Hello I am a Certified Dental Assitant for almost 10 years. The answer to your question depends on a two things; #1 This can happen from the doctor/assistants pulling on your cheek. Some people are more sensitive than others so pulling on your cheek is like if you hit your arm or leg and you then get a bruise. The swelling should go away with-in 3-5 days (sometimes less), and the bruising should go away in 7-10 (sometimes less) days. You can help this by using an ice pack on the OUTside of your cheek for 10 min on then 10 min off for the next few days. #2 If you are having toothache symptoms, and the tooth is OVERLY sensitive to HOT and COLD as well as when you bite, and the filling was quite large, you may need further treatment on this tooth. Call your dentist, he will take an xray and determine what needs to be done next. I really think that you are having #1, so don't worry. :) You will be fine.
Any surgery has a risk of complications. Some of the risks of a cheek lift include loss of sensation in the face, bruising or swelling, internal bleeding and blood clot.
Yes, some swelling is very normal after having a tooth extracted. You may even end up with a little bit of bruising but these things should only last a few days.
Consult your Doctor immediately.
The cheek swelling was caused by bacterial infection, which food debris to the periodontal pocket of your wisdom tooth resulted in. Usually metronidazole and cefaclor should be taken orally about one week. The wisdom tooth need to be pulled out until the cheek swelling cure.
Hi, You need to see your doctor or dentist. The swelling on your cheek may be due to treatment the dentist performed or a mouth ulcer.
Answer, Could be that you have an infection in your mouth. I'd recommend that if the swelling doesn't go down in a day or so, go see a doctor.
I had scaling and root planing and my face was so swollen first and second day and now my whole cheek is bruised 5 days out!
If you have swelling in your right cheek that is attached to your muscle, but there's no pain, this could be caused from a bruise. It's a good idea to see a doctor if it persists.
Yes, bruising and swelling are very common complications of wisdom tooth extraction. The swelling will be at its worst 48-36 hours after the extraction before it begins to die off. Apply an ice pack to the swollen area. I hope I have been of some assistance. Dr Nicholas Manning BDS Glasg MFDS (RCSEng)
put an ice bag on it
This is usually due to inflammation of parotid gland or lymph node inflammation.
no it isnot
Maybe its a ghost a past love one that kissed you on the cheek.
Because sometimes more pressure is on your right butt cheek
Facial swelling under the eyes and cheeks can be caused by a mild to serious disorder. Swelling may even be caused by an allergic reaction from food to animal dander.
No, definatly not.
One thing you want to do is apply ice cold water.
The area got irritated due to the root canal. Swelling is a natural response to the irritation. It is annoying to have cheek swelling. I just had a root canal done and absolutely disgusted w/the experience. I've been doing a lot of research and it says the swelling varies person to person but can last up to a week. However, make sure you have a follow up appt within a month to recheck area.
yes, that is normal, if you have swelling after 24 hours, and no fever or a headache its ok,what you can do, you can put a warm compress on the cheek. you can heat a warm towel in the microwave.
Several causes... if this is about your butt cheek, then try using cortisone cream, ifit doesnt g way see a dr.
The inside cells of the cheek are living cells. The cheek cells outside are dead and filled with keratin. These living cells have a nucleus which contains DNA. This is a very easy way to gather DNA samples and it is not invasive.
