Brief Answer: metronidazole gives good result Detailed Answer: Hi there ; The list of medicines you have mentioned are all antibiotics. You need to have analgesics and antiinflammatory medicines along with antibiotics to give you relief. Metronidazole acts good on gram negative bacteria and can be taken to for dental infections. Along with this you can take antiinflammatory drugs like diclofenac / ibuprofen. Serratiopeptidase may be also taken for additional benefits. Hope this helps. Take care.
