I have an antibiodic for tmp and I have a bad tooth which causes the roof of my mouth and gum to swell with infection it is very painfull and I do not have insurance. I was wondering if this antibiodic was something that would treat this infection... ## Sulfamethoxazole + Trimethoprim can in-fact be used to treat a tooth infection, but it is not usually the first choice for dental infections since many of them respond better to other alternatives, such as Penicillin and Amoxicillin. Learn More: Sulfamethoxazole + Trimethopriml Details I would also consider speaking with a dentist about the underlying cause of this infection, just to make sure it's not something that will be reoccurring. I hope you get well soon! ## Thank you so much. I endeed got it filled today and begun taking it.... ...

Skin Infection Antibiotics
Can smz/tmp tab treat mouth sores ## Hi Linda, This question has an interesting response because Sulfamethoxazole + Trimethoprim can actually cause sores, ulcers, or white spots in the mouth or on the lips, as a rare but possible side effect. If these mouth sores that you're describing are related to an infection, I can confirm that this medication is also used for treatment of both tooth and gum infections; although it does not specify if mouth sores are included in this category of treatment. If I were in your shoes I would consider trying clove essential oil for any dental or mouth related infections or sores. There are also a good number of natural home remedies which you can find online, if these are identified as canker sores. Please post back with any additional information s... ...

dental antibiotics
what antibiotics are mainly used for wisdom teeth infections ## I'm not too fond of prescription drugs, but I think Cephalexin is one of common interest. It is an antibiotic used to treat various types of infections. To view information about this drug please click on the link below... Although I personally suggest looking into Clove Essential Oil. It's a natural remedy for dental issues as far as alleviating tooth aches (anaesthetic properties) and fighting infections (antibacterial, antimicrobial, antifungal properties). Just make sure you don't use a lot of it at once (no more than a 2-4 drops in the desired area, as it is very concentrated and may be toxic in large doses. This generally is not something to worry about as you won't need more than the minimum amount to... ...

doxycycl for swollen cheek due to tooth infection
wondering if i can use 100 mg doxycycl to reduce swelling from toothache infection? cheek swollen but no money to see dentist at present ## Doxycycline is an antibiotic that's used to treat various types of infections, but trying to self-treat an infection in such a manner could create several problems. First of all, if these are leftover antibiotics from treating another infection, you may not have enough to fully eradicate the infection. Next is the risk of developing antibiotic resistant bacteria, if that is the case. And another is the fact that is will not clear up the underlying issue that caused the infection, which means it will just keep returning and causing more problems. You do need to see your dentist as soon as possible. You can learn more Doxycycline details here. Are... ...

Is sulfameth/trimethoprim Used For Tooth Infections
My mother has an abscess tooth and there is not enough left to pull. She does not have insurance so she can not pay to get it cut out. She is prescribed an antibiotic but cannot afford it. I had an infection a few weeks ago and still have some of my antibiotics left and i need to know if she can take them for this. ## Having 'some' of your antibiotics isn't going to be enough to give her a full course and destroy the infection. (You should have finished all of them, when you were taking them, actually.) In addition, even a full course of antibiotics is not going to solve the problem, with a tooth in that shape, she will just keep getting recurring infections and letting a dental infection like that go untreated can be very dangerous. What I'd recommend is looking for a d... ...

Tooth Infection from my wisdom tooth
Can cephalexin antibiotics be used to cure an infection in the gum from a wisdom tooth ## Yes, it is an antibiotic and is effective at treating many types of infections. The issue, however, is that if you have a bad tooth that's causing an infection, it can help clear up the infection, but will not fix the underlying problem. You will need to see a dentist for that. Learn more Cephalexin details here. You also need to make sure that you have enough of the antibiotic to finish a full course of it, or run the risk of developing antibiotic resistant bacteria.

Can I Take Amoxk Clav875125tabsandoz For Tooth Infection
it has gg o n the left side an n7 on the right side. it,s a white pill.amox/k clav875 125tabsandoz for tooth infection ## To answer your question, yes, you can take these pills for a tooth infection. Amoxicillin is included in the list of popularly prescribed antibiotics for tooth infections. Its effectiveness however, depends on how far the tooth infection has spread; and if required, combination therapy is followed. The effectiveness of amoxicillin for addressing tooth infection also largely depends upon taking it in correct dosage, which is decided by the concerned doctor. A common dosing method for a tooth infection is taking one pill 3 times a day, (i.e., after every 8 hours) for 10 days. I would recommend checking with your doctor to verify what might be best for you though. I hop... ...

amoxicillin for gum infection
I have a gum infection because I have a bad tooth that needs to be pulled. The dentist prescribed me Amoxicillin 875 mg. I'm just wondering how long will it take for my gums to return back to normal. I've been taking the pills for 7 days and I have 3 days left. ## Hello, Shauna! How are you doing? The general rule for antibiotics is that you should start to see improvement after taking them for a full 3 days. If you still have swelling, it may not be the right one to treat the infection you have and you may need to ask about taking something else. When are you having the tooth extracted? It would be best to do it after the infection has improved, otherwise it may not numb properly. ## As rightlly said by Verwon, at seven days you shud ave had an improvement if not complete heali... ...

TOOTH
i have an infection on tooth extraction site prescribed clavemel forte 500 3 times a day for 5 days how long will it take for infection clear please. ## Hi Annabel, The infection should be gone close to or by the time you run out of the Clavamel forte (Amoxicillin + Clavulanic Acid). If the infection is still there after the 5 days of antibiotics, you'll want to speak with your doctor. In addition, I have heard that vanilla extract works well for tooth infections as well as clove essential oil. I have personally used both of those oils for an area on my gum that became swollen and it healed the area in a couple days. Those oils also helped to numb the pain I was experiencing, so it may do the same for you as well. You can learn more about this drug on the page for Amoxicillin + Clav... ...

I was prescribed ciprofloxacin for five days by my dentist and on the forth day I suddenly developed severe lower back pain, and generalized aches and pain which have lasted for past month and only gradually beginning to subside. I only suspected the ciproxin when a friend was taking it for chest infection and developed pain in Achilles tendon and is finding it difficult to walk. ## I was prescribed ciprofloxin hcl 500 mg tabs for a tooth infection.

Doxycycl Hyc Cap 100mg For Dental Infections
Will this medicine help prevent infections after having teeth pulled I just had total extractions and was wworried about infections will this help ## Hi Tjay, Based on my research, antibiotics can be used to treat a tooth infection as well as prevent infections in some cases. I recommend that you just keep your mouth as clean and hygienic as possible, you can try rinsing with hydrogen peroxide if your dentist allows. Clove essential is also something you may want to look into trying because it does have antibacterial properties and is great for hygiene of the gums of teeth. Antibiotics are so harsh on the body and can cause lots of other issues, I wouldn't use them unless you have to. I hope this advice helps! ...

Toothache-Bubble
I have a toothache due to a bad root canal resulting in infection. They gave me antibiotics, 800mg of Ibprofen and 500mg of tylenol ( they only work when i combine them together and wear off in about 3 hours or less). My pain level is really high, and today I woke up with a bubble on each side of my tooth. Is this normal? ## The bubbles are probably due to an abscessed infection and if so, then you should contact the dentist, again. You might need a stronger antibiotic, or the teeth may need to be extracted. Are there any other questions? ## I recommend you go back to your dentist asap. You seem to have an infection some where. Drink plenty of fluids and take antibiotics to remove infection. toothachepainreliefsite.org ...

Deltacortril Prednisolone used for Bells Palsy?
Recently I had an absess, went on antibiotics and got the tooth removed. At the same time my left hand side of my face pulled down somewhat - my lips at the side, my eyelid, hard to talk or smile, face distorted. My doctor says it might be Bells Palsy. Does this normally happen with an absess or maybe they are not related? Is Bells Palsy temporary? My Doctor prescribed the Deltacortil Ent 5mg starting with 8 for the first 4 days then reducing after that. Can you advise on any of this, Thanks ## You can learn more about Bell's Palsy here: It's basically when something causes paralysis of some of the facial nerves and yes, it can sometimes be caused from a bad infection that spreads.
