Can antibiotics heal an abscessed tooth enough that a root canal is unnecessary?

Most likely not, as the problem with abscessed teeth is that the tooth is damaged and allowing bacteria into the pulp and root cavity. While antibiotics may clear up the infection for now, they will not prevent another infection after you are off of the antibiotics. Nor will they prevent the tooth from becoming more damaged. Unfortunately, the only cure for a bad tooth is a visit to the dentist or oral surgeon's chair.

Yes, you should have an abscessed tooth either removed (or a root canal) done. It depends on what the dentist says.

Most dentists prefer to save your teeth if at all possible so discuss the root canal as an option.


What is the difference between an infected tooth and an abscessed tooth?

An infected tooth is an abscessed tooth. You need antibiotics quickly so you don't allow the infection to get out of control (sepsis).

If you don't complete the antibiotic therapy, the infection can linger and return resistant to the same antibiotic, requiring more in depth therapy.
