Brief Answer:
you cannot take both amoxicillin and keflex

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your query. I have gone through your query.
As far as the amoxicillin and keflex is concerned, both are antibiotics. If I am your treating doctor, following tooth removal I would have advised you to take amoxicillin 500mg thrice daily for 3days along with a pain killer like diclofenac(if you are not allergic). You cannot mix amoxicillin and keflex.
I hope I have answered your query. If you have any queries reply me back. take care
