Hi, I have a problem with my left cheek swelling. I had surgery on a tooth last week, no problems for about a week. Then one night I seen a little swollen area beside my nose, later that night it was a little bigger. The next morning my whole left side was swollen!!!!! Anyone have any ideas??? Could it be from the surgery or something else???:confused:

  • you probably have an absess caused by some bacteria that got into the cavity after you dental process. You need to call your dentist and let him/her know, they should do something about it at no additional charge since it is related to the procedure you just had, you may however have to pay for a precription for anitbiotics.
