dental absess at root of root canal


A lower left molar, had a mercury filling that cracked and cracked the tooth. A root canal was performed. Tooth never really healed.

A few months later, an abscess formed at the root of the tooth. Shortly thereafter, pus came about.

Went to the dentist who tried to clear out the gutta percha to releive the pressure as the pus had pushed up through the base of the tooth.

Antibiotics are not possible for various reasons, nor are they wanted.

Now, part of the gutta percha is out, not all could be taken out due to pain so dentist put eucalyptol into the space and took some of the gutta percha and some of the pus out.

Now a lot of pressure up through the gums, feels like the tooth will burst, but not a pain, just pressure.

Thinking hepar sulph may cause more harm than good as the pus has already burst a bit and the tooth is closed off. Unsure if staph or merc would help or if I should just go with an external calendula or tea tree tincture.

Thanks, Satya

Hello panther7,

If you had an appendix become so severely diseased, most people would undergo an operation to REMOVE the DEAD organ, so as not to further contaminate the body.
Unfortunately the dental profession don't think like this.
Using an analogy, they would merely 'gold plate' the appendix, => 'root canal'. This is a bizarre and dangerous practice (for the patient). What they do with a root canal is provide a protected environment for anaerobic bacteria to thrive and POISON the host.
What most people are unaware of is that root canals are more HARMFUL then even amalgam fillings, and that is saying something!!

The ONLY sane alternative is to remove the DEAD organ (tooth). If your dentist says a root canal is OK, and the tooth is not dead, to be blunt, he is ignorant and you must seek out a dentist who has your HEALTH as a priority, not merely be concerned with the aesthetics of your tooth.

Once you find a competent dentist, make sure he knows how to remove the periodontal ligament too.
Below are a few links to look at for dental info:-

while I appreciate your fervor, and the time you took to responsd, I don't agree. I have worked with plenty of people to heal organs that were sick and that, in fact, in my opinion, is what homeopathy is about, releasing the layers of illness to allow the body to heal itself. I am not saying pulling a tooth cannot be an option - it is not the only one and I feel those who insist upon it forget the reprecussions of mental, emotional and physical aspects that occur afterwards. We do not live in a perfect time dentistry wise and there are no perfect options. I would not cut off a part of the body thinking all would be well without doing everything I could to heal it first.
God bless you as well.

Hello panther7,

I agree with you that homeopathy is one of the best routes to assist the body in healing itself from most ailments.
There are times when direct 'mechanical' intervention is necessary thou, i.e. if you have a thorn in the foot.
It would be wise to remove the thorn FIRST, then use homeopathic remedies. :-)

This has always been my way of looking at treatment, try and find the CAUSE FIRST, remove it if possible, then try to assist the body to heal. The cause may be many things, i.e. mechanical, emotional, imbalance, etc..

It would be wise to remove the cause first, before trying to assist the body in repairing the damage. Having a continual immune response in the area of a tooth is not good for your overall health. Using homeopathy or Allopathy to mask the symptoms will only drive the ailment deeper, and into other organs.

Below are 3 different modalities
Homeopathy can be described as an 'information' system.
Allopathy can be described as a 'mechanical & chemical' system.
Naturopathy can be described as 'natural substances and methods' system.

I believe it is not wise to practice one modality at the exclusion of the others, an integrative position would be best.
I totally agree with most 'pure' Homeopath's that a large portion of Allopathic medicine is worthless and dangerous, but not all!

When you deal with dental problems, you are dealing with nutritional issues FIRST, then dealing with the resultant mechanical issues secondly. As the tooth has now DIED it IS necessary to remove the dead organ from the body. If not the immune system will be continually challenged.

Please look at the links provided in the previous post, but in the end it is your decision as to what you do. :-)

God Bless,
