I wouldn't take it as a matter of fact, see your dentist & decide. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
See a dentist: You must treat the source of the infection, not only the symptoms. Therefore, you need to clean out the inside of the tooth to remove the bacteria which is the source of the infection.

I had a tooth abscess and i was on 7 days of amoxicillin.I saw a dds today as i still have the bump. He gave no prescription for a refill and said that no exam is needed. Iwill see him on 2/13 at the next cleaning. What should I do?
Tooth abscess: If you are self medicating, probably never (without also treating the cause of the infection). If it was prescribed by a dentist, you need to discuss what to expect from the prescribing dentist. Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) would not be my first choice of antibiotics for dental infections. If the swelling does not diminish within 2-3 days, you need to let your dentist know that immediately.If it worsens, even sooner. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
