Brief Answer:
Te best is amoxicillin and metronidazole!

Detailed Answer:

SMz-TMP is not a good drug for tooth ache. we generally prefer amoxicilin and metronidazole. I will recommend that you rather talk to your dentist and get the necessary antibiotics for this.

In the interim, you could add tylenol 1000mg every 6-8hours for pain relief pending a dentist appointment.

I hope this helps. I wish you well. Feel free to follow up with me if need be.

I have constant pressure inside of my inner ear, caused from what I believe is a fluid build up. If it starts to drain I get a nasty sickly sweet taste in my mouth. However, it never fully drains, not even close. I have gone through a cycle of amoxicillin and a z-pack and the symptoms have not gone away. It has been 3 months now since it began. Also, all four of my wisdom teeth have broken the surface. This happened years ago, but none of them have fully come in. I have a feeling that they are impacted to some degree, but they cause me no pain at all. Could my recurring ear problem be related to my wisdom teeth? Both the teeth and ear have no pain. Also, the gland right behind the earlobe on the affected ear is swollen and fairly hard during the peak of the ear congestion.
