Have you considered going to a dental school?  It may be a good place to try since there will be plenty of dentists and oral specialists who may be able to help you.  Meanwhile, you should get another prescription of a different antibiotic if there's swelling.

I'm not sure if I understand your question.

If you're asking if a swollen face and numbness can be caused by a cavity/decay underneath a crown, then yes, it can.  The bacteria can travel underneath the crown, down the root canal of the tooth to the jaw bone and spread from there to the cheek, parts of the face, down the neck, etc.  I would advise seeing a dentist immediately before the swelling continues to get worse.
