The swelling would be a healing reaction to the removal of teeth. If Antibiotic coverage is not been given this is quite possible. If the extractions are done in heavy infection and trauma it might lead to carcinoma. It is best you rule out infection first by using antibiotics. This could also be Dry Socket a condition common after extraction of teeth. Also understand that these reactions are mostly seen in medically compromised individuals with Diabetes etc. Kindly Check it up
