Impacted Tooth: If you have an impacted wisdom tooth that is causing your issues, it may need to be extracted to resolve your problems.

Infection: please see a specialist Oral Surgeon immediately. No, this will not self-cure neither will medication alone result in a cure. Swelling of your upper face is quite serious because of proximity to eyes, brain, etc. Please seek care immediately.
