I : I don't have the advantage of seeing you or your ct scans, but this sounds like a possibility might be buccal space cellulitis. Is there any fever, warmth, pain, or redness to the cheeks? It's odd you haven't responded to an appropriate course of antibiotics. The addition of a short-term course of steroids may help you with the swelling.
