i have an abcessed tooth. last week my dentist was going to try to go ahead and remove the tooth, but never could get the area all the way numb. She sent me home with antibiotics and said she would try to work me in later. My tooth is getting worse, i am having headaches, stomach aches, and I can feel where she tried to deaden my gums to numb gum and jaw are swollen and extremely painful...almost more than my tooth. It hurts to chew or smile or open my mouth very wide (like to yawn, ex). Is there something I should be concerned about or just wait for her to fit me in.

How can I tell if a tooth infection is spreading elsewhere? I had a root canal a couple of months ago. The pain returned 2 weeks ago. I’m allergic to penicillin so my dentist has me on clindamycin. I’ve been on it for 14 days. It took about 7 days for the pain to begin getting 9 the extreme nerve pain, face/jaw swelling has returned. I’ve been on antibiotics for 14days and now I have tightening in my chest when I’m lying down. Headache, ear pain

I think I have infected teeth/ gums, went to dentist about upper last tooth I have left, giving me grief with infection. Xray showed nothing. Went to endodontist, he found nothing on top but said bottom end one I have left is cracked and needs pulled. I had it pulled. Think it is infected in that gum area and top above as I first reported. Went back to dentist who pulled the tooth and said I have infection, he said no it is dry socket. It has been two and a half weeks, still have what I think is an infection. I have noduals that appeared on gums under tongue, before tooth pulled, 2 on each side and my cheeks are swollen and thick, before tooth was pulled as well. I am concerned about the thick cheeks, would this be related to infected mouth or some other health issue. I am having thyroid trouble as well?
