The mouth is full of bacteria from foods, saliva, and plaque. Sometimes, these bacteria can enter into a tooth or below the gumline, resulting in a tooth infection or abscess.
In addition to producing pain and discomfort, dental infections can result in life-threatening complications if untreated in a timely manner.
To reduce the risk of complications, we can provide immediate relief and treatment for uncomplicated dental and oral infections.
Complicated dental infections and abscess may require a dental procedure to eradicate
Warning : Complicated dental infections and abscesses may require an in-person doctor visit
We prescribe oral and topical antibiotics to halt the spread of dental infections.
Amoxicillin, Augmentin, Clindamycin, and Antibiotic paste/liquid, and more
Medication such as inhaled steroids, antibiotics that disturb the natural microorganism balance in the body
Denture can cause dry mouth which can in turn result in oral thrush
Uncontrolled diabetes encourages the growth of yeast (candida)
Weakened immunity from certain conditions and treatment such as cancer, chemotherapy, HIV/AIDs
Treatment: Treatment with an antifungal improves symptoms and reduces the risk of developing esophagitis.
What we prescribe: Fluconazole, Nystatin, Clotrimazole, Miconazole
Oral herpes is primarily caused by HSV-1 (Herpes Simplex Virus). It is transmitted when you come in contact with an infected saliva from kissing, sharing utensils or oral intercourse.
The virus causes the characteristic painful sores or blisters on the lips, mouth, gum and other parts of the mouth. Symptoms show up after 2-12 days of exposure.
What we prescribe:
To reduce the frequency, severity and duration of outbreaks, we prescribe antivirals such as Acyclovir and Valacyclovir (Pill and Ointment available)
