I have a chronic tooth infection due to a broken tooth root that has had a root canal done on it. I have been taking Cipro for a bladder infection. I am getting ready to go thru the process of a dental implant. It will be a week or so before I start the procedure. I still have a slight infection in that tooth area. Will the Cipro keep the infection at bay until I can have the procedure done. I was on Clindamycin for a week and the infection was kept at bay with that. I am hoping that the Cipro will keep the tooth infection at bay as well. I would rather not be taking two antibiotics at the same time if possible.
