Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

These are signs of bacterial infection from wisdom tooth.

You will need to be on oral antibiotic like amoxicilin.

Please contact your doctor or go to the walk in clinic today.
