In brief: No

You need to see a dentist.
What you are describing sounds very similar to the onset of a dental abcess. Do you have broken teth or cavities that have not been filled?

In brief: Could be....!

Sounds like a possible swollen (infected) lymph node.
Are you having any fever? I think a visit to your doc in the am would be very appropriate, but the er is appropriate if you can't be seen for several days. These types of infections can get quite severe if not addressed quickly!
