Antibiotics For Tooth Abscess

Antibiotics For Tooth AbscessA dentist may need to prescribe antibiotics for a tooth abscess to ensure that all infection is completely eliminated.

Some patients may be tempted to use leftover antibiotics, or purchase unprescribed ones from the internet. However, this is not a good idea. It can be dangerous and ineffective. Therefore, it is important to visit a dentist to obtain antibiotics for any type of dental issue. This ensures that they are the best quality and the right medication for the specific issue. Not all antibiotics will work for a tooth abscess.

Antibiotics For Tooth Abscess

As part of the treatment, the dental abscess may also need to be drained. This, combined with antibiotics and professional monitoring, should be enough to eradicate the abscess. An abscess could also have formed inside the tooth. If so then root canal treatment may also be needed.

It is important to note that dental abscesses can be very painful. However, if they burst a patient may feel immediate relief. This does not mean that the abscess is healing or that you do not need dental care. This relief is only temporary until the infection causes another build-up of pus. This type of issue will not go away on its own. It is essential you still seek help and advice as soon as possible.
