Apicoectomy Scars

I have had a apicoectomy for over 5 years now. It is a long story. My tooth and jaw were causing so much pain, and my face was still slightly swollen. I begged that there was an infection. Dentists (7 of them) kept telling me there was no infection. My tooth was extracted. Thought amalgaman filling at apex was the problem. Still have the swelling. Turns out it is scaring in the lining of gingiva where they made the incision. Scaring is causing pain, and swelling. Is there any way to get rid of this scarring so that it can improve the natural contours of my face, and also the pain associated with the scar tissue?
