The pain that comes with an infected tooth is some of the worst pain that you can experience. Due to the fact that there are hundreds of nerve endings in your mouth and gums, an infected tooth can sometimes lead to excruciating amounts of pain.
The pain can sometimes magnify and creep up to the head causing full-on, throbbing headaches in addition to the tooth and jaw pain. Aside from the fact that any infection, no matter where it occurs, should be looked at and tended to immediately, tooth infections are especially important. But the good news is, you don't have to shell out a bunch of money on antibiotics and a dentist visit just to heal it.
Here are some of the top natural antibiotics for tooth infections.
You can use fresh leaves or you can use the oil form of cloves in order to treat a tooth infection. Cloves contain one of the most potent anti-inflammatory agents within it, which makes it great for the swelling and puffiness that comes with an infected tooth. It also is high in antioxidant and antibacterial properties, which means that it helps to clean the infected area upon contact.
Clove has naturally occurring eugenol, which is a phenylpropene that helps to increase the helpful elements of the herb. Try grinding the leaves into a paste, add some coconut oil and put it directly on the infected tooth. If you are using clove oil, add two drops into warm water and gargle it twice a day, concentrating specifically on the area of your mouth that's infected.
One of the most effective treatments for inflammation and bacteria, your tooth will start to heal upon its first contact with turmeric. The yellow powder is a natural antibiotic for toothaches specifically because of its pain-relieving properties.
Just a small dab of the powder, mixed with water can be applied with a Q-tip or a cotton ball right on the affected area. This will help to mitigate the swelling and also provide you with some relief from the pain that accompanies these types of infections. Let the turmeric sit for a couple of minutes and then rinse mouth out with warm water.
3. Colloidal Silver
Known as a preeminent compound that effectively fights infections, colloidal silver can be taken for a number of issues stemming from viruses or bacterial latent infections. If you are suffering from an infection, this is the perfect option for you.
Add a few drops of colloidal silver into some water, add a few drops of oregano oil, another powerful antibacterial oil, and rinse your mouth with it at least twice a day. You can also ingest colloidal silver separately. Six to eight drops in water can be taken ever four to six hours. This helps increase the body's ability to fight off the infection from the inside out.
4. Hydrogen Peroxide
The same way this liquid disinfects and protects your nicks and cuts is the same way it will help to protect and heal your tooth infection. Just a couple of drops on a Q-tip or cotton ball will do the trick. Make sure to rinse your mouth out with water afterwards.
