soreness around my gums after extraction for how long?
I had my molar pulled Tuesday 4 days ago, there is soreness around my gums. Its not really sore anymore in the socket, it's the gum on the outter that is slightly swollen and just tender enough to just bother me and or keep me edgie. It's my molar on the bottom in the middle. IS this normal, I am afraid to call my dentist on a Saturday, but is it normal for the swelling and soreness in the outter gum area?If So, for how long? Thank You, **Julie**
