Homeopathic Remedies for Toothache

sculptureHomeopathy offers a wide range of remedies which are able to help for gum boils, inflamed, bleeding gums and teething. Dulling the pain in tooth decay is only a first aid of course.
If you have the time and persistence try to select the right remedy fitting your state and actual pattern of pain.

Homeopathic remedies for sudden tooth pain and teething:

ACONITE (Aconitum napellus) C30: Sudden onset of tearing, unbearable pain, after exposure of strong, cold wind (e.g. boat-trip on high see). Cheeks hot and red. Patient very restless, fearful nearly in a panicky state.

BELLADONNA (Atropa belladonna) C30: The next stage of the inflammation after Aconite. Sudden onset of throbbing, shooting strong pain often right sided and after getting head wet. Better for warmth and lying head high. Face is hot, dark red or red in spots and swollen. Patient is restless, excitable and a bit confused.


CHAMOMILLA (Matricaria chamomilla) C30: Best teething remedy for children. Child is intensely irritable, violent, cries angrily, has to be carried constantly. Pain is unbearable, maddening, kid cries out in sleep. Better for cold and moving constantly; worse for warmth and pressure. It is often accompanied by diarrhea. Child may have at the same time one cheek hot and red, the other side cold and pale. (It is good for wisdom teething as well.)

(Coffea cruda) C30: Shooting toothache, screaming with pain. The pains are erased by holding cold water (especially ice-cold water) in the mouth, but they return again as soon as the water warms up. Worse for hot food and drinks, heat and chewing. Patient is very excitable and fearful.

MAGNESIA PHOSPHORICA (Magnesium phosphate) C30: Neuralgic, strong, shooting pains better for heat, hot water in mouth, warm compresses. Anything cold (air, drinks, food and water) aggravates the pains, and warmth in almost any shape or form helps them.
Good for sensitive teeth after dental treatment.

Homeopathic remedies for gum boil and gum disease:

HEPAR SULPHURIS (Calcium sulphide) C12: This remedy is for the later stage of an inflammation, when a boil is being formed. It is indicated at the swollen, painful stage, before the abscess has opened and may abort the suppurativ process. Gum is very sensitive, bleeding, least touch or coldness causes pain. Patient is irritable, impulsive and angry.

MERCURIUS SOLUBILIS (Ammonio-nitrate of mercury) C12: It is an excellent remedy for gingivitis: swollen, inflamed, bleeding, painful gums, ulcers, abscess in the initial stage. Lots of saliva is produced. Breath is offensive and teeth may be loose. Metallic taste in mouth.

PYROGEN (Pyrogenium) C12: Useful in severe oral infection, ulcers, spongy gums, pus around roots of teeth, rotten-smelling breath. Teeth loose, very sensitive and painful.

Dissolve 2-3 pills under your tongue. 

In sudden toothache one dose of the right remedy in C30 potency must bring marked improvement. It is allowed to repeat the dose if pain is stronger again. See a dentist urgently!

The treatment of gingivitis needs more time. Take the chosen remedy in potency C12 1-2 times a day for a week. You have to see a definite improvement after a week, if the remedy was correct. For long term use take the well selected remedy 2 times a week.
