... she had a swollen face and large swollen tongue on the side where the tooth hurt, and severe chills in day 3! What happened to her and how do I help her reduce the tongue & face swelling? Also, she said the dentist is not going to do anything until she's no longer swollen. Can Orajel take away all of the swelling with repeated use?
Most likely if your sister has been having pain & swelling from a tooth, and it's now day 3 she's probably suffering from an abscessed (infected) tooth.
The best way to get the swelling down would be a combination of an antibiotic and apply ice to her face.
If she was seen by a dentist and the dentist didn't fix the tooth right away it was because she needed an antibiotic first to get the swelling down then the dentist would correct the abscessed tooth.
In the meantime, it's safe to apply orajel to the tooth in hopes of alleviating the pain.
