Tooth Abscess Natural Remedies

Ozone

calcified tooth root abcess:

Having never heard of oil pulling, I tried a very expensive alternative method to try and save an upper molar which had a calcified root that was infected and could not successfully be root canaled. The gum was sore and spongy. I signed many release forms before taking injections of ozone in the gums around the tooth. This was preceeded by ozone gas in the mouth, ears and nose and followed by vitamin injections. Six treatments a week apart was recommended. It was painful and painful to pay for-$500 per treatment, but the gum was no longer spongy and painful by the end of the treatment. It was recommended to retreat in six months or so. Unfortunately the ozone dried my saliva glands horribly. And after three plus months there is no improvement in my saliva glands, leaving me with horrible dry mouth.

Now I feel twinges of mild pain in that tooth area as well. I am trying the oil pulling as we speak and we see what happens.

Has anyone else tried similar ozone treatments or does anyone have natural remedies for dry mouth. Thank you. CeeCee

How often should I apply the turmeric paste? So far I'm applying once every 30 minutes and I have felt zero relief. Am I putting it on too often or what? Thank you

Can someone clarify a little? In the first part of the recipe you reference parts, but the rest of the recipe is measurements. Is it 3 tsp.?

Thanks.

Interesting remedy and I'd like to try it. One question though. How long do you leave the mixture in your mouth?


Oil Pulling and Neem Seed Oil
Posted by Ted (Bangkok, Thailand) on 09/10/2007 383 posts

I had one case of a woman who got septicemia like conditions (blood poisoning and the blood becomes dark brown) where the bacteria went so deep that it caused a major fever, and headaches. Chemically speaking a low concentration in the blood of aspirin, was found to eliminate or kill the bacteria. Chemically speaking the acetylsalicylates actually digests the thin bacterium walls which causes the condition (and has a potential as antiviral and antibacteria properties like an antibiotics on the merits of it being able to destroy very thin microbial walls) and it was essential that aspirin was used to wash out the cavities cleaning.

One case the teeth where cavities exist was so black that the oil pulling dissolves the bacterium that resulted in streaming black streaks during the die off, which I think is how oil pulling can kill certain cavity causing bacteria, not all mind you, the bacteria plaque are a bit more difficult to remove. I haven't been able to get neem oil, but the idea that it help somewhat is an interesting finding.

I believe that long term acid saliva is one factor which initiates enamel erosion as well as eating sour foods where potassium I think is what controls the saliva pH, while sodium controls the urinary pH, or extracellular fluids, in some ways. I still need to do further experiments in proving this of course!

Thank you for your contribution!


Warm Salt Water

Warm salt water works at onset of pain, I believe it prevents infection, I have yet to have worse pain after salt water, it just goes away. Hydrogen peroxide is an anticeptic and It works for my husband. As far as the antibiotics, unfortunately many people are allergic to penicillin such as myself as well as kefelx, so there is not a whole lot left that works on abscess tooth. There is e-mycin/biaxin, but they give me horrible stomach cramps. I think natural antibiotics are great, they work better for me. I prefer them over the harsh antibiotics that I am not allergic to.

Also, if you take a lot of antibiotics your body builds an imunity to those antibiotics eventually. That is why diseases, flu's, ect., are getting worse, they are becoming resistant to antibiotics. It also strips away the bio-flora in the lining in your stomach, which can cause a long list of health problems itself, yeast infections, reflux..

however, if it doesnt get better and reoccurs frequently you should not play around with not seeing a dentist, a tooth infection untreated can easily infect the blood stream, causing septicemia, weakening the heart, and could kill you.

Fenugreek

Fenugreek steeped into a tea / mouthwash cured abscessed teeth. I rinsed my mouth and then soaked a gauze pad and placed in in my mouth for an hour at a time and it drew the infection out of my system. Sometimes I had to open a little hole in my gums so it would drain. I had 10 abscessed teeth at one time and did this for many months. It helped me alot as I didn't have any medical coverage to go to a dentist myself. I still to this day recommend this to anyone with the same problem.

So I haven't tried the tea bag thing but I was wondering about poking a hole in the gums.... Does it matter where? What did you use to poke it

If the tooth is fully there I know itll come out the gums but what if my tooth broke and there may be a passage to drain out of, er I hope so at least, is that possible?

How many days did you wait til u poked a hole in it?

How long does it take to heal?

Does it just go away or keep coming back if everything does not come out the first time?

You do not need to poke a hole in your gums, I think it is unnecessary, just use DMSO It is a carrier it will carry whatever you want right into the infected site. Basically 1/2 teaspoon DMSO with whatever sterilizer your using I use MMS or Sea Salt, and 1/8 or 1/4 cup water and I just brush onto my gums and try to not get any on my teeth let it soak in for 20 minutes and rinse

Hi, I was wondering how you used the methods you described... the Colloidal Silver, Manuka honey, and Hydrogen Peroxide.

If you could please share your methods.

Thank you!


Calcium, Magnesium, Vitamin C

I hear what you are taking, but did it work? Was your abscess the type that was an infection at the roots, or was it at the gum line. Just wanted to make sure we were on the same page. Thank you.
