Hi, Thanks for query,
This might be due to some bite in the cheek inside due to putting some spatula or forcep put inside for wide opening of mouth and there might be some soreness in the cheek.
Nothing to worry,within a day or two it will be healed up.
Apply glycerine or some analgesic gel.
Ok and bye.
