Homeopathic Protocol for Dental Surgery

by Carol D'Agostino
March 1996

Perhaps my experience with abscessed teeth removal will be helpful to you. Last year I had over 20 badly abscessed teeth removed over a period of 6 months. I made it clear to my dentist that I would not take any antibiotics or pain killers, just the anesthetic, Carbocaine without ephinephrine, single dose vials without preservative. He reluctantly left the matter in my hands.

I researched homeopathic remedies and came up with the following protocol which worked beautifully.

Rescue Remedy
1 drop under the tongue just prior to appointment
For pre-session jitters

Arnica 30C
immediately after extraction and hourly til bedtime
1 pellet under tongue
Next day - 1 pellet every 4 hours
For swelling, bleeding, pain

Hypericum 30C
Optional - if there is any nerve pain or pain
from the deep cleaning (I didn't need this)

Do not take any Vitamin C the morning of the appointment as it will make the anesthetic ineffective. But as soon as you get home after the appointment, take 1 or 2 grams immediately and it will get rid of the numb feeling fast. Continue with spaced doses for a few days, according to what you can tolerate.

I did have a problem with the sutures as they were saturated with ethylene oxide, so obtained some organic cotton thread and my dentist sterilized it and used that.

I had almost no pain, minimal swelling and very fast healing. I wish the same for you.
