Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hello and thanks for trusting me to help you. I am a board-certified consultant with over 30 years of experience.
I understand your concern.Well as you describe, Initially, you can take Advil or Motrin.You can go in for warm saline a few times a day. This would reduce the swelling and help with the infection.Use Sensodyne toothpaste.Try Hydrogen peroxide rinse.
You could keep an ice pack on the outside of the cheek and I hope that would also help.Deep tooth decay, a traumatic blow to the tooth, and a periodontal (gum) disease are the most common reasons for oral infection. Antibiotic therapy would be there as an adjunct to control the infection.I would advise you to consult an emergency dentist.Please go through the links.https://www.nhs.uk/common-health-questions/dental-health/how-can-i-access-an-nhs-dentist-in-an-emergency-or-out-of-hours/https://www.dentaly.org/en/emergency-dentist/
