See you dentist. Hi Billy! Your denture should start feeling better after a week or so. It's not uncommon for a denture to be adjusted multiple times after you have had your teeth out. The bone and gum tissue will eventually heal and shrink. At this point you will need to relign the denture so it fits your mouth properly. Usually a few months after receiving the denture.

The pediatrician or dentist will determine if antibiotics are appropriate and prescribe the proper antibiotic dose to treat the problems. Read more...

I do not know how much your son weighs, so i cannot comment on whether the Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) is safe or not.
