I had a major cavity on my upper first premolar and the tooth became dark in color. Two weeks ago, my cheek felt so tight and the gum above this tooth was very swollen. The dentist said, I have an infection and he put me on antibiotics for 7 days. I then had a canal on this tooth two days ago. The dentist filled the hole with a and I will go back in a week for the permanent filling. Before I left the dental office, the dentist said there was a large amount of decay on the tooth that he had worked on.
Now, two days had already passed but I still feel the pain. The swelling on my gum is still present. It is tender and it hurts when I press it. Does this mean, the infection was not completely cleared up? It seemed there is a in it. Should I be concerned? Please advise!
Thank you very much.
