Dental frustration continues!

Damaged

It will be a month post op on Thursday and now I do not need to touch my face to experience pain. The ‘abscess’ was beneath eye tooth now a visible blister is forming on outside of the gum!!! Nothing is straight forward. All that time to talk myself into surgery and it is worse than ever. Someone truly does not like me . It is so insured I do not know what to do next.

An abscess can take months to heal as. I'm sure your dentist will have told you.

Depends a lot on how fast you heal in general, plus of course scrupulousl oral hygiene.

It was a cyst not abscess does that change things? At no time did they tell me it would get worse with surgery. I am wondering if I should get a second opinion.

If you think about it any surgical work in the mouth...even a simple extraction - takes longer to heal than an external surgery.

It a warm damp area & it's difficult to keep it clean.

I'm sure it will heal if you follow your dentist's instruction on oral hygiene.

Will do

I would suggest that you start taking Colloidal Silver continuously. I stopped taking it some years ago and wished that i hadn't so i will start again as virus and bacterium are not able to survive when silver is present as silver will reach the whole body it is better than any drug without any side or damaging effects.

It is not rapid in it's action but it is thorough in it's effect and in many ways as effective as oxygen perhaps more so as it remains present unlike taken oxygen either through inhalation or in water

What’s the Bottom Line?

How much do we know about colloidal silver?

There are no high quality studies on the health effects of taking colloidal silver, but we do have good evidence of its dangers.

What do we know about the effectiveness of colloidal silver?

Claims made about the health benefits of taking colloidal silver aren’t backed up by studies.

What do we know about the safety of colloidal silver?

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has said that colloidal silver isn’t safe or effective for treating any disease or condition.

What Is Colloidal Silver?

Colloidal silver consists of tiny silver particles in a liquid.

It’s sometimes promoted on the Internet as a dietary supplement, but evidence supporting health-related claims is lacking.

It can be dangerous to your health.

What the Science Says About the Safety and Side Effects of Colloidal Silver

Colloidal silver can cause serious side effects. The most common is argyria, a bluish-gray discoloration of the skin, which is usually permanent.

Colloidal silver can also cause poor absorption of some drugs, such as certain antibiotics and thyroxine (used to treat thyroid deficiency).

The FDA also warned in 1999 that colloidal silver isn’t safe or effective for treating any disease or condition.

The FDA and the Federal Trade Commission have taken action against a number of companies for making misleading claims about colloidal silver products.

More About Argyria

Silver can build up in the body’s tissue, causing a bluish-gray discoloration of large areas of skin, especially those exposed to the sun.

People have developed argyria from using homemade and commercial colloidal silver products.

What the Science Says About the Effectiveness of Colloidal Silver

Scientific evidence doesn’t support the use of colloidal silver dietary supplements for any disease or condition.

Silver has no known function or benefits in the body when taken by mouth.

Silver is not a nutritionally essential mineral or a useful dietary supplement.

People may be exposed to silver, usually in tiny amounts, through air, water, and food, and in certain activities such as jewelry-making or soldering.

Colloidal silver products are sometimes sold as homeopathic remedies. For more information on homeopathy, see nccih.nih.gov/health/homeopathy.

Topical silver (used on the skin) has some appropriate medical uses, such as in bandages and dressings to treat burns, skin wounds, or skin infections. It’s also in medicines to prevent conjunctivitis (an eye condition) in newborns. However, there are no legally marketed prescription or over-the-counter drugs containing colloidal silver that are taken by mouth.

More to Consider

Colloidal silver and other complementary products or practices that have not been proven safe and effective should never be used to replace conventional medical care or as a reason to postpone seeing a health care provider about a medical problem.

Tell all your health care providers about any complementary health approaches you use. Give them a full picture of what you do to manage your health. This will help ensure coordinated and safe care.

I never take anything without consulting Rheumie. I have a terrible history of drug reactions and allergies but thank you for suggestion.

Need I say more Salsaboy??🙄

Go back to your endodontist ASAP. Something just isn't right. You deserve to live painfree and if that means having your eye tooth pulled, well sobeit. Infections, abscesses & cysts are very dangerous and life threatening if let on their own to fester.

I wish you well

The ‘visible blister’ could be another abscess forming. Why not go back to the dentist and get it checked out? A simple course of antibiotics will normally do the trick.
