I have diabetes and this caused my tooth to break. I went to do an extraction few months ago and i had another tooth painfull so decided to take that one out. The remaining one( the broke one) has a little root left which i will take out when the hospital finishes holidays as my dentist does not take teeth out. It started swelling so i went to the dentist. They prescribed me amoxicillin and corsodil. The thing is..my gum started swelling more inside, where the tooth was. I am on antibiotics from 36 hours ago, but now i get headaches. Should i take a trip to the emergency room ? It scares me so bad sad

    I SEE YOUR CONCERN ,,,i would give the antibiotics a little more time ,, infection causing headache ,, they need to try and disarm this infected route possibly , since other tooth was pullled usually infection dies ,, but possibly other route might be going down ,,, i would rest, every 4 hours  advils, warm salt water ,, and see if headache subsides ,, maybe medicine causeing headache ,, if swollen gets worse or stiffness in jaw ,, call doctor ,, try a dentist before doctor ,, thats my opinion ,, i am not a dentist or doctor ,, just a recent amount of pain and restoration and 36 years of dental misery ,, a lot of it was caused by some bad dentist ,, now water under the bridge ,,,,
