Homeopathy Repertory

A Repertory of Toothache

Dr S C Kursija shares a very useful Repertory of Toothache. Find useful homeopathy remedies for toothache in children and adults, toothache during dentition, in young children, due to dental caries, and dental abscesses.

The toothache may be taken as one of the most troublesome conditions where the patient requires immediate relief and efficacy of homoeopathic medicines can be tested. If one does not get relief within a few doses he will revert to allopathy.

Potency: One should try the higher potencies at first. The improvement should follow within a very short time if the selection of the medicine is proper. If the improvement does not follow within a few doses, one can use the same medicine in lower potency, if he still thinks that the selection of medicine is correct. According to my observations, the need to repeat medicines does not depend on the particular medicine, but on the ailment of the patient. The acute and functional troubles require high potency and infrequent repetition and pathological advanced cases require low potency. The higher the vitality, the higher the potency and the less frequent the repetition. The lower the vitality, the lower the potency and more frequent the repetition.

A single characteristic, uncommon and peculiar symptom is of more value than half a dozen symptoms.

Dose and administration of Medicine.

1M potency in globules should be given dry on tongue at first in all cases. In children, pregnancy, and hypersensitive persons, only five to ten globules should first be dissolved in half a cup of water and taken in spoonful.
