Hi! I had my lower right impacted wisdom tooth extracted 5 days ago. This is the current condition of it. I’m worried I may have a dry socket though currently there’s no bad taste and bad smell in my mouth. I’m currently experiencing slight throbbing pains in the area of extraction. I tried poking it but it seems like a tissue or I don’t know it may be a stucked food debris. See photos attached.

It looks like normal epithelial repair tissue and healing good. Hopefully you are not experiencing outside swelling. Removing lower wisdom teeth can be very traumatic because the dentist/surgeon had to work inside the thick, dense jaw bone. The soreness should subside soon.
