If the bite is not too deep should heal naturally within 2-3 days.you can supplement healing by taking oral vitamin c and b complex supplements.If it burns to eat or drink you can apply a locally available mouth ulcer gel which will soothe and numb the area 15 minutes prior to eating.
Next Steps
Avoid hot foods & use an ice pack to reduce the primary swelling
Health Tips
If you are not comfortable by now you should be consulting a dentist

Swelling would eventually come down. As far as pain is concerned please apply an anaesthetic gel every 2 hours and compulsorily half an hour before your meal.
