evening!

I went for another root canal appointment for my upper tooth, when she opened the tooth, it started bleeding from the inside so she checked the gum around the tooth and she was concerned that the tooth was too compromised to take a root canal.

So she advised this tooth get taken out, she took an X-ray and the tooth looks like it’s sitting in my sinus cavity so she has referred me to the hospital. Since then I’m getting pain that is getting worse progressively throughout the day, I’m about to go get painkillers as it’s got to that level of pain now. She said to go back to get antibiotics in the meantime if I have pain that lasts 24hrs over painkillers.

Is this normal? Is this okay? Concerned

Thanks

It's fine, go and get the antibiotics. Don't worry about the tooth/sinus thing either. It's no big deal at all.
