When you have a tooth infection that is causing extreme pain, your best choice is to get into the dentist and have the tooth pulled. A tooth infection can easily spread throughout the entire body causing an extremely serious blood infection known as sepsis which can be deadly. Until you can get into the dentist though, there are natural antibiotics for tooth infection you can take that can help.

Some of the best tooth infection antibiotics have been used for years and are called essential oils. Two of them, spearmint oil and clove oil are particularly good for tooth pain. You can also drink them in tea form, making sure the tea is not too hot and you are not adding sugar to the tea. It is best to have the temperature luke warm, around the same temperature of your skin.

If you are looking for pain relief or natural antibiotics for tooth infection in over the counter form, definitely use a pain reliever.  Taking baby aspirin and chewing it on the affected tooth can certainly help. If you cannot chew the aspirin, crush it up and put it around the tooth manually. Aspergum is also a product you may find on the market that can be chewed and will bring relief.

Alcohols, if you are at legal age, are natural antibiotics for tooth infection. Swishing room temperature alcohol around the area of the tooth can bring instant relief as it dulls the nerves.  Drinking the alcohol can also get it into your blood stream so that can also help. Red wine or vodka are said to be the best choices. Using a cotton swap and putting hydrogen peroxide or apple cider vinegar directly on the tooth are also great tooth infection antibiotics.

Some foods can be great tooth infection antibiotics until you can see a dentist. One of them is garlic. Crushing up garlic and placing it directly on the tooth may burn the gum tissue slightly, but it will stop the pain. Garlic powder can also be used if you make a paste with warm water. Teas, like chamomile and peppermint can be great too. Place a warm tea bag directly on the tooth. Another remedy found in your kitchen is vanilla extract. Again, place it around the tooth with a cotton swab.

Though these remedies will work in the short term, seeing a dentist for extraction is the only long term remedy.
