  • Facial swelling with no tooth pain can be because of chronic tooth infection in relation to tooth, periodontal gum abscess and sinusitis. Mild pain or no pain occurs in chronic infection and it can cause swelling. Gum infections in relation to teeth can cause facial swelling and may or may not cause pain.   Apart from dental cause, facial swelling can also be because of intake of some medicaments, allergic reactions, trauma to the face or can be because of parasitic round worm infections or some other systemic factors. Without clinical examination, it is difficult to give definite diagnosis. If chronic abscess is cause of facial swelling, then root canal treatment or tooth extraction is required. If facial swelling is because of gum infection, then gum or periodontal surgery is required. Refer to your dentist and or medical doctor for definite diagnosis and treatment. It is advised not to take antibiotics on your own and take them after consultation and proper diagnosis from dentist and or physician.
