Welcome to e health forum.

Your symptoms in your face (swollen and tender face) indicates a possible maxillary sinus infection (spread from the dental infection) or cavernous sinus thrombosis.

Such conditions need to be properly treated urgently to avoid more serious complications like thrombosis within the cranial cavity.

Hence it would be recommended that you consult with your doctor and get a proper medical help.
