Call dentist: You should be feeling better after being in an antibiotic for this long. Some of your symptoms may be side effects of the antibiotic, but it is impossible to know what is going on without an examination. Call the dentist asap.

It is not normal: Sometimes the tooth infection can spread quickly and require immediate attention. If your dentist is unavailable and there is a fever, swelling in the face, or swelling in the jaw, a visit to the emergency room or urgent care is warranted. A tooth infection won't resolve without treatment.
