Antibiotics have not made the infection go away as the root tip is still in pain. Can they pull the tooth, which is what is scheduled, even if still some infection there ?

  • If you are already taking antibiotics then you can get even infected tooth pulled out in antibiotic coverage. The dentist will decide after extraction, whether to continue the antibiotics or not. Extracting an infected tooth under antibiotic coverage is not contra indicated if proper history is taken and there is no systomic problem. So your dentist is the best judge for that. If he goes ahead there is nothing to worry. for more info on abscessed tooth, you can check this link in our website.... http://www.identalhub.com/articlecategory-abscessed-tooth-55.aspx
