    Not sure what you want to use for a tooth infection...but nothing will totally get rid of a tooth infection until the tooth is repaired with a root canal or extract the tooth. You need an antibiotic first. Make sure you get to a dentist soon. Until you get to a dentist you can take motrin if you are able to and use heat on the outside of your face. Maybe try calling your dentist and he may call in an antibiotic for you so you have it before you come in for your appointment!
