The ABC Homeopathy Forum
Want to avoid a root canal - Help!I recently went to the dentist after many years and was told I had decay in two upper right molars (5 & 6) which required fillings. There had been the odd niggly bit of discomfort in these teeth but no tooth ache. The dentist told me not to leave it as this would lead to root canal treatment. He had taken x-rays to confirm his diagnosis and said my teeth were otherwise in good condition.
When my dentist put the composite fillings in soon after, he said there had been more decay than he realised and to wait and see. A week later, and my teeth are worse than before the filling. I now can't floss between the teeth and so cleaning properly is impossible.
Can anyone suggest any remedies that could heal the decay and prevent me having a root canal? I have not met anyone who has found this treatment successful and don't want to go down the road of extraction/implants/bridges. I have also recovered from 10 years of chronic fatigue so my immune system is not 100%.
