7 years ago, I had a gum infection and resulting toothache, extreme torture. Dentist prescribed anti-biotics & vicodin, but paininfection persisted, thought I would have to lose my back molar. Tried home remedy of garlic compressess directly to area, plus salt water rinses & dental cleanings 3 times a year. This saved the tooth. Then, 2 weeks ago, got the same problem on the other side of my mouth (talk about bad karma). This time, the anti-biotics & vicodan brought no relief at all. It hurt so bad to chew that I was almost in tears. I made up a tincture of tea tree oil, cayenne, peppermint & cloves and applied directly to the area with cotton. Got instant relief within 1 day and all pain gone within 2 days. This will also heal the gums and deep pockets if used on a regular basis. Also, during my conventional treatments, I found that putting regular table salt on the affected area brings some relief if you're stuck at work and can't do the other things right away.
