General maladies can be among such ailments as a cavity, disease of the gum, presentation of wisdom teeth, a crack in the tooth, disease of the jaw or a root of the tooth that has become exposed.

Among the ailing conditions that lead to the pain and discomfort associated with a toothache, in correlation to a determination in a home remedy for toothache, tooth decay tops the ailments.

What I did for absecced tooth. Take a Q-tip and run water over it. Squeeze excess water out. Then dip it into cayenne pepper and push it into the cavity & around the base of the tooth at the gum line. Add more pepper if it does not begin to burn some. Got Garlic Gel pills at 1000mg minimum and took 2 a in the morning and one before bed. The Cayenne made the pain very tolerable almost immediately after applying it. The cayenne will kill the bacteria almost
as soon as it makes contact and the Garlic Gel pills will
make sure the bacteria will not come back. Be sure to brush teeth and gums after each meal to keep food out of the cavity. If gums are swollen due to abcess put cayenne
on the gum and be ready for an unpleasent burning sensation for a little while. Try not to get the cayenne on your tongue or lips as it will be unpleasent as in hot. The burning will go away in a short time. If you have to spit
go ahead and spit into the sink. The cayenne should be where it needs to be and you may even have a little swelling, and a very small amount of pain the next day. (just noticeable) By noon or so you should have no pain at all. The cavity should stop getting larger at this point as you will have destroyed the bacteria that eats the tooth.
I would put cayenne in the cavity once a week to make sure it kills any bacteria that may begin from food that does not get completely cleaned out each day you eat.
I have been experimenting and have been pain free
for over 2 months at this time. I am going to see how long I can go without going to the dentist. I have read that some cavites can heal if you get the correct nutrition. I suppose I will find out.
Good luck and may God bless you!
