Q.

Root canal

I had a root canal done on one tooth, 2 days ago. It''s rather swollen now and a little sensitive. I have to go back next week for the second part, but don''t know what to expect (in terms of pain and swelling afterwards). Thing is: we''re going on holiday the next day, and I''m wondering if I should move the appointment.

the swelling is an indication of an abscess having formed on the tooth. See your dentist immediately.
