Yes, I would recommend that you contact your dentist to get it checked out again. They may want to switch to a stronger antibiotic or a different one since the Amoxicillin may not be working well for your infection. Anytime there's difficulty in swallowing with a dental infection is serious. They may want to remove the teeth immediately.
