In brief: Surgical Extractions

Surgical extractions often require a gingival flap and bone removal to gain access to the tooth.
Together with the area being inflamed and possibly infected, it is to be expected that healing can take a number of days to over a week. Your dentist/surgeon is best prepared to to follow up with you.
