Symptoms: Your symptoms are indicative of inflammation and/infection. The best practitioner to treat your son is the one that knows him best, the one that did the extraction. Brush area gently but thoroughly twice a day. Imperative that adjacent teeth be flossed every day. If soreness increases, or if your son runs a fever, seek local help immediately.
