In a few days I have to have a molar out. The pain was so excruciating these last couple of nights impossible to rest until a friend brought me Umeboshi plums to put on the infected tooth. Totally bearable and then the pain very quickly disappeared.
Another friend then brought a tiny sheet of Propolis to put round the tooth. It stays there like chewing gum and is also brilliant- absolute anaesthesia. These 2 remedies should NOT be used at the same time or one immediately after the other.
warm salt water is the only thing that has given immediate relief to the pain of my wisdom tooth coming in. warm tap water and sea salt.
