White in extraction site, and little swellig...what it is?
Due to infection in tooth, my tooth removed 15 days before. and to drain dr gave small cut near tooth below gum,
previously my half face was fully swelled , lips also.
Now swelling is decreasing but lips feels little heavy while talking.
why it is?
Yesterday i felt that blood is coming from the socket of tooth removed, i looked in the mirror and saw some small white soft , something is there.
I touched it with cotton earbud and blood came but little only.
I am worrying now What is it exactly, is it ok ?
How many days it will take to recover?
I'm not sure but you should see your dentist for follow-up questions and care.
It sounds like you had a bad infection.
Hopefully you have taken or are taking antibiotics. White tissue could be granulation tissue which is normal as the area heals. 15 days seems like a lot time to heal but if you are recovering from the infection that could impact healing time. Is your lower lip still numb? You may have paresthesia if your nerve was damaged that should improve with time.
All your questions deserve an answer from your dentist. If you don't have a follow up visit scheduled you should make an appointment.
