biopsy from roof of mouth causing extreme pain in teeth and roof

My dentist saw a dark area on my soft palate and had me go to an oral surgeon who said that he thought that it was nothing but we could biopsy it.  So he did almost a week ago.  Although I understand that this kind of surgery would be slower to heal due to the fact that it is in the mouth and wet, the area that he biopsied (about the size of a nickel) is whitish/gray and very painful.  What's even worse, there are 2 teeth right in front of where the biopsy was that are so sore that I can't even touch them.  This has gotten worse instead of better.  Right after the procedure, I felt fine until about 3 or 4 days ago and then the pain started and has gotten worse each day.  i have an appt. to see him soon but am just wondering what you think it could be.
thanks

Surgery in the palate is typically more painful than other areas in the mouth. The increased pain on the 3rd day is not uncommon when there is bone involved. I would recommend calling your oral surgeon and discussing your concerns with him. He might have you come back sooner to check the area.
