Gum around tooth next to extraction is red and inflamed

Feb 22, 2019
I had a tooth extracted back in feb, it was a molar. Since then the gums around the tooth next to it has been red and inflamed and it seems as if the gum is receding on the side of the tooth facing the extraction site.

I have done everything to fix this. I swish with salt water multiple times a day. I have tried oil pulling. I am flossing twice a day and brushing 2 to 3 times a day.

I have seen the oral surgeon 3 times over this and he says its nothing to be concerned with. That sometimes the gums of the teeth around extraction sites will have the gums recede and can be inflamed for some time. This doesnt sound right.

Anyone know anything about this?
