  • the swelling which is on the right side and under the tongue seems to be due to tongue piercing. After tongue piercing, till the healing occurs one has to be careful as it can easily get infected. So keep good oral hygiene. For left side swelling it looks like that it is due to growing wisdom tooth. You have to go to dentist and get exam and xray done. If the sufficient space for growth of wisdom teeth is not there then they are called impacted wisdom teeth and needs to be extracted.
