When my sons wisdom teeth started to come in , they became "impacted". I did a search and 99.9% of the sites or advice was that once the wisdom teeth become impacted (infection sets in) the only thing left you could do was to have them extracted! Unable to find any real protocal other then the standard treatment of extraction, I decide to try to spare him any more pain and see if we could deal with it ourself! Impacted wisdom teeth means there is an infection which inflames the gums and causes the severe pain! Well I figuered if I could relieve the infection it would relieve the pain and ultimately avoid surgery! I gave him 10 grams of vitamin c, tea with grapefruit seed extract and as far as my son is concern the most affective treatment, Sea Salt
I could see the infection in his mouth and on the back of his throat,little white bumps where he said it hurt or annoyed him the most!
He told me he felt instance pain relief from the Sea Salt
gargle I made for him!
With in the next couple of days he said the pain was totaly gone ,. I could see that the white puss filled bumps where all gone along with the red swelling. He told me that the only thing he could feel was a little pressure where his teeth where breaking through the skin ! With in days the infection had cleared up, so even if Vitamin C did cause a potassium deficiency , which I doubt, if you use Sea Salt
to help rid the infection it would hardly be enough time to cause a deficiency of any kind!
