The pain from an infected tooth is one of the worst kinds of pain that anyone can experience, thanks to the hundreds of nerve endings in the gums and mouth. It can even creep up to the head, causing throbbing headaches. More than the pain, an infection needs to be tended to immediately. Fortunately, you do not have to spend so much on expensive antibiotics to treat it. There are a few natural antibiotics that can help you.


The fresh leaves or oil from cloves can treat a tooth infection. Cloves contain a very potent anti-inflammatory agents, making it great for the puffiness and swelling of an infected tooth. It is also high in antibacterial and antioxidant properties to help clean the infected area. Grind the leaves into a paste, mix with some coconut oil and apply directly to the affected tooth. With oil, add two drops into a glass of water and gargle it twice daily.


An effective treatment for bacteria and inflammation, the yellow powder that is turmeric is a natural antibiotic that contains pain-relieving properties. Mix the powder with a little water and apply a small dab on the infected tooth using a cotton ball or Q-tip. This will help mitigate the swelling while also giving you relief from the pain that accompanies the infection. Allow the turmeric to sit for a few minutes before rinsing it with warm water.

Colloidal Silver

Colloidal silver is a preeminent compound that fights infections, including viruses and bacterial latent infections. Add a few drops of the liquid into a glass of water and combine with a few drops of oregano oil, which is another antibacterial oil. Use this solution as a mouth rinse twice daily. You can also separately ingest colloidal silver; add six drops of it in water and take every six hours. This can help increase the ability of the body to fight protection.

Hydrogen Peroxide

Aside from disinfecting and protecting your nicks and cuts, hydrogen peroxide is also able to heal and protect an infected tooth. Add a couple of drops on a cotton ball or Q-tip on your infected tooth. After a few minutes, rinse your mouth out with warm water.

Yes, an infected tooth can literally be a big pain. It is a good thing that there are so many options available for you to treat it. If you cannot afford the expensive medications available, you might want to give the listed natural antibiotics above a try. But if nothing seems to work, give your dentist a visit. They can properly diagnose your problem and determine the best course of action to heal it.
