Cloves for Toothaches and Tooth Abscess

I just found this website and all I can say is - Thank You! I've been applying essential oil of clove to my tooth, (my lower right side, canine) and taking 2 aspirin a day as needed. These two things have really helped. (past week or so).

Last night and this morning, I added 10 drops of tea tree oil to 8 oz. of water and swished until glass empty.

I'm now going to call my local pharmacy to see if they sell colloidal silver. OR, order online. I've heard about c.s. for years, but I was too chintzy to pay $$ for one bottle. But, with a possible dental visit now looming in front of me, I've changed my mind about being chintzy! Lol

Question: Any reccomendations for what kind of colloidal silver? Particular brands? What?

It's been years since I last went to a dentist.. and I'd like to keep it that way.

Best Regards,

Last month I had two extraction and about three days ago I started to experience pain on all my teeth, I didn't pay too much attention but I had a suspicion that one of my extractions had gotten infected even though I took prescribed antibiotic (not normal for me).

Well, to make a long story short the second day I woke up in the middle of the night with excruciating pain on one of my teeth but it kept changing from tooth to tooth so I made an appointment with my dentist. He took ex-rays but said he didn't see any infection and everything looks fine. He said I can get a root canal but he is not able to do it himself because I have a strange canine that has two roots and the split of the roots is very deep from the surface.

This morning when I got up my face, jaw line was swollen and that particular tooth hurt really bad. I felt feverish and achy, right away I remember my Indian and Caribbean ancestry where we used nature for healing as a first alternative and then... I went to another website which I don't know if am allowed to mention and read up on it. I first brush my teeth and tongue with sea salt ( this cleaned my teeth so beautifully) then rinsed with warm water and salt. After that I followed up with pure 100% virgin cold pressed Olive Oil and held it in my mouth for about 10 to 15 minute which I spit out at the end of the 15 minute.

Then I took a teaspoon of ground clove and with my clean fingers rubbed it all through my infected area inside my mouth and the entire gum, after about 30 minutes the pain went away and the swelling started going down. I kept doing this every couple of hours or so. Am glad to tell you that the swollen has gone away in about 8 hours later, the tooth area is still tender but I will continue until is completely cure the infection.

I also realize that I have abandoned my upbringing and I need to have a more holistic approach to my overall health. After feeling better I went to the grocery store and began the "Daniel Fast" (which I have been doing every year around the same time) only eating foods that mother nature provides us with, this even includes the oil and condiments that I use to prepare my meals. Please be careful with sugar, agave and white flour because even though it is from the ground it is processed and one of our worst enemy for our general health and teeth. I should also say that I have not eaten meat for over 30 years but I do eat fowl and fish but not while am fasting. However I am seriously considering giving that up too.

May God and good health be with you for all the days of your life!!!!!!! Let there be love and peace on earth.

Pertaining to clove powder, it is incredible. The tooth pain is gone but unfortunately, the abscess is still hurting but I just may be able to sleep today.
