I was having some jaw pain so I went to the dentist and I have a bad cavity on my upper right wisdom tooth which he is going to extract on the 21st but I have to take round of amoxicillin 500mg 4 times a day. I have been taking them since Tuesday my tooth doesn’t hurt just went I touch it it is very sensitive. Will it hurt when he extracts the tooth? Or should I not fill any pain once the infection pills kick in??
Normally it takes about a week for the infection to go away. With your dosage, the time might be shorter than that. It didn't hurt when the dentist extracted the tooth since you should be on anesthesia. The infection should go away in a week or so. However, you might feel sensitive or have funny feelings for months after the extract. I personally experienced it.
