Tooth infections....

Hopefully this will be of help to someone.

Ok so a little while ago I got a tender gum, followed by a little swelling.

The wife suggested swilling with bicarbonate of soda in a little water, which I did 4 times a day.
After the first day, I woke up the following morning with no swelling. After the second day there was no tenderness. I kept it up for another 2 days to make sure, but it was gone - and hasn't come back. That's faster and more effective than any antibiotics I've ever had.

Note: this doesn't work for everybody. Ironically, the wife is one of them.
