Extractions: Depending on condition of teeth removed and how long ago additional tissue may result but should resorb with time. See the dentist who removed the teeth if tissue remains

Examination: Flap of gum tissue may or may not be related to your extraction. See the Dentist who di$ your extraction for reevaluation.
