He has an appointment scheduled March 1st for the dentist and on Monday is going to call to try to be seen sooner. In the meantime though I feel bad he is suffering. I have two antibiotics here that were never used. I wonder if either would work for a tooth infection ? His filling has broken away in places. His gum is swollen and red. He's just in a lot of pain and trying to suffer through with ibuprofen. Any advice?
Hello, I am sure your problem is solved now based on the fact that you asked 3 months ago but either of those medications would work. Azithromycin would be the better choice as toothache is actually one of its indications. Tooth pain is the absolute worst!!! Good luck!
