Hi. Don't wait much. Please visit a dentist, get an X-ray done. Get antibiotics and analgesics started. Most probably this tooth of yours will go for extraction/ removal.
Consult a maxillofacial surgeon I wonder if I today's times one requires any wisdom if not in correct direction get it removed.
Visit a dentist every six months for cleaning and a thorough dental check-up. Limit sugary food to avoid tooth decay. Gargle your mouth thoroughly after every meal. Scrub gently to clean your tongue with a tongue cleaner. Floss all your teeth inter dentally & brush twice daily, morning & night, up & down short vertical strokes, with ultra-soft bristles, indicator brush. Tooth brush to be changed every 2 months.
