Headache pain after dental procedure

Went to the dentist 2 weeks ago for a filling. And after having the procedure I've been in a lot of pain (was in no pain before this). First the pain was in my teeth and now suffering really bad headaches. I went back to the dentist, and she said I've got an infection and gave me antibiotics. Can anyone give me advice on why I'm still suffering with really bad headaches? I'm using a lot of paracetamol

Also dentist did say I might need root canal work and a wisdom tooth removing.

Good day
For toothache, it is usually best to take anti-inflammatory medicine, since paracetamol, by itself, won't do the trick. The pain might be because of the required root canal treatment that needs to happen or a combination between that and the wisdom teeth that needs removal. I think it is best that you go back to see your dentist. Surely he must have arranged a follow-up visit with you.
