Is this the place to ask for quick medical information? Well, not so quick would be fine too, as this is not really a burning question, but some information would be welcome. What is the way to treat oral infection in endocarditis? Are antibiotics needed for the treatment of oral infection in endocarditis and if so, do you know which ones?

Absolutely - endocarditis is no joke, and the oral infections can be a sign of bigger problems, when they show up. IV antibiotic treatment is administered immediately upon diagnosis, in order to get the infection under control as soon as possible, and reduce the chance of long term consequences. After this, blood tests are done to check whether the treatment caught on, but surgery may also be needed in some cases.
