Hi all, It was Friday evening when one of my front teeth (tooth #7) began to ache. It was a throbbing pain. It was 8 out of 10 level pain. Here I was right before a long 4th of July weekend and my tooth hurts a lot. Knowing my dentist was most likely away until Wednesday, the last thing I wanted to do was to see a different dentist. For that matter, as much as I like my dentists, to see a dentist at all! Was it TMS or something else? I had been eating a lot of summer fruits: figs, watermelons, even dried apricots. This was much more carbs that I usually eat. Could this be why? So, the first thing I did was to eliminate all fruits and carbs out of my diet. Additionally, I placed ½ teaspoon of colloid silver in my mouth and held it on my tooth for a few minutes. Colloidal silver is a powerful antibiotic and if any of my pain was due to bacterial activity, I hoped silver would stop that. I could not sleep well because of a toothache but by Saturday afternoon I noticed some improvement in the level of pain and sensitivity. I continued to avoid carbs and place the silver on my tooth every 1/2 hour or so. By Sunday, the pain was down to a 3 out of 10 and by Monday it was gone. So here I am on July 4th and I am celebrating my freedom from a toothache! But seriously, was this TMS or too many sweets or bacterial activity? Not sure, but I am glad that for now it is gone. I hope this will bring you relief if you are ever in a similar situation and need relief from a toothache without medications. Happy 4th everyone!
