One month after my wisdom teeth extraction, my jaw had swollen. My dentist said, I got an infection. He opened the socket, cleaned it out and packed it with a gauze. He gave me antibiotics. I was not able to take it religiously, I forget sometimes but I was able to finish it. After a week I am already off antibiotics but it seems I am not quite healed yet. I have a lump on my and it hurts when pressed. Has my infection healed correctly? Do I need more antibiotics?
I hope to hear from you soon and thanks a lot.
