cephalexin and clindamyacin
I'm taking both of these for a severe dental infection that is into the bone! Taking two different CLASSES of antibiotics is sometimes used for various reasons. There are different types of BACTERIA (or sometimes fungus, antifungals, are used and that can be confusing to some people). You can also take up to 3 kinds of antibiotics and in rare cases 4. Again, this is to cover the different TYPES of bacteria. I'm NOT a doctor, only a nurse. Obviously, you must seek medical advice from a physician or dentist. What I have learned, is that root canals can be our rather, seem to be: the KEY to keeping the field of DENTISTRY very PROSPEROUS!!!!!!!!!! I wish is have known 3 years ago what I know now, ams that is that I never Should have had a root c a nal on the tooth that is now abscessed! The infection NEVER left!!!!!!!! It would've been root canal after root canal after root canal, over and over (the 3 times wouldn't have been enough) they would've kept plugging away at it and spent THOUSANDS, before they'd have their way!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I very strongly believe in NATURAL healing. I'll be consulting tomorrow, with the friend of a friend, a natural healer, who will attempt to reverse this infection via precious metals. Or, accuscope. This will be in an effort to preserve my teeth. Praise God, I truly hope this works. Once the infection had called down, I'll have the tooth with the Abscess removed. If we can't salvage my other teeth that the dentist is claiming needs root canals, then I'll have to get them extracted too and get false teeth. This thought depresses me SEVERELY, but if this is what had to happen due to not having been blessed with GOOD TEETH, then so be it! I'm not going to live a sickly life, constantly battling infection after infection. I don't understand how these dentists can justify this ??? It's like an I&D for an infected wound (these root canals). The catch is, that they charge you HUNDREDS into thousands of dollars for the work&a crown to boot!!!!!!!!!!! How is this ETHICAL??! At least INFORM people of weekday is really going on and that they might need multiple root canals which in the end could still end up being ineffective! Allow your patient to make an INFORMED decision about their care. It's not right to jeapordize the HEALTH of others for your OWN POCKET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Clindamycin or Co-amoxiclav?
