Re: Gum infection and antibiotics
Hang in there. Antibiotics take three or four days to start to work. In the meantime, use warm salt water (1/4tsp in 8oz warm water) and rinse your mouth with it four or five times a day. This will help relieve some of the pain and start to help reduce the swelling. Also, to help with swelling, sleep with your head slightly elevated at night.
Time is your friend here.
Hope this helps.
Hang in there!
Best to you,
