Dental Surgery Relief

1.Extraction- Make a pad of the right size, soak with aloe gel from aloe plant, fold into a trough, fill with gel, fit over hole and clamp gently with teeth. What happens is, the gel squishes out the blood, goes into the hole, stops the bleeding and Prevents the Pain. I had three teeth in a row removed, used a aloe gel pad, and when the freezing came out there was no distracting pain, just soreness, only if I touched. Rinse mouth and replace pad when needed. I used three pads in three hours. The bleeding stopped and there was no pain, so I rinsed with baking soda to get a nice clean mouth. Surgery was completed at 4 pm, at 8 pm I popped and ate some popcorn and had a beer, and watched a movie on T.V. No problems then or since.

If you are suffering from unbearable toothache, I recommend NyQuil. Two or three of the green liquid gels. They kick in within 30 minutes. As soon as they do, drink some soup to keep your stomach from getting beat up by the NyQuil, and go off to bed. You'll get about 4 1/2 hours pain free sleep. Enough to get you through the remainder of the night and closer to your emergency dental appointment the next morning.

I had bad teeth my whole life. I am a a seasoned veteran of some excruciating toothache. The kind when you are almost ready to grab a pair of pliers and yank it out to stop the pain. Thankfully, after many rootcanals, bridges and $$, mine are all fixed.

Toothache Remedy

My toothache was so bad that it hurt my ears and curled my toes. I've never known any pain that compares to a severe toothache

My cure is to rinse with a little warm water mixed with ALOT of sea salt. Rinse everytime you have the pain. The pain will cease immediately. After a couple of days, the pain is completely gone. The sea salt will also draw out any infection that may be in the root or gums.

I also make a sea salt brine or thick paste with sea salt and rub it all over the sore tooth, gums and in between the teeth. The salt particles will fill in any holes or sore spots in the tooth itself. Try this it works!
