Went to see Dentist today

Went to see dentist today. She prescribed antibiotics and gave me oral surgeon's address & told me to get a tooth removed. It is infected, she said. I am going to try the antibiotics first, before letting my tooth go.

Sounds to me like the tooth is already gone and you are only going to prolong your misery.

I've had an infected/abscessed tooth.

I had to take antibiotics, then they were able to do a root canal on the tooth.

Your dentist can't handle an extraction? Maybe a second opinion?

The antibiotic is a short term answer and will not solve the problem. The pain and swelling may temporarily go away but rest assured it will be back. You need to go see the oral surgeon or another dentist and have the problem taken care of. I'm a dentist and I have seen this situation many times. Don't wait.
