Will antibiotics help me?
It depends on the cause of the pain you are having. Usually, it is only advisable to take antibiotics for a spreading infection.

At Eyes & Smiles Emergency Dentist New Southgate Clinic limiting antibiotic use is a crucial objective in our population to slow the rate of resistance of bacteria to antibiotics. At Eyes & Smiles Dental Emergency North London Clinic N11 your dentist will diagnose the infection via clinical testing and the digital x-ray facilities available to establish what the best treatment will be for you.
