Yes, it possibly may be an option. Your dentist is the best person to choose the most effective antibiotic for you.

Azithromycin is given to people allergic to penicillins and those who have abscesses and other dental infections, especially those extending into the sinuses, gums and bone, and for whom other antibiotics have proved ineffective.
