After having a broken tooth (with just the root showing above the gum) taken out a few days ago, is it normal to have white stuff from the socket? Was wondering whether the dentist failed to remove it completely or it is some bone fragments, or maybe an infection as it is painful. Also, the gum at the side of the socket looks horrific as it has split open. Shouldn't the dentist put stitches in or will it heal itself? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

The first two photos was taken two days after the extraction and the last is day three.
