Tooth Abcsess

My hubby has awful teeth, heck so do I, but his are almost all broken down to the gum and he lost 7 back teeth to an abcsess 5 years ago and almost lost his life.  I had no idea they could move to your brain did you? Anyways he got another abcsess and we have no dental or even medical insurance for him. Stupid state refused to expan medicaid and ACA says $678 a month for him for health insurance with no supplements to help us!!  My friend said to get Olive leaf oil to help with the infection. OMG it worked..I had no idea but I am so keeping that around the house.  The lady at the store gave hubby clove oil too to help with pain and that worked great too though I knew it would.  Hubby is not used to all the natural stuff but getting better at it and boy he is a believer now.  He said so what do your natural friends think about blah blah blah about 6 times yesterday.

Yikes! I had no idea an abcess could be so scary! I'm so glad he found something to help so well. I hope he's taking better care if his teeth and gums now!

He needs all his remaining tooth remnant removed and dentures is what he needs honestly

I'm happy to know it works. I know brewers yeast can help gum swelling and bring in good bacteria. I use it over night on my gums when they start to recede.

I'm so glad it worked! If you inhale any of the bacterial particles into your lungs when you're breathing and you have infected teeth it can kill you too. It's so crazy. I saw that on TV and I never knew that!

YEP his was majorly infected, he didnt need antibiotics this time..now to find a clinic that will pull it for cheap is the big deal

Last time it moved into his sinuses and then started to blind him in one eye, it was moving to his brain so this was terrifying for me
