If you are located in a warm climate she could have been stung by a bee, spider or other insect.  Other causes of mouth swelling include an abscess of a tooth root, other teeth problems, and allergic reactions.

You could give her the anti-histamine Benadryl (Diphenhydramine) at a dose of one mg per pound of body weight, every four to six hours.  If the swelling does not go away or at least get better soon, please seek veterinary attention.
