Abstract

This script gives a pragmatic advice for general dentists on accurate use of amoxicillin with clavulanic acid considering current literature at acute inflammatory disease. In absence of contraindications a twice daily formulation of 1g amoxicillin with clavulanic acid is the first choice for concomitant therapy after treating the cause of inflammation or prophylaxis. Compared to clindamycin the concentration of amoxicillin in teeth and bone (Hallig 2014) is higher and has less gastrointestinal side-effects (Bax 2007). Furthermore it is prescribable during pregnancy and lactation. With these advantages amoxicillin with clavulanic acid is the first choice of antibiotics in general dental medicine.
