Welcome .I will do my best to answer your question.I am not a great typist,be patient and feel free to ask if anything is unclear.It will take at least 48 hours to begin to see the effects of the antibiotic.Which one are you taking and what doseage are you on?Has this tooth been opened to drain or do you have plans to have it extracted?
