This answer was rated:

I am having root canal treatment but last Saturday my cheek swelled up went to the dentist he gave me antibiotics but today it swollen again and the left topside gum is swollen and hurts


If it is swelling after more than 4 days on antibiotics then either it is the wrong anti biotic or there is an abscess.

You need an x ray and exam.

Tell me the antibiotic you are on and I will comment.
