I had a gum graft 5 days ago. I had some swelling but no pain. I had a connective tissue graft on 3 top teeth and was wondering how you know it is healing correctly. I have read some posts saying it should be white before it goes red however mine is looking extremely good and pretty normal (apart from the stitches). I have read so many conflicting stories and so have been expecting pain or something to go wrong. Is it possible for everything to look normal after only 5 days?
