how long is granulation tissue meant to stay in the extraction site for? I had two premolar extractions 2 weeks ago and I’m just wandering what the holes should look like! Do they heal from the bottom up?

Granulation tissue usually does not form in extraction site unless there are some traumatic event(s) happening to connective tissue. Usually in uncomplicated extractions, there are blood clots, then reparative epithelial tissue and final closure. Even evidence of recent teeth extractions can appear on x-rays for up to 4-6 months.
