Avatar f tn It would be nice if anyone would answer if cipro is an ok antibiotic for a tooth infection. I had a crown come off and dentist said I needed root canal. they tried but said root was too narrow and I had to go to specialist. They gave me a prescription for amoxil for one other tooth, but I didn't6 fill it because it was just sensitive one day. But now the one they were working on has flared up and the gum is swollen and red.
Avatar f tn it sounds like it may be an abscess not sure what cipro is but if so long for dentist see if your doctor may see you and give you anti-biotic s as they have different types of meds for different body conditions, if the swelling gets bad or hurts your dentist must offer an appointment within i think 48 hrs good luck
1726450 tn?1316286111 I am on week 17 SOC, did first 12 weeks with Incivek. I have an abscess tooth. Badly infected. Tried Penicillin VK, infection stayed. Trying Clindamycin- not helping to well so far after 3 days. Doctors office hard to get a hold of and dentist is out of ideas. I will ask my Dr office tomorrow- but need to throw this question out: Question: Who had antibiotics for dental infection during treatment and what antibiotic worked for you?
Avatar n tn The abcess could be due to tooth infections, tooth abscess or periodontal disease. The actual source needs to be tackled for the infection to resolve. Check to see if you are a diabetic. This can be detected by a simple blood test. You will need to consult your doctor who may need to do a sputum culture and sensitivity to determine what antibiotic the organism is susceptible to. He may even ask for blood test and an X ray.
Avatar n tn Hi! I recently had a root canal and was prescribed clindamycin too....I too have allergies to other antibiotics. The clindomycin did NOTHING and the infection got worse so now I am on CIPRO which was my own idea. I don't know if it is working 100% yet, but at least the infection has died down and I can tell it is helping......
3148906 tn?1343699395 I"m on amoxicillin for an infected tooth, which is getting extracted wednesday afternoon. I have indigestion right now. It feels like something is stuck in my throat and my stomach is bloated. I know it's the spicy food I at a few hours ago. I'm suppose to take my 500 mg of amoxicillin tonight but I'm concerned because of the indigestion. How long do I have to wait to take an antiacid after taking the antibiotic amoxicillin.
Avatar n tn I do not wish to alarm you, but you may be developing a cellulitis especially if there was no drainage into the tooth with an abscess that has been present for quite some time. Amoxcillin is a good antibiotic, but I find that with more aggressive strains of bacteria, Clindamycin 300-450 mg every six hours for a week is required.
Avatar m tn 00 PM today for my tooth to be evaluated, and I went to this Dentist for the first time. She said the tooth has a small crack (it's almost all filling material anyway), but she said the X-Ray showed an Abscess below the root. (There is absolutely no pain, just an odd feeling when I bite down) Well, the funny thing is that she put me on Penn VK 500 mg QID. My wife seems to think it a bit much, but I get to test my theory about the PVCs.
Avatar n tn One doc suggested Cipro for a month, which I have taken and found no relief. She found I had a sinus infection. Now, my drainage is clear, and I have no fever. However, I have suffered chronic allergies and sinusitis forever. My prior CT, in June, showed minor blockage in two sinus cavities (I can't rember which--I think the E-one was one)However, I was never treated for the minor blockage. The ENT specialist told me mild was nothing to worry about.
Avatar f tn knock on wood i have great teeth now but wow that creaky sound when they pull a tooth...congrats CFS56 i totally related to your answer and laughed for the first time today about thinking about how close the hospital was and being wheeled out...been there for sure in thought.....
Avatar m tn Are you taking an antibiotic for the abscess or is it viral.I took Ibuprofen 800mg every 4 hours max 2400 mg for my tooth abscess and it helped the pain.I also has an antibiotic here that i took.It was cipro that I had left over from a bladder infection.
Avatar n tn Over the last ten months I have been treated by several doctors/dentists initially for a skin blemish below my lower lip that wouldn't heal (a culture and sensitivity was done which only indicated normal skin bacteria, no mrsa), an oral ulcer that would not heal and a painful tooth which felt like I had an abscess. The tooth involved had previously had a root canal on it 1 1/2 years prior. Xray's were taken of the area by my dentist, including a panorama of the jaw and no problems were detected.
Avatar m tn One of the causes of maxillary sinusitis is a tooth abscess that has leaked the infection into the maxillary sinus. The teeth may be X-rayed to find this. • Ethmoid sinuses. If infection occurs, you may get puffy eyes and pain between them. The sides of your nose may get tender to the touch, your nose may get stuffy, and you won’t be able to smell so well. You may also get a splitting headache, felt most intensely in the forehead. • Sphenoid sinuses.
Avatar n tn I believe that during this general period and the preceding year I took one or more unusual antibiotics - for abdominal pain (suspected infection/PID) and a tooth abscess. Three months later whilst on an outdoor education camp my big toes went numb. A week later my right arm started stinging, a week after that both legs went numb up to the knees and my right hand went numb down one side. Then came muscle weakness and fatigue that came in great black waves.
Avatar n tn I think you should get some normal chewing gum and every now and then have one instead,do it really slowly,but just try to get in the habit of taking a non nicotine chewy when you can,gradually you will swap over to the nico free chewing gum,but you may end up chewing for life,and this can lead to decreased tooth cavities,not such a bad thing really.
Avatar n tn Well, I've always had regular checkups at my dentists over the years and none had noticed that I've had a tooth that has been dying for several years. It finally got painful so after further checking I had a root canal...said I had roots clear into my sinus. Two weeks after the root canal my eustation tube thing went away..........after NINE YEARS of it!!!
211940 tn?1267884866 I have been looking everywhere for an answer, maybe someone here can. About 1 year ago I began having pain in my right upper arm, between the shoulder and elbow, about mid arm where the biceps brachii muscle or brachialis muscle is. I went to my Primary Physician who said it was a torn brachialis muscle. Since I was working at a 2nd job, I thought it might be job related so I went through the whole Workman's Comp issue.
Avatar n tn But, good news for me is that I am a lawyer...right here in the New York City where they are. Too bad for them. They have been accused of taking bad claims that women have left concerning the bad,horrific reactions they have had off the message boards....they get their on employees to post good messgaes on the same sites. If you would like to join my class-action lawsuit please write me at feedincorporated at hotmail. Do not use Monistat ! or any monistat product.
Avatar n tn Ok, so I've been putting up with on again, off again itching for months on my labia, near my vaginal opening. Never "diagnosed" with HPV but I did get rid of a suspected wart this past year. Can you have a bacterial infection without discharge? It drives me CRAZY sometimes, the only thing that calms it is gold bond ointment, which is minty and refreshing but I'd like no itch. No "rash" that I can see, unless I give in and scratch.
