Hello got my tooth extracted on Thursday. I haven't eaten solid foods, I have been rinsing my mouth out but not swishing food around. The pain is kind of less but the same. My real worry is how it looks. The excavation hole is black and white. It doesn't feel extra sensitive anything I don't think I see puss.

The "blackness" is a dark blot clot. The whiteness is damaged skin sloughing off (like a wet scab). Yes, you should be brushing pls.
