Hey Julie Patten, A dental infection is often considered to be the only type of infection the body cannot overcome on it's own. Which is kind of a bummer.... But doesn't mean it's completely hopeless. I've seen certain types of aloe solutions mixed with sea salt help on occasion

I can't afford a dentist. I have been rinsing with peroxide and a tiny bit if listerine-type mouth wash. While I'm awake the best way to avert the pain is taking a bit of ice water and holding it for a couple of minutes every 10 min or so.

Juli Put 2cloves under the affected teeth try to press between upper and lower teeth and drooled all dirty water in sink. You will feel relief eith in few minutes but kerp holding clove tightly for few minutes.

the affected teeth are on the lower right side of my mouth, how do I put something under them?

Julie Katz 3 years

do you know the type of infection? Gum? Abcess? Periapical? İf gum, neem oil can be helpful too

Steve Vaughn 3 years

no, I don't absolutely know that its an infection, just that I'm in lots of pain constantly. I've tried both tylenol and advil [separately] it takes a while for either to touch it and then, it doesn't last very long. I think that it would go away after a while... I've been fighting this - to a smaller degree - for months, now, the home remedies I've tried before don't seem to help anymore.

Sara Oneil 3 years

Bonnie Kaufman 3 years

You're welcome. You can use it topically, I put it in my chickens water buckets and it helps keep the parasites out. Use it for my dogs and cats in their water too. Use it on my kids for wounds

Go to a dentist, you can die from an infected tooth

The health department will see you if you have one with dental or even an emergency department or a quick care.

Christa Beasley 3 years

They may see me, but I'll owe $$ and I don't have any gas money left either.

Julie Katz 3 years

In a situation like this you have to weigh the fact you could die. Infection of the teeth can lead to blood poisoning and death. Just popping an abscess under the gum can do that. I know someone who was almost a victim and had to spend a very long time in the hospital for blood poisoning due to putting it off. Had they not been taken against their will they would be dead. It happens.

Look up sepsis

If a nearby hospital has a dental clinic they can help you. You can pay them back even if it's $5/month. A tooth infection can spread to your brain and heart.

Clove will numb the pain and disinfect your mouth. Rinse your mouth with a little baking soda then apply clove oil on the affected tooth and around the gums. You can also use powdered Clove. Leave the clove there till you feel numbness in the affected area. After that periodically rinse your mouth with baking soda & clove oil. Do not take anything that has Sugar. Take Cod Liver Oil and VitaminC. Avoid Peanut and wheat and lentils.

Chew a clove of raw garlic. Swish it as long as you can stand. It's fiery... But it's way better then a tooth infection and your pain will be gone momentarily..

What will happen? Will it melt them or loosen them?

Julie Katz 3 years

julie potential to loosen as it is difficult to determine if there is decay under the filling especially older fillings. Additionally, the reabsorption of mercury is amplified.

I find everytime I Hav infection I start taking multivitamins real quick and within a 2 days it seems to go away

Jennine Higgins
J

Do you normally take them? When you have an infection, do you take mega doses?

Julie Katz 3 years

julie I've suffered for many many years with my teeth to the point I use to get absesses regularly that swell your face up and in absolute agony. Also if I'm really run down and not eating well at all I end up with teeth feeling loose and bleeding gums also several have needed filling for many many years but hate going there as hate needles and Lots can't afford. I'm constantly under high stress and not time for my health most the time being sole carer for my young adult sons with complex disabilities and many times poor diet due to being buisy non stop and on carers pension and high cost living and supporting sons so Hav to go without a lot). I didnt use take them all the time at all and use to end up on antibiotics about 3 to 4 times a year from them that bad couldn't get them seen to till got rid of infection with antibiotics. One time about 6 years ago teeth were really bad thought I'd loose the lot or get poisoning and at same time health was really bad after living in a rental with severe mould problem and out of desperation to regain some health as they thought chronic fatigue at the time I grabbed some from supermarket and started taking them. I noticed my teeth and gums start to clear up within days.. Didn't think too much of it at the time at first but months later same started again, I'd stopped taking them about a week after they'd cleared up just forgot as was feeling better all round. Then about 4 months when my teeth then health declined and couldn't get to doctor I remembered how it helped my teeth so started taking them again and same they cleared up and absess and all pain went away. On and off over the years I've really only taken multivitamins when my teeth got bad which also happened when health was much better and just continued that whenever I started to feel teeth start to ache or felt there was any infection which seemed to get less often. As soon as I feel anything I straight away grab them and take them and bam gone again and then only happen maybe 2ce a year for past 2 or 3 years but gone as soon as I take the vitamins. Hav tried to take them regularly now as having tests for lung and heart disease caused by the mould from old house but havn't had a problem for about 10 months with teeth now. I know they totally stop mine and seem to heal and no pain etc and as I Hav damaged nerves in some teeth from car accident when young and am older (55) I try to take them regularly now or at least a few times a week because I know it keeps mine healed and no trips to dentist. Havn't been to dentist now in about 8 years I think.. Mine are just a general one from supermarket.. Cenovis multivitamins and minerals and I just take 1 a day when they were bad so no I don't increase them, and most of the rest of the time although I try to aim for daily I prob only remember to take them 4 to 5 times a week

Jennine Higgins 3 years

Based on the symptoms you have, I bet the dentist will say you need a root canal - could you afford to have it pulled? There are dental schools that are fairly inexpensive too- where do you live?

Sonja Keys

Honestly, taking just $5 a month - would mean we get that much less fuel or food. We have no savings and are drowning in past-due debt.

My mum said fasting helped her a lot

Zoe Bailey

fasting??? how so?

Julie Katz 3 years

I'll find some before and after photos for you. My mum had a rotten tooth that was disgusting, she fasted for 28 days and drank nothing but apple cider water and one black coffee a day. She said the body has the ability to heal itself but only when your body inside is clean and not already fighting disease. Digesting food is really taxing on the body so when she stopped eating her body could rest and rejuvenate.

Zoe Bailey 3 years

apple cider vingar

Zoe Bailey 3 years

thanks for the idea, but I couldn't stick that out - even for 1 week.

Oil of oregano

Shauna Castle

When the tooth is damaged and afraid to the dentist, try to put a mixture of turmeric powder & sea salt about fifty fifty, put it around the troubled teeth a few moments. Teeth will be easily dislodged without pain in less than 10 days.

Tandu Milligan

I have no intention to pull them

Julie Katz 3 years

Swish warm salt water several times a day. If you have it eat raw garlic.

Lana Maher

You can even swallow the garlic like a pill if you can't stand to chew it... Just cut into small enough pieces that you can swallow with a gulp of water.

Kimberly Crouch 3 years

turmeric, oregano oil, tee tree oil make a paste and with cotton bud coat bad tooth. Inital sting but pain will ease off.

Eddie Huerta

Go to a dentist. Seriously.

Philip Barber

Clove oil to the area affected, then oil pull with coconut oil after each brushing with baking soda applied to your wet tooth brush. This will absolutely help.

I ended up in hospital with a abscess it spred from tooth through the face and into my eye the tooth had to come out please be careful I ended up in hospital for 3 weeks on a major cocktail of drugs

Niamh Tillman

Cbd oil, coconut oil, raw crushed garlic, apple cider vinegar, colidial silver, clove oil, echinacea, golden seal, pink or seal salt make a paste and put it on a bit of cotton wool, it will sting but leave on for at least half an hour, do several times a day as well as take high grade vitc, apple cider vinegar, echinacea, olive leaf extract, golden seal and the Cbd oil. And homeopathic remedy like merc sol but look up for your symptoms or go see a homeopath, I have cured many many tooth infections like this but you much take it seriously and really treat it and watch your diet. And if the swelling is not going down but spreading do go to your dentist or doctor

Nothing, I’m sitting at the dentist right now- bc you can become septic without immediate treatment- infection can travel to brain, blood stream...

Seconding (or thirding, fourthing... Whatever ) oil pulling. Add a drop of clove oil for the pain. Swish with warm salt water several times a day, as well. Both will help with the infection. Go to Amazon and get some Primal Life Organics Dirty Mouth Tooth Powder (I'd get the one with activated charcoal for added detoxing) and Dirty Mouth Gum Sirum, and also some Green Pasture Blue Ice Royal Butter Oil / Fermented Cod Liver Oil Blend capsules. I had nearly completely healed one cavity and reduced another by about 75% using just the Dirty Mouth products, but made the mistake of switching to a different brand... The nearly gone cavity came back slightly, the other with a vengeance along with a new one next door and holes. I have a fresh supply arriving today, along with the supplement. The supplement contains nutrients known to help strengthen bones and teeth, and have read where that alone helped cure cavities. The powder and sirum have also been the best remedy for sensitivity.
