Maybe: The removal of an infected tooth usually has discomfort.

Can't advise: Can't advise you to medicate yourself. The tooth needs to be treated by a dentist anyway, and the antibiotics won't fix the problem, just mask the symptoms.

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.

Concur: I concur w the other drs. That have answered this question that penicillin is the antibiotic of choice to control dental infection. Notice i said control, not cure. To cure the infection you must physically remove the infected tooth material (root canal or extraction).

Perio or endo: If the abscess is draining, usually you will have slightly raised gum and very little pain. However, if the abscess is not draining or if the fistula (draining tube) is obstructed, you will have swollen gum and more pain. If your tooth abscess is near the gum, your dentist will also check out your gum condition in addition to your tooth because it can be cracked tooth and/or gum disease. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
