In brief: Oral Surgeon

Get to the oral surgeon asap.
They can help you with this. Often they can provide medications to relax the jaw prior to the extraction.

In brief: Seek treatment ASAP

You need to see an oral surgeon immediatly.
They will probably put you on an antibiotic for a few days to reduce the infection and then extract the tooth. Sometimes thay can extract the tooth right away. Dont put off treatment. This type of infection can have life threatening consequences if left untreated.
