[Photo Attatched] Dry Socket or Infection?

May 12, 2013

I had 2 upper teeth extracted 3 days ago. I checked my mouth this morning to see how the healing process was going, instead I found this (photo attatched).

Full details. Around the age of 14 one of my baby teeth became loose, over time the tooth never fell out. A year or so later a permanent tooth started breaking through the roof of my mouth just to the side of the baby tooth that never came out. Over time the baby tooth started to decay and chip away. I am now 22 and finally had both teeth removed.

As you can see in the photo there is a lot of whiteness where I had both teeth removed. To the center of the edge of one of them, there seems to be a small hole that goes deep into the gum.

I am not experiencing too much pain, no more then I expected anyway. I will be contacting my dentist tomorrow as today is a weekend.

Any insight until then would be great.
