I started with absess tooth and my dentist was booked up for month so I went to a walkin clinic to get started on antibiotic which was augmentin 875 mg and swellung pain stop for now when I finally get into my dentist they cant do anything they said it was still infected and put me on penvk 500 for ten days and reshedule me for 3 weeks later well after 10 days out of penvk 500 and 4 days later its started swelling again and I called and they gave me another round of penvk For 10 more days and it is not working my tooth is killing mei can feel it in my jaw bone is the infection now resilient to penvk
Then call again and report this so you can get the help you need.
Sometimes you have to be insistent. You tell them its not helping, you're in pain and you want to see the dentist now. They have slots open for emergencies, don't let them tell you they don't. If he won't see you, find another dentist.
You call them back tell them its swelling and that the penvk not working , and you need to see him, keep calling till they let you in, I was done the same way, the infection went to my sinus, I had a bad time the pain was terrible.
