SALT WASH + coconut oil helps! Very very salty warm water oral rinses, 3 times per day. (morning + noon + and night) - and count to 100 while swishing the SALTY warm water in your mouth. The best pain reliever I have found is regular aspirin.
Try this for any tooth or gum pain. Just use 1-2 tbs. of salt, pink or sea salt, dissolve in a glass of water then gargle / swish around in the mouth as along as possible & as needed. It kills the bacteria so the pain and swelling starts going away the first day & 3-4- days healed.
Dental infection, I had a severe infection under a tooth that had a deep filling that killed the nerve in tooth, this tooth infection under it pushed the tooth up so high I couldnt shut my mouth, had my jaw bone throbbing with every heartbeat,
I used sea salt in water swished around in mouth for 10 to 20 minutes several times a day, took the infection down enough I had the tooth extracted w/o antibodies.
For a tooth abscess, swoosh salt water around first. The abscess will subside very quickly. Then mess around with your oils and your herbs. Salt should come first. It works, I can tell you from personal experience. And very quickly.
I'm not sure if this will work for a cyst but it works for a tooth abcess. Rinse your mouth with very salty warm water. With each mouthful, swosh it around for as long as you can stand it. Spit and repeat. I've had a broken tooth with a big hole in it for 3 yrs and will get it taken care of eventually but for now, anytime I get pain and it swells up I rinse with salt water. The salt seems to draw out whatever is in there which will ease the pressure and the pain.
For my tooth abscess, I swished with sea salt and warm water which drew out the infection. Then I used an ice pack this helped with the swelling and kept the infection from spreading. Ice pack 5 min. on 5 min. off. This keeps the infection from spreading into your jaw and cheek further. My dentist said I did the right thing until I could see him. My tooth looked perfectly fine, nice and white and the x-ray showed nothing wrong, but obviously there was an infection. I am taking a prescription by Green Stone antibiotic for a bacterial infection due to tooth abscess and the swelling is down. I am still using the ice pack, also
