Its important to get a recommendation from your dentist because in many cases antibiotics are only one step in resolving a gum infection. Amoxicillin may be used but is not the drug of choice for treating gingivitis.
Standard doses are used.
4 months to 12 years: 20 to 50 mg/kg/day in divided doses every 8 to 12 hours
