    Awesome e-book… feel like I learned a LOT. The only thing I wish I would have learned more about is EO water and where/how to have it to use. At any rate thank you for all of the useful info… it will definitely change how I take care of my teeth and I'm thinking I will teach my children about it as well. Also is activated charcoal as a toothpaste abrasive?

    My dentist does nothing about my pain. How long does it take for the wisdom tooth to come throw? I have been having this pain for years but it only comes every few months

    I have this at the moment and to help some others, get a small cup fill it with 3/4 cup warm water and add salt until the salt doesn't dissolve anymore. Gargle half of the solution on the side your pain is in for 1 min. It will feel weird and super salty but try to gargle for the whole minute. Spit out and rinse with warm water. Take your toothbrush and rinse it, dunk your toothbrush into the left over solution and mix it around 5-10sec then brush the gum or area that hurts. Really brush the inflamed gum and even the wisdom tooth if its partially out. Brush the surrounding area that's red and also inflammed. Rinse toothbrush and repeat 2-4 times. When done brushing rinse your mouth with warm water, then gargle again the last of the saltwater solution. Rinse out then take a ibuprofen or Tylenol and relax. The swelling will go down drastically and the pain will go away. It hurt to brush my gum and tooth, it even bled but it's worth the outcome. I have no pain now and the swelling is gone. I hope it works for you. The brushing is key, Don't be afraid to really brush the area and get the bristles under the gum of the partial wisdom tooth. it will hurt but will start fading away.

    I'm on day three of recovery and I'm 12. No joke. This is not that bad, but I can barely open up my mouth.

    I'm 14 and one of my wisdom teeth (on the bottom right side of my mouth) is causing problems for me.. The gums are swollen terribly, even overlapping my second molar a tiny bit, and they hurt really bad whenever I chew. On top of that, I have to wear a retainer on my top AND bottom teeth, so the retainers dig into my gums, but I can't do much about that since I HAVE to wear them. Plus, I'm sick and I may have thrush. I'm going to get it checked, but for now thank you for the education! I've been trying to figure out what's 'wrong' with me and I'm sure this has something to do with my wisdom tooth. – Jenna

    Finally, this video explains why the needle crunching, acidic burning sensation has been flowing through back gums as I eat.
