Problems w/my gum

I go to the dentist the 18th but last night when I went to bed, everything was fine. When I woke up today, on my left side on my last molar, on the outside of my gum its swollen to the point my cheek is swollen too. It is painful when I touch it, and its only swollen around that tooth on the outside. What could it be? I took an 800mg Motrin at 6 and hasnt helped one bit
