Question: Will antibiotics help treat my dental pain?
Reply: If you have a fever, an infection may have spread beyond its original source and an antibiotic can help. If you have an infection that hasn’t spread, it might be treatable at the original source. For example: A contained toothache probably won’t require antibiotics, but you might need dental treatment, such as a root canal, depending on the severity of the infection. However, antibiotic is not pain meds and will not necessarily help with pain
