Antibiotics For Dental Infection

Antibiotics For Dental InfectionThe preferred and favoured  antibiotic for a dental infection is Amoxicillin.

However, some bacteria and infections have started to build up a resistance to this penicillin. Therefore, there must be other options available to dental professionals as a backup or as the first port of call. The other aspect here, also, is that some people are in fact allergic to penicillin so other option must be available for patient safety and wellbeing.

Other antibiotics that a dentist may use to deal with an oral infection are:

  • Penicillin VK
  • Erythromycin
  • Clindamycin
  • Ampicillin and sulbactam
  • Ticarcillin and clavulanate
  • Metronidazole

It is always important to seek treatment from a trained professional rather than trying to diagnose and treat the issue yourself. Many internet pharmaceuticals offer antibiotics online, however, only a professional can prescribe the correct antibiotics after a thorough examination.

Alternatives To Antibiotics

Some dental infections cannot be treated with antibiotics. When an infection has formed in the inner pulp of the tooth then antibiotics are not effective. Therefore, a special procedure called a root canal treatment is performed to remove the pulp safely and stop the spread of infection. Here at Pearl Dental Clinic, we have highly trained dentists to ensure the best result for your problem. Also, we have a Specialist Endodontist to perform even the most complex root treatments.

If you have developed an oral infection or need emergency dental treatment for anything else then you can call the clinic on 0208 547 9997. In addition to this, a walk-in emergency dental service is available. You can utilise this by visiting us at, 5 Vale Parade, Kingston Vale, London SW15 3PS. To help keep emergencies at bay you can also access our complete general dental care treatments with our highly trained dental staff and specialist. We look forward to assisting you very soon, here at Pearl Dental Clinic.
