Three days before you go to the dentist, start eating pineapple. Have a serving of fresh pineapple or a cup of canned pineapple in its own juice, and drink a cup of 100% pineapple juice every day. The enzymes in pineapple should help reduce pain and discomfort. They can also help speed the healing process.
Continue the pineapple regimen for a day or two after the dental work is completed.
