I went to the dentist yesterday and I was given antibiotics. This morning I woke up and my face is completely swollen. Do I need to go back to the dentist or just let the antibiotics do their job?

  • You have just started with antibiotics and they take minimum 4-5 doses to have their effect. So just wait and let the anitbiotics do their job. If swelling does not start decreasing within 3 days of taking antibiotics then you have to go to dentist. Till then maintain good oral hygiene and take all precautions and donot eat from that side. Take soft diet and follow all instruction given by dentist.
