My mouth is full of dental problems- I have 8 abcessed teeth. One bad infection is in one of my front teeth that hurts all the way up under my sinus cavity. I HAVE TO be sedated at the dentist (been this way since I was young- had abusive dentist when I was little girl who caused me alot of pain). NO low-income dental clinics will sedate me and I can't afford a regular dentist/oral surgeon/sedation. I am 43 yo tomorrow and am going to die from these infections in my mouth. Why does no one take a person's anxiety (state of panic with me) seriously? They all think I am exaggerating or lying. It is all about the almighty dollar$$$$$$$. I am very depressed and the more infection I get in my mouth the worse my anxiety gets. I have completely given up and am planning on dying from this- anyone have any sugesstions? I cannot work anymore because no one believes me when I tell them I am sick from the pain and infection in my mouth and can't come to work. I go to the emergency room just to get antibiotics.
which scares you more not being sedated or being in horrible pain and possibly dying? most low income dental offices are on a strict budget and dont have the equipment and medications to have sedation available. maybe you could request a state hearing and explain you need the sedation due to mental illness. this is way over the parameters of anxiety when you get to the point of being unable to work. unfortunately state benefits are being cut way back so you may have to either force youself to go where you can afford the care with out the sedation or do nothing and get progressively worse.
ok you cant work, get state aid, and the dental clinic wont cover the oral surgery fine there is one remaining solution....PULL THEM. it might not be pretty but it will eliminate the infection. dental clinics usually will cover extractions and even if they dont the cost is cheap compared to other solutions. you have some form of income since you arent able to collect aid and you can afford internet so most regular dentists either accept payment plans of care credit. good luck.
Gravity boots or yoga are better than a chiropracter for putting your spine back inline if thats the problem. An aspirin sized amount of calcium powder rubbed on the gums will provide very rapid pain control. Too much at one time will give you headache. Rinse mouth with warm water with teaspoon salt in it or clean seawater if you can get it. Oregano tea either cold or hot can take of infection. Oregano oil is also available. Chose this before taking antibiotics. Place a teaspoon of virgin coconut oil in mouth and swish it around as long as possible also good for dental problems, called oil pulling
Don't pull your teeth out or you'll be more sorry. Abcesses can be relieved with determination. Stop eating and drink fresh green vegetable juices. Eat fresh green cabbage. Blend half a small onion with one stick of celery in a cup of water. Drink slowly, swish around in mouth.
People trained by modern society tend to have doubts about using natural cures. But when the professionals run out of answers, and their answers don't work, the only option is to look elsewhere. Oregano has been determined as the herb with the greatest antibiotic power. Seasoning from the grocery shelf is fine. Bring a pint of water to a boil and trn it off. Place a tablespoon of oregano leaves in it. As soon as cool enough to drink begin sipping it. You can find recommendations for using oregano oil for toothache elsewhere on the net.
Calcium is the primary mineral in all of our physcial processes and it relieves pain. Try rubbing a little on your gums to test it. of course you can take recommended dosages as a supplement and that may help.
Rinsing ones mouth with salt in warm water is recommended by dentists after dental work, especially a pulled tooth.
The reason abcesses showed up in the first place is due to diet. Too much sweet whatr it is. The answer to counteract the sweet is green cabbage, as well as onion juice, and ery other fresh vegetable juice you can think of. If diet is not corrected no amount of dental work can help.
I agree with Tamaran. I also have 8 problem teeth (decay or cavity's) and I'm only 30! I am now seeing the problem is diet/nutrition and vitamin deficiency. I've also read Oregano oil (diluted) helps the pin and stops infection.
So I understand! I also have HUGE anxiety with dentist.
