See your dentist asap before it gets worse. ...Read more

But then it will still be there, but not hurting as much! ...Read more

Tooth HS gotten extracted cuz of dental abscess bt drainage is NT possible. It's been a day, on IV injections, how long swelling and pain will remain?
Tooth extraction: Is a surgical procedure and is not completely risk-free. Pain and swelling following surgery is usually at its worst 24 – 48 hours after surgery.

How long does a tooth abscess last? I have a hole in tooth so it's draining, and I take 500mg of amoxicillin twice a day. Just started taking the antibiotics last night. When should the swelling in my gums/face go down?
Maybe never, but...: Tooth abscesses originate from dead/diseased tissue within the bad tooth, which leads to an infection in the surrounding supporting bone (abscess). Antibiotics may temporarily reduce the abscess (usually takes no less than 48 hrs, but maybe longer), but never truly address the cause. For this you need a root canal or extraction. Some infections will not respond to antibiotics at all. ...Read more
I was diagnosed with a double tooth abscess about one month ago. Swelling went down and pain went away after antibiotics. Now I have got pain in face, eye, neck and severe pain in jaw. What should I do?
See your dentist to drain the dental abscess. If not treated, a serious dental abscess can eventually kill. The infection may spread to your jaw, cheeks, sinus and to other areas of your head and neck. The antibiotics (Penicillin is the most common) will give you only a temporary relief. See any dentist for examination, x-rays and treatment.
