    At the moment I don't have medical insurance. in the past when i did, i went to a dentist after having these same incredibly painful pains in my gums, they gave me a prescription for penicillin and then later had a root canal. whats an alternative to a kind of medicine that does the same job to my gum infection that i can get sooner to cure this pain, so i don't have to pay a ton at the dentist????? whats a alternative medicine that i could take? on this site, i read about penicillin v 250mg.

    Hi, Instead of Penicillin 250mg you can go ahead and take the antibiotic, which gives support to your gums. Regarding to strengthen your gums we have a new product and we are currently working on updating in our site and we will mail you once we have done that.
