Can alcohol kill infections in the mouth?

I heard that vodka or something with alcohol if used like a mouth was can kill bacteria and/or infections in the mouth. i have a chipped touth and im worried about getting an infection so i was wondering if swooshing some vodka in my mouth could prevent it.

A chipped tooth will not cause an infection UNLESS it is at the gum line. Listerine has plenty of alcohol to killl anything that may be growing in there, of course you don't get the benefit of a buzz unless you swallow it.
