Prophylaxis means prevention . . . I do not believe any dentist or doctor in their right minds would prescribe an antibiotic to protect your teeth against a potential future infection.
You must see a dentist, who will prescibe an antibiotic for seven days.
Penicillin or amoxycillin is the primary choice. But 15% of people are allergic to that antibiotic. Only a dentist or a physician can chose the best antibiotic for you.
yES IT CAN BECAUSE i AM CURRENTLY TAKING THIS ANTIBIOTIC FOR AN ABSCESSED TOOTH WHICH MY DENTIST PRESCRIBED
Probably, its a broad spectrum antibiotic, which means it covered a large portion of bacteria, but go to the dentist good luck
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.
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.
No, sulfur would not be used as a medical treatment. Possibly you are confusing it with sulfa drugs, an early antibiotic. Consult your dentist if you actually have an abscess. This is not something to treat with a home remedy.
yes but with medical treatment by a dentist
Children need to only have one dentist appointment a year.
