i was sitting at the hosptial tonight waitin to be seen over my broken tooth after trying everything that i could think of an older gentle man told me when i got home swish warm salt water i tried it instant relief
I tried the sea salt water rinse, with tepid or slightly warm water, as antibiotics take awhile to decrease the infection. Next, I used my rinse for dry mouth. The tooth calmed down and witin 15 minutes, the swelling and pain subsided.
I can now make a good decision about what dentist I need to go to without being in pain.
Note: If only have salt, it works also for a rinse.
Just wanted to give my feedback....I also did not have money to go see a dentist and got an abscess from my wisdom teeth cutting trough gums and believe me i am very hygienic,when it comes to my teeth but alas started getting an abscess. So i read on this website about garlic and so I tried and it did burn and the thought that I am making it worse went trough my mind because it did hurt and did swell up a little more!! But now its about an hour later and the swelling and pain is almost gone!!(P.S I used minced garlic but put the oil on a piece of cotton and bit on it)
Jesus. I'm sorry to hear all the suffering from all the people here, but you really should all get to a dentist. Untreated tooth infections are very serious. Among other things they can lead to problems with your heart that will be WAY more expensive than getting a tooth filled or pulled. Not to mention the fact that it can kill you.
put a rag under hot water until completely saturated. then apply to the cheek on the side of the tooth. as long as it is hot and on the tooth it will ease the pain
Qiuck relief. mix kinda cool water with a little mouth wash add some rubbed sage, salt, pepper, and any kind of steak seasoning. it might make ur mouth a little warm but the relief is well worth it
I had a bad gum infection last year didn't want to go to the dentist cuz I have dentaphobia. A friend told me about a natural antibiotic. It was Tawny Port wine and you can buy it in some grocery stores...I couldn't find it in the local wine stores. You rinse your mouth with it and try to hold in on the infected area as long as you can. Spit it out if you want, lol. Cleared my infection up quickly. I have another infection and going to buy some today.
Apply to the area of the tooth it provides some form of short term pain relief.
Relieves pain through the analgesic contained in the product, Reduces the swelling through its anti-inflammatory properties, Helps to fight infection via the antibacterial which helps kill bacteria. As well as take anti-imflammatory/ibuprofen
this is a follow up from this morning having used raw garlic and sea salt to reduce the abscess and stop the pain. As my day wore on, I found using a gauze pad on the area pulled out the fluid (pus). I let that stay until it felt like it had drained enough. Continuing with salt water rinses and the Vit C and aged Garlic caps. Also had raw garlic in my salad/lunch. It is important to keep with the routine until completely healed if you're going to avoid the dentist. Note: if you have a heart condition, I'd head for the dentist if I had to clean his floors in trade. Not a good combo for longevity. There is a neural connection between the gum cavity and the pericardium surrounding the heart. Google that if you want details.
I read 4 pages and concluded salt and garlic, vit C and aged garlic pills got the best reviews and I had all items at home. I applied a slice of garlic to the abcess. Had to remove quickly as it burned but did it again 2 more times until the sting disappeared. Then I switched to sea salt (not table salt!). I took 2,000 mg of Vit C and 2 aged garlic capsules. That was late last evening. Woke up this morning and all swelling and pain gone! Thanks everyone:-) BTW, the abcess was under the anchor tooth of a bridge. The notion that it had to be removed was a nightmare which is why I resorted to home remedy - not to mention the expense!
