I had an infection under a tooth & it was agreed the dentist would extract the tooth (I had Amoxicillin as antibiotic - as a side issue it was interesting for me, and my dentist, to learn that medicine options no longer all come wrapped in non-veggie gel - you have to tell them though - although I was not 100% happy that the only sugar-free alternative had sorbitol & saccharine, was far too sweet, and had known side-effects like being a bit too laxative). Anyway the CLL issue was that I noticed my lumps under the jawline were harder & a new one appeared above the jawline. When I called the Macmillan nurse at the haematology unit she said dental trouble can affect the lumps so no need to recheck at hospital unless it fails to subside after about 2 weeks. Nobody told me about this before, so this may be useful for others.
