The agonizing pain of toothache always seems to start at weekends or when you are on holidays and there are no dentists to be found. The pain is usually caused by decay, gum disease, or an abscess.
In the case of an abscess, pus is trapped in a cavity. You can relieve the pressure that this creates by applying hot compresses and washing your mouth out continually with salt water. The release of pus eases the pain. Nonetheless, you should see a dentist.
Toothache has been treated by homeopathy.
Toothache requires detailed specific prescribing of the "right" homeopathic remedy.
Trial and error or shotgun prescribing does not work, and therefore we don't recommend self-medication. In fact, self-medication will complicate the overall symptom picture.
Below are only some of the remedies we may prescribe, please note how important the individual symptom picture is. Only when all symptoms, aggravation or amelioration are taken into consideration can a specific homeopathic emedy be selected.
A further consideration is given to the potency of the remedy.

|Belladonna - These abscesses tend to come up very quickly and you should use Belladonna early on in their development. The area looks red, hot and swollen, your mouth feels dry and the tooth throbs painfully.|
|Hepar sulph - The pain feels like sharp splinters and is very sensitive to touch and to cold air. An abscess needing this remedy will be very septic, slow to heal, and may ooze thick, yellow, foul smelling pus. You will feel cold, irritable and very bad tempered.|
|Mercurius - Your gums feel very sore and painful and will probably bleed. The pain is worse at night and it feels as though a lot of pus is present. You are thirsty, have more saliva than usual, and your breath smells bad.|
|Silica - This is a good remedy to try when the abscess will not come to a head or is slow to heal. The onset is also slow. Silica teeth are often not in very good condition and you may already have sepsis, caries and discolouring.|
