Dental abscessHi. Am 65 & retired. I have a dental abscess underneath the jaw on left mandible directly under 2nd molar bottom left. Have had no pain in tooth or abscess. Abscess was about 2cm diameter but has now flattened after bursting thru the skin and draining over the past two months. Now has some soft tissue sticking out of it. Am advised that tooth will need to be extracted, but wish to avoid this if at all possible.
Is there any Homeopathic solution for this situation?
Would appreciate any help. Thank you.

SILICEA 12XM 5 TABS THREE TIMES A DAY EVERY DAY.
FEEDBACK AFTER 7 DAYS.
♥ anuj srivastava 6 months agoHi Anuj, Hope you are well.
This is a followup post after taking Silicea 3 times/day for 7 days. Abscess seems to have sunken further into jaw and soft tissue is still protruding out of the skin. No noticeable drainage, but occasional slight bleeding from soft tissue - so overall a good improvement, thank you.
Any suggestions on what I can do about the loose soft tissue sticking out of the abscess? Should I continue with the Silicea ?
Appreciate your kind assistance.
Have a lovely day.

♥ anuj srivastava 6 months agoHi Anuj,
Advice noted. Will now add Hepar Sulph 200 three/day and continue with the Silicea three/day for 4 days.
Thank you. Have a great weekend.
mork 6 months agoHi Anuj, Hope you are well.
Reporting back as 4 days now completed with Sil & Hepar Sulph 200 taken three times a day.
Abscess has flattened out and protruding soft tissue seems to have shrunken slightly which is good news, thanks. No drainage observed. Minor bleeding from soft tissue at times.
Do I continue with this until soft tissue shrinks away completely ?
Not sure if this is related. Have now observed that only at early mornings this tooth [2nd Molar bottom left] directly above the abscess, feels strange. No pain but not able to find words to describe the feeling. A couple of hours later it is normal again and remains so until the next morning.
Many thanks for your kind advice.
Have a lovely day. Regards

♥ anuj srivastava 5 months agoHi Anuj,
Hope you are keeping well. 4th day report back with 1 daily dose of Hepar Sulph & 3 daily doses of Silicea.
Happy to be able to advise that the soft tissue has been progressively shrinking and early morning strange tenderness in 2nd molar is now less pronounced. No drain noticed in abscess. Soft tissue occasionally releases a little blood. DFo I continue with the same again ?
Appreciate all your kind advice.
Have a lovely day. Regards.

♥ anuj srivastava 5 months agoHi Anuj.
Hope you are keeping well. This is just for your information as my previously scheduled follow-up medical review appointment had come up and took place today.
Update is as follows :- Today’s x-ray confirmed an infection just below the root of the 2nd molar [bottom left] tooth which is directly above this abscess. Was again advised this tooth is possibly dead and although abscess has flattened out & soft tissue is shrinking this will not go away unless the tooth is extracted.
Am continuing with Hepar Sulph [once/2 days] & Sil [3/day] for 4 days and as only two days on this have elapsed will revert with update at end of the 4 days. Hopefully the Homeopathic option with your kind assistance will cure the infection and save the tooth.
Many thanks. Have a lovely weekend. regards
