  1. Hi, I recently started having pain in one of my teeth, I had it worked
    on by one dentist who filled it, and the day after it was worked on I
    immediately started experiencing pain so, I went to a different local
    dental group which diagnosed me of having an infected tooth, therefore
    requiring me to have a root canal... anyhow, they sent me home with a
    prescription of penicillin and tylenol 3, I've been taking the
    recommended dosage and things couldn't be better however, I noticed
    last night that I was bleeding out of my gums and it was swollen to the
    point where it covered up a portion of my abcess tooth. So here's the
    question, since I can't contact the group today, should I bother
    calling them about this situation? I'm supposed to get a root canal in
    a week or so anyway, would they able to fix it then or does this
    require immediate attention?
