You should go to a dentist or head to the emergency room right away at a hospital.  The swelling can continue to get larger and can spread to the rest of your face/neck and potentially into the chest area.

You can try the antibiotic and wash your mouth out several times a day with salt water. if you get no relief after three days on the meds, get it checked out.
