I started brushing my teeth with extra virgin coconut oil. In a week's time painful sensations started in my 2nd molar right side in lower as well as upper jaw. I stopped using coconut oil and started brushing with Colgate Sensitive.
Now I have done 10 days course of an antibiotic but no relief. Doctor is advising to go for root canal for both teeth as the pain is unbearable.
please advise if I can get rid of this infection without going for root canal.
I have been dealing with a problem wisdom tooth for several months. I have been on antibiotics in the past for a tooth infection. It came back a week and a half later. I tried oil pulling with coconut oil at the first signs of the infection. About 5 days later, after oil pulling morning and at night (twice a day) It is completely gone. I would definitely recommend this.
Coconut oil for abcess in gum.
I swished it around 20 mins or more 3 times every hour for a day. It's gone people!

I've suffered with bad teeth all my life and have tried all kinds of home remedies for toothaches and infections. I just recently stumbled on using coconut oil, and it works better than anything else I have tried. I have turned around two infections now in a single day by coating the gum and tooth with coconut oil and oil pulling over the tooth for several minutes. It's worth a try.
Coconut oil got rid of tooth infection. I've used coconut oil on a regular basis now for a few months in cooking mainly. Never experienced side effects no matter how much I used. Stopped using for a week or so due to busy work schedule, and got a bad infection in a tooth. My cheek was quite swollen and getting worse by the hour. Instead of going to a dentist for antibiotics, I got back on the coconut oil. Took one teaspoon orally then just used as I normally would in cooking. In less than two days the swelling and infection was gone!
