What causes swelling and bruising of the cheek after a molar is filled?
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.
How do you stop cheek swelling i didn't get my wisdom teeth out and I'm pretty sure I'm not allergic to anything i woke up and my cheek and a little bit of my neck hurt and my cheek was swelling?
After you have wisdom teeth pulled is it normal for your eye to be bruised and your cheek to be swollen?
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)
You had swelling and bruising after having a temporary crown put on you went back to the Dentist and he said that he must have hit something with the novacaine injection has anyone ever heard of this?
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.
It could be a number of problems. Gum or tooth infection; Skin problem; Mouth ulcer; Bruising due to contact. Due to the intense nature which you describe, I would see a doctor immediately, unless of course the issue resolves spontaneously, in which case, a doctors visit will not be necessary.

If you experience numbness and swelling on cheek after a molar extraction when will thickness and swelling go away and will it be before the next visit the dentist?
rinsing after coffee, tea, soft drinks, all snacks, and smoking during the entire initial healing time. Swelling of the area is perfectly normal during the first part of healing an oral piercing. It can be greatly reduced by gently sucking (rather than chewing) on clean ice. Chipped or shaved ice, or small cubes are best. The majority of the swelling usually only lasts for 3-5 days.
