    From the limited view of the image, the extraction sites look good. As long as you are not experiencing any swelling, just let it heal. Lower wisdom teeth are more traumatic to remove. You should consider removing your tongue ring (at least before bedtime) because it can damage your teeth and gums.

    White stuff is good. It is the epithelial healing tissue.
