I need a tooth in the back extracted, but I don’t have the money. It’s getting pretty bad and I can’t deal with it. The pain is now spreading up the side of my face and is to my eyebrow. I have some old antibiotics that I didn’t end up needing. Can I take that, until I have the money for the extraction?

This is one of those dental situation where you can’t afford not to do it. You can actually die from a tooth abscess. This is spreading. What will you do if it gets to your brain? This tooth needs to be extracted and the antibiotic will not take care of your infection.
If you’ve already got a dentist, call him and explain the situation. He’ll more than likely be able to work out some way to make it affordable.
This is something you really cannot put off.
