My wisdom teeth got take. Out 4 days ago and there’s a foul stench in my mouth and kinda taste like a liquid or something that makes it smell like that I saw some brown stuff and some whiteish around it and with the syringe they gave me I cleaned it off and seems like little pieces were coming off then a flake of brown went into my sink and I can see the blood clot but there’s a little white surrounding the hole I also had some other teeth pulled for braces for specification I’m talking about the one in back
picture is a bad sorry but it’s a decent size hole do I need to see a dentist or will I be fine

If you are able to manage any pain, then there is no need to go back to the dentist for a dressing or similar. Dry sockets represent a delayed healing. They will heal with time, but most people need some pain relief in the manner of a sedative dressing just to get them through the rough patch.
