I don't have any pain but I May just be curing my absess . Or, gum infection. It Was red before; now it's pale pink and the bump is smaller?
I would not be experimenting if I were in pain. My treatment is 3 fold:
I bought Clenzology, a liquid of essential oils in a very small brown glass dropper bottle. I put 3 drops of it on my toothbrush. The next thing I do is use one of those expensive Water Pic appliances w/magnets inside of it.
I also rub bee Propolis on it and take Oil of Oregano gelcaps & vitamins daily.
It seems to be working. I'd much rather ATTEMPT to cure it myself then subject it to more trauma in the dentist's chair. It may be risking pain and/or an extraction to get the root scaled & planed after a root canal. Besides, I've never heard of anyone curing one themselves so it's a challenge
If it gets red again and bigger I'll definitely go back to my dentist for scaling and root planing
I feel that if you can cure Other things then why not a gum absess? Why does IT have to be relegated to gum surgery?? Is this a con job??
