I have had a couple abscessed teeth . I don't have the cash to have it pulled right now. The abscess has moved up into my cheek and swollen up a little bit. I have a full script for a antibiotic called Flagyl 500 mg. will this antibiotic work ? I also have amoxicillin 500 mg. but only a few days worth.

  • The medication for the abcessed tooth should not be taken without prescription. Even if the meds are taken it will just give you temporary relief for sometime depending on severity of infection. The treatment is needed and for that you have to go to dentist and if you are short cash then you can try dental school near your home where the treatment is subsidised and even sometime it is free.
