Quite a few years ago, at this point, I was really having problems with this same thing. Believe it or not, it was my acupuncturist who fixed that issue. I would never have put this together but he explained that tooth sensitivity is related to stomach issues. He needled me for this and it took care of this! Now, when my teeth feel strange or are sensitive, I know it has more to do with my stomach than my teeth. I eat calming foods and never drink cold drinks as cold puts out the digestive fire and causes havoc in the stomach.
Hope this helps, Lisa
Cider Apple Vinegar worked for my dental extraction pain. 1 tspn in a glass of luke warm water, swish gently. It reduced the swelling and inflammation. Follow dentist advice for the first 24- 48 hours. To ensure clotting has taken place Then mouth wash twice a day. Any pain and swelling return to the dentist.
2 weeks ago, I had a wisdom tooth pulled, it would hurt and in that area it would feel hot. I started off putting minced garlic in the area and it stopped the pain, but 1 week later it still felt hot and too much garlic was making the gum raw. Thank-you for the vinegar idea, it worked and after about 3 days it is healing, no more hot spot. I mix about 2 teaspoons in a glass of water and swish it in that area... 3 times a day.... Feels great now!!!
When my daughter got all four wisdom teeth pulled in the same day, I gave her homeopathic Arnica 200c just before the procedure, shortly after the procedure and every few hours during the first day, and as needed the few days after. She never needed any pain meds even though we had gotten the prescription filled just in case. She never had any swelling or bruising. Homeopathy (it's not herbs) causes the body to heal faster and eliminates or decreases symptoms in the meantime if you choose the right remedy for your situation.
The homeopathic remedy, Ruta, is effective for pain resulting from braces or the visits where they adjust the braces. You can get the remedies on Amazon or any site where homeopathic medicines are sold. There are several different brands.
After dental extraction requiring 2 hours of cutting and 15 stitches my husband was in a lot of pain even after taking panadiene forte, a very strong pain killer. He asked me if there was anything I could use (very rare) so I gave him clove oil but not having high expectations as whole clove had failed me recently when I was trying to avoid kids flu. He applied it with a cotton bud and I was surprised he got 3 hours relief. He slept. Well when he went back to work he soaked a cotton wool and left it there. He has done this a few times and the skin on his inner lip and gum is showing signs of irritation but he says I can work on that (probably coconut oil) when he is not in anymore pain.
I have been giving him to avoid infection and inflammation olive leaf, vitamin c, gse, li, sea salt and bs and Apple Cider Vinegar tonic. And once per day (as this is how often I see him), milk with turmeric, cinnamon and powdered clove.
It is healing nicely (day 3) and he is still using the clove oil but on cotton buds and not wearing all day.
To: Mr Ted.... I have a question
I had a root canal done in a right upper tooth when I was 15 years old. Everything was o.k. Until I was pregnant with my daughter about 9 years ago. The gum was infected (around the area of root canal) a large pus from root canal was hurting my mouth. I was put on antibiotics twice during my pregnancy. My oral surgeon drained the pus after I gave a birth to my daughter. That was 9 years ago.
I began to have pain in the same area this summer. Once more I saw my dentist and he told me that I needed to extract the tooth. To make a long story short, I found a dentist who would do a re-root canal. He did a re-root canal for me this October of 2011 and put a new crown. His comment was there would be no guarantee that this tooth would last long. I thought he was saying to me indirectly that I need to extract this tooth eventually. My gum area was again started hurting about 2-3 weeks ago, so I put clove oil and tea tree oil in where I was hurting. Fortunately all my pain is gone and I feel that this tooth will last long. Do you think these oil are getting rid of my infection? I understand we cannot wipe out infection from root canal completely.
I really want to keep all my teeth including the one I talked about. Is there any other recommendation to keep the tooth other than what I am doing right now? (using oil) Sincerely, Summer

Hi, I had a wisdom tooth extraction which led to dry socket. It hurt so bad, the pain was unbearable. I couldnt get to the dentist because it was closed, so I went and bought some clove oil, VERY potent stuff. I wet the gauze with a little clove oil and water and bit down on it. It was extremely powerful and was very bitter. I left it in for about 20 seconds biting down on it and pulled it out. I swallowed the reminence of it and it was spicy and bitter. Well, after that, I waited about 5 seconds and it atarted to work. All the pain was gone. I recommend it to anyone with dry socket, although it is powerful, it will get the job done better thsn psin meds, which I also took along side of clove oil, like ibuprophen, and applied Tigers Balm to the outside of the face where more of the pain was, and it took away the swelling. You will have to do this a few times a day and clean your teeth before you do this.
Coconut oil in the diet has made life bearable from pain all day and night in numerous spots... Some ugly cavities and some broken crowns and some just seem to have sensitivities.
Gave up getting any more fixes, all the old ones failed and most recent work 2010, new crowns and fillings, ended up causing pain for solid year all day- everyday
12-12 to 4-13 Eat coconut oil in diet EVERYDAY and pain stays away... skip day or two and pain is back with a vengence.

Hi! I had to extract 2 of my upper jaw wisdom teeth in June 2013 as they were next to my sinus membrane n were troubling me in form of giddiness n weakness. Ever since the extraction, my nerves are totally disturbed n I still have d pain of the wound due to d extraction though it is healing slowly. My dentist has said it would take at least a year to heal. In the meantime there aren't any medicines for it. I wanted to know if there are any home remedies which can soothe n heal d nerves faster. Best wishes
After having a very difficult extraction of two wisdom teeth growing sideways, my dental surgeon told me to take pain killers before the freezing came out. Since I don't take pain killers, I sliced a thin piece of garlic and placed on both extraction stitched wounds as the pain became unbearable. First it burned slightly, then the pain lessened so I did not need to take pain killers. I continued to replace with fresh garlic slices for a couple of days. The healing process was also unbelievably fast. The dental surgeon couldn't believe the results.
Back in 1995, I had an awful pus on my gum that was painful, yet it was killing my tooth as well. To kill the pain, I washed my mouth with Listerine mouthwash, then I used a sharp pin as used in tailors. The pin was cleaned with rubbing alcohol, then I pushed the pin into the area of the pus and then pulled out the pin. Next, I squeezed the pus out from opposite side of the gum where the pus was sitting. This forced the pus to come out of the hole that was made by the pin. All of the infection then was gone.
Next, make an appointment to the dentist. According to the dentist, I had to get a root canal job done on that tooth. The root canal job only lasted less than one year. The following year, I had the root canal removed (very bloody procedure)!
As I completely had the next tooth became a bridge job. As to the root canal jobs, it is not worth the expense of pulling out the root canal if the tooth is so old and about to crack into pieces or has been drilled so many times, that it would soon fall apart anyway. Best is to pull that tooth, no root canal, and just do a bridge job or a new denture instead.
Never allow a dentist to implant teeth. This is very dangerous for the jaw bone, which my dentist has informed me when I asked about it. The jaw bone can break or crack from any implanted tooth, and also it can become infected, until death occurs. As new technology is advancing, find a dentist with laser technology rather than the old drilling the teeth as it causes pain, heat and cracks from so much heat and vibration of the drill. One of the best machines now is from Biolase Technology company. There is a search engine of dentists that use their equipment to find the dentist in your area. This is a painless dental technology, not like drilling. Go see it at their website. I am now using this type of dentist, and I can tell you it won't even make you nervous as with the noise of drilling and grinding the teeth the old fashion way. You will be laying down on the dental lounge instead of the old dental chair, no joke.

Magnets for facial area or brain is NOT suggested generally. That is what I read, in this book.
Inflammation, take Bromelain tablet and turmeric are amazing. I took Bromelain and arnica montana and drank aloe vera juice 5 days prior to surgery and I had an easy recovery.
A big flat magnet. Very crucial is to be used only the North pole facing the skin. The magnet should be at least 1/2" tick. Use it as long as necessary, providing that only the north pole side is used!
Natural Remedies to Promote Healing After Wisdom Teeth Extraction
As much as I like to treat health issues as home with diet, herbs, and natural remedies, sometimes the help of a professional is needed. Such was the case with my 18 year old's wisdom teeth. He was having TMJ and a sinus issue caused by his wisdom teeth. We chose an oral surgeon that the dentist we trust recommends. My son had his wisdom teeth out ten days ago and has had an excellent recovery. I thought I would share some ways that we used natural remedies to help his healing along.
First of all I was delighted to see that his discharge instructions from surgery recommended that tea bags (black, as in Lipton) be used if bleeding could not be stopped. I liked the recognition that something as simple as tea was not being improved up by pharmaceuticals, which would have been much more expensive. 30 years ago, I used black tea bags on the sites of wisdom teeth extraction, upon recommendation of my mother and think it contributed to an easy recovery for me.
Secondly, salt water was recommended for rinsing the mouth several times a day. I was so happy that this simple solution was suggested instead of some expensive chemical alternative, and obvious credit was being attributed to its effectiveness.
While my son's teeth were mildly impacted, the surgeon did not think that prescription pain medication would be necessary. He gave me a prescription just in case, but I never even filled it. I know from experience that narcotic pain medications seem to make my children feel badly. I would have filled it if needed but it was never needed.
He was also given a prescription for amoxicillin antibiotics. I didn't fill that either. I am convinced that turmeric works at least as well and likely much better as an antibiotic. I gave him 4 turmeric capsules 4 times a day for several days and then tapered off the amount. Turmeric is also excellent for pain and inflammation.
I did have him hold colloidal silver in his mouth a few times to help prevent infection.
My son had almost no pain in the days following his surgery. He had me look in his mouth the day after surgery. He had no redness. No inflammation. No swelling. The surgical sites looked amazing.
He did have some pain six days after surgery but he had gone to work in the heat and was likely dehydrated. Once he came home and rehydrated the pain went away.
He did need to eat soft foods for a good week. But he had no pain. I did give him a couple of doses of ibuprofen the first day but it probably wasn't even needed. I don't know how much to attribute to an excellent surgeon, how much to credit the general good health and strength of my son, how much to attribute to turmeric, salt water rinses and colloidal silver and how much to attribute to prayer, but they were all in play.
Just my 2 cents on helping wisdom teeth recovery go well.
