Brief Answer: Cefdinir works better for teeth infecti.than nitro Detailed Answer: Hi, If your mother is having tooth infection, cefdinir will work better than nitro. Continue using it for up to 7 days. I suggest to keep a good oral hygiene together with adding metronidazole (Flagyl) as additional therapy for better effect. Wish fast recovery! Dr.Bardha
