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.

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

Greetings, Om.

Two things:

  • I would love to know how your home treatments are doing for you, these years later!
  • You had stated, "I do swishing twice daily with sesame oil and one other substance." would you be able to disclose this "other substance"?

Thank you for sharing your thoughts; I LOVE your attitude regarding the dental industry, on dentures, as well as your holistic view.

Be well.

Greetings, well, my treatments are continuing and my attitude to dental "care" is ever the same.: stay clear of trouble which will surely ensue and I do not mix with people who get paid for poisoning others.

The "other" substance is manava mutra, in other terms human self urine. I use it every day. When I ingest my daily quota, about one half pint, I keep a mouthful for a few minutes until the quota is finished. I have at the present time lost three teeth and there are apparently two abscesses. No pain but causing concern. But self urine is absolutely the answer. Because I am vegetarian the taste is pleasant. But what it does! No pain, removes pockets and my remaining teeth are bright, no plaque. I do plan the use of DMSO in conjunction with coll. silver as soon as I have purchased a new silver generator to remove the entire infections.

I still swish with pure sesame oil most days. Other oils are not so effective according to Ayurvedic medicine. Luckily my mouth does not reveal all my teeth when I smile, so I am OK.

I have found that when an abscess becomes troublesome, I use hot chamomile tea to burst the swelling. Then all is well. I keep a constant watch but the thousands of $$$ and ensuing troubles with repeat visits and the thought that a dentist will not touch mercury with bare hands but find it safe enough in people's mouth tells me they are trained how to generate revenue not service to humanity.

Be well and avoid big pharma.

Namaste, Om

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

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!

I right now have a wisdom tooth ( lower ) that is now infected. I don't have any dental insurance so I have to resort to my knowledge of self-treatment with what I know to work naturally and well. I was in TERRIBLE pain, couldn't eat, couldn't sleep. I attacked the pain and the infection that had by now moved into my lower jaw area and starting to swell with multiple herbs. Every 30 or 40 minutes or so I used either a salt rinse, clove oil applied directly to the infected area, garlic applied to the infected area or a mouth rinse with 3% hydrogen peroxide. I did this for about 4 or 5 hours starting at about 7:00p.m. After about an hour or 2, the infected area started to feel better. About an hour before going to bed, I had chicken soup with chopped garlic bits added. Right before bed , I made a hydrogen peroxide/distilled water solution to drink down. I used 35% food grade ( you shouldn't use 3% from drug store, that's for rinsing your mouth ). Normal preparation is 10 drops peroxide to distilled water ( you have to use distilled water!! ). I used 25 drops because I was fighting an infection.

Do not have anything in your stomach when using food grade peroxide/distilled water. Don't eat from 1 to 3 hours before or after using peroxide/water solution. After doing all of this, I felt much better. The swelling was down and the pain was virtually gone. I kept the routine up for another 5 or so days to make sure that the infection was gone. Hope this helps everybody!!

For a tooth abscess, swoosh salt water around first. The abscess will subside very quickly. Then mess around with your oils and your herbs. Salt should come first. It works, I can tell you from personal experience. And very quickly.

God bless.

For my tooth abscess, I swished with sea salt and warm water which drew out the infection. Then I used an ice pack this helped with the swelling and kept the infection from spreading. Ice pack 5 min. on 5 min. off. This keeps the infection from spreading into your jaw and cheek further. My dentist said I did the right thing until I could see him. My tooth looked perfectly fine, nice and white and the x-ray showed nothing wrong, but obviously there was an infection. I am taking a prescription by Green Stone antibiotic for a bacterial infection due to tooth abscess and the swelling is down. I am still using the ice pack, also

I had an infection in my gums and it caused extreme pain and i couldn't sleep. I made a paste of sesame oil, clove oil, and activated charcoal. I placed the paste in a small piece of cheesecloth and placed it in my mouth next to the infected gum. I slept with it overnight. The next morning, the infection was gone!!! So Amazing. No more waiting to get into the dentist for an appointment or prescription meds. Activated Charcoal also works great if you are planning on drinking alcohol. I take one capsule for every drink consumed and have no hangover in the morning. Amazing stuff!!

Even dentists have been known to recommend a tea bag (specifically black tea) for oral health. We all know that tea is a healthy beverage, but it also assists the recovery of abscesses and swollen or bleeding gums. Most of us wouldn't think of using such an unlikely treatment option. We view tea as an effective health supplement, knowing that the different kinds - green tea, black tea, etc. - offer different benefits. However, few people realize that the simple tea bag can be used as an effective home remedy. A black tea bag is one of the most effective treatment options for a tooth infection or abscess.

Usually when I got an abscess I went straight to antibiotics. It happened accidentally when I purchased a bottle of mouth wash with tea tree oil in it, while I already had the abscess but not to cure the abscess just for overall oral health. Any case I had this abscess and was planning to go to the chemist to get antibiotics. I was using the bottle with tea tree oil in it, and in 2 days my abscess was gone, not sure what it does but I use it daily.

tea tree oil: This is a remedy that works for me....Just soak a tiny bit of cotton wool( about a cotton bud sized piece,) and tuck it under the gum in the infected area, replace ever hour or so. The abcess will diminish after a day.You are not supposed to swallow TTO so avoid this by spitting out into a tissue- but its not fatal.- Definitely the lesser of 2 evils.

I have now had 2 abscesses on my lower jaw bone. I think this is what my doctor called it when I last saw him. It was either an abscess or an infection he referred to it as but I cannot really remember.

Anyway, what happens is my jaw starts to become really sore and I can feel a lump on my lower jaw bone. This lump cannot be felt inside my mouth but can be felt by pressing my face at the bottom of my jaw.

I was prescribed antibiotics by the doctor on both occasions. I can't take anything with penicillin in as I'm allergic to it and come out in a rash. The problem is although the pain eventually goes when I take the antibiotics I can still feel a very small lump in my jaw which makes me think that the infection has not totally cleared. This has happened on both occasions when I have had an infection. I am worried now that I am going to be more likely to get recurrent infections every few months because of it.

Can anyone recommend anything natural I could take to clear the infection, please? Thank you.

Hi Wieas,

You can try swishing with Sodium bi Carbonate water, which you can make by disolving one tea spoon of Sodium bi Carbonate in half glass of water. You can do it at least twice a day and it should keep the bacteral infection at bay. Good Luck

Hi Baldev, thanks for your response. Is Sodium Bicarbonate the same as Bicarbonate of Soda, that we in the UK buy in the supermarket?

Dear Wieas,

Concerning your desire to find a natural antidote to the infection on your jaw; This is what I'd do if this were me... I'd take a high parts per million solution of colloidal silver (over 100 ppm) and mix with an equal part of DMSO, a solvent and carrier. A cap full and a half of both... Or a tablespoon of each and use white paper towel to soak up the mix. When combined the mix will become warm. Immediately soak the paper towel with the mix and apply the soaked part of the paper towel to the jaw where the absess is located. Hold there for fifteen minutes. Repeat an hour later.

Repeat the same protocol the next day. And the next. By the third day you should be able to tell a big difference. If better, continue the treatment.

The silver solution kills the virual/fungal/bacterial infection and the DMSO carries the silver INTO the jaw.

Best to you,

Dave

Dear Earth Clinic readers, I am asking for your help. Two days ago at a dental appointment, an xray showed an absess/cyst at bottom of a tooth. Root canal is recomended asap. I have no pain and didn't know I had it. I believe in dr. hal huggins in not having root canals (have had past ones pulled). I seriously do not want to have a root canal done and am wondering what Bill could suggest or anyone that has been able to clear up this condition. I am sure it is affecting my health. Thanks in advance.

Hi Linda, it is very dangerous to let a tooth abcess go untreated. My husband had a tooth abcess a couple of years ago. He'd had a toothache with minor pain for about a week and didn't pay much attention to it until a red line started to form down his neck one morning. He was about to leave the country on business but realized (Thank GOD) that it was now a medical emergency and rushed to get the tooth removed. The oral surgeon who extracted his tooth said he had reached him just in time and that it would have been a disaster if he had gotten on the plane to travel to Europe. As I have since learned from multiple dentists, infection from a tooth abcess can kill you so it is very important to treat an abcessed tooth as soon as possible. Best to you, Liz.

Hi, Have the tooth removed and take antibiotics for the infection, take vit c and zinc to heal. Do not take any sugar/ fruit to prevent candida. If necessary afterwards take an iodine supplement.

a great painkiller and infection fighter for tooth/gum/abcess pain is turmeric for $4.00 or less in your local grocerie store in the spices section. I was amazed when I used it how it took away the pain and inflammation. just a teaspoon in a bowl with just enough PURIFIED WATER to make it the consistency of wet mud. You can use a cotton ball or a small cut piece of cotton cloth with a blob of wet turmeric ( careful- it is what mustard stains are made of), and place it on the tooth so it can seep between the teeth and to the abcess, the taste isn't that bad, especially when you can't sleep or anything w/o pain. If you are lying down, don't forget to take out the cotton ball/cloth before you fall asleep. Also, rinsing prior with PURIFIED WATER, 1 teaspoon of h202 (drugstore kind ok), and 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda ( organic-about $3.57 a lb. bag but goes very far when using small amounts. I don't care what Arm and Hammer says, they put something in their bs because organic is MUCH more body friendly). Have the turmeric ready to go in before you rinse because it can be painful if the abcess is bad but the turmeric is also a painkiller. When I think of all the times in my life I used oragel just to cry myself to sleep-ughhh! As usual, how long it takes will depend on the severity of the infection but it sure worked for me. MANY BLESSINGS TO YOU.

How often should I apply the turmeric paste? So far I'm applying once every 30 minutes and I have felt zero relief. Am I putting it on too often or what? Thank you

Hey, I currently have a tooth abscess and it is killing me and has my cheek an mouth numb, I went to the Dr. afterwork to get antibiotics but they wouldn't give me an Rx because they said they didn't have any appointments available and needed to assess me prior to dispensing medications. When I got home I thought of the remedy for boils which according to this website is tumeric. Well, it seems to me the concept of a boil & a tooth abscess are basically the same. A boil is infection under the skin accompainied by poisonous blood and puss w/inflamation and the same with an abscess but surrounding a bad tooth. So last night when I got home in severe pain (could hardly open my mouth). I put a tsp of tumeric in some applesauce (still almost threw it up) but to my surprise the swelling went down and the pain subsided. It's late morning now and I am beginning to feel a slight discomfort, so I plan on taking more tumeric. Hope this helps someone else.

After a long history of cysts infections around dead teeth in my upper jaw and several surgeries I have finally found my cure THANKS to your great site. Thursday morning my cyst got infected awfully, read about turmeric here on friday and started taking two caps right away. next morning the pain was gone except for pain when i would pressure the area. Today, Sunday, even that pain is almost completely gone and i feel like a new person! still taking 2 turmerics a day, will go down to one for the next 4 days or so and see. special thanks to FRAN.

I just want to report back on some of the treatments for tooth abcess.

I had a bad crown that would bother me occasionally, but I would manage it with a mixture of half baking soda, half seasalt which I put into my blender and ground to a fine powder. You use it as toothpaste. This is an old Edgar Cayce formula for teeth and gum health, and it works great.

Anyway, it flaired up and the salt/soda combination couldn't stop it from progressing. I unfortunately was just changing from one dental plan to another so I fell between the cracks and had to wait a week to get some treatment. The pain was becoming unbearable! Anyway, I was reminded of your website so I looked it up and decided to try the slippery elm, charcoal, clove oil, baking yeast paste.

By this time it was appearent that the abcess was at the root of the tooth and was begining to push the tooth up and it seemed that the paste was unable to really penetrate into the jawbone to effect it...and the pain was getting worse! I read further in that article and the gentleman also recommened taking Turmeric and I remembered that it was ideal for boils also. So I thought, what is an abcess, but a boil in the jaw?

So I made up capsules of half turmeric and half cayanne pepper. Sure enough, within a hour or so, it started to reduce. Encouraged, I decided to go to straight Turmeric and have been taking a heaping teaspoonful in a glass of warm milk sweetened with Stevia 2-3 times a day. It actually tastes pretty good!

Bottom line is that the pain is greatly reduced and I am convinced this could completely cure this problem, but I am going to the Dentist monday anyway to get this crown properly fixed.

Turmeric has kept these last few days from being an absolute nightmare! By the way, I started taking Levaquin (a powerful antibiotic) about 5 days ago, and it did NOTHING! Thank you and thank God for this site!

David in H.B.
