Can you heal a tooth abscess?
Question: I have one tooth abscess that is pretty active in that it drains (above the 4th top left tooth and the tooth is not showing noticeable signs of problems). I have another less active, abscess above a tooth on the upper right, 5th tooth, which has crumbled with a portion of the root and tooth left there and the 4th tooth having been removed. I have two wisdom teeth which have the root and partial tooth remaining. My question currently is - what do you recommend to heal abscesses?
Answer: These teeth do not sound in very good shape. Make sure that you monitor them closely with your dentist. To clean up an abscess like this you will want to use 3 methods of treatments.
1. Topical treatment to treat the infection and swelling.
2. Body work treatments to support the healing of your body, such as myofascial release, acupuncture, and acupressure.
3. Change your diet to a sugar free diet, and eat a lot of special tooth remineralizing foods.
