A 43-year-old woman started having toothache in Aug 2020. In early Sept, she consulted a dentist who found two cavities and recommended filling them. However, she chose to get only the painful tooth filled. Towards the end of October pain started in the other tooth and this would aggravate with hot or cold food. This forced her to cool down coffee - her favourite drink and swallow it rather than sip it hot. By the end of November pain became unbearable, she went back to the dentist who found the cavity was too deep. Suspecting nerve damage, he recommended root canal treatment but she insisted on having just a filling. Within two days she had to return to the dentist with pain and swelling. He removed the filling, prescribed painkillers and again advised root canal treatment.
In order to avoid the expensive and painful procedure, the patient started looking for an alternative and opted for vibrionics. On 23 Dec 2020 she was given:
NM39 Teeth Decay + SR391 Kreosotum...6TD
Within ten days the pain was completely gone. The patient was able to take hot and cold food without discomfort. The dosage was reduced to TDS on 4 Jan 2021 and to OD after a week before discontinuing it on 13 Jan. As there is a greater risk of infection in an unfilled cavity the practitioner advised her to go back to the dentist for a filling. As there was no pain, the patient did not feel the need to do so. However eight months later, the practitioner again stressed the need for a filling, so the patient visited her dentist who confirmed that now there was no need for a root canal treatment and simply filled the cavity. As of end Oct 2021, she is doing well.
