St. Apollonia, who died in the year 249, was martyred for not renouncing her faith during the reign of Emperor Philip. The account of the life of St. Apollonia was written by St. Dionysius to Fabian, Bishop of Antioch. Apollonia had all her teeth knocked out after being hit in the face by a Christian persecutor under the reign of Emperor Philip. After she was threatened with fire unless she renounced her faith, Apollonia jumped into the flames ... Continue Reading

    Dear St. Apollonius, I pray for financial assistance to fix my teeth. I sometimes feel bad because I let my teeth get bad. I pray for your help to ask the Lord for me to find a way to have a smile makeover. I would love to get married with a beautiful smile. Please in Jesus name help me find a way to fix my teeth. I'm ashamed to smile and would love to have a beautiful smile. Thanks. St. Apollonius for your intercession. I will spread devotion.

    Dear Saint,

    Pray for this wretched soul of mine so that our Beloved Lord forgives my sins that I commit each and every seconds of my life. Teach me to be courageous as you were in upholding the faith so that I would become a doer rather than a hearer of the Word. Amen.

    Dear Saint Apollonia:
    I prayed to Saint Anthony to help me find a good healing solution to some dental bone loss and an abutment last molar holding a one-tooth bridge with a decay in its root. A girl immediately came into my store and told me to do "oil pulling" to cure the gum infection and encourage bone growth around the teeth roots and teeth. She told me to buy organic coconut oil (it's solid white in the jar). She instructed me to buy it at the health food store -- not expensive. The deal is to put a tablespoon or so in your mouth first thing in the morning and vigorously swish between all your teeth for 20 minutes in the morning & 20 minutes at night. The coconut oil seeps into the periodontal pockets and kills the infection. She said the pockets shrink, gums tighten, and loose teeth become tight. I am doing this now for the past week. My gums no longer bleed and look light pink with no swelling. I don't know yet if there has been any change in that major cavity in the root of my back tooth. I consider that girl coming into my store to be sent by St. Anthony to deliver that advice. I love that coconut oil and so far seems to be making some major improvement in my dental case. Please try it -- it's cheap and you have everything to gain. Research "oil pulling" on the internet for more information - coconut oil does not hurt silver fillings. Just felt I wanted to share this with people on this discussion board. Please dear Saint Apollonia, restore my dental health so I do not lose any teeth; nor have a big dental bill that I cannot afford to pay. I trust that you and St. Anthony will work together to bring relief and good teeth to all who ask for your help.
    Amen!!!! Thank you Sts. Apollonia and Anthony of Padua.

    Dear Saint Apollonia, with Saint Padre Pio, my spiritual father, please pray to The Father that He will heal my receding gums and my teeth. May my gums be brought back to normal and my teeth free from anymore caries or problems. I ask this in the name of Jesus Who said if you knock the door will be opened, if you seek you will find and if you ask it will be given. In Jesus' name I knock, in Jesus' name I ask, and in Jesus' name I seek healing for my gums and teeth. Praise be to God! I give Him thanks and praise and honor and glory in advance for this great grace on this day or His birth!
