this was somewhat helpful. it is ok to take the augmentin, but i dont understand the part about, " antibiotics will control the infection but not cure the infection." i know either the tooth needs a filling or cut out... if that is what you meant by not curing the infection. i just need the antibiotic to minimize the pain and swelling and then treat with the toothache gum as a temp filling until i can get into an oral surgeon to get it taken out. thanks for your time
