Tooth abscess - Retreated Root Canal

Had a root canal retreated for the second time because of tooth abscess.
Had a gum surgery as well to clean the root area from abscess. After one year from surgery Abscess has come back. I don't feel like doing a third root canal, plus removing the crown. Tooth is sensitive to touch. No abscess drainage at all. Small but sharp pain. X-Ray shows clearly that tip of the root is infected. Have been taking Silicea 30X for 4 days now as indicated on the label, 4 pallets three times a day. I'm afraid because of no drainage pressure is building on the tooth from Silicea. I have been taking liquid drops of Echinacea and Goldenseal, three times a day 30 drops. No improvement. Please help!!!!

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Please take hekla lava 6 in the morning and evening for 5 days and see whether it helps.

Thanks for your suggestion.
I have tried Hekla Lava as you advised.
Tooth feels a little better now.
It feels like there is a little improvement.
When i touch it still feels soft. Pain has stopped.
I plan to take an X-ray and see if there is visible improvement.
Any other suggestion??? Should I continue with hekla lava? Or should I stop taking it and move to something else? Thanks

i hope that you have taken hekla lava 6 in the morning and evening for 5 days. Now please take it only in the evening for another 5 days and see how it affects.
kadwa last decade
I took twice a day, morning and evening Hekla lava 6. As a dose i took 5 round pills at a time.
Hope that is the correct dosage as written on the bottle.
I will try 5 more evenings.

You may take 5 pills. I advise 2 pills as it costs less!! Dose size doesn't matter in homeopathy.

I took 5 more days the hekla lava dose. I had the xray done today. None to Little improvement. The infection looks almost the same. There is no drainage because the infection is at the root of the tooth. The dentist told me that the tooth is ok. The filling of the root is good. But keeping the infection in the gum is not a good idea..... Before I can think of another intervention, I would like to try other remedies if there are any.
Please let me know if there are any other options. Thanks

There was some pain before taking Hekla lava and there was sensitiveness to touch, whether it has come back?
kadwa last decade
Apart from random pain during the day, not very intense; for the most part pain is gone. Tooth is still sensitive to touch. Xray shows the infection still.
There is no drainage of the abscess.

If dr. Kadwa agrees please take Myristica-200 (5 drops morning and afternoon) and Staph-200 at night for 4 days and post response.

Mahfoozurrehman last decade
Please follow Dr Mehfooz and report back. Myristica is a good suggestion. Dr Mehfooz likes alternating two remedies. Many do so but they don't suggest such regimens on forums to avoid hot discussions.
kadwa last decade
You can try Allium Sat Q 30 drops 3 times a day
jerryacu last decade
Please explain the commercial name for:

Allium Sat Q

Because I cant find it with this name. I found the mystica 200
Please advice.
altinluli last decade
Staphysagria 200x

Allium Sativum Q is actually a mother tincture. It is the tincture of Garlic.

As tooth abcesses are ver often due to an infection Garlic can treat it. You can also try raw Garlic. Pound/smash one small clove and put in a glass of water and swallow/drink it. Do this every 2 or 3 hors until pain stops.
jerryacu last decade
Doctor Mahfooz suggested Staphysagria 200C not 200X.
kadwa last decade

Follow Dr. Mahfooz advise then.

Garlic is contraindicated in patients who have an allergic reaction to Garlic.

Garlic is also contraindicated in those who are on Allopathy blood thinners like Aspirin, Warfarin, etc.

Patients who have a history of gastric ulcers aslo shold not take Garlic.

If you don't fall into any of the above groups of patients then it is quite safe to take raw Garlic.

Please let us know your progress.

AS the tooth has become sensitive to touch, Pl think of Hepar Sulph-200 (200C) 6 pills 2 times every day with 10 days treatment
