You need a dentist!: And your question(s) is ? See a dentist to evaluate your symptoms, diagnose the problem(s) and recommend treatment. Swelling usually indicates an infection which if left untreated can lead to serious complications. Therefore, the sooner you see a dentist for treatment, the sooner you will feel better and be out of danger.

Seek exam: Your symptoms are not specific enough without examination. X-rays will be needed for a diagnosis. Pain in the front and a swollen cheek may be cause by 2 separate causes. You may have more than one problem and need to get to the bottom of it by seeking examination with a dentist. Be sure to inform them you are having symptoms so they can schedule you appropriately.

Extract the teeth: Antibiotic to address the swollen cheek. Surgically extract impact wisdom teeth since they probably will have to come out sooner or later. Painful palate will be address last and could be of many reasons such as dry mouth, poor occlusion. Schedule with your dentist to make proper diagnosis and treatment.

Coincidental: Painful palate and impacted wisdom teeth probably not associated. Swollen cheek and problematic wisdom teeth can be associated, but swelling can have another cause. Only way to find out what's wrong and therefore what rx is indicated is to go for examination before problems get out of hand. Call your dentist, now, today.
