Your dentist will know which type is right for you. I had an abscessed tooth too. I had to be on antibiotics for 4 weeks to get rid of the infection. Then I had to have a root canal done. It did not hurt at all and I am afraid of the dentist. Amoxicillin, Biaxin or clindamycin are often used in treating dental infections.
