In brief: Dentist

Your dentist should be able to determine if it is a problem with your teeth, the gum tissue, or your crowns.
If s/he is unable to do so, get a referral to a periodontist or endodontist who can further assist you.

In brief: Infection

The vile taste and the swelling clearly suggests an infection.
Yes, go see your dentist. Sometimes it takes time for the cause of an infection to become evident. At this point, the cause of the infection should be apparent.
