The Treatment of Toothache

A shamefully large number of physicians still relieve toothache by extracting the tooth. It is easier to extract than to spend time in giving medicine or advice. The average layman does not know how great is the value of a tooth and how hard it is to properly replace it when gone. The following formula will relieve any toothache which will succumb to medicines:

Creosote 10.00
Chloroform 10.00
Oil of cloves 10.00
Camphor 7.00
Phenol 2.00

Apply.—Med. Summary.
