Hello to all, 6mo's ago I lost an upper molar tooth, two days ago the area around it has become swollen & sore. I think it's absesed (sp?), can't afford the dentist, any natural ways to bring the swelling down????My hubby says to rinse w/ warm salt water.I've been planning to go on a Christian retreat this weekend in the mountains but now i don't know…
