If you are unfortunate enough - like myself - to have an abcessed cracked molar (or tooth) but are unable to go to the dentist to have it taken care of, here's what I found to be very helpfull.

You need:

- 1 small water glass
- 1 pair of pointy tweezers
- cotton balls
- salt
- Tea Tree oil

Boil (!!) some water and fill half of the glass. Pour some of the water over the tip of the tweezers to sterilize. Add 1 tsp of salt. Stir until salt is disolved. Add cold water (preferably from store bought water since this is likely to be less germ infested) so it's still hot but drinkable and 1 to 2 drops of Tea Tree oil.
Rinse your mouth - making sure to rinse specifically around the abcessed molar/tooth - and spit out. Repeat this several times and also gurgle in order to kill of any germs in the back of your throat and mouth. Do NOT swallow!!! Leave some water in the glass.

Add some of the boiled water to heat up the salt/Tea Tree solution. Take a small amount of cotton and roll into ball, then place it between the tip of the tweezers. Dip the cotton in the solution and pack your molar/tooth so the cotton comes in contact with the infected area. Use several small packings until your molar/tooth is filled.

If the abcess is on the outside of your molar/tooth (on the gumline) pack the side of your mouth so the cotton stays in place.

Leave the packing anywhere from 1 to 3 hours and then remove it. Repeath the whole procedure several times a day, making sure to rinse your mouth inbetween to get rid of any infected material that drains from the abcess. And trust me, it WILL drain!

Make sure you DO brush your teeth at least twice a day to keep everything clean. Place 1 drop of Tea Tree oil on your toothbrush in addition to the toothpaste. You can do this as well if the abcess has disappeared to lower the risk of any teeth becoming infected again. Rinsing with water and 1-3 drops of tea Tree oil aslo works very preventative.
