I have had an infected lower back molar for a couple weeks--the filling came out a couple years ago and I have never addressed it. I finally went to the dentist for an opinion and he told me the tooth was savable but needed a root canal and a crown for the mere cost of $3000, and would require a referral to another 'dentist' hmmm.. he prescribed me with some amoxicillin and some vicodin. The amoxicillin started working and the unbelievable pain was subsiding the first night. The vicodin does absolutely nothting for me. I literally tried EVERYTHING under the sun to try and get the pain to go away, lots of the things listed in this forum, thank you very much, but nothing worked.. taking 5-6000 mg of ibuprofen a day was helping, but I didn't want to kill my self over this. My best solution that worked for me was to take the advil liquid gel caps--starting with 400 mg and I rinsed as long as I could with listerine. The pain has subsided like no other treatment I have tried over the past couple weeks. How did I find out about this? I consulted a REAL professional at the walgreens! I approached a man with his teeth all broken off and missing and asked him! He told me of this remedy. Who else would know better? I am sitting here eating corn chips at this very moment and 1 hour ago I was almost completely debilitated! Hope this helps, it sure worked for me.

A WORD TO THE WISE

Everyone who is using direct heat, on your abcessed tooth, should be careful; This can be very dangerous. I did the same thing, with an infected tooth, and regretted it dearly!!!! I later found out that heat draws an infection, which can be dangerous if the infection has no way to exit the gums. My face and jaw was so swollen that I could not open my mouth; and my lymp glands were so swollen that I could not swallow. It is best to leave a cold room and sit in a place that is room temperature. Or you can warm you hands and place them over the side of the face that aches, this way you will get the relief of warmth without drawing the infection into you jaw muscles.

On another note, a few drops of tea tree oil, inside the cavity, will stop the pain immediately. However, do not swallow because of the risk of poison. It should hold you until you reach the dentist.

God's blessings to you all:)
