Got my molar extracted 14 days ago. The past 3 days the comfort level has improved day by day. Then this morning I woke up with discomfort and all day it’s been a nagging discomfort. I’m feeling very discouraged

The area looks inflamed. I would suggest going to your dentist for a consult. Depending on the pain level, he might only need to prescribe you some anti-inflammatory meds

I went back to him and he cleaned that white gunk out with a q tip. Now inside the socket is sort of a white layer but the discomfort is still there, though to a lesser degree. I’m 16 days post op. Had an extraction and bone graft.

He said it just needs to heal longer and that there’s no infection
