Infected wisdom tooth
I have an infected wisdom tooth . I went to the doctor as soon as the pain started. Doctor put me on a painkiller and antibiotics. It has been 2 days but as soon as the pain killer wears off the pain starts again and it is unbearable..i cannot get an extraction done till next month now. Can the infection be controlled by painkillers for a month?
