Without clinically seeing the case its not possible to tell anything , but it might be because of cheek bite due to 3rd molar erupting in the mouth, but for proper diagnosis you should visit a dentist near you.

hello,you can do warm salt water rinses as a home remedy, but this will give only temporary relief from pain. you need to visit a dentist and get it checked. get an x-ray done. if there is a cavity, you need to get it filled. if there is infection to the root of the tooth, you need to get it treated.

First of all visit your dentist who would probably take an x Ray evaluate your case then make a diagnosis of your case only then the dentist will give you the best treatment plan depending on your case Don't neglect any swelling or it might aggravate further and most importantly in this case don't self medicate without a proper diagnosis in this case
