What should be the time interval between two courses of antibiotics?

I have an infected tooth. I had antibiotics about a month ago for bronchitis. I was told at the urgent care, that I can t have antibiotics again this soon, even though it s a different infection. They gave me peroxyl to gargle with 4x/day. I m having trouble getting in to see a dentist and I m concerned because the infection is not improving. Would you agree that I cannot have antibiotics again this soon?

Thanks for asking HCM
Are you having fever also. if yes than you should take suitable antibiotic after you see a doctor. If not then take pain killer and antinflamatory . I think you should be alright.
