Wa alaikumsalam, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Complaints of tingling and swelling that occur to you after tooth extraction can occur due to several possibilities, including:
The inflammatory process after tooth extraction
Injury to nerves
Infection of the teeth and / or gums
So our advice is that you should go back to the dentist who handled you, to do an evaluation, whether the complaints you feel are still in a normal condition after tooth extraction or not. This needs to be clarified directly by the dentist who treats you because after the tooth is removed, the tissue around your tooth will definitely experience inflammation and potentially become infected, especially if any of the stitches are loose. Therefore, direct examination is mandatory to be able to predict your condition. If indeed your dentist states the teeth and gums are okay, check with a neurologist to determine the possibility of injury to the nerves.
Meanwhile, what you can do to reduce swelling and discomfort is to compress the swollen cheek with a cold compress, gargle with warm salt water, avoid eating hard and sharp-edged foods, take over-the-counter pain medications by reading the rules listed, apply clove oil to the affected area and keep brushing your teeth twice a day with a soft bristled brush, with the help of mouthwash or dental floss. Get well soon.
That's all, hope it helps.
