took 1/2 teaspoon of clove powder, mixed it in with the water and swished it around my mouth. About 5 minutes later, the pain was pretty much gone! I then minced up a large clove of garlic and ate it (with food, because garlic is pretty hot tasting). So far so good! The powdered cloves in the water worked, and wasn't as burning to my gum either. I will eat another clove of garlic tonight before I go to bed. I keep taking raw garlic until the infection goes away and the tooth stops hurting. Excellent advice, thank you! I tell others about this website, in fact I'm going to email my friend now (she has a lot of tooth problems). Thank you so much!!
