hi. i have been a dental assistant for 8 years, and i have never heard of this. i have seen infection stick around after teeth have been pulled and it may be as simple as taking another round of the augmentin. but infection is one thing you dont play around with, especially since its effecting the glands in your neck. i would go to my general doctor since the OS hasnt helped. it may actually be the lymph node in the neck thats infected. you never know and it cant hurt to ask. good luck!
I totally agree! I don't feel this is in any way related to your teeth, and definitely has nothing to do with TMJ! Your oral surgeon is doing you wrong by just throwing something out there to shut you up! See your doctor and go from there.
