Appears Normal: As the days pass, any pain or swelling should be decreasing. If not, see your oral surgeon.

Normal: What you are describing sounds perfectly normal. If you have pain and/or swelling that is not dismissing daily, bleeding, bad taste, bad smell, see the Dentist or specialist Oral Surgeon for a post-Surgical re-evaluation.
