In brief: Antibiotics

Antibiotics don't cure dental infections.
They limit spread of infection and/or reduce severity. To "cure" a dental infection the diseased tooth material must be eliminated (root canal or extraction). Call your Dentist.

In brief: Dental infection

Tooth abscess will not resolve on its own with home care.
The most common type of dental abscess is a tooth, and the second most common is a gum or combination of both tooth-gum abscess. In order to get appropriate treatment it is important to know the underlying cause for this infection. Rec.: see your dentist for evaluation, x-rays and treatment. Predictable treatment and outcome.
