Hello I had a molar extraction 11 days ago going onto the 12th day , sorry I’ve been asking a lot of questions recently I’m just trying to make sure , I’ve read online that dry socket is painful yet I haven’t had any pain yet , but I looked a my extraction site and it’s seen empty ? Is this dry socket ?

Do you have a bad taste or smell in your mouth associated with the socket?

Thank you for the reply , I don’t believe so I don’t notice any irregular smells or tastes , and it’s still not painful , would you say this is dry socket ?

No I would not. It seems like you just heal a bit slower than expected. Sometimes a tooth socket can take up until 3 weeks to close fully.
If you have no pain, just leave it as it is.

Thank you for the reply , the extraction itself was rather awkward , was working my tooth for just over an hour before it came out so I guess the long healing time makes sense , the original hole was quite big so it definitely has closed up a bit

Hello just a follow up question , I checked my extraction tonight and noticed that it’s literally all gone white ? Still haven’t experienced any pain but I’ve still got concerns of dry socket , any help would be appreciated
