Naproxen is an anti-inflammatory drug and it will help with swelling and inflammation but it is not an antibiotic. If there is infection present, it will not help the infection. I recommend that you consult a dentist. If the swelling is just due to inflammation the naproxen is a good choice but if the swelling is due to infection, you will need to treat the underlying infection with an antibiotic.
Hello Pauline L. Yes it should help you. Naproxen is an nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug or nsaid for short. I hope you get to feeling better soon, pledge
