No: No, ur gums r not healed yet it will still take a couple more wks at least. No, u should still try to keep a softer diet and stay away fr the surg areas and keep rinsing with warm salt water gently. No, if u haven't gotten a dry socket yet ur not likely to: the symptoms usually start ~3-4 days postop. The surgeon should have scheduled u to return for PO chk in 7 days - do this!
A 34-year-old female asked:

None really: Depends: did u bite ur own tongue or did something else bite ur tongue? If u bit ur own tongue, nothing much to do rinse w salt water let it heal. If it's bleeding severely and won't stop go to er or oral surgeon for stitches and antibiotics that would have to be from external trauma like car crash or punch. If u accid bit ur own tongue & it starts becoming infected go to dentist for antibiotic.

Similar To A Canker : If the dots are quite sensitive they could be something like a canker sore or cold sore. Sometimes these happen during episodes of increased stress. There is really nothing u can do for them that will be terribly effective unfortunately- they just have to run their course- usually a week - 10 days. Try rinsing the area with warm to hot salt water; if u can find an ointment called zilactin that wil.
