Common Questions and Answers about Cefdinir tooth infection

After amoxicillin and endo retreating tooth, it felt better and fever gone, but 2 days after ending antibiotics, infection returned with intensity, spread along jawline into nearby <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span>, causing that <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> to then also need a root canal. I was put back on the same dose of amoxicillin, then tried clindamycin for a few days, but infection continued to spread - a large red hot lump (tablespoon sized) formed on my jawline, just under the 2 affected teeth.
I was placed on Claritin as an antihistamine and given <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cefdinir</span> for infection. They also recommended a sinus flush using a neti pot. I've followed their instructions and now this morning I awaken to a swollen, almost bubble area where my upper wisdom tooth used to be. It is extremely sensitive tot he touch and if touched caused a piercing pain to shoot throughout my jaw. Is this a sign that the infection has traveled through the cavity where my wisdom tooth was?
(Never should have let him do it--the gap returned 6 mos. later!) In January of 2014 I needed a root canal on the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span>; it was infected. Now, two months later, I'm finishing my 3rd antibiotic and I think the sinus infection I got following the RC is finally clearing up. Before the RC, my dentist told me he could just put a filling in after the RC, but the endo recommended a crown. I got a second opinion from another dentist who also recommends a crown.
Anyway, it still might be allergies or an infection, but I want people to know that this is another possiblity that medical doctors will overlook often. Like I said, I'm not 100% sold on the idea, but I'm convienced enough to keep going to the PT and chiro.
I went to the doc and have been taking Septra for a possible sinus infection, but no improvement. I don't know what's linking the sinus condition with the other symptoms... virus (like chronic fatigue), allergies, infection, autoimmune disorder (hope not)? Any advice or comments welcome.
