Doctor: Hello,Thanks for the query.The swelling around the cheeks due to a dental cause could be more likely due to a toot h infection or an aphthous ulcer in the oral cavity. Avoid smoking, drinking, spicy food and soda. Drink plenty of water and have a bland diet. Mouth gargles with betadine solution diluted in warm water will help. If the problem persists, kindly consult a dentist to treat your tooth infection, as well as the swelling in the cheeks.Hope this helped.Regards
