My Marine Bro, bout 6 foot 5 at the V.A. dentist.. Needs a tooth pulled.. Little mix up, thought they gave him pain killer.. He don't know what the hell is going on. Dentist comes in, starts yanking..
He came out of that chair, took 10 guys to get his hands off the poor Doctors throat..
Pulling a bad tooth without something to deaden it is doable, they did it before novacaine, but what worries me more is if we get a tooth impacted and theres no antibiotic availible. Folks have died from this. If you pull a tooth that is infected the infection may get into your bloodstream, and your screwed. If you leave it alone the infection will spread, eating away at your jawbone, and eventually spreading to the bloodsteam, screwed this way too. Ramses the great was killed by a friggen bad tooth. When they x-rayed his mummy they found a large void in his jawbone where the infection had done its work. So some home made antibiotics should be high on the list.
Back in the day when I had dental insurance, when I called my Dentist and said I had a toothache, he prescribed antibiotics and a couple days worth of pain pills over the phone and setup an appointment a week later. Knocked the infection down, got rid of the pain, and then he would fill or yank the tooth at the appointment. Lately, the dentists I have seen want to do everything in one visit with no antibiotics at all! Also, my original Dentist always described my aching teeth as being "abscessed" and the cause was the cavity that had allowed the bacteria into the tooth interior. Lately, the Doc described a tooth in the X-Ray as having an "abscess" and the only choices were root canal or removal! How about we try some keflex and amalgam first, Doc?
Yeah I've used the alcohol on a cotton ball trick before. My mother used to do that to/for me when I was a kid. It definitely works.

I do not know about you but I do not want to have my teeth pulled for being lazy. “A cavity, is an infection, bacterial in origin, that causes demineralization and destruction of the hard tissues of the teeth (enamel, dentin and cementum). It is a result of the production of acid by bacterial fermentation of food debris accumulated on the tooth surface.
If demineralization exceeds saliva and other remineralization factors such as from calcium and fluoridated toothpastes, these once hard tissues progressively break down, producing dental caries (cavities, holes in the teeth).”
To solve cavities go to the dentist but if you cant, and you find yourself in a situation say when SHTF this information could help you… read on to see more about the herbal remedies available.

Might be a smart idea to pack away a few cylinders of NO2 (laughing gas) for pain control while ripping out those infected teeth or for field surgery if needed. It can be bought petty cheap in the form of whipped cream whippets on ebay. You will also need a way to dispense it so pick up a refillable whipped cream dispenser while your at it.
