Hey Ladies.. This all started with a tooth ache. My tooth started hurting on Sunday by Sunday night I had a little swelling. Monday morning a little pain still swelling. Monday night, severe swelling and excruciating pain. Tuesday, I went to the dentist and was given antibiotics and pain reliever. I have to take it for ten days total but go back to the dentist on Monday. I am left with a face that looks like I was in a serious boxing match and got my ass whooped. My eye on the right side of my face is completely shut.. I am in so much pain. Have any of you ladies ever had an abscess? If yes, what did your dentist suggest as a course of treatment? My dentist suggest that I save the tooth by having a root canal, I am thinking I just want this diseased tooth out of my mouth. Anyone have any advice. Se'ymoneTweet this!
