Naproxen can help with swelling but if you have not contacted a doctor or a dentist please do so, this can be an abscess which can be DEADLY if not taken care of in time. It could also get infected.

I would get on a course of amoxicillan and then see if it needs dental work. I keep my mouth healthy with Myrrh extract on a broken filling that a dentist was ready to tear my mouth apart to do his job. I keep amoxicillan on hand since I Had a hip replacement and need to protect myself IF I do dental work.

Anyway, get it healed and also I have been using Grape Seed Extract for 19 yrs soon and it does a great job for the mouth/gums... I also use hydrogen peroxide to keep mouth clean. Always take probiotics when using antiobiotics... I use probiotics daily anyway.
