Post wisdom teeth extraction and torus palate

Hi there

I recently had my wisdom teeth extracted. I am recovering well as there is no longer any pain and I don''t have to take any more pain killers. Just what I have noticed is loose gum flaps around my other molars and loose gum around my cheeks. Will this heal overtime. I must still schedule a follow up appointment but wanted to ask here as well.

After many visits to denists I was never told I had a torus palate until I had my wisdoms extracted by the surgeon. He said I have nothing to worry about. I thought that''s how all our mouths are. I want to know what causes this please.

yes, it should heal.
it is a normal developmental anomaly- definitely nothing to worry about.
