Hi all,

I had a tooth removed 4 days ago on the 29th of september. The photos are what the socket look like today. Should i be concerned ? I brush twice a day and salt water rinse a minimum 3 times but it is usually more. All i am eating is soup , mashed potatoes and gravy. I do have a funny taste in my mouth but have just put this down to the surgery. Please help as i am a bit worried. I would also like advice on when i can eat solid foods again. I am stressing over this to be honest.

Thank you all.

Good day

The area doesn't seem very inflamed. If you don't have any severe pain, the area is most likely healing normally. Leave as is and allow healing to take place. Can take 2-3 weeks.
