Why are you not asking your dentist about this? This is not a website filled with dentists answering every hour of the day.
The Mayo Clinic is famously useful for medical questions. Maybe there are websites that deal with specific dental questions.
But, better, call your dentist's office and ask.
I probably sound snappish, but that is because I can't understand why your dentist hasn't talked with you more in the first place. You have had a major procedure and do rightfully need attention.
