  • Cause of facial swelling is decayed tooth which is infected. You have to visit a dentist and find out the exact cause of swelling of face and get the treatment done. You will be needing antibiotics for this but it can be taken after prescription. The dentist will take xray and find out the tooth which is causing the infection. If possible the root canal treatment will be done or it is pulled out. For more info on RCT you can read this article... www.identalhub.com/article_why-is-root-canal-treatment-rct-required-299.aspx
