If there is a tooth abscess with a lot of swelling, you cannot get the tooth pulled until it gets under control. Here is what to do to avoid taking harmful antibiotics and get an abscess under control.
- 3 parts Slippery elm
- 2 parts baking yeast
- 1/3 part cayenne pepper
- 2-3 drops clove essential oil
- Water – to make it a paste consistency
- Garlic clove or garlic capsules-swallow with water
Mix together, add a little water (enough to make a paste). It will be gummy due to the Slippery elm. Pack this mixture around the gum. The Slippery elm will draw out the inflammation. Cayenne stimulates the cells around the tooth to release toxins. Cloves works as a pain remedy, especially in toothache. Hold in the mouth for as much as you can 20-30 minutes and spit in the garbage. Rinse with room temperature water afterwards.
Take a small clove of garlic every two hours, this will resolve the abscess and may actually save your tooth. You may substitute a clove of garlic with garlic capsules or tablets. *Make sure to pick a small clove, the one you can swallow.
Another option is to mince a clove of garlic and swallow it with a glass of buttermilk or with some honey with water afterwards. Try doing that every 2 hours.
The end result should be this consistency. Swishing it all over the mouth is also an option.
