Thanks for your response!!
The reason i mentioned ASAP or ER - As there could be many reasons for swelling such as carious tooth ( swelling indicates that the infection might have reached the pulp
tissue of the tooth ).Without proper oral examination and radiographic evidence, it would be hard to diagnose the exact reason for swelling. Antibiotics could suppress the symptoms,however to a certain extent. After a certain point, even the antibiotics would be ineffective. Unnecessary popping of antibiotics is never recommended.For example - If the swelling is due to tooth abscess
, an appropriate treatment has to be taken care in ER room or at the dental office. Antibiotics is only given as adjunct to control the infection.
However, if going to a dentist or ER is not an option at this time, the best i could advise to continue with the antibiotic and painkiller.Along with that, you could go in for warm saline rinses few times in a day. You could keep an ice pack on the outside of the cheek.However, if the conditions worsens viz swelling would not subside or the pain increases, even after following the above instructions,you need to go to ER.
Any Further Questions, Revert and i would be glad to Answer.
