I've never known you could use it on people too, but it certainly makes sense. Thanks for the tip.

I have had a quick surf for Dental Tools on Google and found this...
It seems that there is different forceps for different Teeth so you would need to purchase a whole set... The danger with using normal pliers seems to be the tooth snapping and leaving the root behind... Ouch!!!
I own a orthodontic lab and you guys are way off on yout theories. If you have a decayed tooth and it starts to ache if you can wait it out the nerve will die and then your body will start to reject the dead cells. keys to this process is keeping infection down. over about a month period after the nerve has died and the pain has decressed the tooth will be come brittle and as long as you have no pre-emptive implications with tissues damage or infections the tooth will beging to break away above the gingival margin once the clinic crown has been broken off the remaining tooth will be treated like a splinter your body will reject it.
Is this true?? If so then cool Although i have had dental problems in the past and, to be honest, i dont know if i could just wait it out if i had an extraction tool sitting in my kit
Oh yeah... Clove oil is great stuff
Garlic has long been used as a tooth and gum remedy ~ In folklore, abscesses in the mouth were frequently treated by wrapping a raw, uncut clove of garlic in a layer of gauze and placing it on the problem area, often inserting it between the gum and the cheek.

The best thing to do is to complain alot now and get a bunch of antibiotics and store them properly, that will buy you and your loved ones some time, but will not take care of the problem in the long term.
I hate to suggest this but you can get antibiotic for your prets, cattle and such now and very cheap and over the counter at your local feedstore.
I had a great great aunt that died from an infected and abscessed tooth during the depression, very ugly when the whole side of your head and face swell up, and then when it popps from the pressure it shoots straight to the brain.
Get all of your dental work done now and if you have really bad teeth, get them out and get dentures with backups.
