You can't: Prescribing medication without an examination is not only unethical, but also dangerous. Antibiotics will not cure dental infections (an clindamycin is often not 1st choice), just slow down spread of infection until you stop taking them. You will have to bite the bullet and see a Dentist. Dental infections can be quite dangerous and spread easily to other organ systems.
