Hello,
Thanks for your query.
From description it seems you have infection. your infected tooth has gone worse and you have developed a periodontal abscess due to spread of infection to the underlying tissues. All you are experiencing because of infection.
The lump or swelling you can notice under the mandible is nothing but the abscess cavity and it drains the pus in the oral cavity.
This type of periodontal abscess needs to be drained and compressed in position and then followed by a course of antibiotic and analgesic will subside the symptoms of pain and swelling.
tooth can be extracted.
get an x ray done the affected area and approach a dentist for the treatment.
meantime you can start with antibiotic augmentin 625mg with analgesics two times daily, this helps in subsiding the swelling and pain.
I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query.
Take care
I find this answer helpful

Had abscess tooth about month ago for 2nd time, dentist advised meds and then root canal again. Has been one month since root canal, swelling is back, same as always everytime under the eye. The nerve in my mouth is sore but not the capped tooth. Should I see same again or does this sound like medical doctor needed. Tooth is a cap if that matters. Tooth has never hurt, but swelling always appeared later.

Hi, about 5 years ago I had a root canal on a molar and then a gold crown. I later found that my xray shows 3 to 4 broken small rotary files broken inside my root but also, one of the broken tools was deep down in my lower gum below the root (??). After the gold crown was installed, I have had a metallic taste on the same crown and I have even had a dentist ask me if I had a gold allergy. She said that I had problems around the tooth, on the gums, that looked like an allergic reaction and the gums had turned a white color. I really can t handle this much longer. My tongue is now very sensitive and has a bump near the gold crown. I have been through H... with several dentist and have gotten different opinions from each. Thanks, Danny
