Tooth Abscess Natural Remedies

Calcium, Magnesium, Vitamin C

I'm writing in response to Calcium, magnesium helping toothaches or abceses. I too have found cal-mag very effective in reducing tooth pain. I've been taking cal-mag for almost 20 years with good results. When I don't take cal-mag for a week or so my tooth begins hurting and when I take the cal-mag regularly I have few tooth problems.

In the past few months I have had to take 10-12 large cal-mag soft gels to help my teeth. I think that I became resistant to the rock mineral and oyster shell based cal-mag. has caused me to have very loose stools.

A helpful clerk at a health food store showed me natural cal-mag made from seaweeds. So far it's fantastic. I only have to take 3 small tablets with perfect results. No tooth pain! No loose stools! Maybe it will work for you too.

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.

Tooth abcess and Alkalizing diet For Susan 3/3/08. I don't take medication. So I did some research and found a cure for my abcess tooth. All day long I took Calcium, Magnesium, and Vitamin C.... I would take these pills or liquid hourly. In about 18 hours swelling was gone. (The exact amount I took, sorry can't say for sure.) Once swelling goes down get back to Dentist. Alkalizing your body. The best and most healthy way is through a vegan diet. Raw fruits and vegs. This diet also heals most disease.... Good Health

Cashews

I have found that the anacardic acids in raw cashew nuts and maybe mangoes do an excellent job of curing an abscess from gram positive bacteria, which are the most prevalent cause of tooth decay and tooth aches. It is conceivable that mango fruits may have sufficient anacardic acids as well. You may see my article on this subject at; http://charles_w.tripod.com/tooth.html. It is also discussed briefly in the 2006 edition of Medical Hypotheses, 65; 289-292.

You may feel free to use any information in that URL without concern over copyright.

I would like to urge you to explore making these medicines available in the pure form from pharmacies. This would be especially valuable since these medicines would probably prove to be valuable against other gram positive diseases such as acne, leprosy, streptococci, Chlamydia trachomatis, and maybe even tuberculosis as well.

Sincerely, Charles Weber

I have used cashews for 11 years to control a cracked wisdom tooth. It did get abscessed when I got lazy about 4 years ago. A couple cashews chewed up morning and night to control it (do not brush the nutty Film off)... Then 3 or 4 times a day when it abcessed and it was back to normal in less than a week. But duh! Limit sweets and brush after eating the stuff... A candy jag is what got mine abscessed.

This year I discovered that cashews could get rid of my ulcer. Dr OZ pointed out that h-pylori was affected by cashew products. So after my Dr. Couldn't verify the h-pylori I tried 2 cashews every waking hour for 2 weeks. After the third day the pain was much less but I stuck with it for 2 weeks. I did a repeat of 2 weeks after a week off just to be sure. 4 months later feeling great! My friend who also had h-pylori was tested 4 times before diagnosis. She suffered a lot taking the antibiotics for it and still has A painful gut 6 months later... Hmmm... After 2 years of suffering I am pain free!! I love my cashews!! I use the "raw" ones too.


Castor Oil

Castor oil takes away pain and swelling from my tooth abscess.

I have had a long-standing problem with a tooth abscess made me miserable. My lower and upper jaw were throbbing and tender. My glands on that side of my neck were swollen and tender, and the pain went up into my sinuses.

I had experienced the pain relieving properties of castor oil before, on my arthritic joints, and thought I would try it on my sore jaw. I gently rubbed a little castor oil all over the sore area of my face and neck. I warmed the oil first, to make it easier to spread. Within 30 - 40 minutes the pain was much less, within another 20 minutes or so, it was completely gone. I applied a little more oil before bed, and put an old towel on my pillow to protect the bed linen.

When I awoke, I was still completely pain free. The swollen glands were back to normal and the facial swelling was gone.

The abscess flares up now and then. At the first sign of discomfort I apply the castor oil and the abscess never gets too painful at all.


Cayenne

FORGET THAT ROOT CANAL & SUPER SORE SWOLLEN JAW!

Abscess tooth WITH SUPER SORE swollen jaw.

This recipe is famous for getting that abscess down (even beneath a crown tooth)

3 parts Slippery Elm, 2 parts baking yeast, 4 drops cloves, 1/3 teaspoon cayenne pepper, and open two activated charcoal capsules and mix..

Add a little water enough to make a paste. It will be gummy due to the slippery elm. Then pack this mixture around the gum. The slippery elm, and charcoal, draws out the inflammation, the cayenne stimulates the cells around the tooth to release toxins and the cloves are added as a pain remedy, especially toothache. repeat every three to four hours as needed.

NEXT: Back it up by taking two capsules of turmeric in the AM and also two in the PM..TILL SWELING AND PAIN GO AWAY.

MAN MY TOOTH WAS SO SORE THAT I COULD NOT CLOSE MY MOUTH (ate soup and mash potato's) AND (DAY ONE) WITHIN HOURS I GOT SUCH RELIEF.......

AND BY THE END OF (DAY Three) totally healed!

INFECTION HAS NOT REOCCURED FOR OVER TWO YEARS NOW....

THANK THE LORD FOR NATURAL CURES.....

PS: Also now daily as a natural antibiotic and as an immune booster /antioxidant.

I mix one heaping tea-spoon of cayenne pepper into one cup of tomato juice and drink in the am and another cup before bed in the pm..

This great tasting treat will gently purge out your whole system and will enhance your total physical and emotional health...(hey guys it has an effect on us even better than viagra).

PPS: cancer cells under a microscope hate this mix as well!

Best wishes for better health!

Truly we have to thank God for these natural cures. I were having some kind of tooth infection. I check EC found
the remedy you posted, must say it work like a charm since I did not want to call out from work. Had slippery elm bark used that instead of the powder, it worked fine it was instant relief. Going to try the tomato juice and cayenne pepper. Is this store bought juice or fresh press, please let me know?

Cell Salts, Flower Remedies

Posted by Maypeacebewithall (Singapore) on 04/13/2012

I have used cell salt no. 9 Mag Phos to relieve my mum's and my brother's toothache a few times. I crushed the tablet in some water and asked them to drink and hold it in the area of their tooth pain. Swallow it after a few minutes. The tooth pain subsided within minutes, sometimes as fast as when holding the solution in their month.

Once my brother had an excruciating tooth pain which shoot up to his head. He said that your tears will just rolled down automatically from the intensity of the pain. I dropped a few drops of flower essence into his decayed wisdom teeth and set an intention for the flower essence to heal him in his highest good and the severe pain also subsided within minutes. The flower essence I used is made from the painkiller plant.

Lastly, there was another time where I applied Aura Soma Physical Rescue oil to his cheek where his tooth pain was located. I poured some oil onto my palm and just rubbed onto his cheeks. Then, I placed my palms on his cheeks and send healing prayers to his decayed tooth. And his pain also subsided within minutes. Intention and Faith seems to be very important. Combined with the appropriate "tool", it can work miracles! Hope my above experiences can help others.


Chamomile Tea Bag

I have a cavity that is very deep. I also have an abscess tooth. I placed a chamomile tea bag on the area and spit out about a quarter of a cup of saliva. I repeated this with another Tea bag. The pain stopped, the swelling was gone and so was the redness. Instead of getting my tooth pulled or getting a root canal, I am continuing home remedies and just getting my teeth cleaned for now.


Clove oil

I have used clove oil several times for an infected tooth. I live in a very rural area, so there are no stores that carry clove oil. I mix ground cloves and canola oil to make a loose paste. I put the mixture on with a q-tip and within minutes the pain is gone. Usually the swelling along with the pain are gone in a few days after a few applications each day.

Do you moisten the teabag before you use it or use it dry?

EC: It will be more comfortable to moisten the tea bag before you use it.


Colloidal Silver, DMSO

I had a abscessed tooth that was giving me fits. This is what worked for me. 2-3 oz. of very warm water, add 2 tablespoons of 10ppm colloidal silver and only 6 drops of DMSO. Swish this around your bad tooth. I try to keep it in my mouth about 2-3 minutes then spit it out. Keep doing this till you have used all the water mixture. Do this 2 times a day and in 2-3 days the infection and pain will be gone. It really worked for me.

I know this is older, but maybe someone can answer...

I have read several posts about using colloidal silver for abscess teeth and most talk about spitting it out after. Why?

With oil pulling you are drawing out toxins and therefore want to spit, but silver is healthy taken internally as well and this procedure of swishing is not to draw out but rather to deposit the silver in and around the teeth and gums. Even if you do draw out some impurities, the silver is antibiotic and antiseptic anyway.

So, why on earth spit out perfectly good silver?

Thanks

Maybe because some say that colloidal silver can add to heavy metal load in some individuals.

You still need to spit because at this point, it is NOT perfectly good silver anymore. It's contaminated with whatever impurities you are swishing out. If you have a infection, why swallow what leaks out? It's only a tablespoon that you need to swish anyways. Coconut oil and silver serving great to take internally but both, or anything you swallow, should be fresh and not used for oral health first.


Dental Abscess Remedies

Posted by Maddtom (Colorado, Usa) on 07/28/2013 1 posts

Folks, recently discovered not so painful soft "lump" on outside upper back tooth. This tooth has been bothering me for couple of months. Very painful for a couple of weeks and then no pain. I know it will need to come out very soon. Question is: how to mitigate and even eliminate this infection. I pull EVOO at least twice a day and have for more than 6 months. My overall health is excellent (65yrs). Like I said I know this tooth needs to come out and I want to eliminate this abscess before I go in (if possible)... Thanks for any info. ThomasM

MADDTOM from Colorado: I really like posts like yours because I have a lot of experience now with good results re my teeth to pass on. I am a senior with ALL my teeth except one I lost many years ago. Even in that case I should have known better but thanks to EC I have a completely new and far more effective tooth care regimen which empowers me to know what is in my mouth and to keep business away from my health.

Recently I saw a dentist after years and the first thing was that he expectd me to accept fluoride. Then, when I told him that when I was much younger a very well respected dentist who taught a a university, sent a piece of mercury down my gullet, saying:don't swallow it! When I told this dentist about it, He mentioned that it probably "went right through. Hmm! Very casual attitude.

I have now been oil pulling for about two years. At the beginning there was a molar that felt loose and the dentist said it had to come out. Then I found: http--paradisenow.net-healing. That changed everything. Oil pulling had given me a fresh breath daily, a clean and healthy tongue and probably detoxed my system without any trouble. It also fixed the loose tooth more firmly in its socket. I don't like to lose a tooth since it has such an effect on the facial features. Oil pulling had also brightened my teeth somewhat.

However, thanks to the site above, I am now trying to heal a cavity on my front tooth. My gums that had always been a problem, are looking really good and the previously exposed tooth necks are almost all right at the gum line, looking really good.

But now, to heal any cavity, I am using MMS (Jim Humble's website) and wow my teeth are getting actually white. I did not really expect that. I thought my yellow/grey teeth would never but they are really nice looking. I am working on some pockets and to eliminate possible sites of infection. I keep the MMS solution in my mouth for two minutes twice a day. If I forget it once, or I am too tired, I use Xytol in my mouth before falling asleep. Of course, I will not forget my oil pulling as it has an overall effect on the body which may vary with the individual. You will find that present practices of dental care are far from beneficial to ones health and thinking of the sums that have to be surrendered!

Anyway I am taking responsibility for my health and again thanks to EC have initiated more changes to the great improvement of my health. The sites mentioned also deal very well with abscesses and pain.

All the best! Om

Hello, can you tell me what MMS and EC is? I have an abscess that is apparently the result of a root canal from yrs ago. Its not painful but swelled up when I first noticed it. Now that its subsided a bit due to antibiotics I am wondering if I can actually get it healed up with out the recommended surgery thats going to cost 1500.00....

Thanks Chris

EC: MMS is the acronym for Miracle Mineral Solution (a supplement) and EC refers to Earth Clinic!


Dental Treatment

This is an aside from those who posted about treatments for tooth ailments. I go to the local college here in Toronto for hygenic treatment as well as fillings. Because this is a college, the fees are minimal, for the fillings it was $20 per filling. However the appointments are in 3 hour blocks because the students are working on you and have to be constantly evaluated by the instructors. If you have the time, it's a great cost saver.


Dietary Changes, Multiple Remedies

Took my 9 year old daughter to the dentist and come to find out she had a gum abcess and infection in a tooth with a cavity. Of course their first recourse was to put her on antibiotics so they could pull the tooth 1 week later. I refused the antibiotics, nicely, but I still got the dirty look and the "note" on the file. So, my daughter and I were very determined to stop the issue in it's tracks... Just to prove them wrong if nothing else. This isn't for the lazy at heart... it's 7 days of killing an infection and keeping it killed.

First of all, NO sugar. She got whole grain bread maybe once per day, but not at all if we could get away with it, other than that, no grains. Pasturized dairy was cut way back to just cheese on occassion. That means no sodas or juices, water was the drink of the week. Whole, low sugar fruits are okay (apples, berries, melon), and of course veges.

Okay, now for the fun part: once per day she did a rinse of water with baking soda and peroxide (I never really measured it, just put some water - maybe 1/4 cup?? -- in a cup with maybe 1 tsp of baking soda and 1/2 tsp of peroxide or so). Twice per day she did a rinse of a commercial tea tree mouthwash with an extra 4 drops of grapefruit seed extract added. Each rinse is done after brushing the teeth.

Once per day, the infected area was sprayed with 2 squirts of colloidial silver, 10 ppm.

Every day she took supplements of:
Vitamin C, 1000 mg
Vitamin D 10-15, 000 IU
Chelated Zinc 100 mg
Oil of Oregano 45 mg (standardized to 70% carvacrol)
Olive Leaf 310 mg with 40 mg of powdered extract standardized to 18% oleuropein
Krill Oil for Omega 3's
A Garlic supplement for Immune support, though if I could have gotten her to take whole, crushed garlic I would have been happier.
And Alpha Lipoic Acid 100 mg

Definitely believe in leaving nothing to chance.

We started this regimen on a Monday afternoon when she got home from school, and by Wednesday she was totally pain free. The cavity itself lightened in color. We kept it up for the entire week, and by the time she got to the dentist for the extraction... Well, they were surprised. Looked at her file, looked in her mouth, asked her if there was any pain (she replied no, naturally), and then the super sweet assistant actually asked me how we did that. They confirmed that she was completely infection and abcess free.

Sorry for the lengthy post, but I always like to see amounts and directions... So hopefully this can help someone else :-)

Actually just rinsing with colloidal silver once per hour would have erradicated the infection in the tooth (you could also swallow 1 ounce of "clean" colloidal silver after the rinses), but all of the rest that this woman used for her daughter would be great for cavity PREVENTION.

NOTE: For pain during tooth infection, frequent swishing of peroxide (then spit), helps pain and infection. Do this at least an hour from the colloidal silver.

We are trying your recommendations with the doses changed slightly, seeing that my son is 6. He currently has two abscesses from two teeth that had dental work done on them (fillings) when he was 2. Can you tell me more information about the diet you followed? No grains, no sugar, we have decided to cut out fruit too. Did she just eat lots of veggies? Any grass-fed meat or free range white meat? Eggs? Any raw dairy? I ask this because it seems like the raw dairy makes the abscesses swell up more. Interested to see what worked for your daughter. Thank you!
