Quite Normal: You had a surgical procedure and the surrounding tissues are bruised and inflamed. Not sure if you have an infection, but call your surgeon for a follow up just to be sure.

See a dentist: If you are cheek biting there's probably little if any room for that tooth. It may need to be extracted.
