Most people are not clear when you need antibiotics for a toothache. Let’s take a quick look at the two main types of a toothache.
Antibiotics are medications used to treat infection or pain that you are experiencing. There are different types of antibiotic used for different treatment. There are surgery antibiotics used in surgery and other types for a different reason. In this article, we will discuss the antibiotic for your dental problem.
The first occurs during the development of pulpitis – inflammation of the nerve inside the tooth. Typically, pulpitis occurs from the cavity, or, in simple terms, holes in the tooth. When caries comes close to the nerve, it begins to react to various stimuli: hot, cold, sweet.
First, a little and the pain quickly goes away, then it hurts more and does not go away for a long time. In this case, the pain is caused by an inflammatory process inside the tooth. Pulpit pain should be treated with anti-inflammatory drugs, such as ibuprofen. And, of course, rather run to the dentist, because by cleaning the nerve and sealing the canal, he can save you from this pain.
The second type of pain is caused by an infection in an already dead tooth. Such a tooth does not clearly respond to various stimuli, such as hot/sweet, but simply hurts. Often this is a tooth in which a channel is already sealed. And such a tooth hurts because microbes have settled in it. The pain in the dead tooth means that microbes have settled somewhere.
With the accumulation of pus, the pressure inside increases, and this is manifested by pain as the abscess develops. Pus production does not slow down for a second. Then it needs to go somewhere. With a favorable outcome, the pus breaks out over the gum and flows into the mouth. The patient adds purulent sauce to all dishes, but, as a rule, does not feel great inconvenience. But, if pus breaks somewhere inside the head and neck, then shout guards. What is developed in the common people is called flux? The flux is deadly because if an abscess squeezes any important vessels or nerves, the saddest outcome is not excluded. And then relatives will whisper with horror: “Imagine what that tooth died from.” It’s with this second pain caused by the infection that antibiotics should be taken.
Which antibiotics are the most effective? This will tell you a dentist, to which you most likely need to run. And he will prescribe you most likely something penicillin-like. In America, the most common antibiotics for dental infections are amoxicillin, penicillin, augmentin, clindamycin, clarithromycin, and azithromycin. If you decide to self-medicate and just take antibiotics from the shelf that your grandfather has been prescribed for prostatitis, then they may not be very effective against your dental infection. Keep this in mind.
