Surgery on gums, roof of mouth swollen, cut and hurts while eating, cure?

I got surgery last Wednesday. They cut my gums open & attached a chain to a tooth so they could pull it down. My mouth was fine the first few days. Now the roof of my mouth is swollen & cut up & hurts when I eat anything. The spot that they cut open is fine, it s just the roof of my mouth that s hurting now. What can I do to cure it?

Dentist 's  Response
hi Dani,

From your quary, i could understand that you have a locked tooth which dentist is trying to pull by attaching a hook after exposing it from the gum.

the pain in the area around the tooth is normal as there bone remodelling is going on.
but the area of the pain according to you is center of the palate, i suggest you to visit your dentist as i dont know the position of the tooth which he is pulling.
if you post me the OPG, i could guide you better.

Dr. Vishal.
