Also the folks who invented antibiotics are genius; I feel tons better. It's interesting because I always fear that a doctor will just tell me, "There is nothing to make this better, it will go away on its own, just be patient and stop being a wimp." Not in so many words, but approximately.
So it's exciting to find this dental issue so rapidly improved with the application of some pills and mouthwash! It really is stunning how well an antibiotic works in the appropriate situation.
