Post dental cleaning symptoms

Hi, new here... Had my teeth cleaned two days ago, Monday, and I'm noticing that my right cheek seems a bit swollen or something. It does don hurt, my jaws do not hurt and there is no pain in my teeth. Also I keep not-quite-clenching my teeth, more like I dunno what...closing my mouth a little hard? I'm not sure what's going on...if anything. Now, the dentist...scuse me, dental hygienist always sits on my right, there for having me turn to my right and pulling on the right side of my mouth. Could be something? Constantly holding it open, away from my teeth. And then there's that suction thing always hanging on to/out of the right side of my mouth.

This is a bit troubling. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

it's probably because she was pulling on your cheek, if symptoms don't go away within a few days and you still have concerns call and ask them about it.

Hi! I also have a dental problem. I have some gum and tooth sensitivity for a day or so after a dental cleaning. I want to know that could it be dangerous for me?
