Should i continue to take my antibiotics?

I got all 4 of my wisdom teeth out at the same time. I'm on the 4th day and the pain is pretty much gone except my cheeks are a little swollen. I just started taking some antibiotics. Do i really need to continue taking them after my cheeks stop swelling?

    Yes. Continue taking the antibiotics as directed on the bottle or by your doctor until the bottle is completely finished.

    Source(s): While the symptoms have gone, the bacteria are still milling about. If you stop taking antibiotics now, the bacteria have time to recuperate, gain antibiotic resistance, and come back with a vengeance.

    Take the antibiotic as recommended on the bottle or as directed as your dentist/doctor.
