What antibiotic should be taken for an abscessed molar tooth?

Your dentist will know which type is right for you. I had an abscessed tooth too. I had to be on antibiotics for 4 weeks to get rid of the infection. Then I had to have a root canal done. It did not hurt at all and I am afraid of the dentist. Amoxicillin, Biaxin or clindamycin are often used in treating dental infections.

The best antibiotic for an abscessed tooth can depend on how bad the infection is and which the dentist prefers. Sometimes penicillin is best if the infection is bad. Amoxicillin is part of the penicillin family and is associated with the treatment of abscessed teeth.

Can you use Bactrim to treat an Abscessed tooth?

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.
