The most obvious symptom is swollen gums or jaw; you may appear as if you have a big lump of something in your cheek. You also will probably have a bad toothache but not always. (I personally had a toothache for several days, then woke up one day with the toothache gone but with a swollen jaw; I had to go on antibiotics to treat the infection, and eventually had the tooth extracted.)
