  • You shouldnt take both anti-biotic at the same time. Take 1 at night and 1 on the morning. That should help over time. But immediate relif would be orajel in the mean time while the pain pills kick in. And youll need somthing stronger than tylenol. Like vicodin or codein. A warm compress on the outside of your mouth may help if it is absessed. The anti-biotic will help with the absess but you will need to get it taken care of or else it will just keep reoccurring. Look into your towns medical programs at schools. They have free clinics where they do fillings , X Rays, and cleaning/polishes. You have to be a little more patient but it gets taiken care of. Or also look into a dental care card. I used one when I had 2 get a tooth pulled. The dentist can give you options. It will be cheaper to pull it than to fix it though.... GL I hate having a tooth ache. ):

  • Antibiotics are not going to help with the pain. Get some whole cloves and put one on you tooth and it will relieve the pain. Try clove oil, too. And try calling around to find a dentist who offers payment plans. It's not going to stop hurting for good without getting fixed. Sorry!

  • I know whiskey will help, too. Swish it around like mouthwash and either spit it out or swallow it!

  • Can you afford to go to the store and get some Ora-Jel? That helps a lot and the dollar store does sell it. Clove oil works really well too
