Having swelling and pain in 4 teeth with lump. Is this a dangerous situation ?

Is this tooth emergency? Am I in danger and should I go to ER? Month ago: Have 4 teeth in trouble starting at front tooth. Three root canals needed. Infection in bone , 2 teeth are loose. Got antibiotics and estimate for work and it over $6K. Two weeks ago: A foundation is going to help me but that help is now about a week away. Over weekend: Pain and swelling blew up. Have pain meds ( chronic pain patient) so HAD TO USE 4 morphine + 4 oxy to get pain under control. Added amoxyicillin from medicine cabinet. Today, pain down but still there. Swelling is down but hard lump in cheek. Am I in any kind of physical danger while I wait for help?

Hi DJ,
You need stronger antibiotics than amoxycillin.
please see if you can get them while you wait for the aid.
Gargle with BETADINE GARGLE every alternate hour.
All the Best for your recovery
