I chipped a tooth a few days ago, the next day my face started swelling. originally i went to a urgent care where they made a small cut on my gum/lip line and pushed out nearly an oz of puss. i left with pain killers and antibiotics but the next day it was only worse. I went to the ER sunday/monday at midnight stayed overnight,( on an IV and a liquid antibiotic that made the swelling go down alot), where they decided that i had a cavity on my chipped tooth inside of my gum causing an absess(spelling?) and an infection.. I had the dentists at the hospital remove my tooth and left with more antibiotics and pain killers. I went to bed and woke up the next day to a swollen face once again.. IS this just something i have to wait out and hope the antibiotics are doing their job? or should more be done?
