When should I consider antibiotics?

The mouth is full of bacteria, which remains harmless while it is inside the mouth. But complications can occur if this bacteria enters the bloodstream through the gums. If you have a heart murmur, heart valve replacement or artificial joint (such as knee or hip replacements) Advanced Dental Centre will prescribe a course of antibiotics before a major dental procedure. This will prevent bacteria from lodging in the problem area.
