Fever Following a Wisdom Tooth Extraction
Asked Oct 18, 2008, 03:59 AM
I had a wisdom tooth extracted this Monday. Starting Tuesday, a fever started to develop. I was put on Amoxicillin after the surgery, so I was happy that I was taking it in case of any infection problems. The infection is now lingering today (Saturday morning). I have no real pain except for a headache when my fever is up (to 101.1-highest). I was unable to get to the dentist yesterday because of transportation problems. Do you think that I should have him change the antibiotic today over the phone, since I can not see him until Monday?
