== == == == It is possible to treat an abscess naturally. I broke a tooth and developed a very large abscess above it. I had so much intense pain I was ready to drag myself into the emergency room . I did some research online for natural remedies ( I study and practice holistic / natural healthcare anyways ). You can find information in the Materia Medica which is the homeopathic version of the Physician's Desk Reference. I started taking Hepar Sulf 30C every few hours the first day and then 2x /day thereafter, Hypericum Perforatum 30x and Arnica Montana for pain when needed and I also take Newton's Homeopathic remedy for fever and bacterial infection ( 6 drops on the tongue 2x a day ). I started seeing results in only a few days. The abscess has shrunken from the size of a large pea that was very painful to the size of a peppercorn. Even my dentist didn't even notice it when I went for a checkup the other day until I pointed it out to him. The pain is GONE and I expect the abscess should be gone w/i the next few days with continued use of the remedies. Homeopathic and natural remedies WORK because they use the body's ability to heal itself. These remedies are available at your local health store or online and are VERY inexpensive.
If you have no dental insurance you may want to consider joining a dental / medical discount plan like Careington, Alliancehealthcard or similar. They're very cheap, $6-$12/mo and can save you as much as 80% on certain services when you use providers on their plan. Go to www.dentalplans.com where you compare a number of plans.
An abscessed tooth can be treated with a root canal and a crown, or with an apicoectomy (if the root canal has failed) or with an extraction. Only your dentist can tell you which option is best for your individual situation.
yes it can. I went to the e.r. with a tooth ache and terrible headache from it and this is what they gave me
Normally it is quite difficult for any antibiotic to get to the abscess in an abscessed tooth. The infection is usually somewhere in the root and does not have a good blood supply. If your dentist gave you Bactrim, he probably did not give it to you to treat the abscess, but to treat the infection in the bone below the tooth. The usual way to treat the abscess, is to drill it out. It is not normally just treated with an antibiotic.
Any penicillin based medication will help. That would work wonderfully and should be fairly cheap.
Cleftin is a prescription drug that treats infections caused by bacteria. Since an abscessed tooth is infected, the Cleftin should be helpful in treating it.
If there is redness around the tooth and or swelling.
Yes, an abscessed tooth often results in raised serum c reactive levels.
Get the tooth fixed and the swelling will settle by itself.
Options include extraction and root canal treatment, however antibiotics are sometimes necessary as it is often verry dificult to extract/root treat acutely abscessed teeth. Dr Nicholas Manning BDS Glasg MFDS (RCSEng)
Oddly enough, many famous people have died from an abscessed tooth. For example, fashion designer, Hugo Boss, and Jethro Tull musician, John Glasscock, both died from abscessed teeth.
Abscessed tooth only happens for three reasons; when teeth are damaged such as an untreated cavity, a person brushed their teeth properly, and lastly the gum diseases. Those are the three causes to an abscessed tooth.
Definitely - specifically and upper wisdom tooth. Often the roots of wisdom teeth run into the sinus cavity and even some of the upper molars. If the tooth is abscessed and infected, it can cause serious problems. Infections in the mouth runs two ways, to the heart or to the brain. Always, get an abscessed tooth treated immediately.
yES IT CAN BECAUSE i AM CURRENTLY TAKING THIS ANTIBIOTIC FOR AN ABSCESSED TOOTH WHICH MY DENTIST PRESCRIBED
Go to a Pharmacy & get some clove oil. If you can't get to a Pharmacy put a drop of whiskey on your tooth.
I believe so. I was just prescribed ciprofloxacin for my abscessed tooth so it's safe though in my case it doesn't seem to be working very well.
Yes, abcessed tooth cause heart problem.

Your doctor will give you amoxicillin with clavulanic acid, cephadroxil with clavulanic acid or cefuroxime with clavulanic acid for abscessed tooth along with incision and drainage.
