Hi Joe,
A swelling around the root canal treated tooth looks like there is an infection. An Xray of the tooth would give an idea of the problem .Consult your dentist at the earliest. An infection of the tooth can result in mobility of the tooth. If required a re-treatment of the tooth should be done to solve the problem.
