If you have visit the dentist if pain and swelling is increasing because you go need antibiotics to control infection and that can be prescribed by dentist. Till then you can do warm saline rinses, keep that area very clean and maintain very good oral hygiene. Do warm saline rinses 2-3 times a day, this will help in controlling infection. If dentist is not available then you can go to ER. For more info you read this article.... http://www.identalhub.com/article_do's-and-don'ts-after-tooth-extraction-153.aspx
