Yesterday I had four teeths, all part of a bridge extracted ( 9-14) Shortly after the novocaine worn off I started feeling the healthy tooth, no. 8, next to the site of extractions feel larger and hitting against the inside of my mouth. This is the front tooth!
The surgeon told me there was a complication and when pulling no. 14 he perforated the space to my sinus, which will take time to clot and heal. I noticed that he did not pull the teeths but cut the bridge and removed the roots by splitting my gum.
Why does the healthy, tooth 8 feel strange, as if larger and hitting against my mouth? Any suggestions?
Thank you.

Probably just temporary effects of nerve and gum tissue swelling/irritation caused by the extraction work. Everything has to calm down and heal. Right now that part of your gum doesn't feel normal. The tooth isn't larger, maybe it just "feels" that way because the area around it is irritated and probably a bit swollen.

FWIW, I've never had much if any work done on my teeth, but had 2 very old fillings replaced recently. For a couple of days afterward the tooth they worked on feels different even though it really hasn't changed. Possibly I'm just more sensitized to it at the moment.
