Two weeks ago, I had a gum flap procedure on my lower right second molar. This tooth had a canal done and a few months after the procedure, the gum problem started. The periodontist said I needed to have gum flap surgery done. I agreed and had the procedure done. Bad tissues were scraped off of the bone then the bone around the tooth was filled and smoothed. The procedure went fine. The told me all’s well.
However, a few days later I had a dull pain on the gum. It was very uncomfortable to chew on that side and I had extreme sensitivity to anything hot. The dentist said the pain and sensitivity will go away, it just take some time. Has anyone else experienced this? How long did the discomfort last? I would be grateful for you feedback.
