    You need to take the antibiotics for the prescribed time and the swelling will go down in due course when they have kicked in and are working.

    But the the antibiotics are not a long term solution and you will still need to see a Dentist to get the offending tooth dealt with.

    Try not to leave it as the infection can re appear and cause other issues like cysts and bone loss.

    depends on your body and how fast you heal, you should see a dentist just to be on the save side.

    It's permanent.
