Thanks for writing in.

Swelling in cheek area can be related to dental problem.

If you will provide me some relevant information, I will be in a better position to guide you.
1. Do you have toothache?
2. Is the pain radiating to your head region on the same side?
3. Is the swelling located in front of the jaw or behind the jaw?
4. Did you take any medicine for that?

Awaiting for your reply

Thanks for providing me all the details.

You mentioned all the details about your treatment.

I suppose the swelling is in the same region then two possibilities strike me now
1) Improper oral hygiene
2) Improper procedure during cyst removal.

Since the odds are in favor of dental problem I will suggest you please revisit your dentist who did the procedure. You may probably require x-ray. Follow all the given instructions properly to maintain oral hygiene.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have further any query, I will be very happy to help you.

Take care.
