Is there a natural antibiotic to fight a tooth infection?
I have an abscessed tooth (#30) and cannot afford to have it pulled until February. The dentist said he’d only prescribe me one week of antibiotics. I used the last of it today and have a whole month to go before I can have it surgically extracted (it has had two root canals so requires an oral surgeon to pull it) I just know the infection will come back again and spread into my ear like it did a week ago. Is there a natural antibiotic I can get online or at the health-food store? If I cannot find an alternative I will have to make another appointment with a different dentist when the infection comes back and I don’t have dental insurance. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
Thank You for your advice. I will gargle with warm salt water as you suggested. Why do I have to seek medical attention at once though? Who would I go to? My doctor will only tell me it’s a dental problem and send me back to the dentist. This is really a major bummer. I have spent a grand total of ,000 trying to save this tooth and it’s just hellbent on getting pulled. So I’m going to have to pull it. What could this lead to that I would have to seek immediate medical attention?
Tink, it’s too late, it was already in the bone before the antibiotics killed it. Now I’m worried it will come back. The medical community is heartless, all they care about is money. If I have to I will sell my truck. My son needs me. Thanks for the heads up. I didn’t know it could kill me.
