There are many potential causes of this so i recommend seeing a dentist. If it is a gum or tooth abscess, you need treatment. There are may other potential problem, so you need a diagnosis to treat this unless it is something simple like 'you stabbed yourself with a fork' or 'burned yourself on hot pizza'.

You need to see a dentist asap to, diagnose and treat this. It sounds like you have an infection so you need treatment. You can take ibuprophen 600 mg to ease the pain, rinse with warm salt water and using an ice pack will, help keep you comfortable until you can see a dentist in the morning.
