teeth about 2 weeks ago i been experiencing teeth pain. now my gums are severely inflamed and my last tooth on my right bottom mouth has been extremely painful. my jaw wont open more than one inch. when i chew food my gums feel like they are getting bit into. but now its extremely hard to eat anything. i can only eat food that don't involve chewing. but even that its painful to my gums and jaw. should i go to the ER? a dentist appointment takes to long. pain gets worst by day.
I suggest you take a course of antibiotics (metronidazole and amoxicillin) and analgesics. A x-ray for the tooth and treatment is absolutely necessary. Your mouth opening will increase only after the infection subsides. Extraction or a rootcanal can be decided based on the xray.
