Infection?: Your symptoms could be from a dental or medical problem or even both. Swelling and fever are generally signs of an infection. I strongly recommend that you see a dentist as soon as possible for a complete and thorough examination and evaluation. Untreated infections can spread quickly and result in serious complications.

Could be infection: Best to have your teeth checked out by a dentist to rule out any problems. Could be a non-vital tooth or a wisdom tooth. Either way you need to be seen locally to be diagnosed.
