The swelling shows the presence of an infection. You should consult a dentist immediately and find the tooth which is the root cause for it. It could be an abscess or a cyst. An X ray could reveal the problem.

Dentist, Endodontics Dr. Manisha Rao's  Response
Hi, the swelling seems to be an abscess. It may be periodontal related to the structures surrounding the root such as gums and bone. It may also be due to an infection in the canine or premolar. Please take an X ray, an OPG would be better. The treatment plan would depend on the X ray findings. Antibiotics, anti inflammatory medications and dental treatment are necessary. Take care!
