I have been looking for this and finally found it online.

Where There Is No Dentist

http://www.healthwrights.org/books/WTINDent/WTINDchapt1.pdf

all you have to do is substitute the number after WTINDchap and you can download the whole book. However, you really only need chapters 6 - 11.

I think most have Where There Is No Doctor (excellent book!).

You can get the needles/syringes here:

The bigger the gauge, the smaller the needle (for chickens like me).

You can get Lignocaine w/ Adrenaline injection here to numb the mouth and any other part of the body if you need stitches, etc and you can also get the topical lignocaine:

If you have an abscess tooth, get the antibiotics here (get the fish mox and take 3 capsules (250 mg) per day for 7 - 10 days until infection is gone. I would try the antibiotics first before trying to pull my own tooth.
For use on animals(wounds, infections, abscesses), 50 mg twice a day (large dogs 50+ lbs, 1 capsule 250 mg) per day):

I would have placed this thread in the First Aid section, but since I am a wuss when it comes to tooth pain, I figured I would spread my knowledge in the most popular section. People have medical kits/supplies. But let's not forget our teeth. We can go day to day while a bone heals or someone stitches us up. But a tooth ache is one of the worst pains any one can go through and stops us in our tracks.

Please move if you need to.

I have hard copies of both books that I purchased years back and they are a very good source of info IMO.

Thank you for the links on the meds.

For sure if you have an abscess, get rid of it before you pull the tooth. No dentist I know will pull an abscessed tooth. Too much danger of infection.

I have healed many abscessed teeth (my own and others) by breaking open golden seal root capsules (2 or 3) and mix with a drop or 2 of water. Just enough to hold the powder together. Put a lump of this between the cheek and the infected gum. Re do this every few hours until 24 hours after the infection is completely gone.
This way you are treating just the area instead of using oral anti-biotics and destroying a lot of good forces in other parts of the body.
I never said this tastes good. It will heal.:)

Clove oil works well for generalized oral pain. Tastes like heck, but it works for me every time.

I swear by cloves. I have very bad teeth and can't afford to go to the dentist for extractions at this time. My teeth are so bad that about half of them are broken off at the gums and cloves have made this bearable until the pain went away. What I do is buy a bottle of whole cloves or diced cloves and use it like chewing tobbacco. I place it in between the gum and cheeck where the sore tooth is and leave it there until it doesnt hurt any longer. Swap it out for new once it stops having effect. Cloves burn at first when you first put it into your mouth but this will go away or become soothing over a few minutes.

In using xylocaine with epinephrine (the "lignocaine with adrenalin" actually, brand is Lidocaine, generic xylocaine), you need to know where you can safely use it. epinephrine is among it's other uses, a vasoconstrictor, meaning it makes blood vessels smaller, which helps controll the bleeding. However, using it incorrectly can cause some major problems. Gum injections are fine, as are injections in areas that have a good blood supply (face, scalp, etc). The worst places to use it would be in the fingers or toes. especially if used as a circumferential block (completely circling a finger or toe). The vasoconstriction can cause enough blood loss that you can damage or lose the finger or toe. I realize that this has been mentioned in the context of dental injuries, and it is quite appropriate in this area. But since it is used for other things, such as suturing wounds (which is how I use it, since I'm not a dentist but sew up a lot of wounds), I wanted to make sure that the dangers of misuse were pointed out.
