 Integrative Dentistry: Cavities 

Supplement Directions for Use Comments

Calcium Take 1500 mg daily. An important component of strong, healthy teeth.

Magnesium Take 750 mg daily. Works along with calcium to maintain healthy teeth.

Zinc Take 30 mg daily. Influences growth, Immune function, and healing.

Homeopathic Treatment

When using tablets, dissolve them under your tongue. When using liquid, place the drops directly on your tongue. (Because of their alcohol base, liquid homeopathic preparations should not be given to children. Tablets, which have a sweet milk sugar base and can be dissolved in the mouth, are excellent for children.) Do not eat or drink for fifteen minutes prior to or after taking medication. (See Part One, Homeopathy, for additional information.)

Arnica 30x Take 1 tablet every 15 minutes as needed. Helps relieve toothache pain that is worse at night.

Chamomilla 30x Take 1 tablet hourly as needed. Indicated for toothache that is worse in response to heat.

Hypericum 30x Take 1 tablet 3 times daily. Take immediately after treatment to promote nerve healing and prevent pain.
