Homeopathy is a wonderful support if you have toothache or need to get dental work done. A very dear friend of mine is headed to the dentist today and so I thought I would share with you the advice I sent to him.
While you are waiting to get an appointment, homeopathic remedies can help with pain relief.
- sudden shooting nerve pain, extreme sensitivity to heat and cold, Hypericum 30c /200c
- shooting pains, better for pressure and warmth, Mag phos 30c/ 6x

Before you go to dentist take Arnica 30c or 200c it helps your body deal with the physical trauma.
After you have dental treatment:
- continue to take Arnica 30c/200c as a pain killer as and when needed
- fever/sore throat after dental work on amalgam fillings, Merc viv 30c/200c
- feeling upset or violated after dental work, Staphisagria 30c/200c
