Dental Abscesses

Dental infections are caused by bacteria getting into the tooth and gum. These abscesses form two sorts:


This type of infection is when bacteria get inside the tooth through small holes. The bacteria cause the pulp in the centre of the tooth to die and the cavity left gets infected. The infection will eventually make its way to the bone that supports the tooth and an abscess filled with pus will form around that bone.

Periodontal Abscess

This type of infection is much rarer than the periapical abscess. These types of abscesses form when the gums get infected by the bacteria in plaque. The gums will become inflamed and a void can appear between the tooth and the gum that is very difficult to clean. An abscess will then form. The inflamed gums are known as periodontitis.

Treatment for Dental Infections

Although The Online Clinic is happy to provide emergency treatment for dental infections and abscesses, it is essential that you make an appointment with your dentist so that the actual cause of the problem can be identified and resolved. It is not wise to continue treating the symptoms with antibiotics on a long term basis, as this can make the situation worse by failing to treat the cause.

Antibiotic Treatments

We are happy to prescribe Metronidazole, Amoxicillin or Erythromycin to deal with dental abscesses. All treatments are prescribed by us and dispensed by our pharmacy for next day delivery. If you order before 4.00 pm Monday to Friday then your order will arrive the next day before 1.00 pm. Many people find this service invaluable until they can get an appointment with their dentist.
