In a word no, I'm not overly concerned. I'm sorry you've bruised up some though. Must have been a rough extraction appointment. Sometimes some of the blood trickles into the surrounding tissue and thus the bruised look. Which will resorb and go away, but it may be more day to day, week to week. I've had more of these with patients than I'd prefer. Every Dentist, sadly has a few here and there when we are dealing with extractions...

Hang tough if you can, and in a short time it will be gone.
