Choosing antibiotics for tartar removal or tooth extraction

Please teach me about the use of antibiotics for tartar removal. Firstly, are antibiotics effective when given a week before surgery? Seminars tell us to use clindamycin before surgery, but I wonder if they are really effective. I usually go with what is said and give clindamycin a week before tartar removal or tooth extraction. Secondly, how should we choose antibiotics during and after an operation? Recently I've lost a miniature dachshund patient to bacteremia after performing tartar removal and tooth extraction the day before. In this case, I hadn't used antibiotics prior to operation and used ABPC at 20mg/kg BID for during and after the operation.
