2 days ago, I complained about 3 teeth on the top left side hurting. I figured it was my wisdom tooth trying to come in and moving my teeth to do it, so I took ibuprofen and used some orajel and dealt with the pain. The next day, I had the same toothache, but there was also a sore spot along my gums, right where the gums meet the cheek. It hurts to the touch but I didn't notice any major swelling. I tried ice, more orajel, and alieve/ibuprofen. Nothing truly helped, except for the 30 minutes of relief from the pain killer. The next morning, (this morning), my entire left cheek is swollen to the point where I can't open my mouth. what the heck is happening?
You need a dentist, asap! You may have put this off so long that the jawbone may be infected, just sayin', not trying to be judgmental about this.
You may need a wisdom tooth extracted, this exact thing happened to me and I put it off way to long as well. The pain you are experiencing is just a symptom of a problem, so get thyself to the dentist as soon as you are able to do so.
I hope you can be seen very soon and hope your jawbone isn't infected.
Best wishes to you swollen,
