Had lower first molar out on Tuesday. Pain had been subsiding until yesterday when I noticed my gums around the extraction site were really red and inflamed as well as sore to touch. Still some swelling and soreness around the jaw line but have also been getting shooting pains down the front of my neck. Overall the pain isn't too bad, but I am worried about a soft tissue infection. The actual extraction site doesn't appear to be sore but the clot is smelling a bit. Any advice would be greatly appreciated as dentist is shut.
