Tooth still aches even after taking antibiotics!

I have been suffering from an abscessed tooth for two days. My face was swollen and I had severe pain. I used to take painkillers whenever I experience a toothache. Most of the times it was very helpful in relieving the pain. Likewise, this time also, I took painkillers to reduce the pain and kept it untreated as I thought it would cure after some days. This is the worst one that I have ever encountered. Taking painkillers didn't help me. So I went to a nearby GP. He prescribed antibiotics for three days. After taking the antibiotics, the swelling went down but my tooth still aches. Now only I realize that it should be treated earlier. And I am worried whether the infection would spread to my remaining teeth. So my mom suggested seeking help from an emergency dental clinic in Toronto ( http://www.emergency-dental-365.com/contact-us/emergency-dental-care-tor... ). Am I too late to see the dentist? What do you think? Any suggestions?
