Hi fellow sufferers,
I would just like to add this bit of wisdom. During your time o' agony stop taking in all forms of sugar. My research tells me that 18 tsp. of sugar will shut the immune system down for 24 hrs. An average can of non-diet pop is about ten teaspoons. Sugar is in nearly everything, i.e. ketchup, peanut butter, bread, coffee creamer etc. Read all labels. I would not even risk honey and such. You need your immune system able to help you so don't shoot yourself in the foot or the abscess for that matter. Hope this helps you. :)
Hi fellow sufferers,
In reply to the marijuana post, marijuana is beneficial in many places, but it is not recamended for abcesses, as the ''cottonmouth'' one gets from smoking can cause the area of abcess to become a dry socket which is very painful as well.
I see missing a Classic Point
for mouth pain, swelling, and absess do not Pass over Sea Salt rinses Along with peroxide. Sea salt More effectively draws out an infenction then peroxide and Doesnt Further damage the Area like Alcohol, peroxide, and regular table salt can (Iodide destroys healing tissue) Also remember too something that will actually help Get rid of an infenction is Hot tea (hot compresses) are an Age old remedy for killing infenctions however Note it is more painful way to go about it but one of the quickest to help an infenction. Any kind of alcohol, or chemical based rinses should be a temporary solution if used to often they will actually increase the pain.
while my jaw and gum/cheek were swollen i too a sergical hollow point needle mostley used for peircing and inserted a small hole through the gum and swollen part in the mouth and drained manually...though this is not a remedy but only temporary relief of pressure...An oppointment with the dentist to remove the infected tooth or teeth is strongly recommended...yes its painful but nothing a few beers cant help you along your journey...
The best remedy is mixing toothpaste and Anbesol on a toothbrush. Brush you teeth and rise it out with water.
If you are going to use the hyrogen porixide be careful not to swallow any it will kill the bacteria in you digestive track and you will have to eat yogurt and cheese for 5 weeks i had to do this not the best of diets.
First, it is 5:30 am (Mon) I have been on a camping trip all weekend (3-day holiday wkend) When I noticed that my jaw and gumline were swelling (Fri morn), I did the salt rinse 3-4 times per day and at night, drank a few beers to alleviate. Let me say I woke up every morning in murderous pain.(about 4:30ish) Now I am home with a teabag after rinsing with peroxide all day. As I do have insurance, I intend to remedy this come Tuesday, but the teabag, along with an ice pack is super comforting. THANK YOU and best of luck to all. PS. Sorry to have some on here that are just plain rude. Seems to hurt more than the toothache.
When a person has an abcessed tooth they cannot be given novocaine to numb the pain because the novocaine will be ineffective.
However there is a natural solution for destroying the bacteria that is infecting the tooth.
Using a Q-tip apply some Oil of Oregano around the gum of the infected tooth 2 or 3 times a day until the swelling has gone down and the bacteria has been destroyed
I use Grapefruit Seed Extract. It is one of the most potent antibiotics of all times.. They use it in hospitals.. I still have not removed one bad tooth and I've had it for 4 years. Petrified of dentists.. dont have the money and doctors in dentistry want all money up front.. So, I found out that they use this Grapefruit seed extract long ago to sterilize hosptial equipement and I read about the long standing things it does.. I take 10 drops in 1/2 cup water. Its very very strong.. I take a sip and let it lay on the tooth for many seconds and spit out and repeat.. If you do this until the 1/2 cup is gone, your tooth ache will leave completely and stay that way until you either get another infection, OR you disturb your tooth so much so that you inflame it.. It KILLS Infections of the tooth which infection is usually the source of most of tooth pain... IT WORKS for me 100% of the time.. I know I have most of my tooth missing, the rest of my teeth are great. Its just when this tooth cavity occured I did not have money and the dentists here are like not humane and seeing they are not accoutable and can turn away patients due to them not having money, they in my mind are some of the most cruelest docs out there.. Anyway, Grapefruit Seed Extract is very bitter.. Yes its got a horrible taste.. When you are using it, it will at first hurt like heck for about 20 to 30 minutes, soon after the pain will simply leave.. I have had this work for months and now years.. However, if you so lucky to find a doc to treat you I recommend that if possible to eradicate the entire problem.. The thing to not let happen is do not let infection to set in. Grapefruit Seed Extract kept the pain away and also keeps it free from infection.. Instead of numbing the pain, it kills the source of the pain..
The Red Cross emergency toothaid kit realy works well.
I had a old filling come out and didnt get it fixed at the dentist.It got extremely infected over the holiday weekend.So infected I went to the emergency room and got pain killers.
The red cross kit works beter then the bottle of pills the Dr gave me.
