Then, the proper choice of antibiotics can be selected. Surgical debridement of the infection and biopsy of the tissue is also indicated. Generally speaking, ciprofloxacin is not the best antibiotic to treat infections in the mouth.

However, does anyone have any advice on some home treatment or OTC medicine that I could use for this infection. This has been going on (off and on) for months, and this pain and burning is becoming unbearable. Also, several of my remaining teeth on that side has become loose. I have had teeth extracted in the past because of this problem. Thank you.
I have no cavity in any of my teeth and have never undergone any kind of dental treatment. But now a lump of skin has also appeared on the extreme right lower end of my gum. It is quite aching, causing me trouble in chewing , sensitivity is still there. Kindly tell me the remedy. I also want you to inform that I am also suffering from cold and cough for the last one month and in this whole duration I have already consumed two dozens antibiotics (amoxcyllin) but to no relief.
Hi, I had a gum abcess that needed 3 courses of antibiotics. Finally the lower right molar was extracted as this was the origin of the infection. This was 4 days ago but the abcess is still there and I have some throbbing pain in the lower jaw and ear on that side. The extraction site has white spots beside it.
I encourage you to at least see a dentist to get a proper check up to see what exactly is going on. No treatment may be needed that day. He/she may prescribe antibiotics and pain medication initially. Your doctor may provide some laughing gas or prescription medications to help relax you prior to treatment. There are also dentists who actually put people to sleep and perform dentistry that way. But the most important thing is to get it checked out as soon as possible.
Okay so I have a gum infection around my wisdom tooth, pericoronitis. i've been on antibiotics, amoxicillin for 3 days now and not much has changed. my throat is starting to hurt so im scared the infection is spreading. i dont have dental insurance so i dont want to remove the tooth unless its the last resort. I want to get a operculectomy to remove the gums and hopefully it'll solve the infection. if it comes back, then i will really consider getting the tooth out.
I was put on Amoxicillin and a root canal was performed on June 23, two days later an incision was made in the gum to clean out some of the infection, the next day a small hole was made in the upper gum to try and drain some of the infection. On July 1st I was sent to an oral surgeon who did a panoramic of my face and there was infection the size of a walnut up into my sinus. He put me on Augmentin and on July 8th he pulled the tooth.
You may just check out any frank cavity or food imapaction area in related teeth to the swelling. In such case you may need antibiotics and root canal treatment of the affected tooth with the help of a dentist. Other possibilties could be pyogenic granuloma, fibroma, periodontal abscess etc. Check out with local dentist to confirm.
I was told I need a root canal and given antibiotics. After the infection cleared up and stopped hurting I forgot about it, with the intention of eventually going back and getting it taken care of. Well now I have a painless lump on the outside gum right below that tooth. It seems to have appeared over night. I thought I felt food in there and noticed it. It feels like a blister but doesn't hurt at all. Is this something I can wait a few days and see if it goes away, I just discovered it.

Dear all, I started having a tooth pain on April 28th, which was caused by wisdom teeth infection. It wasn't that bad, and the gum near the wisdom teeth wasn't very swollen, but just a little tender. I went to a walk-in clinic, and the physician assistant prescribed penicillin for me (4X500mg a day, and for 5 days.) I started taking this medicine on May 2nd, and the pain was gone by May 4th. I finished the medicine on Thursday May 6th.
Your dentist needs to re do your root canal treatment. 7 antibiotics per day is not good. Take them until your sinus (swelling)goes down and then stop. You'll do yourself harm ifyou take them for along period of time. Antibiotics do one thing - they stop infection from spreading. Your body takes over and gets rid of the infection for the time being. But as long as your infected tooth is left untreated or re root filled, the sinus will return.
Geno: 3 Cleared: @ between 8 and 12week. Currently: On 15th week of treatment. (total 24) My gums are bleeding alot and i feel like my teeth are loosened. I cannot tooth brush at all.

The antibiotics should ideally contain the infection until your insurance starts and you can get treatment. It may not be a bad idea to switch your prescription in case it not working. Is the swelling significant? Or is it smaller like a pimple?
the dentist kept giving me antibiotics saying he could not take the teeth out because of infection.
If the "gum boil" is involved with the tooth that is having the RCT then it should be resolving with antibiotics and the treatment. I have seen some dramatic reductions in fistulas with sucessful root canal treatment. If the gum boil is chronic and does not resolve then further treatment will be necessary.
I was placed on Flagyl first, followed by clindamycin. Also in the mix of everything I had a gum infection and was given amoxicillin, which I stopped taking due to getting a yeast infection from it (treated successfully with monistat). Everything considered I’ve had an entire pharmacy prescribed to me. During the week that I was waiting for my boyfriend’s retest, I noticed some yellow discharge. I felt for sure he would test positive again, but felt relieved when he came back fine.
I've been taking a combination of antibiotics Metronizadol and amoxicillin since a week ago for severe gum infections (after the first round of treatment of antibiotics did not clear a milder infection and it seemed the bacteria became more resistent and aggressive) and I began to have to clear my bowels five to six times a day. But the stool was not liquid but normal (hard) though darker than usual.
I don't have the money to run around to find out what the cause is and for the treatment. Another week has gone by, they put me on antibiotics and weak pain relievers. The pain is not as sever but now I am noticing a liquid filled lump where the gum is swollen between the two back molars on the outside of the lower gum. Have you ever seen this? What is it? What is the cause and what is the cure? Thank you so much for your help!
I have two failed implants due to infection which did not respond to Clindamycin. I also got a bad reaction to Clindamycin a feeling of big lump in throat, sore throat and severe heartburn. In spite of the fact that I drank at least 10ounces of water with each pill. My question is since I'm allergic to penicillin. What antibiotic is effective for teeth and gum infections???? Thank you.
Else your doctor may suggest you antibiotics to help heal the infection.
I have a molar that has a crown on it and, in January, had a root canal retreatment on the same tooth. Initially, I did get an infection which was treated by antibiotics, and then was fine. However, recently (e.g., August), the tooth seems a bit achy (on and off) and the gum line looks white-ish underneath the crown. The gum is not sore, however, and does not seem imflamed. Is this white gum normal with a root canal?
After finishing the first course of antibiotics, the infection had not gone. I was given another course of the same two antibiotics and was advised to have the tooth out where the abcess had been. This I did two weeks ago and although the swelling has gone, my eye is still quite blurry and bloodshot. Since then, I have had another tooth out (a week ago) and am now on antibiotics again because it became infected. My tounge has also gone a very dark colour-blackish.
Thanks again for the above - I guess this is just a case of waiting for the results. I have completed the treatment given by the GUM clinic. I have one final question which will help me cope with the wait. I'm still pretty concerned by the "puss cells" found as discussed above. As far as I can see it, the results could go the following ways: 1. Negative - end of story, lesson learned. The puss cells were a result of something else. However, I'm a bit unsure of the other scenarios.
even the vibrations in head. Search on internet shows possible infection into brain, If this were so can I take antibiotics and clear up sym. then have wisdom t. removed. or is it more complicated than that. Desperate for advice. Randy Have gone to 2 other hospitals for advice they said if I have ins. I can make an appt. So advice to see dr. will be a dead end as I cant even get one to take payments.
