In brief: Pain/swelling
Usually pain and swelling in the gums underneath the culprit tooth.
Sometimes if the infection is severe enough you may get a fever. The tooth may feel more loose or hitting the opposing tooth harder when you close your mouth.

In brief: Pain/sweling
Any abcess that is acute will produce much pain and likely swelling.
Pain can radiate toward your ear and/or up toward your eye as well. Call your dentist asap. You will need antibiotic and either a root canal or extraction if it is an abcess.
