I developed a gum infection around my wisdom tooth a week ago today! I was in terrible pain, went to dentist to discover I have impacted wisdom tooth so had an infection in the gum. She prescribed metronozidole. Which I have taken for 5 days 3 times a day last one was last night.
My question is this… how do I know totally if infection has cleared?
I was in agony and on lots of painkillers, yesterday only felt the need for painkillers once. Today not actually in pain anymore but aware of my gum and jaw feels abit achy and stiff more than anything else.
I am just scared re it coming back.
I am booked to see dentist in 2 weeks to discuss options ie do I try and keep on top of it and clean it or have it removed.
My questions is should I be totally pain free today and back to 100% normal or am I expecting too much. After having an infection I presume maybe it does take a while for things to settled down and as discussed the pain is not there now?
Just wanted advice on how other people have felt when they stopped taking antibiotics
