I woke one morning to a sore and painful tooth. As the days went by, the pain increased and I found that I couldn't chew without extreme care not to let my top teeth touch my bottom front tooth where the pain was. Just one tooth. After about the fourth day the pain in the tooth has stopped and has since moved to my gums. My chin is completely sore and it still hurts to chew. Needless to say, I am miserable. I do not know where this originated from. Any ideas? Solutions?

I do not know where this originated from. Any ideas? Solutions?I was like that a while back. I changed my diet and the pain went away completely. I also changed toothpaste. I got one that is more natural.BTW- 4 oz of common toothpaste is enough to kill an infant. Imagine that it does to your mouth membranes.Look into food combining, acid/alkaline diets , inflammation and nightshades, sugar, milk, and wheat avoidance.Be Well.

  • Sorry to say that it sounds like you have an infection and probably need root canal. Have you gone to the dentist? They can take a simple xray to determine if there is an infection. A root canal is not too horrible nowadays, and is needed to save your tooth. Please get this checked asap. Doctor of Oriental Medicine
