Brief Answer:
Could be food allergy, angioedema

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome to Ask A Doctor service.

I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

I have seen the photo and it may be a symptom of food allergy or angioedema or maye teeth problem. Is she allergic to any food or medicine? She she eat any particular food recetly. Does she have any other symptom?
She can try an anti-allergic and see if it lessens. Otherwise a physical examination with doctor preferably surgeon is needed. Radiology/ultrasound of swelling maybe helpful in diagnosis.
Kindly revert back to me with details of any other symptoms present, so that I am better able to help.

Hope this helps. Let me know if I can assist you further.
