In brief: Difficult to diagnos

Without examining you.
Best to call the treating dentist for recommendations. Assume he gave you an antibiotic to take following treatment. Hope this helps.

In brief: Probably

But difficult to tell without examination.
Assuming treating Dentist or Oral Surgeon gave you a course of antibiotics to take. Call practitioner and report your symptoms, especially if the "lump" is enlarging, or you have increasing pain, or a foul taste in your mouth.
