Having broken a filling in one of my back teeth, I had begun to have tooth ache, unable to eat anything hot or cold, and couldn’t chew on that side without considerable discomfort!
I called my dentist. Well at present to receive any dental care you must:
- Be in excruciating pain with no effective analgesia
- Be unable to sleep because of the pain
Because I was coherent and not screaming, I was advised to purchase a filling kit and fill it myself and try to get more pain relief from my GP or speak to a pharmacist.
I had just received my Health Advisor Kit from Weleda and quickly noticed the Ratanhia mouthwash.
My husband uses one from the supermarket and he likes it but I find it leaves my mouth feeling like a layer of skin has been stripped off!
So I carefully had a go with the Ratanhia one in my Weleda kit. I liked the fact I could dilute in warm water so I could cope with swishing around my mouth and I am amazed how much it has helped. Sure, it hasn’t mended the broken filling but since I have been using in twice a day, I have no more tooth ache and if it does get irritated by biting on it too hard then within a couple of minutes of using the mouthwash, it calms down.
So I am a convert!
