Contact : Contact the dentist who pulled the tooth and request a follow-up appointment. This may represent a problem such as infection or it could be an intentional readjustment of tissue to accommodate the denture.

When : When ever you have a concern about an irregularity or a change in the relationship of your mouth tissue with your appliance, you should definitely go and see your dentist and have it evaluated. There could be some recurrent infection from a small fractured piece of tooth or bone. Have it looked at. Dr neil mcleod dds dentistry that lasts - quality that counts.

I : I don't really understand what you describe, but it is very common to have post surgical visits, especially if the surgery was recent. An evaluation from the dentist or surgeon should help.
