I had my left wisdom tooth extracted a month a go. Thought it would be easy, but it turned out that both roots were hooked into my jaw.Seemed to heal well, but then I developed this white hard sore at the inner gum line by the tooth extraction, which would be irritated after I ate. Now there is redness and little white pimple sores along with the white hard sore by the tooth extraction site and spreading out. It is irritated after eat. Should I contact my dentist and have it checked?

  • Yes, definitely you should get it checked if it is incresing in size and becoming red. It means that the area is being irritated and it will not heal till the cause is not removed. Schedule an appointment with your dentist and get it checked.
