What causes extra sensitivity on the gum line?

I just had a gingivectomy done a week ago. My mouth is all healed, but there is one spot on my gum line that is just extra sensitive. It I touch it, it hurts. If i drink or eat anything and it hits this certain spot it hurts as well. Do you know what the cause could be?

hey...in my opinion there is nothing much to worry in that..its on the process of healing....all areas wont heal together sometimes...so try not to touch that side for few more days.....do warm salt water gargle twice....and moreover be happy and cool.....have a nice day!!!!
