Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.

My husband lost a filling in one of his molars and went to the dentist to get it fixed. He was told they would fill it again but in the future he might need a root canal or have it pulled. He was told it would require an oral surgeon because it was close to his sinuses. They also put him on antibiotics.

That worked for awhile but the ache came back around Christmas time. We were out of state so went to a dentist near our daughter and he was told that yes it would probably need a root canal. With the cost difference he opted for pulling the tooth.

Our daughter suggested he try the Thieves oil blend on the tooth and gums. He put a couple of drops neat on the gumline and in the cavity. He couldn't believe how much it helped. The pain was gone and he could eat and sleep!

The dentist office called to set up his appointment to get the tooth pulled and he said he was going to wait. They told him it was so close to Christmas that he would then have to wait until January if he didn't come now but he said "NO".

He kept applying Thieves for awhile and the tooth is now giving him no problems whatsoever.

It made him a believer of the oils! Me too!

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: dental,tooth-/-teeth,toothache — Study 1: "[Oil pulling] would benefit the general population by giving more confidence in the ancient practices, thus preventing tooth decay and loss." Study 2: "Oil pulling therapy has been equally effective like chlorhexidine on halitosis and organisms, associated with halitosis." Study 3: "The oil pulling therapy showed a reduction in the plaque index, modified gingival scores, and total colony count of aerobic microorganisms in the plaque of adolescents with plaque-induced gingivitis." Study 4: "Oil pulling can be used as an effective preventive adjunct in maintaining and improving oral health." Study 5: "The myth that the effect of oil-pulling therapy on oral health was just a placebo effect has been broken, and there are clear indications of possible saponification and emulsification process, which enhances its mechanical cleaning action."Link
2.Associated topics: dental,tooth-/-teeth,toothache — "Both clove and benzocaine gels had significantly lower mean pain scores than placebos. No significant difference was observed between clove and benzocaine regarding pain scores. Clove gel might possess a potential to replace benzocaine as a topical [anesthetic] agent before needle insertion."Link
