My mother kept sending me pet antibiotics, and I kept taking them, hoping to quell the infection. Note: I took antibiotics for probably a year straight,

I have a recommendation for you.
Buy coconut oil or a nut oil, and ONLY one that says" virgin, cold pressed, unrefined and organic. It will be worth it.
Pleas wake up and before you consume anything, put the oil in your mouth for 15 minutes, gurgling it with your throat. Oil pulling will do great things for you.

I learned back in the Navy that when you get a gum or tooth infection, to put vodka in your mouth, swish it around and spit it out twice a day. Burns really bad where the infection is, but you know its working. You can head off a lot of dental torture by doing this.

Teeth can cause all sorts of problems. A friend's boyfriend died from not getting a cavity filled - it became infected and went into his brain. Granted, he was not so much a junkie as he was a regular heroin user, so it's surmised he didn't actually feel that his tooth was infected because his pain receptors were screwed up.
I've been fortunate in my health care to find providers who don't mess around. In the case of my rear molar, when an old filling was ready for replacement, my dentist said, "I can remove the filling and give you a root canal. It may or may not take. If it takes, it still might go bad in a few years, if it doesn't take we have to re do it. Either way you're back in a few years to have it pulled. It's a molar, no one will see, the rest of your teeth are healthy, let's just pull it."
