Pain in the left side of cheek can be because of many reasons
It can be because of any carious tooth on the same side which is radiating to the cheek.
It can be because of impacted wisdom tooth.
Abnormal chewing habit .
I would advice you to visit to a dentist and get complete checkup done .
Take an x-ray if required.

Thanks for posting your query.

Difficulty in swallowing,pain in cheek and soft bones is usually associated with impacted wisdom tooth which is erupting.

I would suggest you to get a thorough clinical and radiological examination at the earliest.
The wisdom tooth has to be either extracted or flap overlying tooth has to be incised and removed.
Also get your decayed teeth restored and scaling done.
Maintain good oral hygiene.
Hope this helps.

Hello San,

Pain in cheek & difficulty in swelling can be due to:
1. Spasm of the muscle of mastication
2. Dental infection
3. Temporomandibular joint syndrome
4. Pharyngitis

So, it will be better to consult a Dentist & get a proper examination done.
Based upon that, appropriate management steps could be taken.

For symptomatic relief, you can take analgesics & muscle relaxants.
Do warm water gargle to relieve throat pain, and avoid cold food & drinks.

Wishing you Good Health.
Thanks and take care.

Thanks for posting your query,
Swallowing problems consist of any problem in which the normal movements associated with swallowing do not occur.
No two patients are alike in their swallowing problem; careful evaluation is necessary.
There is a wide range of treatments, some which are as simple as changing the patient's head or body position when they swallow, or changing the kinds of foods they eat. Others involve the patient's learning new ways to swallow. Some procedures exercise muscles that are not working properly.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful
