It took me over one week for it to go down. I eat ice cream. That helped a little. If it is very bad pain, you should call the dentist back. You may have an infection, or it could just be that you have more pain. If it is still just a little swollen and uncomfortable, that is normal. Just chew on the other side of your mouth and try to eat soft, easy to chew foods. Drink lots of water and juice and try to relax as much as possible. Your body needs rest to heal itself.
