I had to remove one lower back tooth due to a fracture in one of the roots that consequently was getting infected and presented risks to the neighbouring teeth as well as the gum. It has been a week since then and the gum area where the tooth was is not completely closed up yet. Does anyone know how long the 'healing period' is supposed to take? It's bothering me to see (and tongue-feel) that gaping hole.
