Antibiotics: do loose their potency after the date of expiration and there is no reason why your DDS won't prescribe "fresh" supply of appropriate antibiotic if he/she feels it's appropriate! Give the office a call!!!!! Hope this helps! Good Luck! Dr Z

See an Oral Surgon: They are experts in dealing with wisdom teeth, regardless of their position. You don't know if you are even infected, and the old antibiotics have lost their potency anyway. Please call for an appointment to be evaluated.
