I had a back lower molar removed on mon, its now wed and the area doesnt seem to hurt but looks like some white loose stuff around the clot, is this normal?

Hi Sm, Some extraction sites have whitish tissue as they are healing. The main thing at this early stage is that it feels fine. Most extraction sites look unusual compared to your other gum tissue for a few days-weeks while the tissue is healing.

Be sure to follow the instructions your dentist gave you and contact your dentist if you have concerns or questions.

Thanks for writing,
