Can doxycycline be used to treat an abcess infection in the mouth?

Answers (1)

6 Apr 2013

Yes, doxycycline can be used for a mouth/dental abscess... however, depending on where the abscess is in the mouth/at the root of a tooth, etc... there may be other more effective antibiotics. If the dentist has prescribed this for you for this infection then it should be fine.
