The extraction site itself seems to healing fine, but the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gum</span>s
around the tooth
next to it are swollen and very sore
. The dentist put me on antibiotics (ees), but after
4 days, the swelling and pain are no better. The dentist said the swelling was just trauma from the extraction, and not to worry, just keep taking meds. I'm worried because, as I said, the pain and swelling are still present, and I would think that after
4 days, the swelling wouls start to go down.
