Visit dentist and get a Xray done. If it is in an unfavourable position, get it pulled out. If not a procedure called operculectomy can be done.

As per your symptoms it is likely to be due to an accidental cheek bite or wisdom tooth eruption . I would advise you to visit a dentist so that you can be examined and undergo investigations such as X-Ray to find the underlying cause and have it treated accordingly. You may require antibiotics and pain, the symptoms should subside in 2-3 days. These following steps may help: - Do salt water gargle with lukewarm water thrice a day. - Brush your teeth regularly, preferably twice a day. - If you have habits of chewing betel leaves, tobacco, etc kindly stop If the condition persists or worsens visit the dentist at the earliest
Next Steps
Follow the steps as advised
