Mouth issues after quit tobacco chewing

I am 18, and I dipped tobacco on and off for two years. I quit six months ago and now my only tobacco intake is the occasional cigar (once a month-ish). My mouth seems to be sore and I have these things hanging from my tongue that resemble stalagtites. Also, the floor of my mouth has puffed up a little ( symmetrical shapes on each side). I am not sure if it was like that before or if I am just being paranoid. I have my normal (every six months) dentist appointment in about a month. Should I be worried about these symptoms?

It seems you do not have a problem. It is appreciable that you have quit tobacco chewing. Smoking can deteriorate the condition of your gums. So please quit the habit.
