    There looks like a hole in my lip near the wisdom tooth extraction site. Is this normal? Please help I am very nervous about it. This is the morning after wisdom teeth removal. Thanks

    Looks OK. It takes a minimum of 2 weeks for the wound to start to close up, and up to 3 months to completely heal over and round off. If you get any food scraps in the wound while it is healing, it usually does no harm and works its way out.
