YES!!! I can attest to the charcoal for tooth pain, too! Had a scale 9 pain one night before I could get to a dentist. Excruiciating. Saw this method and happened to have one cap - making a paste - the swelling in my gums subsided after about an hour, pain to tolerable 5. It really pulls the toxins out! SOOOOO gratefull to have found this for my lost filling and exposed nerve! Before taking it, was on my way to extraordinary gum swelling and awful pain. It is my hero!
