  • Swelling in the jaw line is because of the decayed tooth as by now it must have become infected which causes the swelling. For this you have to go to dentist. He will take the pano and see whether it can be saved or not. If it can be saved then you will have to undergo Root Canal Treatment otherwise you will have to get it pulled out. It is better you get the treatment done as this is focus of infection and bad for body.
