  • If you had swelling in the vicnity f the tooth which has cavity that means the tooth is infected . You should go to the the emergency room and get started with the medicaton. May be they will write some antibiotics.This swelling will not go away itsself. Later on you have to go to the dentist. If you want to save the tooth then you have to go for the root canal treatment otherwise you have to get it  pulled out. In both the cases you have to see a dentist.
