The next day I was in pain, and the pain continued to worsen, including some pretty severe jaw
pain. The dentist adjusted the bite, then assumed it was infection
, so put me on 10 day penicillin. Nearing the end of that, I developed swelling on the outside gum, the dentist put me on 7 day clindamycin. The swelling has decreased, the pain is nearly absent, but with 2 1/2 days left of the antibiotic, I have been feeling "twinges" in the tooth.
