Swelling and Pain

User Level:
Patient
Posted by: morePain  (8 years ago)
I am currently on antibiotics because of my abscessed molar. I scheduled for a root canal treatment. It is my second day with the antibiotics, my jaw is still swollen, and it is very painful.

Will the swelling and pain subside as I take the antibiotics? I would be grateful for your responses.

It would help a lot if someone could lance the abscess and let the pus drain. Antibiotics alone clear dental infections very slowly, if it works at all.
