  • Were you told to use a mouth rinse? Are you allowed to brush? The grittiness probably just means that the left side needs brushed more than the right- I am just guessing here. Probably the gums will heal about as quickly as you usually heal up. I think I'd call the dental office and ask. This way you'll know for sure.
