If you are having severe anxiety, it is well worthwhile to meet with your dentist to review your dental health. While untreated infection can affect many different parts of the body, this is not usually a problem with healthy American adults with access to healthcare.

Why are you taking antibiotics? Have you been diagnosed with an infection? If you have a dental infection, antibiotics will not resolve your issues. Why not get examined by a local dentist to determine the cause of your pain.
