Colloidal Silver and Healthy Teeth and Gums

One of the most popular and effective uses for colloidal silver is keeping your teeth and gums healthy and infection-free.

Colloidal silver can be used as a mouthwash to help prevent the buildup of plaque which leads to cavities and gum disease. And it can be used to stop painful tooth infections dead in their tracks if you get to them soon enough.

Indeed, many people have been able to altogether avoid painful dental fillings or even root canals thanks to the healing and infection-fighting qualities of colloidal silver. Here’s what you need to know…

Hi, Steve Barwick here, for The Silver Edge

I’ve had teeth problems my entire life.

In fact, I can’t remember a time when I didn’t have teeth problems. As a child, cavities were a regular way of life. And as an adult, I’ve had more than my fair share of painful experiences with cavities and root canals.

A lot of that, I admit, was due to laziness on my part, and poor diet. Since childhood, I’ve been terrible about eating too much sugar. And I’ve been terrible about brushing. In fact, in the past I rarely brushed more than once a day.

What’s more, I was terrible about going to the dentist. If I could get away with it, I’d avoid the dentist for years. And then when I’d absolutely have to go to a dentist’s office, it was only because the damage to my teeth had been so great I could no longer stand the pain.

Then about five years ago I lost a bunch of teeth and ended up spending close to $20,000 on dental work.

Ouch…That Hurt (Way More Than a Toothache)!

Now that was painful.

I could have put a nice down payment on a house with that kind of money. So it really made me sit up and take notice. Big time.

I decided then and there to become more responsible and start taking better care of my teeth.

In the past, I had used colloidal silver on my teeth, but only when there were cavities or other problems such as the need for a root canal.

Then I’d go to extraordinary lengths to avoid the dentist’s drill, by brushing my teeth with colloidal silver repeatedly, and by holding colloidal silver in my mouth and swishing it around for 10 minutes at a time, multiple times a day.

But as soon as the tooth infection was abated with colloidal silver, I’d go back to my old lazy ways and ignore diligent oral health care.

No More!

Thankfully, that’s all a thing of the past.

Indeed, for the past five years, I’ve taken great pains to brush my teeth after each meal, literally saturating my toothbrush with colloidal silver before adding the toothpaste.

Sometimes I even put some colloidal silver gel right on top of my toothpaste before brushing, using either Sovereign Silver Gel or ASAP Ultimate Skin & Body Care Gel (both available inexpensively at

And I always rinse thoroughly with colloidal silver after each brushing, swishing it around in my mouth forcefully to make sure it gets between all of the teeth and into the gums.

I even use 7-10 ppm colloidal silver in my water pic, full strength. And I spray colloidal silver on the little “floss pick” I use after brushing in order to stop plaque from forming.

Finally, I also rinse my toothbrush with warm water after each brushing and then spray it lightly with colloidal silver before putting it into the toothbrush holder.

I just let it air dry in the toothbrush holder, so the silver particles stay on the toothbrush bristles. That way, there’s no germ buildup on the toothbrush when I go to use it next.

Experts say that your toothbrush is one of the filthiest implements in your home. But not when you spray it after each use with colloidal silver!


Perhaps that’s a bit obsessive. But it’s been working like crazy.

Indeed, since I’ve started using colloidal silver in earnest on my teeth as a daily preventative measure rather than only when I have a tooth infection, I haven’t had a single cavity or tooth problem of any kind.

And it’s been like that for just about five straight years now.

In fact, at my last checkup I didn’t even have any plaque, which is a virtual miracle for me! And I haven’t had any bleeding gums in the past five years, either, since I started using colloidal silver as a normal part of my daily oral health care regimen!

Not Just Me…

And it’s not just me, either.

I regularly get emails, letters and phone calls from experienced colloidal silver users, telling me how they use colloidal silver to heal dental problems of all kinds.

For example, here are just a few real-life accounts of people using colloidal silver to heal their teeth and dental problems (taken from the Testimonials page at

“Eliminated All Plaque, No Cavities for 4 Years!”

“Internally, I brush my teeth with colloidal silver solution. It has nearly eliminated all plaque besides furnishing good breath and no cavities for the past 4 years.”

— D. Anderson, AR

“Healed My Husband’s Sore Tooth!”

“My story involves my husband. He is quite a skeptic regarding colloidal silver. But he was having a terrible toothache and absolutely hates going to the dentist (a childhood fear).

So I suggested that he take an ounce of full strength colloidal silver into his mouth and keep it on the tooth as long as he could (at least 2 minutes), then swish it around and spit it out.

He did this every couple of hours. After a couple of days he noticed less pain and little by little he lessened the times he used the silver down to three times a day.

It took about one month but the pain completely subsided and it did not reoccur and he did not even have to go to the dentist. He is now a “silver” believer!

Daily, usually before bed, he will take 1 ounce of colloidal silver into his mouth and swishes it around and then swallows it (for maintenance).

Any time either of us get an irritation in the mouth, be it an accidentally bitten cheek or tongue, or sore gum, colloidal silver is what we reach for.”

— J.K., Presque Isle, MI

“Cured My Wife’s Infected Tooth and Gum!”

“My wife and I just got back from a road trip to New Mexico, where we attended a family reunion and party in celebration of her parent’s 50th wedding anniversary.

And wouldn’t you know it? Just before we left my wife’s left rear molar began to hurt, and a big red bubble of infection came up behind the tooth.

It became so painful she couldn’t chew food. What’s more, she began to get a sore throat from the infection.

When we got to the hotel in NM, I had my wife take her toothbrush and brush the heck out of the infected gum behind the tooth. She brushed until it broke open and bled profusely.

Then I had her hold a mouthful of colloidal silver over the infected bleeding gum for as long as she could. Then she repeated that process three more times, holding the colloidal silver over the infected gum for about five minutes each time.

The bleeding stopped. The pain subsided. The next day I had her do it again. This time when she brushed vigorously over the infected gum, it barely bled.

She held the colloidal silver in her mouth over the infected gum as she had the previous day. And repeated this process three more separate times during the course of the day.

By this time the pain was gone. And there was no more sign of infected gum. The sore throat had dissipated.

She was able to attend the anniversary party and go out to dinner afterwards with family and friends who had come in from other states. Another victory for colloidal silver!”

— S.B., Phoenix, AZ

“I Used Colloidal Silver Instead of Antibiotics After Dental Surgery!”

“I had dental work (surgery) done and instead of taking antibiotics, opted for the colloidal silver instead.

The dentist was really upset when he found out that I hadn’t had the Rx filled for antibiotics and said that I put my health at serious risk by ‘being so foolish’. He refuses to acknowledge that it helped even though I had no after effects from the surgery.

Previously to that I had used colloidal silver a couple of times for abscessed teeth and they cleared up.

I should have ordered your colloidal silver maker years ago! It would have saved us a lot of money as I have always kept our whole family supplied.”

— Suzanne W., Seneca, SC

“Cured My Abscessed Tooth By Rinsing With Colloidal Silver!”

“I started getting an abscess tooth, rinsed with the colloidal silver water 2x a day for 3 days and it cleared right up.”

— Nancy S., Topeka, KS

“Healed My Swollen, Infected Tooth in 3 Weeks!”

“In Nov 2009, I woke up with pains shooting from my jaw into my left eye. I had a swollen infected tooth.

I tried drugs, heat, cold compresses and everything I could think of. Nothing helped much, my jaw continued to grow larger and chewing food was impossible.

I was nearly at my end when I remembered I had a colloidal silver generator and I made some colloidal silver.

I swished the solution gently around my mouth about three or four times a day until I began to notice some of the swelling had been reduced as well of the lessening of pain.

It took about three weeks before the swelling and pain was gone and I could eat/chew solid foods again. A bit too late for the family Thanksgiving feast but I am glad to be better still.

Now if I feel a slight tingle I use the solution again as preventive measures against any infections.”

— B. Beyhr

“Bad Breath and Pain From Cracked Tooth Gone!”

“I had and still have a back tooth that I cracked some years ago and food particles would get in there and create bad breath.

Having a fear of the dentist, I just couldn’t get myself to get it fixed and the reality was, it was just getting worse and it was starting to hurt.

Since using the colloidal silver the pain has gone away, the bad breath has gone away, but unfortunately the tooth is still there, but with no pain and no bacteria to give me bad breath.

I know eventually I will have to go get it repaired, but in the mean time, I will ALWAYS be a faithful user of Colloidal Silver.”

— Dale Paquette, WA

“Healed Horrible Tooth Pain in Only One Day!”

“I have had an area in my upper molars that gets a low-grade infection now and then when I’m not able to brush my teeth right away. This was diagnosed by my dentist about 17 years ago. He gave me an antibiotic rinse that cleared it up but it has the potential of permanently discoloring your teeth!

So at the next flare-up, I had another idea and that was to apply a paste of cayenne pepper to bring blood to the area for healing. It worked fantastically — sometimes in only hours with one application!

However, recently this problem flared up again after a dental cleaning. I got lazy and it progressed to something really serious. At times, the whole right side of my face would ache badly. This and the soreness went on for weeks.

Eventually, the tooth area was so sore I could not chew even on the other side. The cayenne pepper didn’t work and rinsing my mouth with a commercial brand of colloidal silver, holding the liquid in my mouth for several minutes, did not work.

Then my daughter invited me to lunch the next day at my favorite restaurant. I was desperate. But I had recently purchased a Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver Edge.

I made a new batch and drank a WHOLE QUART of the micro-particle colloidal silver throughout the day before the lunch. I still went to bed at 10:00 that night not being able to bite down without serious pain. But when I woke up at 6:00 the next morning, ALL the pain was gone and I had a wonderful lunch.

That was weeks ago and I haven’t had any problem since nor any adverse side effects. I have continued a smaller amount of colloidal silver to avoid any possible recurrence.

By the way, I’m in my mid 60’s and don’t heal as fast as in my younger days, but the micro-particle colloidal silver is a miracle. Thanks for letting me share my story.”

— Yvonne W, Redwood City, CA

“Cured My Dry Socket Infection!”

“My friend told me about Colloidal Silver and how he made it himself with a silver generator. I was very skeptical to say the least. Actually I did not believe him. This was several years ago, and it sounded too good to be true.

However, I had a dry socket in my mouth after having a tooth pulled. An infection set in and nothing was working. The pain was horrifying.

My friend brought me some of the colloidal silver. I put in my mouth and let it stay for a few moments and spit it out. Within 30 minutes my fever was gone and so was the pain.

I put drops from a syringe directly on the tooth every 20 minutes for 2 hours and never looked back. I am now a believer in Colloidal Silver.”

— Alton from Mississippi

“The Toothache Disappeared!”

“Some time back June had a toothache and held an ounce of the solution in her cheek on the side that hurt, three times a day. The toothache disappeared.”

— C.A.J., San Diego, CA

“My Root Canal Pain is Gone, Too!”

“I am an accountant and very conservative by nature. I’ve been using colloidal silver for a few years (two ounces a day) and have seen benefits to my family as we have had few bad colds, no flus, no bronchitis, no tonsillitis and other such infections that we had been suffering from.

However, when I read about its effects on teeth I was skeptical. I have thirty year old silver fillings in most teeth and since the fillings are not designed to last forever, can expect major problems. My parents both had dentures and I expected to have them as well.

In April, I was diagnosed with a tooth requiring a root canal. I tried to treat it with colloidal silver but the symptoms did not abate.

The dentist attempted a root canal, but the tooth shattered as soon as the drill touched it. An extraction was required.

Why did colloidal silver not help? Maybe because the tooth developed a crack, and since the nerve was dead, colloidal silver could not repair the crack. Maybe I did not use enough. Maybe, since it was the end of tax season, there was too much pressure, adding to the symptoms.

In August, another tooth developed the same symptoms with pain shooting to other top and bottom teeth. The dentist identified one particular molar as dead and sent me to a specialist. They were sure that only one tooth was a problem and the spreading pain was normal.

I booked the root canal for a week later. Meanwhile, I started using colloidal silver more actively. I soaked a cheese cloth in colloidal silver and placed it between the teeth that were in the most pain. I left it in place for 20-30 minutes at a time, four or five times a day for three to four days, spitting out when finished.

I became discouraged with the lack of results and switched to swishing colloidal silver in my mouth several times a day and swallowing the colloidal silver. This was more convenient since I was doing this at work and was often interrupted.

After a few days, the pain reduced, then went away almost entirely. I reported this to friends and was advised to keep the appointment for the root canal, rather than relying on an unproven treatment.

When I went to the specialist, he decided to check my tooth again before doing the root canal. He did not accept that colloidal silver could reach the infected area in the tooth.

His testing, however, determined that my dead tooth was not causing any significant pain when he tapped on it. The tooth was still dead as I did not react to cold or electric shock.

He found that overall, my pain had drastically reduced, was greatly impressed with the progress, and he decided we should postpone the root canal.

He did not believe that there would be any problem resulting from leaving the dead tooth in place, just a risk that infection could return. That was fine with me. I have more colloidal silver.”

— Steve C.

“Saved Me From a Painful Infection and Tooth Extraction!”

“I have had teeth problems for a while, so I checked with my dentist. He recommended a dental surgeon to extract some molar teeth which had some infection.

I didn’t want to make that appointment because I was about to start a part-time job for the forest service in a remote area. I didn’t want to be out in the remote area without teeth.

I am thankful for the silver generator because I’m sure it saved me from infection and pain. I’ve been using the colloidal silver water every day since and would not want to be without it.”

— H. Factor, Lewiston, ID

“It’s Worked Miracles for My 85 Year Old Mom!”

“My Mom is 85 years old…she has been losing her teeth and had very sore gums… again antibiotics never worked long term.

I give her colloidal silver three times a day and tell her to swish it around her mouth and hold it in her mouth for as long as she can. It has worked miracles for her.

I am so grateful for this product. I have a hundred other stories from friends and family.”

— Jill S.

“No More Plaque on Our Teeth!”

“We gargle with colloidal silver after brushing and have no plaque on our teeth.”

— Glenda T.

“I Use Colloidal Silver in My Water Pik!”

“I’ve been using a Water-Pik for years! I think it’s easier on your teeth than flossing and it can get in places you can’t get with floss.

I regularly add a little colloidal silver to the reservoir. I also put a little vinegar in sometimes to for its plaque-fighting value.

If you’ve never used one before, you’ll probably want to start on the low setting and work your way up to the higher ones.”

— Angela K.

“Now I Can Brush My Teeth Without Bleeding!”

“…a week or so before I made my first batch of colloidal silver, my gums were getting very swollen and they would bleed easily and it would hurt to eat food sometimes. I’ve always had gum issues but not like this!

Well after using the micro-particle colloidal silver for like 2 days, swishing the stuff around in my mouth before swallowing it, it was completely gone and I could brush my teeth without it bleeding.

And there was no pain — I could even apply firm pressure while brushing, and it was fine!”

— Curt S.

“Brushing My Teeth With Colloidal Silver Keeps Plaque Down Big Time!”

“I also use colloidal silver to brush my teeth and it keeps the plaque down big time; I’ve used it on cuts and they heal like in four days.

This is a wonderful product and I’m so glad to be able to have my own generator and make my own.”

— MJS, Lansing, MI

“Healed My Gum Disease; Teeth Less Sensitive!”

“I personally always brush my teeth with it. It heals gum disease. My teeth are less sensitive now too.

I love this generator and all the help it gives to me and anyone else I hear needs it. I am so happy it is available to all of us!!! Thank you!”

— Ava C., Clearwater, FL

“Healed Painful Tooth in a Matter of Days!”

“Several years ago I had an infection in my tooth that hurt so bad that I couldn’t touch it without pain. I just used about a teaspoon of silver twice a day. In a day or two the pain had lessened. Not only did the pain go away but I was able to save the tooth.”

— M. Jansen, Scottsdale, AZ

“Keeps Toothbrush in Glassful of Colloidal Silver!”

“I also like to keep my toothbrush in a glass of colloidal silver to keep bacterial growth down.”

— Jake, Richland Center, WI

Using Colloidal Silver for Dental Problems

You can get a lot of great ideas reading real-life success stories like those above.

In fact, that’s one of my favorite ways of learning about how to use colloidal silver, i.e., reading the real-life experiences of others.

If you’d like to learn even more, you might want to consider reading through the following great articles on resolving tooth and dental problems with colloidal silver:

As you can see, colloidal silver can be a Godsend when it comes to dental problems. But take my advice:

Use colloidal silver preventively on your teeth and gums, on a regular daily basis, rather than waiting for serious dental problems to arise.

That way, you won’t have to take extraordinary measures to resolve painful dental problems caused by neglect, as some of the colloidal silver users (including myself) have had to do in the past.

If you’re anything like me and the multitudes of others, when you begin using colloidal silver regularly as part of your daily oral health regimen you’ll find that plaque, bad breath, cavities, gum disease and yes, even root canal will gradually become a thing of the past!

Yours for the safe, sane and responsible use of colloidal silver,
