The concern would be that there may be an infection developing. Other signs would be a fever, warmth over the affected area, a stiff neck
. Your difficulty in swallowing may indicate swelling in the back of your throat and around the area of the removed teeth which may be secondary to infection.
I suggest you take paracetamol
. Keep well hydrated with fluids. If you do not improve in 24 hours, I suggest you see your dentist
for further advice.
