What is the best antibiotic for an oral absess?
You will need to get it from your dentist. Most of the time they use Penicillin or Amoxicillin.Best Wishes. Absesses suck!
Warm water and salt!
Clindamycin is a good antibiotic for an oral abscess. Also amoxil is an alternative. Always try to have good oral hygiene, and see your dentist twice a year.
Penicillin is the best antibiotic for an abscess. Warm salt water is good to treat irritated gums, but you need an antibiotic to clear up an infection.
The primary antibiotic for a dental abscess is something from the penicillin family- specifically Amoxil. It covers most of the bacteria associated with the abscess. You should have that tooth fixed because the antibiotics are only a temporary fix.
