In brief: Find cause of pain.

Tooth pain is not always treated with antibiotics.
Do not take them if the reason for taking them is not clear. You are correct in taking your kidney function into consideration before taking antibiotics. See your dentist for a diagnosis.

In brief: Depends...

Due to the serious nature of nephrotic syndrome, it would be best to proceed with a non antibiotic solution to your tooth pain, such as extraction and subsequent bridge or implant.
Treatment by your dentist should be coordinated and approved by the md who is handling the nephrotic syndrome.
