In brief: Meds

Antibiotics will NOT cure infected tooth, only slow spread and severity of infection. Probably need extraction or root canal treatment. You need to see your Dentist before meds run out.

In brief: See Dentist

Right away! Antibiotics cannot cure a dental infection.
If you don't go to the dentist it will only get worse.
