If you experience swelling of the mouth, jaw, or face that you
believe is related to your dental health it is very important to see a
dentist immediately. Swelling that is not the result of an injury or
recent procedure or swelling that persists beyond a week after a
dental procedure may be due to an infection which can be very serious.
If you are experiencing facial swelling, call us at (516) 565-3435 or (516) 348-2000. In the mean time, take note of:
- whether swelling is accompanied by pain and where it is localized
- how long swelling has persisted
- what appears to make it better (aspirin?) or worse (eating/drinking?)
- any other symptoms
