I had gingival flap surgery 6 weeks ago. Should I be concern about the new swelling and bleeding?

Hi there, thank you for your question. Anytime you have bleeding and swelling to the gums, especially after a periodontal procedure, it should be closely monitored by your periodontist and given a diagnosis as to why the bleeding and swelling is occurring. Healthy gums should not have bleeding or swelling, so please visit your periodontist once again and have him/her explain to you the reasons why. Best of luck!
