I got this zinging pain in the teeth on the upper right side of my face so I was taking tylenol and putting anbesol on the gum area above where it hurt. The pain dulled down but is still there so I stopped taking the tylenol and anbesol. Now my right cheek is slightly swollen and painful to the touch but the gums aren't swollen at all. I have a dentist appointment in 1 week, is this something I should be really concerned about to get it looked at before my appointment as an emergency or no?
