For J. Randall - emergency dental fix


Squirrel

J. Randall -

I just heard your story about having an urgent dental problem, and I'd like to share a quick fix which has worked extremely well for me over my 79 years.

I'm a devotee of natural/herbal medicine, and I believe so far, naturals have given me a good decade of life beyond where I'd be without them.

One particularly effective herbal is olive leaf extract, which is more or less powdered olive tree leaves in capsules. The product I've had good luck with is the Natural Factors brand, widely available in health shops.

A doctor introduced me to olive leaf extract as an anti-bacterial and anti-viral medication.

When I have gum or tooth pain, I open up a capsule, and spread the powder generously around the painful area, and I do so when I can keep the powder thus spread undisturbed for a while, as in bed.

Excellent results.

I have no medical training, and naturally, all I can do is share my own experiences, but this product is approved as a supplement. Not particularly expensive.

For what it may be worth.

ADDENDUM: Although olive leaf has provided best long term results, over the years I've used other things which have given some short-term relief, such as:

- toothpaste
- vodka (alcohol)
- Ivory soap (no taste)
- baking soda
- bentonite clay (don't leave it on a very long time)
- activated charcoal (don't leave it on a very long time)

Those ideas may help when the condition is urgent and olive leaf will take some time to get.

Thanks so much for the suggestions. I've been using a similar strategy to get the problem settled down. I used Advil liquid gels plus some codeine to get through the worst of the pain and keep the inflammation down, while applying a combination of essential oils, hydrogen peroxide, Sensodyne repair toothpaste, and flouride booster. That in conjunction with a milder rinse, extra vitamin C, citrus bioflavinoids, and gum massages, seems to have cleared the immediate problem. At one point I also used some over-proof vodka as a rinse ( not consumption ). I'll definitely try adding the olive leaf extract to the mix. Ultimately I'll still need some dental work, but I'm hoping that it can now consist of a filling instead of an extraction.

Believe it or not, in most cases, once the olive leaf settled down what seems to be infection, I have usually not needed dental follow-up.

Part of that may be due to a tip I've been using for the past two decades, that being that after brushing with toothpaste, a chemist (who had bad teeth before developing this tip) urged brushing again with Ivory soap, which has no taste.

Reason: Toothpaste is beneficial but leaves a glycerine film, which protects bacteria. A soap brushing clears away the glycerine. Not a single cavity here for two decades.

ADDENDUM: I've had good results using olive leaf to suppress, especially early in the cycle, colds and flu. Olive leaf is said to be anti-viral, and this experience suggests that may be the case.

Just wanted to update the suggestion to use olive leaf extract (powder, in capsules) to suppress dental pain. I'm not a doctor or dentist - what I post are my personal experiences and the results, not medical/dental advice.

Recently, I had a rather intense instance of pain in both my upper and lower left, rear jaw areas. This seemed to be an instance where a cold or flu bug had "settled" there and was causing trouble, based on symptoms elsewhere.

Smearing a mix of olive leaf powder and saliva on the area was NOT effective.

So I cut open a tea bag, and emptied the tea.

I poured the 500 mg contents of an olive leaf capsule (Natural Factors brand) into the tea bag, and rolled it into a small cylinder.

I inserted the olive-leaf bag against my upper left rear gum for maybe 3/4 of an hour, then moved it to my lower left rear gum for another 3/4 of an hour.

This time, the increased concentration of olive leaf powder against the painful areas, for an extended time period, did nullify the pain.

My other "cold or flu bug" symptoms continued, but a mix of anti-viral herbals (vitamin C multi-plant-form, Allimax (garlic allicin extract), oregano extract, and more olive leaf) has been effective against the general symptoms.

This experience report, again, shows a way to more intensively apply olive leaf powder in cases of increased dental pain.

Thank you for offering your formulas. I also use herbs, nutritional supplements, antibiotics, whatever seems to do the job. Things have settled down now, but I'm going to keep your recipes in my back pocket for future use. I have a feeling they will be useful.
