Hi. Welcome to JustAnswer. I am Dr Uzair.I am reviewing your post and will post back with your reply momentarily.
There is probably some infection and inflammation going on in your tooth making it feel tight and painful. I would recommend you to take tablet advil ( ibuprofen twice daily) as it would relieve pain and inflammation. In case symptoms do not improve do visit your doctor for prescription antibiotics.
Hope this helps.
