tooth pain, decayed tooth By: shuddha
November 18 2009
Respected Udaya,

My daughter, 20 years old, studying 3rd year BE, has been having tooth pain off and on. It becomes intense during her semester examinations, or stressed times.

I tried acconite, Acid Flour, chamomila, silica .. The pain is so intense that I need to resort to troublesome drugs like diclofin etc.. along with anti-biotics. Dentist says that RCC is compulsory and their prescription of metrindazole troubles her a lot, along with NSAID drugs.

Can you think of any remedy?

Dear Shuddha,

The tooth ache has to be correlated.
Cause need be looked into. Modalities have to be watched. Thermal factor is very important. Radiating pain has to be correctly watched for nerves involved.

1. Pain worse with hot or cold things. Teeth is black. connected with gluten/lactose intolerance - Staphisagria.

2. With anxiety/fear facial neuraliga from decayed teeth with cavity. Use cottn swab and keep Aconitum Nap Q inside the cavity. Pain will recede within 10 minutes.

3. Infection is certain in root canal. Pain throbbing and radiates upwards towards head, temples and ears. Belladonna 30.

4. After taking warm water in mouth. Not relieved by cold things also. Decayed teeth, pain is maddening. ear is affected. Chamomilla 30.

5,. Better by holding icewater in the mouth. Not able to sleep due to mental activity. Hotflashes. Dysmenorrhea, menses too early and longlasting. Large clots of black blood with Itching. COFFEA CRUDA.

6. Inflamed Gums, loose teeth, Pulsating pain in inflamed gums, Pain in hollow of teeth. Bad odour from mouth, Pyorrhea. Teeth with fillings (mercury). Tendency to open wounds or ulcers. Excess saliva in mouth. Drooling. Crown ofteeth decay. Tooth feels as longer and cannot close the mouth as it is painful when upper jaw touches thelower jaw. Great thirst. MERCURIUS Sol.
Take Mercurious after one or two doses of Thuja 30 or 1M for better results.

7. SPIGELIA ; A VERY IMPORTANT REMEDY. Left sided. Root canal infected. Fifth cranial nerve invlved. Tearing pain in carious teeth extendng to the malar bone of the extended side. Possble numbeness under the lips and affected part (causticum also helpful here particularly when the pain is on right side of the face ). Spigelia patients usually will have left sided headache. There blood flow towards the head is usually scanty. Pressure could be low when nervous or stress leading to headaches. Congestion headaches. Migraines. (all left sided). Palpitation could be there. Tooth ache mostly connected with blood flow and have bearing on heart. Low pulse rate with left sided headaches are strongly indicative of spigelia. Zygoma is affected.

8. Plantago Maor 2X : Great medicine for tooth ache. Use internally andexternally. Usually toothache is relieved within 10 to 15 minutes. It can be inserted in cotton swabs in the cavity. Helpful when there is swelling on cheeks. Teeth is sensitive and sore to touch. Like Mercury teeth feels too long. Ear ache will be there like Chamomilla. Earache (Otalgia) with tooth ache. Profuse flow of saliva like Mercurious. TOOTH ACHE BETTER WHILE EATING. Tooth ache with reflex neuralgia ofeye lids.

9. PHOSPHORUS; 30, 200 -Worse dipping hands contained by cold water; washer woman's toothache. USE IT IN SPLIT DOSES.

10. MAGNESIUM PHOS 6X : Tooth ache better by hot application or hot drinks. Ulceration of gums. Swelling of glands of face, throat, neck and tongue.


12. Rapid decay of teeth, spongy bleeding gums, teeth dark and crumbling. Putrid odour. Female symptms should also be taken into consideration. KREOSOTUM.

13. HEKLA LAVA 3X : Tooth ache in carious teeth or due t abscess of the gum wit swelling.

14. Antim Crudem : Tooth ache in hollow of the teeth with white coated tongue.

15. Tooth ache relieved by holding warm water in the mouth or by pressing the teeth together. Bitter taste in mouth. Yellow stools. China.

16. Worse right side, touch and warmth. Pain in bones of Jaw. and temples. CHRYSANTEMUM 12x.

17. sILICEA : tooth ache worse hot or cold things. Cracking sound in ear on closing of jaw.

`18. Pulsatilla : Swelling right under the earlobes. with or without pain. closing and opening of the jaws difficult. with tooth pain.

Here in this case I think, Bell, Kreo, Hekla Lava, Spigelia, Mercurious, Plantago are the ones which is to be studied more. with best wishes.

Dear Shuddha,
You could also look into Bach Flower Remedies. does she cry out loud when she has this pain? If yes, then give Cherry Plum. (I have had several experiences with this remedy - whenever I had pains that made me scream and yell - a single dose of Cherry Plum worked like a charm.)

As udaya has rightly pointed out (along with a scholarly presentation of the various remedies), you need to take a look at the modalities - the causes etc. when is it worse? when is it better? the thermals? and the girl's temperament / mood during such painful attacks. this last factor alone can help decide the Bach Flower remedy and give speedy relief. (how does your daughter react to the pain?)

Bach Flower remedies can be especially helpful since you mention that the problem appears when she is under stress.

Thanks to user123, rams and my dear Udaya.

Sileca 6c worked for her. She is out of the pain problem. She does not cry out in pain. As I could see, and then buy remedies, it took more time and in the meanwhile I gave cephelaxin and diclogesic and she could write her examinations well. The problem is not getting pass marks, she wants to retain her No 1 position. In life number 1 position and number 'n' position are highly reversible and usually misread. We cannot make children understand !! (Though I am not sure how much I have understood and put to practice!!!)

Monday RCC is scheduled with a local dentist. I think arnica 6c, given in advance would reduce the pain during rcc.
Thanks once again to all!

One Touch Home Electrolysis Provides a Solution
We all have hair on our bodies; often this hair cause us great embarrassment whether is it unsightly hair growing on the upper lip, or hair showing around our bikini line, the eyebrows that insist on forming a unibrow, in fact, anyplace on our bodies where hair is unwanted and cause us embarrassment or frustration. The One Touch Home Electrolysis system was designed to eliminate the unsightly hair permanently. What makes the One Touch Home Electrolysis system so popular is its ease of operation.
Explanation Of One Touch Electrolysis Treatment Process
There are a few simple steps to follow to give yourself an electrolysis treatment with the One Touch Home Electrolysis system. First is the preparation of the skin area you want to treat. You use a very mild salt solution for cleaning. You must remember at all times that moisture is of critical importance during an electrolysis treatment. The best is to keep the area you want to treat small; do one square inch at a time. You need to be able to comfortably treat each area without trying to be hasty as will happen if you treat too large an area at once, for it is preferable to do a small area at a time and do it thoroughly and successfully.
When you want to start treatment over a large area such as your legs or the bikini line it is advised that you split the area into sections for treatment. Your patience will pay off in the end for you will minimize the change of inflaming the skin or have the skin become oversensitive. In order for your One Touch Electrolysis treatment to proceed smoothly it is imperative that you keep the area moist at all times. Using a magnifying mirror is a great help to enable you to see perfectly as you go about giving yourself a treatment.
