Swelling has gone to his cheek and his mouth, but only on the side of his face where tooth was pulled. What could this be?

In brief: Not normal healing
Check with your dentist asap.
Sounds like swelling secondary to an infection.

In brief: Common reaction
The swelling can be a common reaction to having a tooth pulled.
If the swelling remains or becomes painful then infection in the socket is a consideration and you should see the dentist. Try homeopathic hypericum. It works wonders for pain and swelling after a tooth is pulled.
