Hi Jamie, I currently have an abcess and that is exactly what I'm taking, so yes it does. Good Luck, I hope your tooth gets better that can be a very dangerous situation. The infection can travel to your brain so please see a dentist as soon as possible. -K P.S. It will take a few days of taking the antibiotics for your pain to subside but it will don't worry. Try advil in the mean time.
I too have an abscess tooth as we speak. My mouth, cheek, side of my nose into my are are somewhat swollen and the pain is emence. I started taking amoxicillin yesterday. I have taken it before for the same reason. And I have to say that yes it does work. It does take a couple days to help with the pain. But once it does you will feel so much relief. Also you will feel like once the pain is subsided you may want to stop taking it. But do not you must take it for the entire prescribed days. Otherwise the infection will come right back. I have an abscess atleast every 3-6 months. I am unfortunately very familiar with them. You can also take Motrin for the pain as well. Hope this is helpful and good luck. God bless
