When it comes to infected teeth, antibiotics only reduce the load of infection. For example, if you had a big lump beside the tooth or swelling in the face that has been caused by infected tooth, antibiotics can be used to reduce the size of the lump or swelling. However, the infection will still be present after antibiotics use and that is why it tends to recur. Infection will only be eliminated once the infected tooth or nerve has been removed.
