Hi I have large extremely painful abscess causing severe pain and swelling in gum, jawbone and neck. This is from a tooth diagnosed with internal root asorption. I've been taking anitbiotics for 5 days with no relief. I'm scheduled to see new specialist in 5 days, the first available appointment so I'm officially under nobody's care. Is this a dangerous situation and do I need to do something ASAP instead of waiting for my appointment? I'm concerned about infection spreading to my heart and brain. Thanks!
I recently had to go through one round of Amoxicillin and then another of Clyndamycin before my infection was under control ... and I still think I have some infection because one of the other teeth I had crowned is heat sensitive, indicating the presence of bacteria in the root. :-(
Ive had a tooth ache for 2 weeks and i've been on penicillin the whole time and for another week it turned into an abscesd tooth and it hurts so bad what else can I take besides Motrin n ice on it can't get in til next Monday now
