Swelling 4 days after wisdom teeth extracted

I got all 4 wisdom teeth pulled 4 days ago, and I still have swelling only on one side of my face. The other side has little to no swelling, but the left side o my face looks like I'm a chipmunk hiding acorns in my cheeks! There isn't a lot of pain, but all the information I read has said the swelling should go down after 2 days at most. I'm worried it might mean something more serious, like an infection. Anyone else experienced this?
