Hey so I know I am completely neurotic about this, but I am a worrier what can I say. On Wednesday I had four teeth on my upper left side root planed, then I had a tooth extracted from my lower left side. There was a lot of infection under the tooth, so she spent some time scraping it all out, then she had some issues with stopping the bleeding. After inserting a plug, the bleeding stopped, and things look fine. The hole seems to be closing etc. My concern is that it is now Sunday morning and my cheek is STILL swollen. Not quite as much as day 2 and 3, but enough that it is bothering me a bit. I am also still a bit sore off and on. So really I just want someone to tell me if this is within the realm of normal (swelling and a little pain) four days after an extraction. Thanks in advance!
