Swelling behind front teeth can be there because of a supernumerary tooth (extra tooth) eruption or can occur because of ectopic eruption of some other adult tooth. If your front teeth are baby teeth, then they can be adult teeth erupting behind baby teeth. Swelling behind front teeth can also be there because of infection or some pathology. Without clinical examination and without seeing the x-rays, it is difficult to give definite diagnosis.  You can visit your dentist for evaluation. If it is because of supernumerary teeth, then extraction of extra tooth can be done. Supernumerary tooth can cause movement of teeth and cause crowding of teeth. If it is because of ectopic eruption of some adult tooth, then braces treatment will be required.
