Do I need antibiotics for a tooth infection, dental implant, bone graft or other dental work and is it required for my Dentist to prescribe them?
Use of antibiotics should be judicious and carefully thought out. Just because you have an “infection” in your tooth, it does not mean you need an antibiotic. Also, not all “infections” are actually infections. Not all infections can be cured by antibiotics alone. For more information, read here.
