Pain in gums and teeth, swollen and irritated tongue, difficult to swallow, had fever. Tooth abscess?

Hi there I went to the doctor the other day for what I thought was possibly strep throat and still could be but I have new symptoms.... My entire mouth hurts gums , teeth , swoolen and irritated tounge, i can only drink water which still hurts alittle.. Do you have any other possiblities? I m concerned because I have had a high fever for 4 days now. I looked online and the closest match to my symptoms was a tooth abcess which I do have a broken tooth. What should I do?
