Extraction and implant discomfort

I had a root fractured tooth extracted and an implant post placed ten days ago.  I am just finishing up amoxicillin.  My gums on one side of the extraction site is puffy and tender.  Is this normal after so much time as past?  The dentist took an x Ray last week (five days after extraction) and said all looked well.
