Among the best antibiotics for an abscessed tooth are colloidal silver, bentonite clay, and raw garlic. Colloidal silver, also referred to as silver hydrosol, and bentonite clay are extremely effective because not only can they be used internally, they also can be applied externally, directly to the affected tooth or teeth. This advantage is very important because, in traditional modern medicine, prescribed antibiotics almost always fail to clear up the infection completely, resulting in treatment by extracting the tooth or performing what is known as a root canal.
When the infection lies at the root of the tooth, it generally is considered unreachable by any antibiotic, chemical or natural, circulating in the bloodstream. This is why antibiotics that can be directly applied to the infected tooth and gum, such as colloidal silver and bentonite, have the advantage. Bentonite clay has been used for thousands of years in folk medicine, and it has both absorbent and adsorbent properties. Exposure to water causes the clay to swell and turn into somewhat of a natural sponge, with spaces and cracks into which toxins and pathogenic viruses literally can be absorbed as they are pulled away from the inside of the tooth and gum.
Colloidal silver, like bentonite, can and should be applied directly to the tooth and gum. Unlike bentonite, however, colloidal silver also should be taken internally. It also has antibacterial and antiviral properties that are active internally and externally.
These all-natural substances can be successfully employed as antibiotics for an abscessed tooth using different methods that vary slightly. For example, some people will soak a cotton ball with liquid bentonite and place it around the tooth and gum to be held there almost constantly until the infection is gone. When the cotton is removed, it can be replaced by another piece that has been soaked in colloidal silver.
Some people have had excellent results within a couple of days by mixing colloidal silver and bentonite together before soaking the cotton ball to be applied to the tooth and gum. If colloidal silver cannot be obtained, chewing at least three raw garlic cloves in a day does much to help fight infection internally. Bentonite and colloidal silver typically are sold in well-stocked health foods stores in many countries, including the United States and Canada. It is very important, however, that only the purest and safest products be used.
