I went to the dentist yesterday because I was feeling a lot of pain in one of my lower molars. He said I have an abscessed tooth. He gave me antibiotics. He told me I have two options, a canal or an extraction. I chose the latter and I am scheduled next week. Today, I woke up with swollen and face. I don't think the antibiotic is working. What could keep the swelling down? Should I use ice or heat? Please give me instructions as to what to do.
I would highly appreciate your answers!
