Homeopathy for Dental Emergencies

If you experience a dental emergency, then you can use this information to help you as a first aid choice before you see a dentist. That does not mean that you should not go and visit a dentist, and all proper dental advice should be followed. You can also use this advice to help you with the pain and discomfort after dental treatment.

For fear of the dentist:

  • Aconite 12C: five pellets the night before and the morning of your appointment will lessen any panic or restlessness, and you can have another dose around 45 minutes before the procedure itself
  • Gelsemium 12C: five pellets the night before and the morning of your appointment to reduce nausea, diarrhea, sleepiness or weakness, and you can have another dose around 45 minutes before the procedure itself

Things to Remember for Maximum Effectiveness

  1. Ensure that you do not touch the pellets, but instead put them in a cap or glass, and then put straight into your mouth
  2. Put the pellet under your tongue, and allow it to naturally dissolve
  3. You cannot eat 20 minutes before or 20 minutes after taking your pellet
  4. Certain natural plants such as coffee, tea, and mint can counter-act the beneficial effects of these homeopathic remedies, so you must avoid them
  5. Do not store any of your homeopathic remedies near products that contain camphor or perfume

When symptoms have gone, stop using the homeopathic remedy.
