MOLE ON MY PUTHIE
Poor BOB is your mouth still giving you trouble? Now did you do those hot as you can handle very salty rinses?


Dr. Chris (DDS)
As a dentist I can assure you that antibiotics will help reduce the infection, but an abscess never really goes away until the tooth is fixed. Depending on how bad the infection is and how large it has developed will determine how long it will take the antibiotics to begin to reduce the abscess. You will also need to get the tooth that has abscessed fixed as antibiotics are only a temporary fix for the problem, eventually the infection will return and is usually worse the next time around. The only real treatment for an abscess is to either have root canal therapy or have the tooth extracted, if not the tooth will continue to abscess which can cause very serious health conditions. If you have been on the antibiotics for several days then you should call your regular dentist, he or she will need to either prescribe a stronger antibiotic or opt to fix the tooth and prescribe more antibiotics post procedure. Until then try using ice packs and ibuprofen, both of these will help reduce and prevent any swelling and will also help with pain control. Good luck and I hope you are feeling better very soon.
