First I had a root canal and there was an infection, then I had the tooth extracted due to continued extreme pain and there was still an infection present. The socket is healing and have been prescribed Metronidazole 500 mg - with no relief yet. Any idea how long on this dose 4 x a day until I may feel some relief? Or what to do next if I go all 10 days w no relief?
Sew; What I would think that if you not getting any relief by tomorrow you should give the dentist a call I have seen this used often when they work on a tooth that was Infected and when they get in there the find that it is still Infected But normally you would notice something in 3 to 4 days. So call tomorrow if it's about the same or still any swelling. Have a good evening. Chuck1957
