A week back, one of my tooth in upper jaw was infected with bacteria and it reached the pulp of the tooth causing severe pain in that tooth. Due to some reason I was able to visit the dentist after 6 days (i.e, yesterday) and the dentist started Root Canal procedure which seem to relieve my tooth pain. But the problem is that from the past 2 days the gums area above that tooth (towards upper jaw) started to swell too resulting in severe pain. My dentist seem to ignore the swelling above that tooth but due to this pain I'm unable to work during day and sleep during night. I am taking 2 Synflex 550mg a day and 1 Ansaid Tablet during night as a pain-killer.
Please tell me what should I do? or what medicines I should take to get rid off this swelling?
