What is an abscess?
It is an inflammatory response that leads to cell damage.
It is usually caused by a bacterial infection.
This can cause several symptoms, including:
- Presence of pus.
In case of infection, it is essential to consult a health professional.
A dental abscess is when the abscess is located in the mouth.
Generally, the accumulation of pus is located at the root of a tooth.
If nothing is done, the pain can become unbearable and require the use of a painkiller or anti-inflammatory.
What are the causes?
Dental abscesses originate from a mixture of causes, which can be:
- Emotional injuries.
- Untreated decay.
- Dental intervention.
- Tooth fracture.
- Inadequate diet (especially excessive industrial sugar).
- Exposure to toxic substances.
What to do in case of an abscess?
The first thing to do is to see a dentist.
Then there are some additional options that can be explored.
I can use my felt sense to find out which ones.
Usually, antibiotics are prescribed to clear the infection and ease the pain.
Then, the dentist will propose:
- Drainage of the abscess.
- Extraction of the tooth.
- Tooth devitalization.
- Periodontal surgery.
Behind an abscess are emotional causes, in particular:
- Fear of not making it.
- Fear of not being enough.
- Fear of doing it wrong.
Emotional healing usually leads to self-healing of the body.
I discover how to deal with my emotions.
Once the root causes have been explored, I can stimulate cell regeneration of the tissue.
This can take time, depending on the extent of the lesion.
Rinsing the mouth with sea water helps to:
- Cleanse the infected area.
- Reduce inflammation.
- Nourish with essential trace elements.
A number of medicinal plants are renowned for abscesses:
- Centella asiatica.
- Bay leaf.
- St. John’s wort.
Massaging the gum accelerates blood circulation, to :
- Help evacuate waste products.
- Nourish the cells.
