couple of white spots on gums where wisdom tooth was extracted

I had all of my wisdom teeth extracted a few months ago. I healed up fine for the most part, I had some hyperplastic tissue that swelled up where my bottom right tooth used to be but the dentist said that it'd go away on its own, and it did. After that everything seemed normal, but today I've noticed that, if I apply pressure to that spot, even if it's with my tongue, that it hurts a bit. Nothing excruciating, just some minor pain. I took a look in my mouth and where my tooth used to be are two white spots, they look kind of like pimples. I'm not sure if they're causing the pain or not, I don't have them on the other side of my mouth. Any idea what they are? Could they be leftovers of that hyperplastic tissue?
