I'm not sure exactly what you're asking but I think I know. There is a liquid form of Clindamycin that can be used for a tooth infection. However, I think you are asking if there is a mouth rinse available? No, typically Clindamycin is just taken orally and swallowed which is much easier than rinsing with it because the liquid tastes like raw sewage. It is also more effective to take this medicine systemically (orally and swallowed) because then it can reach the deep tissues of the mouth where the infection is likely to originate. If you think a mouth rinse is necessary, discuss this with your health care provider and ask if a medicine (mouth rinse) called Chlorhexidine Gluconate would work for your condition.
