Cefdinir tooth infection

Common Questions and Answers about Cefdinir tooth infection


Avatar n tn can cefdinir be used for infection caused by a broken tooth?
Avatar f tn After amoxicillin and endo retreating tooth, it felt better and fever gone, but 2 days after ending antibiotics, infection returned with intensity, spread along jawline into nearby tooth, causing that tooth to then also need a root canal. I was put back on the same dose of amoxicillin, then tried clindamycin for a few days, but infection continued to spread - a large red hot lump (tablespoon sized) formed on my jawline, just under the 2 affected teeth.
Avatar n tn I was placed on Claritin as an antihistamine and given Cefdinir for infection. They also recommended a sinus flush using a neti pot. I've followed their instructions and now this morning I awaken to a swollen, almost bubble area where my upper wisdom tooth used to be. It is extremely sensitive tot he touch and if touched caused a piercing pain to shoot throughout my jaw. Is this a sign that the infection has traveled through the cavity where my wisdom tooth was?
Avatar n tn (Never should have let him do it--the gap returned 6 mos. later!) In January of 2014 I needed a root canal on the tooth; it was infected. Now, two months later, I'm finishing my 3rd antibiotic and I think the sinus infection I got following the RC is finally clearing up. Before the RC, my dentist told me he could just put a filling in after the RC, but the endo recommended a crown. I got a second opinion from another dentist who also recommends a crown.
Avatar n tn I have been on Levaquin for 15 days for a sinus infection. I just hate it. Anxiety, lightheadness, thrush. I first was put on Avelox for 7 days prior for the infection and it also gave me the anxiety, plus hyperventiation. It was a mess. My doctor wanted me to tough it out with the Avelox by taking xanax to counteract the anxiety/hypervention. I stopped it at 7 days and got on Levaquin. No hyperventilation with that, but yes with the anxiety. etc.
Avatar n tn Anyway, it still might be allergies or an infection, but I want people to know that this is another possiblity that medical doctors will overlook often. Like I said, I'm not 100% sold on the idea, but I'm convienced enough to keep going to the PT and chiro.
Avatar n tn I went to the doc and have been taking Septra for a possible sinus infection, but no improvement. I don't know what's linking the sinus condition with the other symptoms... virus (like chronic fatigue), allergies, infection, autoimmune disorder (hope not)? Any advice or comments welcome.
