I had a swollen area right under tooth # 22-the eye tooth on my left, lower jaw. This tooth was hurting me so much, I had to walk around with cotton balls soaked in various essential oils, such as Peppermint, Clove, Thieves, and Abundance. These oils helped keep the pain away for awhile. I had to change to fresh cotton balls at night, and it helped as well. One night however, the pain became so intense, I couldn't sleep. The cotton balls weren't working like they had before, especially since I had run out of Clove, and Thieves, and Abundance, Melrose, and Peppermint. I was using other oils and they weren't helping much.
I had to work the next day and was exhausted from no sleep. To make matters worse, we had to fly out to Texas, from Florida, to visit my two sons, daughters in law, and grandson. I was in no mood, for visiting, or being around people and being cheerful. It was memorial day weekend, so I suffered with tooth pain all that four day weekend, since every dentist office in Fort Worth was closed.
I finally got in to see a dentist four days later, and he referred me to an oral surgeon for an emergency tooth extraction under general anesthesia. The oral surgeon wanted to take the tooth out the following morning. Unfortunately, we had a room reservation made by our son and daughter in law, to celebrate our wedding aniversary. The oral surgery dentist agreed to postpone the extraction for one more day. I was going to be put under general anesthesia, and be pumped full of drugs, something i am totally against!
I called a non-Young Living person who is knowlegable about natural healing, to see if he had any suggestions or information about tooth decay, and tooth pain. He did: Brush your teeth with Oregano Oil on your toothbrush! I know how nasty Oregano Oil can taste, but with my pain, and the apparent infection, I did not care how bad it was. I started brushing my teeth with Oregano Oil, on top of Dentarome Plus toothpaste, plus I started using Dentarome Mouthwash to chase it. After that, I would swallow this mixture. Ever since then, the pain has vanished, and hasn't come back since.
The swelling at the bottom of the tooth is still there, but significantly reduced. I can eat on that side of my mouth with no problems. Hot and cold does not bother me like it used to. My dentist in Florida said that the nerve is dead, which is why I have no pain. I still feel the tooth, like my other teeth though. It is not numb, and feels fine. My wife and a friend stated that the tooth, and area below it looks better than it did before. I think so too.
I am still not out of the woods with that tooth, but it has not hurt me in 5 weeks. Notice that I still have the tooth, despite the fact that I was scheduled for emergency tooth extraction well over a month ago!
