Drained abscess

User Level:
Patient
Posted by: 8wster77  (8 years ago)
I have a severely abscessed molar and a swollen area on my cheek. The dentist drained it out and put me on antibiotics. After five days of taking the antibiotics, the swelling had gone down but the area feels tight. The area of skin over the drained abscess is numb. Is this normal? Or should I be concerned?

Well, when are you going to follow up and do the root canal on the tooth? You have had emergency treatment only. The cause of the infection has not yet been removed.
