Hi,
Started to get tooth ache in right side of mouth. Can’t really locate pain but seems to be in right front crown, then jumps to back and so on.

Dentist isn’t 100% as pain comes and goes and just came on me after eating.

I’m on a antibiotics to rule out infection. Anyway to help with pain I put some clove oil on front tooth and I feel like it’s made it worse. Previously I could eat but now I feel like I don’t want to bite down. When I put bit of pressure on tooth it goes really tight.

I’m back in dentist next week, half way through antibiotics.

Any advice? It’s getting me down

X-rays to show us, and any results from clinical tests (percussion, vitality, perio probing)? Just taking antibiotics to "rule out an infection" is lazy dentistry and poor antibiotic stewardship. Plus, it doesn't always work for an infection anyway, so it can't be used to "rule it out".
