I had a tooth which was badly infected and had a collection of underneath it. I went to the dentist who immediately performed a root canal on the tooth. He said my bite was slightly changed because of the infected tooth.
It's been two days since the and I noticed that my around the treated tooth are very much swollen. They bleed easily. I woke up this morning with a slight fever. I now get a bit of nausea. Is it possible that I still have an infection? After the the canal procedure, the dentist sent me on my way without any prescriptions for antibiotics or painkillers. Should I ask for a prescription of antibiotics from him? Please help!!! Thanks a lot!
