Can you see a regular doctor for tooth infection?

I have a tooth infection/absess and I can’t afford to see a dentist for a bit.

Can I go to my regular family dr to get medication for it?

  6. It depends on the doctor. I’ve had it where doctor will prescribe an antibiotic with no problem and others who’ve refused to touch it and sent me to a dentist. Try a medi-center and explain your situation to the doctor, you might get lucky.

    Ok I just went thru same situation where tooth was infected bad pain and every dentist I talked to wanted credit card and and dental coverage and huge amount for treatment. I highly recommend cornerstone dental in Fort saskatchewan it’s a little drive but super friendly and very curtious and got me fixed super cheap and was excellent

    Usually just give you a round of antibiotics and maybe something if you are in pain, refer over to your dentist essentially.

    Get your ass to a doctor or even hospital. You can get really freaking sick if you dont take care of it asap. A dentist can’t do anything until the infection is dealt with!

  14. A dentist is not likely able to do any work on your teeth until the infection is gone. Yes go to doc and get on antibiotics.
