She didn't have pain for two week, it was reducing gradually, yest all of a sudden she has too much pain and swollen again. Should we visit a dentist Or a normal doc ?

If after 2 weeks, there is persistent pain in the same region, it would better you visit a dentist to rule out any teeth related problem and since there is a history of trauma, it would better to get an OPG xray for evaluation.
