Hi Sam, It could be normal. You didn't say how long it has been since your extraction. It is actually more important to monitor how the area feels than how it looks. If your pain is decreasing and you are following your dentist's advice to avoid getting a dry socket, you should be good. If you notice an increase in pain, swelling or redness that spreads to the other tissues, or if you get a fever, you should call your dentist as those things can be a sign of infection or dry socket. It is always OK to call your dentist if you are not sure you are healing normally. I hope you feel better soon.

Thanks for writing,
