Ciprofloxacin is given to treat a bacterial infection if it's prescribed by a dentist then its ok to take it. if the infection is abscess dentist will clean and drain the area and prescribe an antibiotic for bacterial infections. after removing the infection area antibiotic will prescribe by the dentist if necessary.before you take ciprofloxacinsome medicines are not suitable for people with certain conditions,1-Pregnancy, breastfeeding child.2-not recommended for Patients under 18 y.3-patients with kidney dysfunction.4-Hearth problem or unusual heart you had an allergic reaction to a medicine it’s important to tell your doctor.before you take Ciprofloxacin if there is any genetic disorder or sickness history must be consulted with your doctor. Species resistant to amoxicillin, the alternatives of amoxicillin/clavulanate, clindamycin, and metronidazole need to be considered. Rastenienė et al analyzed treatment modalities and results in 1,077 patients with severe odontogenic maxillofacial infections during a 10-year period. The microbial analysis showed the highest susceptibility of predominant micro-organisms to penicillin was 76.9% and the highest resistance was to metronidazole (27.9%). This is a topical medication in which the silver acts as an antimicrobial and the fluoride promotes the remineralization of the tooth. Recommended maximum dose is one drop/25 μL per 10 kg per weekly treatment. Drug combination that extends the antibiotic spectrum of this penicillin to include bacteria normally resistant to beta-lactam antibiotics. Indicated for skin and skin structure infections caused by beta-lactamase–producing strains of Inhibits bacterial protein synthesis by inhibiting peptide chain initiation at the bacterial ribosome, where it preferentially binds to the 50S ribosomal subunit, causing bacterial growth inhibition.
Hello Ervnel If ciprofloxacin was prescribed for this reason then yes it would be OK to take it. The infection is likely do be an abscess which the dentist will drain and then prescribe an antibiotics to clear any remaining infection if it is necessary. It you lightly tap the tooth in question and it hurts this can be indicative of an abscess. Taking an antibiotic alone will not treat the problem. First one must remove the infection and then take antibiotics if the dentist thinks that they are necessary. If a tooth has a hole, it needs at least a filling, but possibly more. Mark Not true you never drain the abscess first , you always treat it with antibiotics first and foremost. Take care To Tara1989, Dentistry is a visual and hands on type of practice. Since there is only sensation when you eat, it is probably a cavity which can worsen over time. Those of you telling people it gets drained first are mis informing the public. If you are a Dentist then you need to go back to school and learn the proper way to handle infected teeth. Hawkman IS CORRECT I have had every tooth pulled due to decay except 12 in the past 4 years. (IV) or V (PO) Spectrum: Many strains of Streptococci (Drug of choice for Group A Strep - universally PCN sensitive), minority of Staphylococci (most are resistant) and some Enterococcus, most oral anaerobes, Syphilis (universally PCN sensitive). Used for: Strep throat and other infections due to Group A Strep, Syphilis (for neurosyphilis or pregnant women, must desensitize to PCN), bacteremia/endocarditis due to PCN sensitive Streptococcus, Enterococcus, or Staph aureus ( (PO) Spectrum: some Gram positives (Strep, Enterococcus, Listeria) but NOT MSSA, and limited Gram negative coverage. Notable gram negative holes include Klebsiella, Moraxella, and SPICE A organisms. Used for: Upper respiratory infections, sinusitis, otitis media, cellulitis, Listeria infections, UTI’s, early Lyme disease (alternative to Doxycycline), and more. Used for: Drug of choice for MSSA infections (unless PCN sensitive, which is rare). Good choice for cellulitis, osteomyelitis, endocarditis, and bacteremia from MSSA. Usually combined with beta lactamase inhibitors (see below) which confers broader activity; however, beta-lactamase component does not add activity vs Pseudomonas (so if Pseudomonas is sensitive, could use Piperacillin alone). addition of beta lactamase inhibitor confers broader spectrum against common beta-lactamase producing organisms (such as MSSA, some gram negatives including H.influenza, Moraxella, and virtually all anaerobes).
If ciprofloxacin was prescribed for this reason then yes it would be OK to take it. If not then you need to see a dentist. The infection is likely do be. Things Cipro's Warning Label WON'T Tell You 1. As everyone knows, all drugs have potential side effects.
