12-24 hours: ...But an antibiotic may not work at all. If the infection is inside of a tooth, for example, the offending tooth will require treatment.

Emergency: See a dentist immediately. Additional drainage, extraction/treatment of the offending tooth and/or a change in antibiotics may be called-for.
