Question: Can you tell me please, yesterday a tooth began to hurt, today there was formed a flush, the dentist put drainage, prescribed antibiotics, but the fact is that more than five hours have passed, but the pain in the tooth is only getting worse, the swelling has become larger. Tell me when it will probably get easier? The gum itself does not hurt, but the tooth is very strong aching.
Answer: A relieving incision and drainage is a temporary measure, you need to eliminate the cause of the swelling. You need to see your dentist for treatment of the tooth or it may have to be extracted.
