Hi It is probably the wisdom tooth which is causing the problem.
Next Steps
Visit dentist and get a Xray done. If it is in an unfavourable position, get it pulled out. If not a procedure called operculectomy can be done.

Hi The swelling in cheek can be due to an accidental cheek bite or wisdom tooth eruption . If associated with wisdom tooth you can start on antibiotics and pain killer , the symptoms should subside in 2-3 days . If it recurs then you need to see a dentist in person Regards
