A gentleman 55 years old was suffering from severe pain in the carious right lower premolar for a month. The tooth crumbled almost up to its root. He was feeling intense pain in all the teeth of right side; his face was flushed as from fever. He was tense. There was some bleeding also from the cavity of the tooth.
In the beginning the patient took treatment for two weeks from the doctors of his department's dispensary. He was Director in a Central Govt Department. Not finding relief he consulted an eminent Dentist of the city and took his treatment for another two weeks, but in vain. At this stage he was suggested to try homoeopathy.
He immediately consulted me on 22/8/1983. I, after cleaning the cavity with a little Hydrogen Peroxide, put in the cavity a small swab moistened in the dilution of Chamomilla 1M. As soon as the swab was applied I noted some relaxation on his face. In about three minutes the patient told that there was about 25% relief in the pain. Then, I gave him two doses of Chamomilla 1M with few potions of placebo to be taken 4 to 6 hourly if there is relapse of the pain.
On 24/8/1983 he informed that by the time he reached his residence (say in about 7 minutes) the pain was totally gone. I advised him to get the root of the tooth extracted when the pain stops; so long I know he never got it extracted. On 9/9/1983 he had a relapse of the toothache and Chamomilla 200 set it right.
In numerous cases of toothache of various kinds I found the indicated homoeopathic medicines worked like this.
