keep area clean ,brush with soft brush and rinse with hydrogen peroxide and water mix three times a day. if face not swollen than you have no infection, if swelling occurs than call in for a antibiotic prescription.

Infection is not likely, but the oral surgeon with whom you have an appointment can better address this issue.
