I am currently unemployed and lost my insurance. Unfortunately, my dental procedure which include 6 extraction of broken molars, wisdom teeth,and a whole list of things is estimated at $7k. I do not have a job and can not qualify for a medical load.

My right side of my face is visibly swollen and when I lay down I can actually feel the infection move into my jaw joint and ear area. The Dentist gave me a prescription of antibiotics which lasted 15 days. It helped but I can't afford to go to the dentist and the swelling has returned and is now a lot larger than before.

Is there some over the counter medicine or Homeo-remedy that I can take? IT's to the point that the use of clove oil or liquid Ambusol only numbs the inside area around my bad teeth, but pain from the swelling and the infection in my jaw up to my ear is almost unbearable. Advil, is NOT helping either?
