In brief: Abscess
If you had a toothache that spontaneously stopped but now your cheek is sore, you likely have an abscessed tooth.
The nerve can die and the pain can subside. However, if infection is present, the it can cause the cheek and surrounding perodontium (gums and bone) to be sore.

In brief: Infection
Because the infection in the tooth has probably now spread to your jaw bone and surrounding muscles.
This will only get worse and may be life threatening. Get help now!
