It usually takes a few days for the infection to be reduced and the pain to go away.

Note: If placed on Amoxicillin as a preventive measure due to wisdom teeth removal (dentists usually prescribe a short course of antibiotics for most patients in case of any infections after the procedure), the general pain felt due to the surgery will also subside within 2 to 3 days, given no infection. Should there be an infection and no antibiotics given beforehand, you will most likely be prescribed Amoxicillin and it may take 3-5 days for the swelling and discomfort to completely go away.

From my experiences, If the infection seemed intolerable, I asked for the shot in addition to the course of pill treatment. Usually by that next day I felt better but take the whole course of treatment your doctor gives you.

Amoxicillin is an antibiotic, not a pain killer. It is likely that it was given to kill the infection that caused the problem to begin with. The pus will drain out and with it the swelling should also go away. The pain will go away with the puss, pressure and swelling. It is unlikely that, because of the infection, a pain medication would have done much anyway without the antibiotic. Zilactin or Num-zit can help to temporarily relieve pain, such as before bedtime, and is an over-the-counter medication.

Your doctor will give you pain killers along with the Amoxicillin. He may give injection of analgesic drug. You will get pain relief in reasonable time. It depends on many other factors.
