Tooth Abscess

Hi there,
I have just finished a 7 day course of 500mg Amoxycillin for a tooth abscess.Because I couldn't get to a dentist an emergency Dr prescribed them for me at home.My tooth is broken badly and I have no filling in my upper gum. I am agoraphobic and house bound in the UK.I now have a lump between bad tooth and gum which wont seem to budge! I am in no pain and all my swelling has gone down.What I would like to ask is if this could still be the abscess and the antibiotics are still working or could this be a gum boil? How long does antiobiotics take to leave my system when finishing them.

Thank you very much for your help
