I Had A Tooth Snap Off Weeks Ago. When I’ve Finished With The Antibiotics Do I Go To My Dentist Or The Hospital?

Q.
Hello Dr Moore. I had an upper right tooth snap off several weeks ago. It caused me no pain at the time, however in the last few days it has and is causing me serious pain and extreme facial swelling. My GP has prescribed antibiotics but the pain remains regardless. What can I take to try to relieve it? When I have finished the antibiotics do I go to a dentist or hospital? There are still remnants of the tooth in the gum but the pain is awful. I have very little funds and need to know where to turn. Thank you for your reply in advance.

Hello and thank you for getting in touch. You’ll need it removing by the sounds of things so go to the dentist or book an appointment as soon as possible. Try to find someone locally who can sort this out for you. It’s best to go to the dentist whenever you have problems related to tooth injuries and swelling in the mouth. I hope this helps you with any problems in the future. Best wishes, Dr Andrew Moore.
