Brief Answer:
Check your blood pressure

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for your query at HealthcareMagic.

Little swelling of temples while chewing food is normal. If there is too much swelling, then it may be happening due to increased blood pressure. It may also be due to dental misalignment. Please let me know if there is any other symptom. Do you have any allergies?

Kindly get your BP checked. Also a consultation with dentist may help.
