Amoxicillin for infected tooth

Common Questions and Answers about Amoxicillin for infected tooth


Avatar f tn I had an infected tooth pulled on Wednesday of this week. Been taking Amoxicillin for 10 days prior, before that Keflex, just couldn't get rid of the infection. Dentist didn't want to do root canal, so the extraction was planned. I told him when I got there that I felt that the infection was still there. He told me that it was still infected as he could tell when he injected the pain meds.
Avatar f tn About two weeks ago I went to the dentist as I had terrible pain in my front tooth and gums. I was put on ponstan for pain and amoxicillin for the infection for five days. After the five days my tooth and gums felt fine but then a couple of days later the pain in my tooth flared up again. I'm afraid that my tooth may be infected and I will have to get root canal done which can be quite expensive. Is there anyone here that can confirm if the infection has spread to my tooth.
Avatar n tn I have an infected tooth which has to be extracted in the next few days but as of now I was prescribed 250 mg of Amoxicillin and have to take it 3 times a day. Since Wednesday I have taken seven doses and for the last few hours I've been experiencing and odd feeling in my mouth/on my tongue. I guess I'd say there's a slightly warm and numb feeling on my tongue. I wouldnt say it feels like a film is on my tongue, but maybe dry mouth? It's hard to describe.
Avatar n tn The dentist first prescribed amoxicillin for the infection. It has been over ten days, and I have pain and swelling in my lower cheek. Upon calling my dentist, I asked for a stronger antibotic (hence I have a tolerence of amoxicillin due to years of usage) he denied and let me know I needed to have tooth immediately extracted or the infection would spread. I do not have the funds currently this week to get it extracted. I have a prescription for amoxicillin that I have not used.
Avatar f tn My lower left wisdom tooth is infected. I am scheduled to get it extracted in a week from tomorrow. I first went to the dentist three weeks ago and he prescribed me amoxicillin, which I took and the pain and swelling went away. I then went to the oral surgeon a week later for a consultation. He said I had bone loss near the wisdom tooth from the infection, which scared me. He told me to wait to take another dose of amoxicillin until the day before the extraction.
Avatar n tn After the extraction I left it for a couple of days as I'd expected it to hurt but finally decided to go back last thursday, she said it was a little infected, cleaned up the sight with what smelled like tcp and put some sort of cloth on it which she said would fall out on its own,she also perscribed me 3x250mg amoxicillin a day for 5 days.
Avatar n tn Usually we prescribe amoxicillin or penicillin for oral infections. You may want to call your doctor and ask for a prescription and see whats recommended for you, especially if you are sensitive or allergic to particular antibiotics.
Avatar f tn I have a broken/infected tooth in the back of my mouth that I'm going to get extracted sometime next week. Keflex was prescribed to me to ward off the infection but I experienced extreme nausea, dizziness (as warned on the RX label)...but to such a degree that I had to lie down for days. If I got up, the symptoms rushed back. I called the dentist and was pulled off of Keflex and put on Amoxicllian. For the pain I was given Percocet.
Avatar m tn I took them for tooth infection by the way, not for some std
Avatar n tn I was given amoxicillin 4 days ago for a sinus infection and sinus pressure and she said my throat looked fine. Now, after consistently taking the medication my throat is sore to the point of not being able to swallow, the right side of my neck is swollen from my lymph nodes and painful to the touch or even turning my head, and it's even made my jaw/mouth/cheek start tingling and feeling slightly numb. What the heck is going on?
Avatar f tn He saw a doctor and strep throat and mono were ruled out as a cause. The doctor prescribed Amoxicillin 3 times a day for 10 days. He felt fine after a couple of days and all was well. But about two weeks later the same symptoms returned (w/ a fever of 101.6) and the doctors ruled out strep and mono once again and put him on the same medication regimen. Could his symptoms possibly stem from a tooth abscess?? If not a tooth abscess what else do you think could be causing his symptoms?
2020005 tn?1476662562 I'm concerned about a risk of preterm labor with an extraction, although I know it's there with an infected tooth also. Anyone have any experience with this?? Thanks!
Avatar n tn Prior to starting treatment all my blood work looked good. My tooth is absessed and infected (tooth broke, filling fell out) and there's no saving it. The dentist prescribed antibiotics which I started today. Now the toenail I could probably just wait until it falls off naturally instead of having the doc remove it. It is not infected nor does it hurt. I've just kept it bandaged so as not to snag it on anything.
Avatar f tn Don't expect much from the Tylenol or Advil.........stuff like that really isn't strong enough for a major tooth ache kind of pain. If it gets worse, ask your doc for something........there is no reason to suffer! The warm compresses help while you're holding them to your face, but the relief doesn't last very long. I know some people swear by Ora-Gel for temporary relief and there are numerous herbs that are suppose to be really good for toothache.

Avatar m tn May 15 I developed an abscess. They can't get me in to get the 2 teeth pulled until June 25th. The next day, my cheek was the size of a baseball and the meds weren't helping. I went to th ER. Dr numbed it, cut a slit in it, gave me dilaudid &zophran, &sent me home with vicodin. RELIEF! June 3 it was back. I went to the dentist June 5. He couldn't see me. They called in 825mg amoxicillin 2x a day &the weakest dose of vicodin.
Avatar n tn filling for two weeks until I come back to finish it up) but the right one hasn't had any work done yet. I kept getting ear infections and tooth pain, so I've been placed on pain meds and amoxicillin/z-pak for the past month to keep things under control (not continuously mind you.
Avatar n tn 1. The dentist can't fit me in for a root canal for 30 more days. Is it safe to wait so long? 2. My cheek is very swollen, even though I'm taking antibiotics. (Today's my second day.) It didn't become swollen until I started the antibiotics. It's putting slight pressure on my eye. Is there reason for concern? I tried calling the dentist but the receptionist wouldn't let me talk to him and said not to worry; however, she's not a medical professional!
Avatar n tn I have an abscess on my upper back tooth as well and my dentist called me in amoxicillin , and Tylenol 3 for the pain. I have only been on them for 24 hours and my face is still swollen but the pain has eased ALOT. they say that when the infection is as bad as I let mine get it can take 2-3 days for the antibiotics to start working. Also when i was 12 weeks along I had 2 wisdom teeth removed as well with Novocain and my booger is just fine and I am 18 weeks. hopes this helps some.
Avatar n tn 5 yrs ago) root canal that had become infected. After the retreatment, I had some pain for 4-5 days. The pain is gone now, but I have a full, tight feeling in my jaw hinge.... I am afraid that there may be a bad infection still in my jaw bone..... It took almost a month for my endodontist appointment, as I was never in any severe pain, so they didn't rush me in... My dentist had me on Amoxicillin for a week.... Then the endodontist put me on clindamycin (?
Avatar n tn so he put me on Amoxicillin(antibiotics) and I had the tooth extracted last wednesday. My thyroid is still a little swollen, and today my throat felt very hot inside, shoudln't the antibiotics have worked by now?? can infections in the teeth really spread to the throat and thyriod area??
Avatar f tn I went to the dentist yesturday for a pain in my wisdom tooth that is growing and he prescribed me penicillin. After I took the first pill my tongue was swelling up and i vomited within two hours after. I feel back asleep and when I woke up my tooth was in the worst pain ever. I called the dentist and of course he isnt in today but prescribed me amoxicillin instead which i havent picked up yet. What can I do for this awful pain!?
1099361 tn?1258665857 If your down to one jump off motrin is far better for tooth pain or alieve that is what I use. Pain will seem worse when you first get of med your body wants its fix .Getting it all out of your system is the best and u are almost there .
Avatar f tn I had also brushed really well along teeth and gums first, then chewed the garlic and swished it around the infected tooth area. It burned for a while after I spit it out, then started to feel cool and now I taste the drainage.. which means of course, my infection's connected to sinus. But at least it's working this time. I hope I can get a dentist soon. Well, hope this helps.
Avatar m tn Hi. A week ago the gum around my bottom left wisdom tooth became really swollen and painful. I went to the dentist who prescribed me co-amoxiclav. After three days I went back as there had been no improvement. He prescribed me a concoction of Metronidazole (400mg) and Amoxicillin (500mg) which I have been taking for 3 days now (of a 7-day course). After a day of taking them I thought the infected gum was starting to get better, it was less painful to swallow, etc.
Avatar n tn Hi there, for 3 weeks I've had a terrible tooth infection. The first few days I fobbed it off as I'm scared of the dentist but started to hurt so bad I couldn't sleep. So, went to dentist and she couldn't see anything wrong, even with the X-ray but put me on amoxicillin and arranged another appointment.
Avatar n tn Then since my dose of pian meds went down I felt pain in my mouth, and found it to be a tooth and gum abscess, My stomach cramps tooth gum area infected. Went to DDS gave me amoxicillin. I have stomach cramps but my tooth and gum abscess seems to be getting better. Is this normal the stomach cramps ...I did ingest the infection from my mouth....I am thinking the amoxicillin will clear it all up soon its only been 65 hours been taking the amoxicilin... Thx........
Avatar f tn It too is dark gray. Is it possible that this bump that is straight out from tooth number 14 is infected but no pain. Possibly the root is infected? The only pain I have is if I press hard on the bump. It hurts in the palate. So scared to go to dentist Wednesday.
Avatar f tn I did my research online this seems to be a gum infection and/or abscess of the tooth and very painful for the cat. I've never grabbed this cat, nor will it let me take it somewhere, it moves tries to escape doesn't like to be grabbed. Please tell me if there is something i could take, any antibiotic or pain killer or anti inflammation, anything. Unfortunately i have not much knowledge of medicine.
