Cephalexain is a drug that my dentist has used several times but sometimes depending upon the type of bacteria causing the infection it is necessary to give a different course of antibiotics in order to eradicate the infection thus allowing the dentist to repair or do the necessary treatment once the tooth are is free from infection I think that's why it's a good idea for you to give his office a call let them know what is going on and it may be best if he see's you prior to prescribing an antibiotic just so that you are on the specific course of treatment in order to best treat your problem. I wish you the very best, please take good care
