5 weeks post #2 extraction

Oct 12, 2022
Hi all - my saga continues. 5 weeks ago I had my #2 upper second molar extracted. Recovery seemed fine. No dry socket or anything like that. Stitches seemed to fall out around weeks 3-4.

Now what I’m feeling is what I can describe as a pressure type sensation in the gums area. Anyone know what this is? I plan to see the surgeon to talk about it but he’s probably going to say all is healing normally. It almost feels as though there’s food stuck in the hole and I need to pull it out haha

The extraction site is totally pink with a bit of an indent still.
