Thanks for writing in to Healthcare Magic!
Why do not you want to take these antibiotics?
They are good antibiotics for XXXXXX infections of teeth say the roots.
If you want to avoid all antibiotics then it is difficult to treat XXXXXX infections but if you are ready to take a different class anti biotic then you can take Augmentin or Linezolid in their place.
If you have superficial infection like gingivitis et cetera then you can try improving the oral hygiene by doing a rigorous twice a day brushing and chlorhexidine mouth gargles thrice a day and do not take any thing for following two hours.
Follow the regimen for one full month strictly.
If you have any further query please let me know I would try to answer it for you.
Wish you a great health!
