Years ago when I first started following Crash Course I drew up a list of things that I needed to sort out prior to collapse, one of which was a full dental check, not my usual annual check up , more a visit to a specialist to consider potential future problems. I don’t usually go looking for problems but thought that dental treatment in a collapse to potentially be more problematic than medical treatment. Anyway, for various reasons it didn’t happen until just before covid and I discovered that due to a previous trauma to my teeth I had infection in my jaw and needed quite a bit of work, then lockdowns hit.
Some of the work has been done but just prior to this weekend I started with toothache – dentist shut till Monday, no sleep last 2 nights, face now swollen and pain killers not working, really wishing I had acted sooner.
Moral of this story, sort out your dental work now, before the unvaxed can’t get it!!
Wow that is a horrifying thought. Not being able to get dental work (or other medical procedures) unless you’ve been vaccinated. That is chilling.
Try a few ‘normal’ doses of ivermectin for your dental infection; it worked for me. In addition to taking the dose orally and swallowing it, try putting the paste directly on the affected areas.
Also try the niacin flush treatment, that is take a big enough dose (100mg-500mg range) of niacin to make you flush all over. It helped my dental infection also.
I think it is critical to keep all of your health issues squared up as we move forward, not just dental. Spare glasses. spare contacts, body in physical shape, etc.
You may temporarily resolve a dental infection with chemical intervention. However, the vast majority of dental infections will simply be knocked to a chronic state. Not a bad thing in an emergency, but it is NOT the long term solution. The chronic infection will become acute again at some point in the future and you are right back into a debilitating situation.
Hopefully, a dentist refusing to see an unvaxxed patient will not become the norm. I wouldn’t count that out, though. We are now having patients not come to the because we refuse to answer the question, “Has everyone in the office been vaccinated”?
Personally, I am planning for the worst in the vaxxed/unvaxxed shitstorm that is brewing.
Thanks Random Mike, I tried the niacin first as it’s easier to replace than Ivermectin. The pain has eased off enough for me to get a few jobs done, great to have something that handles dental pain – I must order more.
Yes, I agree with you MarkM about chronic infections, they are what I was trying to resolve as I had been knocking them back with “chemical intervention” for a few years. Not a good solution where we are heading.
I will be calling my dentist for an appointment first thing Monday. Good info BRP.
You may want to check into oil of oregano (not the same as oregano essential oil) for dental infections. I have heard of people using it successfully. It may help things until you can see your dentist.
Blood Red Peony – sorry for your troubles. I am a dentist, and have a set-up where after hours emergencies are forwarded to me and my business partner. After having closed for 7 weeks last spring, we have been treating any and all patients who come to our office as long as they are not symptomatic and or recently infected with the virus (as far as can be determined with a questionnaire). The scenario of not treating unvaxxed patients will not be an issue for us. With our day to day infection control procedures, we are comfortable providing routine care as we always have in the past. I am more concerned, rather, with some kind of law / executive order that would mandate the vaccine in order to provide dental treatment.
My wife and I had Covid last December. Having the great information available here on PP, we had been taking the appropriate supplements, had our Vit D levels up etc. We experienced it as a mild flu. Having natural immunity, I have no intention to be vaccinated.
Hope you’ll get well soon!
I totally agree with you that taking dental treatments at the right time is the best to avoid further problems. I witnessed my friend’s situation during the pandemic. She had a dental cavity that had been neglected for a long time because it did not cause her pain or discomfort. But one day, it suddenly started paining and unfortunately, it was during the lockdown. We were unable to consult an emergency dentist, and her situation was getting worse each day. We tried many home remedies like rinsing the mouth with saltwater and all, but nothing worked. She experienced this pain for about two weeks, and as soon as the lockdown was lifted she was able to make an appointment with the dentist. I don’t know what would have happened if she wasn’t able to get an appointment with the dentist at that time. Somehow everything went well for her, and now we are very strict to do regular dental checkups.
I have oil of oregano as an emergency dental treatment, but it was not very effective, it actually took 2 different antibiotics to make a difference. But my point was that I had a couple of days of pain prior to seeing the dentist, what will we do if we should ever be denied treatment completely? I would have had to wave the white flag and take the jab.
Docbp, good to hear someone is willing to treat the “unclean”, thank you.
Ralph Brown, glad that your friend got treatment, but it certainly makes you think about how easily you can get in a real mess doesn’t it.
