Home Remedy: Ginger Helps Relieve Infected Root Canals


A study in Sudan interestingly tested the efficacy of ginger, cinnamon and a combination of the booth in reducing root canal infections.  Although the results seem to be of little clinical aid the study of 50 teeth demonstrated that the ginger extract was effective at reducing the amount of colony forming units of bacteria associated with root canal infections by over half, the cinnamon group saw a slight reduction and combination group a slight reduction as well. The best result is to seek dental advice promptly but don't skimp on the ginger!
