Patient discussion about unilateral

Q. after dinner my daughters jaw swelled up on one side and hurts her, so does her neck on that side. What does this mean? she is 9, no fever or any other ill effects, just the pain

A. weird. swelled up fast? does she have problem breathing? if so- it could be an allergic reaction. if she has problems breathing - GO NOW TO AN ER!!!
if it took a little bit - could be food that got stuck in her gums really hard causing an edema.
if it was slow (over night) could be an abscess in her tooth (a tooth decay that penetrated to the dental pulp).
any way i would go check it out.
