    Hi guys!
    Had my bottom molar out 6 days ago.
    First few days went fine blood clot ect then went yellow.
    Not it’s changed to a black/brown colour.
    The walls of my socket are white or bone.
    I have an ulcer either side of the extraction site and my tooth behind it’s gum has completely split.
    Please tell me it’s not dry socket??
    Thank you

    Dry sockets happen 3-4 days post-op, and are characterised by foul taste and breath, and enormous pain. You are in the clear.
