It sounds like a normal post operative response to the extractions. However, without a visual exam it is impossible to know for sure. You should have a 7-10 day post-op exam scheduled with your surgeon, at which time he/she can check the sites. If you do not have an exam scheduled, call and make an appointment to have the areas examined.

May have small piece of bone that needs removal. May have infection. See the Dentist or Oral Surgeon for post-surgical reevaluation.
